Who is the 9th Region favorite??

Recommended Posts

Non other than CovCath, according to the BGP Preview...



1. Covington Catholic (24-7)- Todd Jacobs the 6’0 scoring dynamo will lead the Colonel brigade this year.


Jacobs who has been a three year starter is a clutch shooter who can score in a myriad of ways. He can beat you from behind the arc, are drive it or drive and hit the pullup. One of the toughest matchups for anyone in the region.


The supporting regiments aren’t too shabby either. Gritty, gutty Brandon Brown should take over the PG chores in absence of the graduated Timmy Tierney. Along with Jacobs and Brown, 6’1 Kurt Bovard returns to add another scoring option for CCH.


The middle should be owned by 6’4 Billy Schult, who improved over the course of last season. The Colonels do not lack height, there are several underclassman who measure 6’5 or taller, including Aaron Noll, and Clay Lampl. Offense should not be an issue in Park hills this winter.


2. Holmes (19-9) - The Bulldogs started last season like gang busters and well on their way to a possible repeat of the previous year’s region title, but a mid season implosion left the Dogs to stagger to the finish line before bowing to Dixie in the first round of the region.


Early in this preseason, the Dogs were dealt a blow when PG Duran Jefferson suffered a broken leg during football season, which will effectively sideline him for most of the season if not the entire season.


However, before anyone sheds tears for David Henley’s bunch, the Dogs cupboard is not bare. Holmes will likely have the best all-around player in the region in 6’1 Austin Hill who has steadily improved his game. Athletic, long and quick and has a knack of finding creases and seams to get the ball to the rim.


Also, returning will be Greg Rice who was dismissed from the team during the latter part of last season. If Rice is focused, very few in the region can handle him in the paint.


Jumping jack Arrez Henderson, 5’11; JR will return and will not catch people by surprise. A little undersized to play in the paint area, Henderson will likely get his chance to expand his game by playing some guard spots, and handle some PG duties.
