1A Notebook 9/18 - Shuffle the Deck

By Voice of Reason - The top 10 deck of teams did not change this week despite three losses by top 10 teams. However, those three losses shuffled the deck as 7 of the top 10 are sitting in a different position than they were last week. This week two of our top 5 face huge challenges that could knock them from the ranks of the undefeated. There are six undefeated teams left in 1A. We'll take a look at each of them and their prospects of staying undefeated after this week. That is a lot of ground to cover so we better get to it. Last Week Review 1. Pikeville - For the second week in a row the Panthers took on... Read More →


Central Kentucky Power Rankings 9/18/19

By WestDanville - The full moon, Friday the 13th didnít have much affect on the teams that were ranked 1-7 as they all came out as victors. Teams ranked 8-20 on the other hand did not fare so well going 3-10 collectively. The top 10 1. Frederick Douglass (5A, 4-0, RPI .671) Last week: The Freddy D dominance over the Fayette County Public Schools continued with a 49-0 win over Dunbar. The defense continues to impress giving up just 67 yards to the Bulldogs. QB Josh McClurg has another solid night passing for 3 TDs and rushing for another. Dane Key and Darius Neal added 2 scores each. This Week:... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Mr. Football Watchlist (9/18)

By DevilMayCare - Front Runners Beau Allen (QB, Lexington Catholic) Week 4: In a performance just as brilliant as the show he put on against Covington Catholic, Allen led the Knights to a three touchdown lead over DeSales in the first half before orchestrating a game winning drive in the fourth quarter after the Colts stormed back. He threw for 365 yards and three touchdowns in Lexington Catholic's 34-31 victory. Allen also led LexCath in rushing with 61 yards and another touchdown. Season to date: 85/122 for 1,338 yards and 14 TDs/0 ints. - 108 yards rushing/3 TDs Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (9/17): The RPI Has Landed

By DragonFire - This week, the first rough cut, experimental, etc. version of the RPI was released on the Riherds scoreboard, giving our first view of what this potential playoff game-changer has in store for us. We’re not quite at the season’s midpoint, but this gives a fun, pre-district look at what we might expect down the road. Potential Region Finals: - Franklin-Simpson at Madisonville-North Hopkins -Moore at Franklin County There are many tiebreakers if two teams have the same RPI, but we’re going to use the BGP rank as a tiebreaker here between Madisonville and Franklin County. So far,... Read More →



Class 6A Notebook 9/17: The Stage Is Set

By Tigerpride94 - 6A Notebook: The Stage is Set After Trinity defeated Waubonsie (IL) 60-6 the stage is now set for the game of the week and most likely regular season game of the year when the Shamrocks travel to Male to settle who is bona fide #1 in 6A. Both Trinity and Male are winning by an average margin of 31 points a game. The game within the game will be Male’s high powered offense with two future college D1 receivers Izayah Cummings (14 receptions, 231 yards, 5 touchdowns) and TE Briceson Rodgers (14 receptions, 246 yards, 2 touchdowns). Male’s rushing attack is also formidable with RB Jaylin Bross... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/16)

By Ram - Class 1A Pikeville certainly has a flare for the dramatic. Ffor the second time in two weeks, the Panthers had to hold on for dear life in a close game against a fellow 1A Top 10 foe. The Panthers will turn their attention to powerhouse rival Belfry this week. Williamsburg is searching for their own statement win against the newly minted top ranked team in Class 2A, Somerset. Hazard has their eyes on a Commonwealth blue blood in Danville, although the Admirals aren't quiet the heavyweight everyone is accustomed to. 1. Pikeville at 3A #3 Belfry 2. Paintsville -- OPEN 3. Williamsburg... Read More →

3A Notebook: What If They All Lose?

