BOWLING GREEN, Ky. --- Somebody had emptied Trinity's water coolers by midway through the 4th quarter, but there's no way the Shamrocks were letting head coach Bob Beatty off that easy - not on a night as big as this.
Straight out of MacGyver, the Shamrock players secretly emptied all the individual water bottles on their sideline into the big Gatorade jug. There was just enough to send shivers down Beatty's spine and pure jubilation throughout generations of Trinity fans - because this Kentucky record breaking 21st state title is the biggest of them all.
With it, a national championship will soon arrive in the St. Matthew's neighborhood in Louisville.
62-21 was the final, against a formerly unbeaten Scott County team that allowed only 9.1 points per game.
9 touchdowns, 600 yards of offense, 13 yards PER PLAY!
And somehow the Scott County had actually led 7-0 in this game, after just three plays from scrimmage.
Maybe that was their first mistake.
The only downer in green on this night was the students, who were barred from celebrating on the field with their team by Bowling Green's finest.
This reporter has said enough. Who better to hear the rest of the story from than maybe the greatest high school football team in Kentucky history.
Head Coach Bob Beatty
Quarterback and game MVP Travis Wright (15/19, 298 yds, 4 td, 1 int)
