Here is a great one from his college playing days! According to him he completed this pass.

I miss Coach Yeagle. He is a great coach and even better person. When my brother played for him and our father had a heart attack, Coach Yeagle and Coach Rash were the first 2 people to come see us an

#CoachesFromTheirPlayingDays

 

For 30 years, when Covington Catholic football players thought of "coach," chances are that this is the man they thought of. Curtis Lynn Ray.

 

Here's longtime Cov Cath head football coach Lynn Ray from his own playing days back in 1963 as a senior and starting quarterback at Boone County High School, and then again 1967 as a safety for Eastern Kentucky University's football team.

Trinity's head football coach Bob Beatty is #1 in Kentucky for state finals appearances (16) and #1 in Kentucky for state titles (14). Here's Beatty in his senior year of high school as QB for the Butler High School Bears in Butler, MO in 1972.

Can't figure out how to upload photos on here from my phone but here are two that come to mind for me:

 

Will Wolford - started his career at St. Xavier High School as a player then went on to play college football at Vanderbilt. Was drafted in the 1st round of the '86 draft by the Buffalo Bills. He played in 3 Super Bowls, was a 3 time Pro Bowler, and was a 2nd team All Pro in '92. He played for 13 years in the NFL, a total of 191 games, and started every one of them. In my opinion, Wolford is one of the most underrated players in NFL history. After retiring from the NFL he came back home to coach his Alma Mater, St. X.

 

David Jones - Coach Jones played for Belfry and helped the Pirates win their first 2 State Championships in school history in '03 and '04. After high school, Jones played four solid years at the University or Kentucky. After college he signed a undrafted FA contract with the Baltimore Ravens but never played a game in the NFL. Afterwards he came home and was an assistant to Coach Philip Heywood at Belfry before taking the HC job for the Phelps Hornets. To say that he turned that very small 1A schools football program around is a HUGE understatement. Jones left the Hornets to become the Head Coach at 4A Bourbon County last year and just completed his first year as the head man for the Colonels football program.

My head coach at Saint X was John Meihaus. Coach played at Manual then at UK under Bear Bryant, with one of our assistant coaches. As you might have guessed, having learned from Coach Bryant, practices were easy and always had water flowing!

That's Meihaus over at far right in the newspaper photo. No idea what number he was on the Crimson's team, but that's their whole 1940 team, from his senior year as a halfback.
