    All American at Georgia Tech. I don't think he played basketball his senior year at SK though

    Todd "Heff" Conley - Elkhorn City (basketball,baseball, football)

    A couple years ago when I was at EKU I ran into a guy at a ball game who was a cross checker or scout at the small level who relates his info to the guys at the upper levels. He had spent a lot of time traveling around small towns and small colleges and had saw a lot of people. Somehow where I was from became the topic and I told him Elkhorn City, he then proceeded to ask me about what the big Conley boy from up there was doing nowadays. I replied if I told you the truth you wouldn't believe me, his reply was, "thats a shame, hes the only kid I've ever saw who could have played pro ball in all three sports."

    I'm not saying where he should fall on the list, just that he deserves mention. Guy is an All-American at the collegiate level in a sport. Then was also the starting PG for one of the best teams in the region of the 2002-2003 season.

    Another name I'll throw out...Brandon Englemon from Holmes. Great football and basketball player who went on to play football at Michigan.

    Eddie Eviston, NewCath '97.

    We all know what he did at Georgetown. At NewCath, he was All State at safety. Also, he was the starting 2G for the basketball team for 2 years, and was our starting SS for 2 years.

    Had Evan gone to NewCath, he would have been a DI prospect at TE also. The kid is a flat out athlete. Last year our TurkeyBowl had him guarding Mark Krebs. Needless to say, I felt rather unathletic.

    If we are going to mention really good players who started in more than one sport, this will become the longest thread in BGP history. I can probably think of a hundred of these types of guys myself. Personally, if the player wasn't good enough to get a D1 scholarship or play professionally (baseball) then they aren't in the discussion IMO. In fact, they probably should have been good enough to go D1 in more than one sport.

    My list of nominees of recent grads (within the past 10 years) would include these guys (admittedly, the list is heavy with CCH guys).

    Brandent Englemon - Holmes '03 - Football, Basketball & Baseball
    Stephen Muck - Cov Cath '04 - Basketball & Baseball
    Luke Maile - Basketball & Baseball
    Cory Farris - Baseball & Football
    Evan McDole - Baseball & football
    Tim Grogan - Baseball & Football (SS & QB)
    Sean Ryan - Baseball & football (Catcher & RB)

    Statewide:
    JuJuan Spillman - PRP
    Keenan Burton - Manual
    Mike Bush - Male
    Chris Lofton - Mason Co. (did he play football his senior year? I don't think so, but remember him being a very good WR).
