When it comes to high school football in the state of Kentucky, Trinity High School is at the top of the list. Over the last 45 years, Trinity has won 21 state football championships (more than any other program). The Rocks (short for “Shamrocks”) moved up to Kentucky’s 6A conference in 2007 and continue to dominate, winning five of the last six state championships at that level (Runner-up in 2009). In 2011, the Rocks were named National Champion by both Sports Illustrated and Rivals. Being the best at what you do is something the Trinity football program and CoachComm have in common.

The success of Trinity High School football has led them to some big games in big stadiums. That’s why this past season Head Coach Bob Beatty and his Trinity program invested in CoachComm’s Tempest FX headset system. Tempest FX supports his team’s efforts in these sizeable and challenging stadiums. The first Friday in October is Trinity’s annual rivalry game with St. Xavier High School, which is typically played at the University of Louisville’s Papa John’s Stadium. More than 30,000 people attend the game, making it one of the largest high school rivalries in the country. “The FX system performed perfectly. When we play at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium there is tremendous interference…FX worked perfectly,” says Beatty. In addition to Papa John’s Stadium, Trinity has visited Houchens-LT Smith Stadium in Bowling Green and most recently played a televised game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN. “FX worked flawlessly in the state championship game in Western Kentucky’s stadium as well,” adds Beatty.

“Compared to other systems, it is like a Mercedes. It’s flawless!”

The Tempest FX system offers schools at every level the best coverage and richest sound quality of any headset system. When asked about his recent addition of Tempest FX, Beatty concluded, “Compared to other systems, it is like a Mercedes. It’s flawless, easy to set up, and there are times I have to ask if the coaches are on the line because it is so quiet.”
