6A Notebook: 9/17 Drooling at the Mouth!

By Bac2369 - Drooling at the Mouth! It has been a very odd season so far in Kentucky 6A High School football. It is a bit unsettling to look through this class and see a winless Trinity team. The same can be said for St. Xavier, even though they sit at 1-2 on the season with a chance to go to 2-2 or 1-3. Let’s just jump right in and start from the top. #1 Male hosted 4A Western this week after a big win over Trinity the week before. Male would make quick work of Western, 43-0, their third shutout of the season. The Male defense has given up an impressive total of only six points all season through... Read More →


Louisville Power Rankings 9/17

By TheDeuce - 1. 6A Male (5-0) The Bulldogs kept rolling and posted their third shutout in five games last Friday, throttling 4A Western 43-0. The Male defense has given up a total of six (SIX) points all season. Joe Kuerzi led the way defensively for the Dawgs with nine tackles. The offense was very balanced once again, with six players scoring, three rushing and three receiving. QB Garrett Dennis tossed three TD passes. Male travels across town for a showdown with 6A Butler. 2. Christian Academy - Louisville (4-0) Led by Harrison Zimmerer's 145 rushing yards and two touchdowns, CAL left no doubt... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/17)

By Ram - Class 1A With Pikeville's loss to 3A power Belfry only two teams remain undefeated in Class 1A, Fulton County and Lynn Camp. Lynn Cmap makes their Top 10 debut this week. Pikeville and top-ranked Beechwood stay put in their rankings while putting up valiant efforts against top-tier schools from larger classes. The Panthers will look to jump back on the winning side making the long trip to the home of the Mothman to take on a very strong Point Pleasant, West Virginia squad. Also crossing state lines for a huge game will be #3 Raceland as they take on undefeated Portsmouth West from the... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (9/16): Midterms

By DevilMayCare - Grading the Top 10 I never really wanted to be a teacher. It's not that I don't like kids. I just don't like dealing with 20 of them at a time. This type of classroom really suits me… there's only ten of them and they can't talk back to me. Covington Catholic: A+ You could argue that the defending champs have exceeded expectations thus far. Obviously, we thought they'd be good, as evidenced by their preseason #1 ranking. But there were question marks surrounding some key positions - QB, LB, DB. Sophomore Caleb Jacob hasn't quite been AJ Mayer, but he's been close enough. And the... Read More →



Western Kentucky Power Rankings - September 16, 2018

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2018 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 5 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, ON THE ROAD AGAIN!!! I don’t think I recall a week of doing these rankings (this is the 4th year) where all top 8 teams were all on the road in the SAME week. I understand for every game there is usually a home and a visiting team, but don’t recall that many road warriors at the top of our ranking! We have some shake up for sure in the lower 5 this week! Let’s find out how they did last week! Popcorn N Coke Top 10 Version – Week 5: 1. Bowling Green 5A (5-0): Win... Read More →


3A Notebook: West Side Story

By gchs_uk9 - Caldwell and Tilghman Secure Meaningful Wins Before District Play When West Side Story was released on Broadway in 1957, it told the story of two rival gangs competing for turf in an Upper West Side neighborhood of New York City. In the play it was the Jets and Sharks looking to control the territory. In Kentucky Class 3A football in 2018, one could say it is the Tigers and Tornado looking to take control. And after three consecutive years of seeing the region trophy go home to Elizabethtown, both Caldwell County and Paducah Tilghman are looking to secure their own passage to the state... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 9/26 - Defense Defines

By ATLCat - The Defense Never Rests Two Touchdowns per game. Meet any Defensive Coordinator and he will tell you that if you can allow just 14 points per game that his Defense is going to put his Offense in position to win any game and deep playoff success is a strong probability. As the sample size for the season finally starts to grow we can get a good indication of which teams are giving their Offense a chance to win the game by simply seeing what teams are under this magic number. For some of the stronger programs such as DeSales and Mayfield will be exceptions to the rule. These are programs... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 9-16

