This is part of the Cincinnati Enquirer's series, Greatest of All Time, highlighting the top boys and soccer state championship teams of all time.
Thanks for posting that. Little before my time but what was going on at Bacon in 1980, great player or just a bunch of beasts?
The lists are never going to please everyone. They are fun to think about, no way to really know. The article says they got input from coaches (past and present) and fans. I was never asked so not sure how that worked.I guess that these list are fun but they're too subjective.
Since it's behind a paywall I can't read the article but it doesn't seem to be very credible if the 2007 & 2008 SUA teams are not even a consideration. Those teams could probably have their way with any of the above mentioned teams. Even the West side that won this year, though I doubt that they're a top 5 team of all time, would win some games against those teams.
The lists are worthless. Some things never change and the Enquirer seems as if it is still a rag.
I thought it said coaches and others guess I read it wrong. I actually did coach some of those girls and against others but it was for basketball not soccer and before high school some good athletes.Irwin20 ... you would have to have been a coach!
I like that they did at least pick one team from the 20th century. I'm guessing 1980 was a typo and should be 1989 or 1990. I'm guessing that would have been Arszman/Gillespie days looking at their website. I'd like to see a team from the 70s listed.
