BluegrassPreps.com 8th Region Boys Basketball Preview

By ColonelMike - Region 8 2019-20 Boy’s Basketball Preview By Colonelmike In 2019, “the streak” came to an end in the 8th Region. Since re-districting occurred before the 2006 region tournament, the 8th Region title has been the exclusive property of the “South End” – namely, the two southernmost districts, district 29 and district 30. For thirteen consecutive seasons, five teams from those two districts monopolized the titles, with Oldham County claiming 4 region championships, followed by South Oldham (3), Shelby County (3), Collins (2), and Anderson County (1). The last time the 31st or the... Read More →


BluegrassPreps.com 1st Region Boys Basketball Preview

By silo11 - Defending Region 1 Champions: Mayfield Cardinals Region 1 last year had some very entertaining movement throughout the season. Lots of talent throughout the region made for some very exciting games. Mayfield was the preseason favorite but dropped games in the early going. McCracken showed they were a tremendous force and opened a lot of eyes on how quickly they can rebuild. Marshall County looked like it would have a great team, but Harmon was ruled ineligible and the season didn’t turn out like people had hoped. Graves County had one of their most talented teams and had a fantastic... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps Mr. Football Watchlist (11/13)

By DevilMayCare - Front Runners Beau Allen (QB, Lexington Catholic) Round 1: Allen guided the Knights past Bourbon County, 43-23, with 244 yards of total offense and five touchdowns - three passing, two rushing. Attention quickly shifts to Round 2 at Boyle County. For the future Kentucky Wildcat, all roads lead through Danville. His status as one of the state's best quarterback prospects in recent memory has long been secured, but the Rebels have proven themselves a persistent barrier between him and a deep playoff run. For all of his accolades, he has yet to advance beyond a region final. This Friday... Read More →


Class 1A Notebook - Playoff Round 1 Review

By Voice of Reason - District 1 (1) Crittenden County 46 - (4) Caverna 0 Predicted score: Crittenden County 56 Caverna 0 As expected, Crittenden County rolls over Caverna in round 1. One key item for discussion is the Rockets QB situation. Sophomore Luke Crider has taken over now as the starting QB. Crider entered the game against Fulton County on October 18 and led Crittenden County to three second half TD’s in a come from behind win. Crider was 10/17, 166 yards and 4 TD passes in the round 1 win over Caverna. (2) Russellville 32 – (3) Fulton County 27 Predicted score: Russellville 28 Fulton County 27 Read More →



BluegrassPreps.com 9th Region Boys Basketball Preview

By PP1 - Preamble: I remember eight months ago, when I was sitting in NKU’s gym waiting for the 9th region tournament, I thought to myself “Man, it’s going to be 9 months before I get to sit in a high school gym.” Well as the leaves are changing, the pumpkin spice latte is back at Starbucks, and the football playoffs begin it is clear to me that basketball season is on the horizon. The best three months of the year will soon be here and I look forward to covering the best region in the state. I anticipate meeting some of you fine people and debating teams, players, and officials. The pre-season... Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (11/11) - Round 1 Recap

By DragonFire - District 1 The most competitive 4A district unsurprisingly produced the most competitive games in 4A. The #8 Hopkinsville/Calloway County game was not expected to be one of those given the Tigers shut out the Lakers 43-0 in their regular season meeting. I was confident enough that I essentially called it a bye. But hats off to Calloway County, as they battled throughout. Calloway County held leads of 7-0 in the second and 17-14 in the third, but they fell just short in a 28-20 result. Bland threw for 226 and ran for 113 for Hopkinsville. Meanwhile, #10 Logan County hosted #7... Read More →


BluegrassPreps.com 4th Region Boys Basketball Preview

By DragonFire - Another season, another state semifinal run from a team in the 4th Region. For the second straight year, Warren Central made the run to the final four of the Sweet 16, making it five of the last six seasons the region’s representative made it that far. Six teams reached the 20 win plateau a season ago, though half the region also finished with losing records. Several teams return 4 or more starters, which sets the table for a highly competitive season. Of course, it wouldn’t be the 4th Region without the 14th District serving as favorites, as their state-longest streak is now at 18... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook: Reflecting back, looking ahead

By DevilMayCare - District 1 Round 1 Recap - No surprises were expected in the far reaches of Kentucky's westernmost 5A district. Owensboro got the ball rolling with a 40-0 rout of Muhlenberg County, and Graves County followed suit with a 28-0 shutout of Grayson County. Gavin Wimsatt threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns for the Red Devils, who secured their sixth ten (10) win season in the last seven years. Graves County got big nights from QB John Brown (231 yards passing/3 TDs) and Clint McKee (227 yards from scrimmage/3 TDs) to carry the Eagles through to the second round. District 1... Read More →


3A Notebook: CAL begins Revenge Tour with Win over Mercer

By gchs_uk9 - Defending Champion Centurions Win First of What Could be Four Straight Road Playoff Games Six weeks ago, Christian Academy of Louisville lost two Mercer County, 45-42. The score was closer than the game actually played out and it marked a third consecutive loss for the Centurions who were ranked first in the Bluegrasspreps.com Class 3A preseason rankings. A double overtime loss to DeSales two weeks later assured CAL they'd have to begin postseason play on the road. Three straight wins to finish the season, along with the return of a healthy Brandt Babin, gave CAL a boost on their way to... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 11/10 - Round 1 Recap

By ATLCat - District 1: Mayfield 56 Fort Campbell 13 Reaction: It was business as usual for the Cardinals as they jumped out to an early lead and coasted to a running clock victory as expected. Mayfield should be well rested and ready for the District Championship. Murray 34 Caldwell County 17 Reaction: It was a masterful coaching performance from the Murray staff as they threw some key wrinkles and took advantage of the film from the previous meeting to completely change the outcome and the complexion. Rowdy Sokolowski did an exceptional job in place of Hunter Utley, with Tommy Waldrop... Read More →

BluegrassPreps.com 12th Region Boys Basketball Preview

By se7ens - #1 Lincoln County – Coach Jeff Jackson’s Patriots come into the 2019/2020 season as reigning regional champion and all expectations are that they will be right in the thick of things again looking for another trip to the Sweet Sixteen. Many players return from last year’s 23-13 team, including seniors Elijah Frye and Riley Bodner. However, the Patriots will rely on sophomore Jaxon Smith to improve on his incredible freshman season where he averaged 12.3 points per game and averaged over 40% from three point range. This Lincoln County group has a lot going for it through a combination of... Read More →


Central Kentucky/ Lexington Power Rankings (FINAL)

By WestDanville - The regular season has been completed and we start some playoff games as soon as tonight. I hope everyone has enjoyed reading about CKY as much as I have enjoyed putting this together for you all every week. This will be the final ranking with a playoff outlook for the top 15. The Top 10 1. Boyle County (4A, 10-0, RPI .730) The Rebels completed the undefeated regular season with a 42-7 win over Madison Southern. Boyle wasn’t as sharp as they have been in previous games but were still good enough to get a running clock late in the first half and get the starters out of the game... Read More →


NKY Power Rankings: 11-06-19 (Final)

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (10-0) – No action on the field this week. Off the field, however, Cov Cath’s 4-star tight end, Notre Dame commit Michael Mayer received his jersey officially welcoming him onto the roster for the 2020 Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.
