  1. Fair question. There has certainly been some water cooler talk. This year mostly. As you can imagine, it’s especially prevelant amongst parents of good basketball players from the traditional feeder schools. Starting 5 - as best I know: Disken - Blessed Sacrament Sommerkamp - St. Pius Green - St. Agnes Stocks - Cincinnati (IHM?) Starks - Cincinnati Starks is a Freshman, but I have no idea how old he is.
  2. I believe that the seeds have been planted for a great CCH/Highlands rivalry. I felt that way the minute Listerman was hired.
  3. Factual? Cov Cath really has the best athletes from both sides of the river? In hoops? Really? Are you serious? They’re what, 2-2 against Cincinnati competition? Factual? When was the “best athlete” basketball combine for KY-OH this year? That comment by Listerman was an exaggeration to make a point. They have athletes from both sides of the river. The best? Come on. You call em what you want.
  4. Listerman’s quotes are part truth, part hyperbole, part whining and a little axe grinding.
  5. Hopefully, you read the thread and understand the context of what I said to be "hilarious". Moving on.
  6. This story makes me so sad. I pray that this young man learns from this experience and somehow, some way, earns a second chance. Hard to understand the “why” on this one.
  7. They put a “Beat Highlands” clock in their locker room and broke out some white pants. Remember? It just took a few years beyond that, along with a new coach and a couple Mayer brothers and voila...
  8. Florida High is coached by Heisman trophy winner and 11(ish) year NBA vet, Charlie Ward. Pretty cool that a man of his stature is coaching high school.
  9. It really wasn’t that difficult to answer.
  10. A valid question. The common sense speculative answer is that these young men and their families chose Covington Catholic because it offered the best combination of academics and athletics for their individual situation. If you want to put academics completely aside, then I’d assume it was based on factors such as: playing time potential , level of competition and collegiate exposure. There’s also the possibility that some of these kids are at CCH because of positive word of mouth. CJ Fredrick probably would not have come to CCH, had his Uncle not been on the coaching staff. But, he came to CCH and thrived, parlaying his great high school career into a scholarship at Iowa. There is the possibility that families like the Fredrick’s share their positive experience with other families in their community. This likely also is a factor in some of these decisions. I also believe that generally speaking, Cov Cath is cheaper than the traditional GCL powers in Cincinnati.
  11. The black hat in Barry’s pic appears to be Doc Morris. Doc was also a baseball umpire and as many know, a large baseball tournament is played in his honor, annually.
  12. Stop reading your press clippings and get to work. Not impressed.
  13. Pleasantly surprised, a rare NKY based Mr. Football. Congrats Mick! How many NKY players have won? I know of Jacobs and Mayer. Lorenzen? Guidugli?
  14. Yes, sorry. Was counting from the first title in ‘68. So, from first title in ‘68, they’ve basically averaged a title every other year. If that’s correct, it’s completely ridiculous.
  15. That’s an incredible record. Trinity has a monopoly on Kentucky High School football. The dominance is cartoonish.
  16. Amazing. The HC before was Lampley, correct? How does Beatty compare on titles & wins? If he has 14 titles, I’m guessing he’s well ahead of Lampley.
  17. How long has he been HC at Trinity and how many titles does he have now? Where does he rank on all time coaching wins list vs previous Trinity coaches? Apologies if these questions were addressed earlier in this thread.
  18. I recall a Danville v Mayfield game - AA title in ‘87 @ the Louisville Fairgrounds. I believe a Freshman (David Walker?) blocked an extra point for Danville, to preserve a 14-13 win. Great game.
  19. From an old Little Texas song: “If I’ve learned anything, there’s a first time for everything.” Go Belfry!
