John Hart’s 2007 squad featured several outstanding players, five of whom would be named all-state (Craig Austin, Zach Campbell, Chris Deig, Tyler Mattingly, Paul McIntoch). McIntosh, was also selected as the Evansville Courier & Press All-Metro Player of the Year, the Indianapolis Star’s Mr. Football and the Gatorade Football Indiana Player of the Year.
