    I agree.

    In the final session Ryan Taylor and Kimbro stood out.
    Knipp hurt his ankle early Friday. He played through it but you could tell it had an affect on his game.

To enlighten you some about Zollo and Stenzel, both are presently taking college English and working. Both report to their colleges for summer school June 6th. Practice for the all star game would be the week they were to report to college. Hard to miss your first week of college classes as the classes are in a short time frame in summer school. This decision was not a easy one for either of them to make. They talked to their families and college coaches and decided not to try out. I respect their decision, and only wish others would too.
    How people get on here and try to shelter these kids with the lame excuses you have given for them not trying out is beyond me.

    Their own head coach said this was disappointing. Sounds to me that the excuses they gave him were lame too.

    Timmy Knipp is going to the same school as Stenzel, isn't he? I guess he wants to represent the state. Doesn't seem like those early starting classes are going to bother him.

    I would imagine there are a few other kids trying out that are taking AP English and working jobs who are trying out too.

    The Hickey kid is in the middle of trying to figure out a school for next year. I guess he could be taking college visits and so forth, but yet he is trying out.

    The Taylor kid is going to Louisville and probably has to take some early classes, but he is trying out.

    Look at Corey Rogers. Going to college on a football scholarship. My guess he probably needs to really be hitting the weights and will be reporting to summer school soon, plus he starts football this summer. Got to love this kid's desire to play.

    Im glad for the kids who now get to try out because these others have too much on their plates right now, as if every senior in high school preparing for college doesn't.

    I like your work Wireman, but I think their coach told the truth. If it were legit reasons he would have said so.
    All of this other stuff sounds like bunk and they just didn't want to play for whatever reason.
    I don't think we need to pile on the coach.
    A lot of other players that are trying out have a whole bunch on their plates as well.

    With that being Zollo, Stenzel and Behanan had great careers in high school, but their reasons for not playing doesn't fly.
    Behanan can't play but Taylor who is going to UL can?

    I'm not piling on the coach at all. I think if their excuses are legit, then the coach would have been better served to say that. The way he reacted makes me question the excuses. If they are legit, I don't blame them at all. If not, then it's disappointing.

    That is one of the reasons why I don't think they wanted to play.

    If you go back through the thread I mentioned they were not going to participate and GS said one hadn't made up mind, but they had.
    I even mentioned that Behanan was not likely to play.

    Bottom line, they just didn't want to play and that is disappointing.

I think that Behanan should have been Mr Basketball in KY but Hickey did have a very impressive State Tournament. I do think the Clark Co boys would have played if things would have been handled differently . We need to know all the facts before critizing.


    Here is a link to the web site where the results of who made the team will be announced.
