    2001 Bardstown Tigers

    Personally, I feel this team that went 15-0 and won the Class 2A Title doesn't get the ink and respect they probably deserve for as good as they were.

    Bardstown laid waste to their schedule that year and a 21-0 win over a solid Glasgow team was the closest anyone ever came to them. They blasted an excellent Prestonsburg team in the State Finals.

    All told they would outscore their opponents 751-139 on the year with 10 of those games being by a 5 TD margin or more.

    John Wesley Monin was the QB and they had a pair of stud RB's in Jaime Cotton and Maurice Crowe. Joseph Blackmon was a dynamic two-way player as well.

    Who I remembers this team? Anything you want to add? Was this one of the great small school teams to ever come through in Kentucky?

    I remember that Glasgow game the Scotties was coming off back to back runner up seasons where they lost to a great Boyle Co squad both years Boyle finally moved on to 3A that year and then Bardstown got moved up from 1A and they were loaded but as good as they were offensively they really shined on defense the score of that game was 0-0 with one play left in the third and the Scotties a predominately running team couldn’t get anything done on the ground so they tried to go deep and the ball was intercepted and returned for a touchdown and it kind of just snowballed from there so that was three straight years I truly believed the Scotties had exceptional teams that ran into some of the best high school teams I’ve ever seen.

    I agree. That team was loaded with talent and well coached.
