    I "believe" Hopkinsville would have to travel for a regional finals matchup at most likely Franklin Simpson. Lot of talent in Hoptown, but if they play that cupcake schedule again it will be very hard for them to beat a team the can match them for the most part athletically IMO.
    If Hoptown wins district 1 and FS wins district 2 and if both get to the region finals, Hoptown would host next year being an odd numbered year. Winner would host state semi-final.

    Allen Co. returns their QB but he had a bad knee injury. Hopefully he will be able to play next year. If so, I expect them to give FS a harder time in 2017.

    What about Madisonville? Their talent level seems to fluctuate a lot but about every five years or so they seem to have a really good team. Two years ago they played eventual state runner-up Owensboro to a one-point game in the region final I believe.

    I saw in the newspaper that Hopkinsville was playing Mayfield next year in their second game

    I think Hoptown also added Caldwell County not 100% positive but I believe they did.

    That Hoptown/Caldwell rivalry used to be a hot one.

    Not only the game but stealing each others players during the off season. This was 50-60's vintage. I'm sure that never goes on now.

    Does and one have a 2017 Hoptown, FS and SW schedule that they can post? I know they create these a couple years in advance.

    FS will have three district games:

    Allen Co., Warren East, Warren Central.

    Traditional rival:

    Russellville

    Games I think are firm:

    South Warren, Caldwell Co, Greenwood, Meade County

    Not for sure:

    Metcalfe Co.

    One I wish for:

    Glasgow

    Glasgow is on the schedule. Caldwell is off. Open up with E-town. Should be one of the best opening matchups in week 0 in my opinion. First half of the year will be a pretty brutal schedule for us.

    E-town
    Monroe
    South Warren
    Greenwood
    Glasgow

    I don't have our schedule in front of me as I type this but I think this is how it goes early. Meade County is in here somewhere. It is either before or after Glasgow. Hope that helps.

    Like you I was relying on memory....big mistake for me. I totally forgot Monroe.

    Really glad to see Glasgow. That should be like the Russellville game. A fixture.

    Elizabethtown will be a good one. The last one sure was. 1996, I think, FS put together a late long drive for the winning TD.

    I don't think that is a brutal schedule opening the year for a 4A state finalist. 3 of the 5 opening games are versus 2A opponents. A brutal schedule would be opening against all 5A or 6A schools. Monroe was 3-8 and Glasgow finished 8-3 without any "quality" wins. Allen county was their best win and they struggled. Etown should be pretty good with what they have returning. I just don't see those opponents as what I would consider brutal.

    Good luck trying to knock Hopkinsville's non-district schedule in 2017:

    Scrimmage: Owensboro
    Week 0: South Warren
    Week 1: Mayfield
    Week 2: Caldwell Co.
    Week 3: Christian Co.
    Week 4: Paducah Tilghman
    Week 5: BYE
    Week 6: Madisonville-North Hopkins
    Week 7: Logan Co.
    Week 8: Calloway Co.
    Week 9: Hopkins Co. Central
    Week 10: Greenwood

    Don't know that those teams are in any order.

    Regardless of order that IS NOT a brutal out of district schedule for FS. It's not a bad schedule, but far from brutal. Hopkinsville has some tough out of district opponents for sure.
