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 →

Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-5

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 6-0)- The Golden Eagles did what they are accustomed to doing, put up a running clock in a District game. Expect more of the same against floundering Perry Central. 2. Somerset Briarjumpers (2A, 6-0)- The perfect season continues, but the Briarjumpers got a great scare put in them to begin the Halloween month. Hazard gave Somerset all they wanted but the Briarjumpers made the big plays. They now get Danville but will do so without Alex Miller. 3. Bell County Bobcats (3A, 6-0)- Bell chipped away at The Rock and posted a shutout of the Rockets. Bell... Read More →

1A Game of the Week 10/4 - It's Special

By Voice of Reason - I thought about including this in this week's 1A notebook, but this game deserves its own thread. If you read the 1A Notebook this week (if not, here's the link ), then you know there are a couple big games on tap tonight featuring highly ranked 1A teams. But neither one of those are my pick for this week's 1A Game of the Week (GOTW). I've got you wondering now, don't I? In fact, this week's GOTW doesn't even include a team ranked in the 1A top ten. Nevertheless, I think this game of the week is fantastic. Let me set the stage for you. One of the three remaining undefeated teams in 1A puts... Read More →

Central Kentucky/Lexington Power Rankings 10-3-19

By WestDanville - What an interesting week that was. We had a couple of statement wins and a showdown between Lexington’s best 2 quarterbacks. There were several eye popping stat lines around the area. Here is where we stand after week 6. The top 10: 1. Boyle County (4A, 6-0, RPI .731) In the preseason rankings it was said that Boyle’s run through the “gauntlet” portion of their schedule could propel them to number one depending on the outcomes. Beating CAL 71-28 and blanking Highlands 30-0 is enough so far to do just that. Even though Frederick Douglass beat Scott County, the eye test has me... Read More →

1A Notebook 10/3 - Getting Tighter

By Voice of Reason - The 1A rankings seem to tighten up every week. This past week was another edition. We had three big games that involved four of the top ten. The game of the week was Hazard versus Paintsville. If anyone was looking for more rankings jumbling, then it did not disappoint. The Hazard Bulldogs sprung a big surprise on the Tigers with a 23-14 win. That game was so Hazard. Just when people think they arenít quite with the top level teams, the Bulldogs leap up and bite you. That game shook up the rankings. There were two other big games in 1A. The Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds kicked... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Mr. Football Watchlist (10/2)

By DevilMayCare - Front Runners Beau Allen (QB, Lexington Catholic) Week 6: Featuring a fireworks display that the 4th of July would envy, LexCath rallied from a 7-36 hole to defeat Tates Creek, 54-50. Allen lived up to his billing, throwing for 464 yards and six touchdowns, but was statistically bested by the Commodores' Luke Duby, who threw for 535 yards and seven touchdowns. Three Allen scoring tosses in the second quarter pulled the Knights to within 28-36 at halftime, setting the stage for the ensuing comeback. Allen found a wide open JD Woodall for his sixth and final TD pass of the night in the... Read More →

6A Notebook (9/30): District Rundowns

By Tigerpride94 - 6A District Rundowns Having completed the first part of season which is the non-district portion for most teams. One exception is McCracken County who has already played two district games. Teams have tuned up for district play and now will play those familiar faces you see year after year with the exceptions being teams moved up and around for re-alignment. The district play is important because they have playoff implications for the first two rounds and each team will play a district rival for a second time, and will determine seeding for first round games, and determine who plays at...

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/30)

By Ram - Class 1A Just when you think the pecking order for the east was set, Hazard goes and knocks off Paintsville and proves they are a team definitely deserving of attention. The Bulldogs will try to further their validation against 2A's top team Somerset. Paintsville will look to avoid a losing streak against a very good Union (VA) program. Raceland looked good last week and will have their eyes on a highly tanked 3A prize. It will be an unusual week with 60% of the Top 10 on a BYE week. 1. Pikeville -- OPEN 2. Raceland at 3A #3 Ashland 3. Hazard vs. 2A #1 Somerset 4. Newport Central... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Western Kentucky Power Rankings - September 29, 2019

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2019 Western Kentucky Power Rankings Ė Week 6 Edition The top story line this week is we have passed the halfway point in the season now! Time truly does fly! With that said, how have your top teams done so far? For the majority, I think itís a mixed bag of uneven performances. A LOT of that can be attributed to new, younger guys asked to step up and be the man and maybe they are ready and maybe they arenít! But part of the things that make our sport great is that steel sharpens steel! I mean, if you expect to continue to compete successfully as a program over a long... Read More →

By gchs_uk9 - The 11 Types of People in High School Its homecoming week here at the 3A Notebook and we're going to take a few minutes to reminisce. No, there no won't be special outfits to wear each day. There isn't going to be a parade. There will be games, but your team is assured of winning because you scheduled a cupcake so we can't focus on that. No, for this year's homecoming we're going to think about the eleven types of people who went to high school. And we will put those descriptions on each of the ten members of last week's Class 3A Top Ten. Let's go! The Old Soul -... Read More →
