Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 9-29

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 5-0)- The Eagles continued to flex their muscles by laying to smack down on traditionally stout 6A Simon Kenton. They now begin District play with rejuvenated Clay County, but expect Johnson Central to do what #1 teams do. 2. Somerset Briarjumpers (2A, 5-0)- Another week and another clinic put on by Somerset. Not only did the Briarjumpers light the scoreboard up against Russell, they also continue to play sound Defensive football. They finalize their Class 1A stretch with Hazard next. 3. Bell County Bobcats (3A, 5-0)- The Bobcats keep rolling and... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 9/28 - Get Your Motors Running

By ATLCat - An Auto-psy Of the Class With a second child on the way my Saturday consisted of a trip to the auto dealership after extensive research to find the best vehicle for my growing family. As I searched numerous listings from numerous manufacturers, it occurred to me that there are some comparisons that can be made to some of the best teams in 2A as we stretch past the halfway point and into the heart of District play. Without further ado, here are some of those comps as we have a light-hearted look at the Class 2A Notebook on one of the slower weeks of games. Somerset- Ford F150 King Ranch... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (9/28): For the Cardinals, "The Farm" is a no fly zone

By DevilMayCare - Douglass hands Scott County its worst defeat in eight years and first shutout since 2001 Usually when birds fly south, they're searching for a more agreeable climate. You never hear of birds flying south, finding the environment a little too hot to handle, turning around and immediately returning north in search of comfort. But that's more or less what happened on Friday night in Lexington. Scott County loaded up the buses and travelled south to "The Farm" for one of 2019's most hyped up collisions against Frederick Douglass. The teams were ranked #1 (FD) and #3 (SC) in 5A coming in, but... Read More →

Central Kentucky Power Rankings - September 26, 2019

By WestDanville - Time flies when you’re having fun! We have reached the halfway mark of the regular season. We’ve learned some teams are who we thought they were (cue Dennis Green) and some teams we are still waiting to find out. Here’s to the second half and the start of district play! Teams 1-10 1. Frederick Douglass (5A, 5-0, RPI .629) Last week: The Freddy D defense pitched another shutout in the 17th consecutive win over a FCPS opponent handling Henry Clay 27-0.

1A Notebook 9/25 - Taking Down the Big Schools

By Voice of Reason - The ranked teams in 1A all took on schools from the bigger school classes and fared very well. Williamsburg was the only top 10 1A team to suffer a loss. Leading the winners was #1 ranked Pikeville who shocked 3A #2 Belfry with a 22-21 come from behind win. In this week's notebook we will review last week's games, take a look at the week ahead and we will put the spotlight on some top performing players and teams as we hit the halfway mark to the season. Last Week 1. Pikeville - The shocker of the week was the Pikeville Panthers traveling to one of the toughest home fields in Kentucky... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Mr. Football Watchlist (9/25)

By DevilMayCare - Front Runners Beau Allen (QB, Lexington Catholic) Week 5: Allen's night against LCA was productive to say the least, but the Knights were edged out by a point on the scoreboard. His 374 yards (232 passing, 142 rushing) of total offense and five touchdowns (two passing, three rushing) weren't enough to fend off a very good Eagles squad. This rough patch of the schedule has seen LexCath drop two out of three, losing to LCA and CovCath, and beating DeSales. They should get a chance to catch their breath with Tates Creek this Friday and then a bye week. Season to date: 109/150 for 1,570... Read More →


6A Notebook (9/24): The Halfway Point

By Tigerpride94 - 6A Halfway point We are now at the halfway point of the regular season as most teams have played 5 games with 5 more to go. We now have a good grasp of the 6A landscape. We have a clear cut #1 and #2 teams in Trinity and Male. After Male’s 20-17 double OT win, Male has overtaken the #1 spot but also leaves the possibility of a re-match where Trinity could possibly win. #3 St. Xavier has defended their #3 ranking after beating 5A power #6 Bowling Green on the road. #4 North Hardin has good wins over #9 Ballard and 3A #6 Elizabethtown and is still undefeated. #5 Manual has gone 3-1 against a...

Class 4A Notebook (9/23): Boyle's Big Test Is No Test At All

By DragonFire - The Boyle County / Christian Academy of Louisville game was one of the most hyped games in the state last week. The matchup pitted the #1 team in 4A against the #1 team in 3A, and for Boyle County, was supposed to represent their first real test of the season. So much for that. The Rebels unloaded for 71 points and 621 yards in the 71-28 beating. QB Reed Lanter was almost perfect, throwing for 245 yards on 11/13 passing, with five of his 11 completions going for scores. Andrew Sacco averaged just shy of 10 yards per carry in posting 13 rushes for 129 yards and 3 scores. Will... Read More →


BluegrassPreps.com Football Rankings (9/23)

By theguru - Class 1A If there were any doubts that Pikeville was the the team most deserving to be at the top of the Class 1A Rankings, the Panthers' come from behind victory at Belfry has to weigh heavily toward erasing any doubt. Williamsburg lost their unblemished record hosting 2A Somerset, they will need everything in their arsenal to avoid a two-game losing streak as another loaded 2A team is up next in LCA. Hazard edged Danville by a point, and now will take aim at a Paintsville team looking to make their own statement. In Newport, it is a good ole fashioned rivalry with the rare occasion both...

3A Notebook: Time for DeSales to Take a Turn

By gchs_uk9 - CAL Loss, DeSales Victory Likely Means New Number One One week after five of the top six ranked teams in Class 3A lost, it was slightly calmer at the top. However, it was who did lose that will reverberate through Class 3A this week. Christian Academy of Louisville, having lost an overtime heart breaker to Ballard last week, was routed on the road at Boyle County, falling to the top-ranked Class 4A Rebels, 71-28. Meanwhile, district rival DeSales was using their defense to score, coasting past Cooper, 40-7. Expect a change at the top of the rankings for the first time this year. And even... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (9/21): Parity Abounds

By DevilMayCare - Lack Of Favorite(s) Makes For A More Thought Provoking Season At the halfway point of the regular season, no class in the state feels as wide open as 5A. Every other class could be narrowed down to a couple of legit contenders or a clear favorite - Pikeville in 1A, Somerset/Mayfield in 2A, DeSales/Belfry/CAL in 3A, Boyle County/Johnson Central in 4A, and Male/Trinity in 6A. For comparison, Frederick Douglass, Covington Catholic, Scott County, Highlands, South Warren, and Bowling Green all feel like teams that could realistically make a run in November. And that's excluding Pulaski, South... Read More →
