Class 4A Notebook (9/8): A Statement Loss

By DragonFire - Lexington Catholic has been viewed as a solid team, but a team that is outside the elite tier that features Boyle County and Johnson Central. Last week when I made their matchup against 5A #2 Covington Catholic our 4A Game of the Week, I said if a statement was available to made this week, it was right here. And boy, did Lexington Catholic make that statement. After Covington Catholic took an early 7-0 lead, the air barrage began by Beau Allen. Allen found Bracken for a 12 yard touchdown and then Gohmann for a 19 yard score to put the Knights on top after the first quarter. After... Read More →

3A Notebook: Taylor County Cardinals Alive and Well

By gchs_uk9 - Taylor County Fights Back to Top Cross-town Rival Campbellsville The banner held up by the Taylor County cheerleading squad prior to Friday night's city-county showdown with Class 1A #2 Campbellsville said "2019, the Year the Eagles Went Extinct." For much of the night it looked like the Cardinals of Taylor County were the birds in distress. However, two fourth quarter touchdowns by running back Wes Oliver and a late Carson Watson interception gave Taylor a 29-20 victory and gave notice to Class 3A that the Cardinals will be just as much of a threat in their new class as they were in Class...

Class 5A Notebook (9/8): Colonels Avoid Catastrophe In Colossal Catholic Collision

By DevilMayCare - Friday night's encounter between the Catholic school powers of Covington and Lexington boasted two of Kentucky's top college prospects and Mr. Football candidates. It was a matchup of teams featuring both standout individual talent and state championship aspirations. Yet, despite both teams being ranked in the top 5 of their respective classes and LexCath featuring the gifted right arm of Beau Allen, the popular opinion was that Covington Catholic simply had too much for the Knights. The prediction thread poll favored the Colonels by a final tally of 73-7, with most predictions calling for a... Read More →

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (2-0) – The Colonels absolutely rolled in their second game of the season, and in similar fashion to the last two seasons, they’ve had a running clock on their opponents in each of their first two games of the season.

6A Notebook 9/3 - Cream Rises To The Top

By Tigerpride94 - 6A Cream rises to the top. It is early in the season and the top 5 teams in 6A have demonstrated they are the cream rising to the top.

1A Notebook 9/2 - Big Wins?

By Voice of Reason - We had some notable wins for top 10 ranked teams in 1A this week. Of course, any win is a big win, but some are bigger than others.

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/2)

By Ram - Class 1A Three outcomes combined to really re-calibrate the teams on the Eastern side of Class 1A. Pikeville flexed their muscle in a playoff atmosphere against an out of state foe, Raceland was provided a reality check by rival Russell, and Paintsville served notice to the rest of the class with a come from behind win over Beechwood. The Tigers will now look to proclaim themselves the front runner as they will host Pikeville in a huge clash. Campbellsville continues to roll but will get one of their stiffest challenges against rival Taylor County. Williamsburg and Kentucky Country Day may... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 9/1- It is Dramatic Up Top

By ATLCat - Top-Ranked Cardinals Scrape by Tigers It was an uncomfortable feeling that Mayfield fans simply are not accustomed to. Not only were the Cardinals trailing in the Second Half, it was to an unranked team, and one from the Western part of the State. That combination simply has not seemed plausible over the tenure of Mayfield’s historic past, let alone when the Cardinals entered as the #1 team in their respective class. Trailing 16-14 to Hopkinsville heading into the 4th Quarter and facing a Tiger Offense that simply continued to make plays and convert 3rd Downs, Cardinal fans... Read More →

The Pirates get an off week before getting a very tough test in Ohio. 3. Corbin Redhounds (4A, 2-0)- Corbin is getting good at winning over Tennessee teams in their Pigskin Classic, this time knocking off a well-regarded Notre Dame... Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (9/1): Instability at the top

By DevilMayCare - Frederick Douglass' roster full of D1 talent persuaded BGP to anoint the Broncos as pre-season top dog in 5A. But over the course of two hours on August 16th, Trinity swiftly began removing the shine from FD's sterling finish. Though it was only a scrimmage, it was as hyped up a scrimmage as we've seen in recent memory, and the result left a bad taste in the mouth of anyone looking for the Broncos to run away with their new class. The lingering doubt from that PrepSpin streamed shellacking carried over into the regular season and left the door wide open for someone else to walk through and... Read More →