By gchs_uk9 - Rough Night for the Top Flight in Class 3A After last week's Bluegrasspreps.com Class 3A Top Ten was released, the question was posed by a commenter wondering what would happen if every team in the rankings were to lose. On Friday night that question nearly became a reality as five of the top six teams lost and the only non-loser was also a non-winner, with Bell County on their open week. Before we criticize too sharply, however, every loss was a "good" loss, meaning that each team played competitively against a top tier opponent. Top-ranked Christian Academy of Louisville (3-1) fell in... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (9/15): Freddy D(efense)

By DevilMayCare - In this age of offense, it's easy to overlook what's happening on the other side of the ball sometimes. Take Frederick Douglass for example: When you think of the Broncos, you tend to think of a high flying offensive machine that averaged 40 ppg last year with Cam Jones, DaMarco Fishback, a talented group of receivers, and one of the state's best offensive lines. Or this year's unit that's averaging 48 a game behind Josh McClurg, another talented receiving corp, and an offensive line boasting two of the best in the country at their positions. And they're roasting their opposition despite not... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 9/14 - The Air is Unkind for the Cardinals

By ATLCat - McCracken County Stuns Mayfield I don't think anyone who truly knows High School Football would say that 6A McCracken County had no shot against Top-Ranked Mayfield. The Mustangs are always a respectable team filled with athleticism and play making ability, but the Cardinals have had the larger school's number and was favored for good reason. What was truly shocking was the manner in which McCracken won the game, on Mayfield's home field where they enjoyed a 31-game winning streak, in an Offensive explosion that the Cardinals simply could not even slow down. Mustang QB Elijah Wheat may... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 9-14

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 3-0)- Johnson Central lit the scoreboard up and lit up South Charleston in all-discipline en route to a blowout win. The Eagles are scheduled to play another out of state foe in Bishop Sycamore, Ohio. Hopefully that game will go as scheduled. 2. Belfry Pirates (3A, 2-1)- Playing a GCL foe to a 7-0 game until the end of the 4th Quarter is certainly a moral victory at the very least. Belfry needs to get their Offensive confidence back and a huge rivalry game will not be an easy proving ground to do that. 3. Somerset Briarjumpers (2A, 3-0)- Somerset... Read More →


NKY Power Rankings: 09-13-19

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (3-0) Ė The Colonels havenít often found themselves behind in a game in recent years, but 3A Lexington Catholic (2-1) definitely had them against the ropes, leading for the vast majority of the game. After scoring the gameís first touchdown about halfway through the 1st quarter on Friday, Cov Cath trailed for most of the game by as many as 14 points, but came back to take over the lead on a 2-point conversion call with 2:52 left on the clock and held on for the 39-38 win. Caleb Jacob was 17-26 passing for 247yds and 1TD, and ran 8 times for 20yds and 2 TDs. Daniel... Read More →

Dominant Trinity compiled 491 yards of total offense in the shutout win. Stingy on the defensive side, Trinity limited its opponent from Ohio to only 88 total yards of offense.

Central Kentucky Power Rankings- September 12, 2019

By WestDanville - We are officially over 1/4 the of the way through the regular season. Central Kentucky had its first losses from teams in the top 5. Lexington Catholic coming up just short against Covington Catholic and Anderson falling to Mercer. The other 3 teams flexed their muscle and showed that they deserve to stay where they are. The Top 10 1. Frederick Douglass (5A, 3-0) Last Week: Douglass remains undefeated against FCPS opponents in their 40-0 win over Lafayette. The D dominated allowing just 9 yards of offense and spent a lot of time in the Lafayette backfield coming up with 11 tackles... Read More →


1A Notebook (9/11) - Indian Summer

By Voice of Reason - We have all heard that term - Indian Summer. This week sure feels like Indian Summer as the heat cranks its way back up into the 90's. It is heating up on the football fields in 1A also, and I am not talking about the temperature. Teams now have 2 or 3 games under their belts and things are getting interesting. We started this season with the thought that 1A was Pikeville's class to run away with. That thought got a heat check this past week as the Paintsville Tigers put a serious scare into the Panthers, with Pikeville eeking out a 9-8 win. That wasn't the only game where the heat got...
