Most people around the state who follow the high school scene know about Trinity High School in Louisville, and their football dominance. They have won 8 out of the last 11 state titles in the state’s top class, and are tied with Highlands for the most state titles in state history. But this year, that team may be entering new ground and could be in line to win a mythical national championship. The Shamrocks traveled to Cincinnati last Friday to play that city’s top team, St. Xavier, which is ranked in all national polls, as is Trinity. They came away with a 17-7 win. Trinity now owns wins over 2 of the best teams of Tennessee and 2 of the best teams in Ohio. They still have games against one of the best teams in Indianapolis and Cincinnati Moeller, which is ranked in the Top 20 nationally. Point being, if Trinity is able to run undefeated through their schedule, many believe they would be crowned national champs.
So, why should you care? Well, you should care because their junior class may be the most loaded in state history. Inlcuded in that class are:
Jason Hatcher: 6’3” DE and LB
James Quick: 6’1” WR (with 4.4 speed)
Travis Wright: 6’0” QB
Daylen Dawkins: 5’9” ATH
Joey Bloomfield: 6’3”, 303 lb OL
Ryan White: 5’10” 178 lb DB
According to Rivals.com, UK has already offered Hatcher and Quick, and is recruiting the rest of that class except for Wright. Joker Phillips is known as a top-notch recruiter, and has ruled Louisville for quite some time, but never had the city seen a haul at one school like this one. It will be interesting to see if these guys try and become some type of package deal, and if so, can Kentucky cash in on that.
