NKY Soccer Preview

By hoops5 - The Bluegrass Games are behind us. Soccerama is around the corner. Is Northern Kentucky ready for some soccer? One theme seems to echo across the region---lots of teams lost many good seniors. However, that does not necessarily mean that their team is down. Strong programs fill it right back up. So which teams took a big hit? Which teams will make a run? Which teams are dark horses? Yellow Card and I thought we would get the conversation started with our preseason rankings. We would love to hear your thoughts as well. Here we go! 1. Covington Catholic- Because this is where CCH is... Read More →


Louisville and Surrounding Area Top 10 Power Rankings 7-29-15

By Bert - 1) Trinity High School - I argued with myself about number one and number two for days. I finally settled on Trinity because well, they're Trinity and over the past decade and a half have shown the ability to come back on top numerous times so until proven wrong, they will enter the preseason in this poll as the top ranked team. 2) Male High School - Number one and two could easily be flip flopped due to the immense talent Male has. Recent UofL signee Wakefield is incredible and could be a deciding factor in close games for the Bulldogs. Male was ranked #2 because in the past several... Read More →


2015 Highlands Girls Soccer preview

By PsalmsG - It may not be fair to compare. But when it comes to the Highlands Ladybirds soccer program, many think of the likes of past great players like Sydney Hiance, Caitlin Beck, Leslie Twehues, Alicia Browning-Gesenhues, Kara Dickerson-O'Hearn, Megan Leahy, Amber Barth-Wells and Mallory Adler. Those greats among others helped the program on its impressive run of 80-11-11 between the 2005 and 2008 seasons. Highlands captured back-to-back state championships in 2005 and 2006 and a state runner-up crown in 2008 during that time. While the current players can't be them, they've been trying to...

By Bluegrasscard - Lexington / Central Kentucky Top 10 Power Rankings - Preseason Traditionally when one thinks of Central Kentucky high school football the discussion was usually around the smaller schools of the area. 2A Danville and 3A Boyle County alone can dominate the conversation.

Boyle County was 11 and 2 in Chuck Smiths first year of his return as the head coach of Boyle County. Smith will have a lots of seniors on this year’s team lead by QB Josiah Robbins. Smith...

Pick the Mr. Football Watch List

By ATLCat - Much like College Football has a Watch List for the major individual awards, I say we put together the Un-Official Watch List for the State's Most Prestigious Award: We will pick 20 Players for This List: I will start by nominating 12 Players I feel are "Can't Miss" options for such a list. It is very important to consider what we feel is the criteria/variables that usually dictate who wins the award: - Typically the player is a Senior.. Juniors have been finalists, but as far as I know a Senior has won every Mr. Football. Only exemplary Juniors will be considered. - Mr. Football... Read More →


Middle School Football - Benefit or Hindrance?

By GCHS - I have seen several comments about MS FB, in general, but not a specific thread - so I thought starting a discussion might be good. FIRST OFF - THIS IS NOT INTENDED AS A DISCUSSION FOR KYMSFA PLAYOFFS, but rather a general discussion about whether the development of middle school teams have been a positive or negative. My personal opinion is that, in rural areas at least, middle schools have been a negative. For instance - a rural town that had a good youth league probably had at least 4 teams of 7-8 graders, you figure 15-20 kids on each team, each getting a little bit of playing... Read More →

Coach Bill Arnsparger, a Paris, Ky native was a Marine during WW II. His HS football coach was Blanton Collier. Coach Arnsparger coached the greatest defense in the history of the NFL, the No-Name Dolphins of the only undefeated Super Bowl Champions from Miami in 1972.
