Would like to see CovCath play STX or Trinity at some level every year. A home & home FR/JV doubleheader would create a lot of interest. I can’t understand why Moeller & Cincy STX can travel to Louisville but CovCath doesn’t. 

Maybe because there is not a glaring reason for CovCath to do so?

The JV team usually plays the school the varsity is playing that week. There is no shortage of frosh teams in NKY/Cincy to fill out the schedule without driving to Louisville and back. CovCath has played Cincy X's frosh team somewhat regularly. And CovCath did play a home/home JV series with the Rocks a few years back. At the varsity level, it makes more sense from a gate perspective to play a GCL South team than travel to Louisville. The GCL South teams bring good crowds, are easy to get to go (all about 20-25 minutes away), and have good scheduling relationships with the Colonels in multiple sports. 

All that being said, I wouldn't mind watching a frosh/JV doubleheader. Trinity/Lou. X would likely win most of the matchups, but CovCath would compete well most years.

As I understand it, this has been the exact rationale of the football/athletic department of Cov Cath. It's a whole lot of work for the frosh/JV teams and fans to get 100 miles down to Louisville when the GCL South (Moeller, LaSalle, Elder, Cincy St. X) are all within 15 or 20 miles and offer competition that's very much on par with what we're going to find in Louisville.

I believe CovCath also has a froshmore home game on 9-12 vs Dixie

Cov Cath has separate JV and freshman teams - they don't practice together.

I don't know if Cov Cath has agreed to only play sophomores during the game, or if Dixie is just going ahead and playing their froshmore team against Cov Cath's JV team, but Cov Cath is hosting the game on Saturday and has it listed simply as "JV" on the Colonel Athletic Network's website.

CovCath won 29 - 27 in triple overtime.

Exciting game.

Not a lot of separation between the two teams last night.

They had some guys who were clearly talented on the Cov Cath freshman team. QB Evan Pitzer looks like he has a pretty great arm as a freshman, and they had some solid running and receiving looks out of Charlie Dieruf, Owen Leen, Willie Rodriguez. One of the coaching points those guys need to learn is not to step backward and lose their forward momentum when they're trying to shake defenders. The offensive line looked pretty disjointed, speaking honestly. They're freshman, so this is new to some of them, undoubtedly...and with practice being what it is, reps are what it's really going to take to see them look more cohesive...but it will be nice to see what Pitzer and the other guys in the offensive backfield can do when they're not scrambling, haha. Kicker Alex Brock was really impressive. His PATs were straight, high, through the uprights, and they were landing at the back edge of the track. Glad to see we've got someone in the pipeline ready to follow up Trey Gronotte when he graduates in the spring.

Campbell's offensive line was BIG in comparison to Cov Cath's. Not sure what the actual sizes were, but it's not surprising that they had so much luck with their QB dives up the middle...they were three and four inches taller than anyone Cov Cath had up front, and probably had an average of 40 pounds more on each of Cov Cath's linemen. Their quarterback, Nate Smith, had a VERY nice arm, and was a solid runner as well.
