Toughest schedules?

Recommended Posts

I would imagine the teams that had the hardest schedules last year would again have difficult schedules this year. Last years top 10 toughest schedules were:

 

1) St. X

2) CovCath

3) Trinity

4) Manual

5) Highlands

6) Fern Creek

7) Boone

8) Henry Clay

9) Ryle

10) Dunbar

 

 

4 from Louisville, 4 from NKY, and 2 from Lexington.

 

The Top 50 from 2005

Dixie's looks pretty tough this year playing Highlands, Beechwood, and CovCath before district play.

 

CovCath's looks pretty brutal though. Boone County, Dixie, NCC, Beechwood, two Cincinnati GCL teams, and Bishop Watterson.

If someone has a more difficult schedule than St. X, I would like to see it...

 

You have an excellent point. Bowling Green, Lex Catch, Highlands, Trinity, Manual, PRP, Male. Pretty stout. It's a good thing the Tigers are 3 and 4 deep at every position.

Louisville St. X does have a tough schedule, but I am sticking with CovCath as having the toughest schedule. They definitely have the toughest out of district schedule. That is pretty much secure by them playing Cincy St. X and Elder this year, to go with the other out of district teams they have scheduled.

Saint X's is definitely tough, but I think I'll have to go with CovCath. They play Cincy Elder, Cincy Saint X, Columbus Watterson (wow!!!!) and of course Highlands. Also, consider RELATIVE strengths of schedule. In terms of student size/roster size, Saint X is much more favorably matched with its opponents than CCH is, given that CCH is not really that large of a school.

Whew!!! That would be a rugged schedule regardless of the size of the student body. Your point is well taken; the lower the enrollment of the school, the more difficult it is to compete. I wasn't aware that anyone in the state played a schedule more difficult than that of St. X. It appears that both Covington Catholic and St. X. duck no opponent and if possible go out of their way to build a rugged schedule. It is my belief that St. X. plays in the most difficult district in Kentucky high school football. In addition to St. X., the district features Male, Manual, PRP, Butler, and an improving Iroquois.

Out of district,the Tigers meet archrival Trinity, rugged Fern Creek,and 3A powers Highlands, Lexington Catholic and Bowling Green. However,they do not meet the Ohio powers that Covington Catholic has on its schedule. By the way, I would argue that Butler, Manual, and Iroquois have a rougher road than PRP, Male or St. X. in the district because they have to play this year's "Big Three" and PRP, Male or St. X. has only the play two of the "Big Three".:D

Excluding themselves, St. X. plays the top three teams in 4A and either the top two or three teams in 3A. I believe everyone can agree that this is an extremely impressive schedule.
