1A Notebook 9/27 - Who had the best Pre-District?

By Voice of Reason - The district battles are getting started. A few teams still are playing pre-district games but this will be the last week of out of district games for most teams. This seems like a good time to look at the pre-district successes, and losses, of our ranked teams. There is always a discussion about the out of district schedules teams have. Some teams will play a very difficult out of district schedule to prepare their team and to find their team's strengths and weaknesses against really tough competition. Some teams shape the out of district schedule with a mix of tough and less challenging... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (9/28/2016)

By JDEaston - While there were no top ten matchups in class 5A’s week 5, along with no movement in this week’s top ten, there were some games and scores to take note of. Let’s take a look at the Pulaski County vs. Madison Southern game first. Pulaski County has been working their way back up in the rankings after their early season blowout loss to 6A Scott County. Madison Southern on the other hand has been hanging around just outside of the BGP Top Ten for several weeks now, looking for a way in. The 205 yards passing from Matt Hendricks, along with a balanced rushing attack was enough for the Maroons to... Read More →

Trinity (6-0) – Trinity’s 70-0 win over Jeffersontown was a game that you hate to see. The game did give Trinity the ability not to worry about overlooking the opponent before taking on their archrival St. Xavier. Trinity will be the favorite in this game but rivalries are crazy so don’t take a Shamrock victory for granted in this weeks Featured Game. 2. Male (5-1) – Male over powers legitimate opponent Butler 41-12. Next week Male... Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (9/27): Big Game Meets the Hype

By DragonFire - How great was that South Warren at Franklin-Simpson game? These days, it feels increasingly rare for a game to live up to the hype, but this one met it and then some. All the elements were there, as detailed last week. You had rivals situated about 20 minutes from each other. You had the defending state champion in South Warren, albeit without many of their players from last year, and the historical power Franklin-Simpson, yearning to prove that they were finally ready to make good on years of talent that was simply “too young” to be ready. South Warren entered the game with a blemish... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 9/26- Breaking Down The Darkhorses

By ATLCat - First, Let's Start With The Lead Pony Though this week's notebook will be focused more on some of the teams outside of the Top 10, we would be doing a disservice if we did not address the biggest win of the Week. Mayfield looked like a juggernaut for a Half against #2 3A Corbin. The Cards jumped out to a big lead, even missing Mr. Everything Trajon Bright, before having to hold off fatigue and a late Redhound push in the Second Half. For the other 2A Contenders the Second Half has to serve as a ray of hope as Mayfield is uncharacteristically struggling to close out games. With that said,... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 9-26

By ATLCat - 1. Belfry Pirates (3A, 4-1)- Entering last week the gap between #1 and #2 was vast. Now that Belfry has been proven human that gap has closed dramatically. Pirates need a bounce back win against the team that handed them their only loss in 2015. 2. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 5-0)- The Golden Eagles are playing football at a VERY high level and as they navigate the "just want to escape without injury" portion of their schedule they sit in prime position to take over #1 if Belfry cannot find their footing back. 3. Wayne County Cardinals (4A, 5-1)- Wayne has been kicking butt and... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (9/26)

By Ram - Class 1A As we round the regular season's halfway point and begin to head toward home, the focus shifts from Non-District games to games that matter with implications toward the post season. Only two Top 10 teams in Class 1A challenged ranked foes in Week 5 with Beechwood taking down Covington Holy Cross in an intense battle, and Fairview taking it on the chin to 2A LCA. With the exception of Kentucky Country Day falling to 3A Adair County, the remainder of the Top 10 held relatively in tact. The District Schedule portion of the season gets off to a rapid start this week headlined by rival... Read More →

3A Notebook: Report of Central's Death an Exaggeration

By gchs_uk9 - Crown Not Yet too Heavy for Central William Shakespeare wrote in his play King Henry IV, "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown." For ten consecutive years Louisville Central has worn the district champion crown and after 27 seniors graduated from the 2015 team, along with a strong push from several teams within the district, there was talk that this year would be the year the title was relinquished. After starting 0-4 in 2016, that talk grew even louder. However, to modify an old Mark Twain quote, "the report of Central's death was an exaggeration." On Friday night, #6 Central... Read More →

1A Notebook 9/20 - Matchup Games

By Voice of Reason - Two of the top 5 in 1A took losses last week from teams in the very top tier in the state. Beechwood lost to Covington Catholic and dropped a couple places in the rankings as a result. Pikeville lost by an even wider margin to Belfry. Pikeville hung on to the #5 ranking despite the loss. It looks like the feeling in the ranking is the top 5 in 1A have separated themselves from the next 5. Looking ahead to this week's games there are several matchups that are interesting. Everyone has their thoughts on how these key games will go. Since we are about halfway through the season, I thought it... Read More →
