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 →

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. In the tough, competitive districts, that puts extra weight on winning the regular season district games and avoiding a tough first round match up. In a couple districts, it makes things...

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/7)

By Ram - Class 1A The East never fails to disappoint when you are looking for Class 1A drama, and even on a week when the district battles had not heated up, it once again proved to provide plenty of story-lines. Paintsville rebounded from their tough loss to shock one of the top teams in Southwestern Virginia. The team who had defeated Paintsville was Hazard, the Bulldogs were just a few self inflicted wounds away from a shocking upset of Somerset but fell just shy. Raceland looked for their own statement but could not get anything working as the rival Tomcats ousted them. The statement game this... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (10/6): Purples halt Spartan streak

By DevilMayCare - Bowling Green delivers the opening salvo in a battle of 5A powers With their stranglehold on Bowling Green area supremacy beginning to slip over the past two seasons, and the external doubts surrounding the team this year, the Purples were in need of a spark to help ignite the 2019 campaign. What better opponent to provide the necessary flammable materials than South Warren, the very team vying with the Purples for the privilege of carrying the torch for WKY 5A football? The Spartans, owners of a state best 21 game winning streak, had been tested greatly the previous two weeks against... Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (10/6): The Tigers Break Through

By DragonFire - Since Hopkinsville began their turnaround in 2014, most seasonís have been filled with disappointment and/or unfulfilled promise. In 2014 it was having to forfeit three games, turning a winning season into a losing one. In 2015 and 2016, it was bowing out a round early at home, failing to close out a close game. In the last two seasons, it has been entering the season as the favorite in the district, only to fail to grab a top seed in-district and going on the road each season in the playoffs. A big reason for that is the rise of Logan County. In 2017, the Cougars announced their arrival... Read More →

3A Notebook: Mid-Terms

By gchs_uk9 - Passing Out Mid-Term Grades We've passed the mid-point of the 2019 season with all but four teams having already began district play. This week the 3A Notebook is ready to hand out mid-term reports to every team. Admittedly, the 3A Notebook isn't too hard of a grader and we will readily encourage every team with a low grade that improvements can be made. We do not, however, grade on a curve. You get what you earned. District 1 Paducah Tilghman (5-2) - B The Blue Tornado have started 5-2 behind an impressive running game that averages 291 yards per night on the ground. Passing game has...

Class 2A Notebook 10/5/- Hey, Hey, Hey! It's Q&A for Class 2A!

By ATLCat - 10 Questions, 10 Answers. What We Know and Don't Know About the Class' Top Teams Somerset Answer- We know that the Briarjumpers are a balanced and complete team so far. Somerset has maintained a great Offensive balance, but have also proven to be a consistently stout Defense and sound Special Teams unit. The Briarjumpers may not be the "best" at any grouping, but you can argue they are one of the Top 5 teams in essentially each discipline. Question- What will the aftermath of Friday's game against Hazard reveal? The Bulldogs gave the blueprint for beating the Jumpers and even more... Read More →
