Bowling Green Purples 2014 Football Preview

By Purple Nation - We have all heard the statement, "Don't let the past dictate your future." Though we can allow the past to teach us, motivate us and challenge us - the past cannot be relied upon to guarantee where we land in the future. No prep team in the Commonwealth has had a brighter "past" in the last 36 months than the Bowling Green Purples; but what about their future? Most of us are aware of the winning streak of 44 wins. What you may not be aware of is the dedicated coaching staff, the committed Senior classes and the daily grind that the kids put in to see this dream of the 3Peat to become a... Read More →


Warren Central Dragons 2014 Football Preview

By DragonFire - After a strong run in the first four years under coach Mike Rogers, Warren Central took a step back in 2013. The Dragons limped out of the starting gate, losing their first three games for the first time since 1994. Ultimately the Dragons went 6-6 against a difficult schedule that included two state champions and a runner-up, failing to reach the region finals for the first time since 2009. What followed was an offseason that saw the departure of Mike Rogers to Paducah Tilghman – the third straight Central football coach to leave after exactly five seasons – as well as turnover of the...

By Commander 25 - The Bell County Bobcats finished the 2013 season at 7-5 losing in the second round of the playoffs to Louisville Central 14-11. The Yellow Jackets have ended the Bobcats’ season the last 3 years. The Bobcats had a disappointing season, if you go by their record, but they started the season with a very young squad that gained momentum by the end of the end. The Bobcats graduated 7 seniors last season. A majority of the Bobcat squad is returning this season including 9 starters on the offensive side of the ball. 3 year starting quarterback JR-Peyton Collett will lead the offense with 878...

Male Bulldogs 2014 Football Preview

By theguru - 2013 Review 2013 season was a remarkable run for the Louisville Male football team as they finished with a 12-2 record which set a high water mark for the most wins in over a decade. On the way to those 12 wins, Male captured the "Super District" and Regional Championship, but the signature moment of the season actually happened twice with Male beating private school 6A football powers Trinity and St. Xavier in back-to-back weeks not once but twice. A young Male football team (starting 7 sophomores) played one of the toughest schedules in the state, by playing 8 out of 14 games against the... Read More →

Belfry Pirates 2014 Football Preview

By ATLCat - Many who only follow Kentucky High School Football in passing may not even realize what the Belfry Pirates have the potential to do, or for that matter even know what they have done. Those critics would be quick to shoot down notions such “Dynasty”, “Dominance”, or “Elite” and rightfully so. Critics accurately would point to Louisville Central and their 4 wins against the Pirates . Yet, hidden in plain sight is a chance to join the ranks of Kentucky’s Bluest of Bloods in the most selective of company. Belfry enters the 2014 season as the defending 3A State Champions and as the consensus... Read More →

Frankfort Panthers 2014 Football Preview

By CoachBuckett - Frankfort High Panthers In 2013 the Frankfort Panthers made an appearance in the Class A semi-finals. It was the first time back since 2007 season that the Panthers played in Class A final Four. Over the last 11 years the Panthers have been knocking on the door of the Class A elite.

Simon Kenton Pioneers 2014 Football Preview

By uk#1fan - The Pioneers went 12-1 last year and graduated some very good players Kuntz, Wasson, Walling, Hansel, King, Wilson, Kelly and Krallman to name a few.
