Mustang Legend Evan McDole, “The Boss”


Two sport Mustang superstar Evan McDole has the distinction of being the only player in Brossart history to have never competed in freshmen or junior varsity competition prior to playing on the varsity level.

Evan was a varsity starter in his first high school game on November 30th, 2001 at home vs Paris, a game that the Mustangs would win 83-63. He started in all 30 games played his freshmen season.

As a sophomore, Evan would run his streak of starts to 56 before coming off the bench on February 28th at Simon Kenton, where the Mustangs upset the top ranked Pioneers 59-56. Evan also came off the bench in the next game which was the first game of the 2003 38th District Tournament where the Mustangs eliminated Silver Grove 43-31. He rejoined the ranks of the starting five in the following game, a 59-51 win over Pendleton County in the District Championship Game and started both games in the 10th Region Tournament where the Mustangs finished their season in the Final Four. He would start all 29 games in his junior season and 23 of the 24 games his senior season, setting a new school record for most games started with 111, seven better than the old school record of 104, held by Curtis Bezold.

Evan joined the elite Mustang 1,000 Point Club on Friday night, December 17th, 2004 at George Rogers Clark High School.  He finished his career with 1273 points placing him fifth on the all-time scoring list trailing only Nathan Seiter, Dave Farwick, Brian Ficker, and Greg Schwegmann.  Evan averaged 11.3ppg for his career.  He led the team in scoring his junior and senior seasons, while being the second leading scorer his freshman and sophomore years.  He led the Mustangs in rebounding all four years – combining for 755 career rebounds.

It is no stretch of the imagination to proclaim Evan McDole one of the most prolific athletes ever to pull on a Brossart basketball jersey or baseball uniform. He has been a mainstay in this program since he played his first game as a freshmen and has left an indelible mark on both of these sports which will never be forgotten. In four years, he has risen to become the fifth leading scorer in the history of Brossart basketball dating back to 1954. His basketball teams have amassed 79 wins in his four year career which has included four consecutive wins over arch-rival Newport Central Catholic, three in a row over Campbell County and three out of four wins over Covington Catholic, twice while they were ranked Number One in Northern Kentucky. In his senior season he led the Mustangs to two victories in the Fifth-Third Bank Classic at Lexington Catholic, with one of those wins eliminating the host school from their own tournament. He finishes his career at Brossart High School as the leading scorer and rebounder on a team that won our school’s first NKAC Division II Conference Title, with an undefeated 6-0 mark. We completed a sweep of all Diocesan Parochial Schools for the first time ever and were ranked Number One in all of Northern Kentucky in the final Enquirer and Kentucky Post polls.

While we will create a special “Baseball Legends” page for Evan it is worthy to note that he has led the Mustangs in scoring in his last two baseball seasons, hitting .370 as a freshman, .467 as a sophomore, and .489 as a junior. As a sophomore he set the school doubles record with 16 and narrowly missed Justin Seiter’s 13 home run record last year, finishing the season with 12 dingers. He was named the “Northern Kentucky Baseball Player of the Year” last season and played on the Kentucky State Junior All-Star team. Evan went on to play his college baseball at Northern Kentucky University where he received the GLVC’s Paragon Award, was named the GLVC Player of the Year his Junior Season, and was awarded post-graduate scholarship money by the NCAA. On Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 Evan was inducted into the 10th Region Hall of Fame, joining Nathan and Justin Seiter as Brossart’s only three players to be so honored.

Evan McDole has truly earned the title of being “THE BOSS.”

In addition to being elected to the 10th Region Hall of Fame, Evan has also been admitted to the Bishop Brossart Sports Hall of Fame for his prowess on the baseball diamond as well as on the hardwood.
