Kentucky High School Football Huddle
One of my favorite parts of covering high school football for 35-years are the coaches I gotten to meet. High school football coaches are a different breed...especially the good ones.
For the most part, they're in it for the kids, not the accolades that come with the position.
That's why I enjoyed the Courier-Journal's story on Trinity head coach Bob Beatty, who heads into the season looking to tie Kentucky's state record for consecutive championships. The Shamrocks have won four straight 6A titles and Beatty owns seven total in his nine seasons at the helm...not to mention an .885 winning percentage with a 116-15 record.
My favorite part of the article, the fact that Beatty knew at the age of 12 he wanted to be a head coach.
This year, Beatty is putting the championship streak into the hands of junior quarterback Brad Kragthorpe, son of University of Louisville head coach Steve Kragthorpe. According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, 6-1, 180-pounder should be another good one in the long-line of top Rock QBs.
Trinity opens the season August 28th at home against Lawrence North from Indiana.
