BluegrassPreps Lexington/Central Kentucky Area Power Rankings 10-18-18

By PurplePride92 - For the first time this year I am at an impasse when it comes to the Central Kentucky/Lexington Area Power Rankings. After seeing last week’s results I can’t find a good reason to make a change in the rankings. And believe me, I’ve been looking for a reason to make some kind of change. I just can’t do it. I don’t see any reason to change anything. Because of that I am going to change things up a bit this week. I think there are many different things that can be touched on regarding the Central Kentucky/Lexington Area so after I post the Top Ten, Be On The Lookout For, Game of the Week, Last...

BluegrassPreps.com Mr. Football Watchlist (10/18)

By DevilMayCare - Quarterbacks Beau Buchanan, Bowling Green (7-1, ranked #2 in 5A) Week 8: Last Friday night was a night to forget if you are in any way, shape, or form associated with Bowling Green football. The Purples were simply outclassed in every way by Warren Central (IN). Buchanan must have felt like he was playing against the ‘85 Bears. He finished 11 of 27 for 40 yards and a TD. Season to date: 142 of 236 for 1,695 yards and 17 TDs with 4 ints. Stock: DOWN Read More →


NKY Power Rankings: 10-18-18

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (8-0) – On Friday, the Colonels extended an undefeated that dates back to August of 2017 by pulling out a nail-biter of a win, beating 5A Highlands (6-2) by a score of 21-14. The outcome of the game was still in question until Cov Cath defense managed to make a big 4th and 7 stop at their own 33 yard line with only 40 seconds left in the game. The passing game was lacking on Friday, with QB Caleb Jacob only at 4-10 passing for 45yds and no TDs through the air. RB Casey McGinness carried for 203yds and 2 TDs, and Duncan Summe added the other TD on a 9yd carry. Jack... Read More →


1A Notebook 10/17 - Set the Stage

By Voice of Reason - We are getting closer and closer to showtime. This week will wrap up the district races and set the stage for playoff time and elimination football games. The top teams in the rankings did what was expected with no major upsets. Here is where we are district by district. District 1 Crittenden County continues to roll on. They had no problem with Fulton County in a 59-8 win. Sr. RB Devon Nesbitt led the way in this win with 189 yards on 18 rushes and four touchdowns. Pilots RB Caleb Kimble continued adding to his season totals with 104 yards rushing and a touchdown. Kimble is second in... Read More →



Louisville Power Rankings 10/15

By TheDeuce - 1. 6A St. Xavier (6-2) Since starting 0-2, the St. X has improved each week, despite multiple injuries to key players, specifically their starting QB. He didn't play last week, but that did not keep the Tigers from winning their sixth straight game, and knocking off previously unbeaten 6A Male, 28-13. Backup QB Douglas Bodhaine led the way, going 9/13 for 125 yards and a score through the air. He also added 90 rushing yards and another TD. The Tigers travel to 6A Butler this week. 2. 6A Male (8-1) It took eight weeks, but Male finally ran into a team who's defense was better, even if it... Read More →


6A Notebook 10/17: Shocking Results

By Bac2369 - The 6A Kentucky football season continues its wild ways as the 6A Game of the Week left us with shocking results. District play has also been in full swing and Simon Kenton and McCracken County have locked up the 1 seed in the playoffs for their respective districts. Last week's "Game of the Week" featured #1 Male and #3 Saint Xavier. #1 Male got on the board first via a pass from a blown coverage. Saint Xavier punted on the next drive but they recovered the punt after it hit a Male player. Saint Xavier would turn that into points, knotting the game at 7-7 late in the first quarter. Saint...

Class 4A Notebook (10/15): A Little Shakeup

By DragonFire - Last week's notebook asked where are the upsets, and finally, 4A had an answer. To be fair, it was right in the week we were looking for them, but still, it was a prolonged period of calm. Knox Central entered the week rated #4 and unbeaten against Kentucky competition. They traveled to #7 Franklin County for a possible region final preview, good enough to earn honors as the game of the week in 4A. Franklin County drew first blood and the mental edge, flying (if you'll excuse the pun) to a 42-20 victory. They never trailed, enjoying leads of 14-0, 28-6, and 42-14. It was a dominating...

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/15)

By Ram - Class 1A Paintsville needed everything they had to withstand a late charge from Hazard after building a big lead in a battle of Top 5 wins last week. The Tigers will need to put two strong halves together if they hope to take down Raceland up by the Ohio River. Lynn Camp kept their undefeated dreams alive with a convincing win over Harlan. The Wildcats now face the biggest hurdle of the season when they host Williamsburg with the district title on the line. Frankfort may not have a number by their name, but the Panthers are right on front porch of the Top 10 and can kick the door down with... Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (10/14): Birds raise stock in defeat

By DevilMayCare - During the build up to CovCath/Highlands, predictions ranged from a Highlands upset to a running clock victory for the Colonels. Someone even called for both outcomes in the same post in the pregame thread. The majority opinion seemed to be that, while Highlands was greatly improved over the past couple of years, Covington Catholic was simply too good to fall prey to the upset. A Highlands win would have turned the top of 5A upside down. Conversely, a lopsided CovCath victory would have affirmed the Colonels’ status as 5A championship favorites. Instead, what we got was somewhere in between.... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 10/14- Sorting Out the Playoff Picture

By ATLCat - District 1 Mayfield is the #1 team in the State so it lends itself the Cardinals have essentially locked down another District Title. Technically, this week's Ballard Memorial and Murray game is left to define the 2-seed, but we can go ahead and pencil Murray in as the 2-seed. Ballard Memorial defeated Webster County head to head so the Bombers will claim the 3-spot unless they pull the shocking upset. Projected Finish: 1. Mayfield 2. Murray 3. Ballard Memorial 4. Webster County Read More →


NKY Power Rankings: 10-11-18

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (7-0) – The Colonels headed up to Indianapolis on Friday to take on IN-3A Bishop Chatard (6-2), and came home with an important 52-36 win over the Trojans. The Colonels had their hands full at halftime, but were able to pull away in the second half, thanks largely to sophomore Caleb Jacob’s phenomenal work at QB. Caleb was 19-30 passing for 385yds and 3 TDs. WR Jack Coldiron stacked up 145yds and 1 TD receiving, and TE Michael Mayer added 129yds and 2 TDs receiving, while RB Casey McGinness came in strong, as always, with 158yds rushing for 2 TDs.
