    St. X beat Fairdale in 1991's 2nd Round 13-6

    Fairdale entered 11-0 and the consensus #1.
    St. Xavier was 9-2. Their two losses were Male and Trinity.

    X made a run to the finals and fell to George Rogers Clark.

    I remember that game against GRC. They had couple really good backs. It was close game.

    If I remember correctly, GRC knocked off Trinity the week before .....ran the wing-T I believe.

    Correct. I think they were the only team in history to beat both T and X in the same postseason (or maybe it was in back to back weeks) until Male did it a couple years ago.

    Names of special note:
    As mentioned Chester Ford was a special player, whatever happened to him?
    K David Akers was a Junior
    Current UK OL Coach John Schlarman's Junior year
    Pikeville's DeAnthony Honaker was a manchild.
    Scotty Russell!
    Daymon Carter was a bad dude.


    Also, who was Steel Valley, PA for Danville or Boyle fans that may remember?
    Interesting interstate matchup back when teams weren't travelling huge distances. Would love to know what the story was behind that game, obviously they were very good if they beat Danville in their prime.
    Chester Ford played 4 years at Tennessee. He was converted to a FB there.

    This year marked the beginning of Danville's 42 game winning streak after the loss to the PA team in the opening game. They would not lose until the heartbreaker in the AA semi-final by 1 to Prestonsburg.
