    Without a proven qb they might have a tough season. They do return a good OL, RB and Receivers. Thier defense was really good also. They graduate around 25 Seniors from the team that won 5A.

    I don't know a whole lot about many of the 5A schools but I think at this point Bowling Green would be my pick to win it all but like I said I'm definitely no expert.

    Losing AJ and Butler are huge holes to fill but Eviston and his staff will find replacements and they will be a Top 5 team again,

    They return the entire o-line, running back, full back, will have and two 6’5 receivers back. I think they really only lost 3 or 4 on offense and on defense even with losing Cam they still return at least six starters I believe. QB is a big hole but still think they will be loaded.

    Always been a believer that a team is better with a multi year starting QB. Too many coaches and fans get caught up with seniority’s. With the talent that is going to surround him, that will ease the growing pains if there are any. CCH AND BG will be top dogs with Highlands lurking.

    I've heard BG is loaded coming back so I have to think they are the favorite going in. I imagine CCH will be right there in the mix though.

    Graduating starters:

    Offense
    RG Maile (2 way starter)
    TE Butler (2 way starter)
    WR Pike (2 way starter)
    WR Lenihan (2 way starter)
    QB Mayer

    Defense
    DL Deters
    DL Maile (2 way starter)
    LB Butler (2 way starter)
    LB Dyer (also played a lot of offense at RB)
    DB Pike (2 way starter)
    CB Schneider
    CB Lenihan (2 way starter)

    That is 12 starting positions CCH will need to replace. That is a lot of talent lost. A lot, including a very special QB and MLB.

    If we go to the backups, 11 of the 2 deep backup positions were filled by seniors.

    The CCH roster is losing a lot. This will be a big challenge for the program next year.

    The good news for CCH fans is they have two D1 talents who play both sides of the ball returning next year - TE/DE Mayer and WR/DB Coldiron. They also have a good RB returning - McGinness. And as mentioned above 4 returning OL led by the big and talented Jones. Special players make a huge difference and are the foundations you build a winner around.

    No. South Warren and Bowling Green will both be better than CovCath next season. The 5A state title will be the winner of that game when these two meet in the playoffs.

    The JV team went 7 - 1, only losing to Trinity 21 - 7. Most of the wins were convincing win. Hopefully, CovCath has reached the point where rising juniors can be plugged in without a significant loss of production. Always nice to have 4 of 5 lineman returning to help break in new starters.

    Maybe. Maybe not. We will find out in October.
