The Kentucky High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame Class of 2017 was announced Sunday afternoon.

Flaget alum and current Trinity quarterback coach Oscar Brohm was among the 11 nominees. Here’s what the KHSAA had to say about Brohm.

Oscar Brohm (Flaget HS) – A three-sport standout at Flaget High School (1962-65), Brohm starred in football, basketball and baseball for the Braves. As a senior in 1965, Brohm was named First Team All-State by the Courier-Journal and the Associated Press, while also earning a spot on the All-Southern All-America Team, after leading Flaget to a 10-1 record and the Louisville City Championship. He threw for 1,848 yards in an era when passing was not as prevalent as it is today, and set a Louisville city school record with 23 touchdown passes – a mark which stood until broken by Chris Redman in the 1990’s. He led Flaget to a state runner-up finish as a senior, as the Braves fell to Seneca, 13-12, at Cardinal Stadium. He was given the prestigious OUR BOY Award from the Louisville Coaches Association following a senior year which saw him throw for three touchdown passes and rush for another in a 31-14 victory over Male, which snapped the Bulldogs’ 25-game winning streak. Brohm went on to play at the University of Louisville before embarking on a storied coaching career, including the last 17 years as the quarterbacks coach at Trinity High School, where he has contributed to 10 state championships.
