The Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds were honored as the FOX19 / TristateFootball.com Northern Kentucky Team of the Year at the Year in Review Show on Wednesday at Friday's in Crestview Hills.
Head coach Eddie Eviston took over the program for the legendary Bob Schneider and led his alma mater to a Kentucky Class 2A state championship. He became the first first-year head coach to win a state title in Kentucky during his first season since 1993.
NewCath finished the season with a 13-2 record and won its fourth state championship in school history and the first since winning back-to-back crowns in 2005 and 2006.
The ‘Breds set team records for total points (633), rushing yards (4,312), total offensive yards (6,017) and rushing touchdowns (68).
