While St. X and Trinity lay claim to the sports studs in the Ville, it was Flaget that many remember as the cool Catholic boys' school in town.

Flaget High won its first championship, the Louisville city golf championship, in 1945. Then followed that up with a state basketball title in 1960 and track in 1961. But it was its football program that most remember.

State champs in 49, 52, 58, 61, 67, and 71.
Paul Hornung? Flaget.
Howard Schnellenberger? Flaget.
And others?

Baseball's Gus Bell got his schoolin' @ Flaget.

So did Darryl Drake, who played WR @ WKU from '75-'78, then in the NFL for the Redskins and Bengals and NFL WR coach for the Cardinals and Bears.

And, let's not forget Flaget hoops star, Jerry Harper. Jer' went on to 'Bama where he was voted second-team All-American as a freshman, averaging 17.9 pts and 17.0 rebs per game -- stats that continued to grow from there. He was the first Crimson Tide guy to lead 'Bama in scoring for all four years. In one particular game against UK, he knocked down 38 and grabbed 26 -- a game the Tide won 101-77, the first time Kentucky ever allowed 100+ points.
