NKY Power Rankings: 10-18-19

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (8-0) – The Colonels accomplished quite a few tasks on Friday with their 27-7 victory over OH-DII LaSalle (6-1). First, they managed to maintain a now 28-game regular season win streak by beating a team ranked nationally in the top 100 teams by most national polls. Second, they ticked off their 4th ever win against a GCL South team in one of their most marquee regular season wins in program history. And third, they successfully completed a third-straight regular season of being undefeated at home. QB Caleb Jacob was 12-24 passing for 199yds in the game against a... Read More →


Louisville Power Rankings - October 18, 2019

By SportsLife - 1. Male (7-0): Top-ranked Male continued to roll in its latest outing, blanking host Southern 53-0. Nearly perfect through the air, quarterback Elijah Parish completed 10 of 11 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns for the Bulldogs. Izayah Cummings was held out of the endzone but led Male in receiving, grabbing four catches for 83 yards. Male is set to visit Fern Creek on Friday night. 2. Trinity (6-2): Bouncing back from a loss one week earlier, Trinity bashed visiting Ballard 45-7 on Friday, Oct. 11. Running back Kyle Feger led Trinity to the victory, rushing 26 times for 238...

Central Kentucky/Lexington Power Rankings 10/18/19

By WestDanville - After 8 weeks Central Kentucky has 2 teams that are far above the rest in Boyle County and Frederick Douglass. Both teams feature stout Defenses and Offenses that can light up the scoreboard. So far both schools are among the favorites to win their respective classes. I wish somehow these 2 schools could play each other this season because it would be one heck of a game! The top ten 1. Boyle County (4A, 7-0, RPI .748) Last week: The Rebels finished their run through the gauntlet with an exclamation point 64-28 win over Lexington Catholic. The 3 games that were supposed to give...

As each week’s results come in, we will see how the first two rounds of the playoffs line up. With that being the focus, this week’s 1A notebook will follow up on our district summaries from last week and check out how the results from last Friday impacted the district playoff outlook. Weekly Review Here is a quick look at how last week’s top ten fared: 1. Pikeville (7-0) WON vs. Phelps 50-0 2. Hazard (4-2) --- OPEN 3. Paintsville (5-2) WON... Read More →



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 →


6A Notebook (10/16): Week 8 Rundown

By Tigerpride94 - The district standings are starting to shape up and after this week should really show how the the first round of the playoffs may be seeded. There are two games of the week among the top 10 ranked teams. The QB rating stat has been added since this can’t be found anywhere else. The current RPI is also included. Let’s check out the district standings. District 1: #10 McCracken County leads the district standings with a 3-0 record and is coming off a bye week. McCracken County this week will play Dyer County (TN) at home. Henderson County is 2-0 after defeating Apollo 20-13. Henderson... 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 →


Louisville Power Rankings - October 11, 2019

By SportsLife - 1. Male (6-0): Undefeated top-ranked Male notched its first shutout win in the 2019 high school football season during Week 7, blanking Pleasure Ridge Park 47-0. Quarterback Elijah Parish led Male to the victory, completing 11 of 23 passes for 135 yards and three touchdowns. Parish completed two scoring passes to Vinny Anthony. Male rushed 34 times for 277 yards an four touchdowns. Quantrell Wright and Jaylin Bross each rushed for over 125 yards for the Bulldogs. Wright led Male on the ground, rushing 16 times for 132 yards and three touchdowns. The Bulldogs are scheduled to visit... Read More →


Central Kentucky/Lexington Power Rankings October 10, 2019

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. To put that in perspective that is more wins than the Pirates have had from 2014 to 2018 COMBINED! Leading the way for the offense has been QB Jaylen Whitaker (546 passing yards and 584 rushing yards with 11 total touchdowns) and RBís Jaiden Cunningham (534 yards 8TD) and Timmy Thompson (330 yards 8 TD). Defensively they are led in tackles by Tanner Hayden who has 49 tackles and a sack. The trio just mentioned carries their weight on the defensive side as well combining... Read More →
