  1. In my 20 years of coaching, I have been as upper income publics and parochials, as well as inner-city public and an inner-city parochial. If you aren't aware of the differences in your student-athletes you will have a difficult time. There are different 'road blocks' for a coach in either instance. What is considered an after-thought in some schools will be a shock-awakener in others. Whereas a coach in a suburban school has to face parents pulling kids out of summer workouts for the family vacation, the same coach in the inner-city must face such as a kid calling and saying, "I can't come to

  5. I believe the new coach has some former staff members on board. Hey, it's just the way it is. When I was teaching and coaching it seldom occured, but now it does regularly. If a person has 25 years experience....two years from retirement....in a high paying district and is eligible for unused sick leave how can you leave if you coaching position is terminated? I always told young coaches to become the best classroom teacher in their school because you make a lot more as a teacher than as a coach.

  8. Enough conversation about the motivations for using the re-do year or your personal feelings about it. Cam is allowed to repeat his senior year, and he is repeating it. We've had plenty of other threads to discuss the details of the SSYP ad nauseam. This is not one of them.

  11. Newport's poverty level is something all coaches in the district have to work through. Lots of hard working players who have had a great work ethic instilled under Joe Wynn. Weinrich is going into a situation where the expectations are not state titles (right, wrong or indifferent). The school systems do not operate any where near similar, which is based upon the needs of the students of the district. Like everything else in life, each situation requires an approach that fits that situation and not a cookie cutter system. I do not know Coach Weinrich at all so I have no opinion as

  12. Franklin County has worked hard on fundraising to make some major upgrades to their facilities. Turf last year, and the weight room this year, track and surrounding areas in the next year. Hope this excitement continues to grow! Kids looked strong at the liftathon today! IMG_5206.mov

  15. The Ryle Baseball Twitter account - with all of 709 followers - tweeted this picture out on Sunday afternoon. No caption. There wasn't any use made of the "280 characters" for the tweet. Right now, a little less than 4 days later, the picture has been re-tweeted just over 3,000 times, and has received over 43,000 likes.

  16. The covid year in NCAA has created a mess. However, some kids are using it to their advantage. Talked to a kid at eastern and he had to redshirt when he first got there. Well he’s going to use this covid year as well, so he’s going to get six years from his scholarship and knock his masters out too.

  18. Congratulations to Trinity. Well deserved title, they were the best team in Kentucky this year. Trinity was also, by almost any measure, the best program in the state of Kentucky who had not yet won a state baseball championship. They're always good and had twice lost in the finals (Owensboro in 1983; Covington Catholic in 2002) so seeing them get over the hump is great for their fans. My five best programs without a state championship now looks something like this: Hazard - 14 region titles, 1 state runner-up McCracken County - 7 region titles, 2 state runners-up Apollo

  22. And region baseball tourneys, although they are over now. Bottom line is while this is a fun game, and great for the participants (my son was a scholarship winner his senior year), there is no real benefit to any top player who has a major college offer, and most who do now opt out. For those who do decide to play, it’s a nice capstone to their career.

  25. Are you forreal? Do you have any clue what kind of families are even attending those two schools? And you realize that like half or more of a local public school district's budget comes from property tax, right? Now which city do you think collects more in property taxes, Newport, or Fort Thomas? Newport: Median household income (in 2019 dollars), 2015-2019 - $37,435 Persons in poverty, percent - 32.4% Fort Thomas: Median household income (in 2019 dollars), 2015-2019 - $78,972 Persons in poverty, percent - 5.2%

  26. I grew up about a block away from the Epplen family. Saw them in mass at Blessed Sacrament Church most every Sunday of my childhood. Mike...well...the entire family, they are all absolute salt of the earth. And I think you'd be hard pressed to find many households in Kenton, Campbell or Boone County that haven't ever had had a family member play in a baseball game that had an Epplen either on one of the teams, coaching one of the teams, or officiating the game. Mike Epplen was such a good good good guy. The world was a better place with him in it.

  28. Franklin County is going to quite literally snuff out the other schools, particularly Frankfort, if the city school system does not invest in the Frankfort program. If you live in Frankfort and your kid is playing football, why would you not want to send them to Franklin County?

  30. I would say in most cases it would be best to move on, do the work where you get the offer to at least be on a roster and hope that leads to something more. PWOs, D2, D3, NAIA and JUCO kids transfer into D1 programs all the time. If you are meant to be there you will get there.

  35. Was a sloppy game by both teams with a couple unearned runs by both teams which were from pretty easy routine plays. Nerves were definitely present from the beginning it looked like. In saying that I think Danville had 5-6 doubles and a long fly out that may have been out at most HS fields while Beechwood probably had 3-4 balls that would of been. Do believe that was 2 of the best remaining 16 teams after seeing other games yesterday. Think they are both in the top half easily of that 16.

  37. Beechwood much more fundamentally stronger team tonight. CCH had a bad error and several passed balls which led to several of the runs. First time watching Beechwood this year and their coach seems like a fun guy to play for, seems like a players coach.

  39. Pay is based on level of education (Rank I, II, etc) of the individual & years of service, not whether person is a middle school or high school teacher. Someone mentioned the transfer of unused sick days, they transfer with a teacher if staying in state of KY. I’m not sure if public vs private matters but Newport & FTIS are public.

  43. Honestly, this situation is a good argument for those who think transfers should be allowed. I am not saying I am 100% in favor of free transferring in high school. Actually I am not in favor of it, but here is a good argument I see for those who are in favor. These players get to test themselves in a top notch program to find how good they are. When they find they aren't getting the playing time they want or aren't as good as they and their families/friends thought they were, they can move over to another program. High school is a very short 3 year varsity experience. It isn't good for

  45. This may seem off topic but I would recommend watching “The Social Dilemma” on Netflix. I recommend it because it shows how tech companies have effectively cornered people into their own online bubble and anything other than the person’s own views on any (every?) topic is unacceptable. I honestly think that type of thinking drives a wedge further into people (leading to these types of behaviors) all for the purpose of advertising profits. It doesn’t completely explain why this happens (it never even mentions this in the film), but those are immediate conclusions I drew from it.

  46. I think this shows that the whole toxic locker room report that came out last season. Was probably more coming from just players who had previously played under Lewis, and wasn’t a fan of change. The players who Taylor has brought in, all have always seem to be completely bought in. This is now completely Taylor’s team, with basically all players he has brought in. Now it is time for him to show if he can get it done or not in the win column. No more excuses, this is his team. Get it done!