By ATLCat - 1. Corbin Redhounds (3A, 4-0)- Corbin jumps back into action this week in a big way travelling to Clarksville, TN to take on the powerhouses Mayfield Cardinals. This series has been tremendously competitive and expect that to continue. 2. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 3-1)- Moore was a quality challenge for Johnson Central, but the boys from Paintsville were too strong. District play starts with an over-matched Boyd County team. 3. Belfry Pirates (3A, 3-1)- Belfry got every bit the challenge from Pikeville they were looking for and then some, but the Pirates claimed the big road... Read More →


1A Notebook 9/12 - Churning Butter

By Voice of Reason - Teams are now about one third of the way through their schedules. Almost every team has played at least one game that pushes them out of their comfort zone. If you want to make butter, you need to churn the milk. You have to churn away to get that smooth, refined butter. Teams are churning away at themselves trying to get rid of the sour parts and produce that sweet final product - the product that can get you deep in the playoffs and position you to challenge for a title. Last week a lot of our top teams in 1A did some hard churning. Half of the top ten suffered losses as they tested... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Central Kentucky Power Rankings 9-12-18 Week 4

By PurplePride92 - Another week is in the books and there really wasn’t much movement at all in this week’s rankings. For the most part the top 10 teams took care of business this week. Let’s jump in to this week’s rankings. Top Ten: 1. Scott County(6A, 4-0) Scott County faced Ohio power Archbishop Moeller last Friday night and escaped with a 10-7 victory. This victory has solidified Scott County not only as the #1 team in Central Kentucky but also as one of the top 3 teams overall in the state of Kentucky. Running back Austin Barnett carried the ball for 193 yards and 1 touchdown as Scott County now... Read More →

Northern Kentucky Power Rankings: 09-12-18

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (4-0) – Cov Cath checked off a 19th straight win and a 4th win this season when they routed the OH-DII Kings Knights 42-9 on Friday. The running clock victory didn’t count towards the team’s in-state streak, but puts the Colonels at 4-4 on running clock wins this season. RB Casey McGinness put on show in the game, with 235 all-purpose yards and 4 TDs. QB Caleb Jacob went 11-16 passing for 204yds and 1 TD, and junior TE Michael Mayer led receiving with 5 receptions for 86yds. On the defensive side, LB Wyatt Schwartz, DE Grant Hemmer, DE Ross Halverstadt, and LB Michael... Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (9/11): Tiger Down

By DragonFire - If it seems like just a week ago we were bullish on #5 Hopkinsville’s season, it’s because it was just a week ago. The Tigers grabbed a win over Caldwell County, who themselves had already beaten Christian County, Hopkinsville’s next opponent. It seemed possible, even probable, that Hoptown would grab a win over their rival, challenge historical rival Paducah Tilghman, and springboard into district play. That’s all done now. After Hopkinsville started with a 7-0 lead over Christian County, they found themselves behind 8-7 at the half. Then came the season changer – QB Javier Bland... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 9/10- The 2A Stock Report

By ATLCat - Stock Report Now that the dust has settled after four weeks, The Notebook will determine how the stocks of some of the Top 2A Programs are doing and what kind of advisement we might have for the market in it's current state. DeSales- Stock Up, Blue Chip The Colts have done everything asked of them and then some moving to the top spot with their early season work. The Colt Offense is getting the job done and the Defense remains stout as expected. Even with a big battle with CAL looming, a loss does not necessarily mean you will be out in the cold. Take my word, this is a very robust stock... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/10)

By Ram - Class 1A It was a separation Friday in Class 1A with some huge games helping to sort the pack. Beechwood may have lost to 3A Corbin, but they still proved they are one of the better small school teams in the State. Pikeville put everyone on alert by dominating Paintsville. Both the Tigers and Panthers take it up yet another notch this week drawing perhaps both team's stiffest regular season opponent. Raceland needed two days to put away a solid 4A Greenup County and Hazard came up short against 2A Somerset. The biggest game featuring two 1A teams will be Paintsville travelling to... Read More →
