Jul 30, 19, 12:11 PM #31Fredrick Douglas has one of the largest collection of D1 talent I’ve ever seen on one team. They aren’t lower tier D1 either but power 5 conference D1 talent. Fredrick Douglas (along with Scott Co) are two of the upper teams in the state no matter the classification. The district as a whole might be one of the toughest based on the top three teams of Fredrick Douglas, Scott Co and Montgomery Co. While Great Crossing might have growing pains or number issues they still have Rains as a HC who would be considered one of the top HCs in the state. It will be interesting to see the typical top 5A teams play Fredrick Douglas and Scott Co come playoff time.Advertisement

Looking at the schedule for Montgomery Co. they got a tough draw having to play Scott Co. and Douglass on back to back weeks. That would be tough for anyone.

Players win games and Douglass has more 5-star players than any team in Lexington this year, and that includes the Big Blue team that plays on Saturday.

Aug 10, 19, 02:07 PM #35Our hosts were discussing the view that 5A is the toughest class do you agree?

Aug 11, 19, 11:49 AM #39The person asked if 5A was the toughest class and not if the best team in the state was in 5A. The goal is to win a state title in the class you are in. Corbin or Beechwood don’t care how good the big three are. They don’t care if they can beat them. Fredrick Douglas and Scott Co didn’t pick 5A it’s just where they were told to play. Saying Fredrick Douglas hasn’t won a stare title yet I don’t believe is much of a measuring stick. They’ve only played two seasons. I would say last year they would of been considered or at least in the discussion of being one of the top 5 teams in the state.
I’m sure there are others and I don’t mean to leave out anyone. That is a pretty solid top 7 or so. How does that match up with the top 7 or so of the other classes.

Everyone knows Fredrick Douglas has some exceptional players but replacing Fishback is tough. The kid wasn’t just a great athlete but the intensity he played with you don’t see very often. They are of course replacing a QB too.
Cov Cath has the man child at TE. They’ve got people returning and they are reloading but replacing their RB might be tough.
South Warren just keeps building and developing players. Just like his father’s teams South Warren just always appears to have players. I think South Warren does what Scott Co does. They take their average kid and develop them to kick the snot out of your average kid.
Bowling Green I don’t know anything about but they’re Bowling Green.
Pulaski Co has built a very solid program.
Highlands is Highlands and with the new offense who knows. I do think Highlands has lost some of the shine to other teams.
South Oldham I’ve heard will have a really solid team.
All of this is from very little education and I wish everyone the best.

2. Scott Co
5. South Oldham
They have a lot of firepower back and the defense looks good. Will find out just how good vs a good CAL team in week one!
Aug 18, 19, 09:22 AM #44I think it's more like this:
1. Scott Co - Clear favorite. Return a lot and were really tough last year in 6A. They beat Moeller at Moeller last year with a lot of Jrs. They should cruse to a State Championship.
2-4 Is about even in my opinion...
2. Bowling Green - is Bowling Green, plus Mr Football candidate.
3. Fredrick Douglass - Great talent, watched the scrimmage vs Trinity and not so sure they are the favorite as many others do. Something important is missing, maybe it will come together as the year goes on.
4. Cov Cath - best player in state, best coach in the state. They will not be as good as last year I think though. Lost the schools all-time RB and some key OL.
5. Highlands - A lot of talent returns, hopefully taking another step toward returning to greatness. New offensive will not be as predictable.
6. South Warren - Great coach and team, it would be shocking if they can replace the amount of impact players they lost to graduation. If they are 70% of what they were last year that would be good.
