Bluegrasspreps Mr. Football Watchlist (10/16)

By DevilMayCare - Front Runners Beau Allen (QB, Lexington Catholic) Week 8: Beau knows how to do a lot of things on a football field, including how to spin a spheroid with the best of them. But the knowledge of how to beat Boyle County has eluded him the last three years. Allen's right arm was present and accounted for last Friday against the Rebels, but unfortunately for Lexington Catholic, he doesn't play defense. He threw for 308 yards with three total touchdowns, and the Knights put up a fight early, but were eventually overwhelmed by a force of nature disguised as Boyle County's offense. Season...

Class 4A Notebook (10/16): Hope Fading for the Field

By DragonFire - When Lexington Catholic played Covington Catholic to a 39-38 result on September 6th behind an incredible Beau Allen performance (455 passing yards, 5 touchdowns), it appeared that perhaps the two-horse race in 4A might be expanded into something more. Their result at Lexington Christian two weeks later (a 43-42 loss) took some of the shine off of that, but their matchup with Boyle County last Friday was still anticipated to show whether or not there was true hope of someone besides Johnson Central to challenge Boyle Countyís supremacy. With apologies to Franklin County, that hope is all... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/14)

By Ram - Class 1A Pikeville has single-handedly changed the reflection of the Class 1A Top 5 with previous wins over Paintsville and Raceland. The Panthers will look to shake it up one more time when they travel to Hazard to take on the second-ranked Bulldogs. Bethlehem has their own agenda for a ranking adjustment. Fresh off a big win over Louisville Holy Cross, they will square up Campbellsville with gigantic playoff ramifications looming. In southern Kentucky, Williamsburg will look to hold off surprising Pineville with the winner taking claim to the District 8 race. 1. Pikeville at #2 Hazard... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 10/13 - Three Big Games = Three Big Keys

By ATLCat - The Undercard: Caldwell County at Murray Key #1- Keep it Balanced, Keep it Moving Murray is a team with great Offensive weaponry, particularly in the passing game led by hunter Utley and his dynamic receivers Tommy Waldrop, Jaiden Jackson, and Jorden Duffy. There is no question the Tigers have the proficiency to win a game through the air, but on Friday it may be prudent to be mindful of their running game. Caldwell County has allowed almost equal yardage in both the run and passing games and in both of their losses the run game being established helped to open up the pass and keep... Read More →

3A Notebook: DeSales Avoids District Reformation in Win over Christian Academy

By gchs_uk9 - DeSales beats CAL in Yet Another Classic One of the best rivalries in recent years has pitted DeSales and Christian Academy of Louisville. Placed in the same district for the first time in 2005, their annual matchup (or matchups, as they've met nine times in the postseason) has typically yielded a battle that comes down to the wire. Friday night was no different as DeSales watched a fourth down catch by CAL be ruled out of bounds which allowed the Colts to win, 35-28 in double overtime. "This was definitely a classic game," DeSales coach Harold Davis told the Louisville Courier-Journal.... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (10/12): CovCath KO's GCL South Heavyweight

By DevilMayCare - Two way star Mayer shines in huge KY win against vaunted Greater Catholic League Through seven weeks of the season, Covington Catholic (8-0) has been looking up at Frederick Douglass in the BGP rankings. The only thing separating the two teams was a signature win for the Colonels to hang their hat on. As of Friday night, that is no longer the case. Douglass poured it on Scott County two weeks ago, cementing their place at the top of 5A. The La Salle Lancers - unbeaten coming in and ranked among the top 10 in Ohio regardless of class - presented the Colonels with an opportunity to... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-12

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 7-0)- The Golden Eagles have had it coasting in a lower gear and Perry Central was the latest running clock win. Harlan County may make the Eagles stretch their wins, but anything less than another win will be surprising. 2. Somerset Briarjumpers (2A, 7-0)- Danville competed but Somerset simply was in a different class. This week they get LCA in the biggest Class 2A game of the year in the regular season. This will be a humdinger! 3. Bell County Bobcats (3A, 7-0)- Bell just keeps chopping down inferior competition. Garrard County was beat before... Read More →

By WestDanville - I want to open this weeks power ranking with a special shoutout to the Pirates of Berea. They have started the season 6-0.

Class 1A Notebook (10/9) - District Previews

By Voice of Reason - For all intents and purposes, playoff time is here. Teams have played most of their out of district games. Some teams have played tough opponents to get ready for the tough games to come in the playoffs. Some teams have scheduled to boost confidence and get wins. Now it is time for district games and there is a new twist this year. The first two rounds of the playoffs are against your own district opponents.
