These are the last rankings of the regular season Power Rankings. Thanks to everyone who's read and/or discussed over the course of the season! We will still have the Power Rankings over the next couple/few weeks, they just may look a little different given we are starting the playoffs this week. Good luck to all the teams in the pursuit of a State Title!


1. 6A Saint Xavier (7-3)

After reeling off seven in a row, the Tigers traveled to face a tough out-of-state opponent, and dropped their regular season finale to Cincinnati Saint Xavier 34-7. Luke Spears scored the lone touchdown for the Tigers, as the Bombers held them to 88 total yards. The Tigers will host 6A Ohio County in the first round of the playoffs this Friday.

2. 6A Male (9-1)
The Dawgs were off last week, finishing the regular season on a BYE. They will host 6A Meade County in the first round of the playoffs on Friday.

3. 2A Christian Academy - Louisville (10-0)
CAL finished their regular season in the same way they started, in winning fashion, disposing of 2A Bullitt East 44-6. Led by Clayton Masters (9/13, 142 yards, 2TD) and Harrison Zimmerer (15 carries, 102 yards, TD), the Centurions handled an under-matched BE team and completed an undefeated regular season! CAL hosts 2A Covington Holy Cross to open the playoffs this weekend.

4. 2A DeSales (9-1)
With one final tune up before the playoffs, DeSales took on 5A Southern in their regular season finale, and defeated the Trojans 31-7 last Friday. Aaron Pfaadt carried the load, racking up 232 total yards and 4TD's in the win. The Colts will host 2A Newport this Friday.

5. 6A Butler (7-3)
The Bears had last week off in preparation for the start of the playoffs. They will travel to 6A Central Hardin to begin post-season play this Friday.

6. 5A South Oldham (9-1)
South Oldham went on the road last Friday and picked up their ninth win in a row, knocking off 4A Shelby County 27-0. Keaton Martin lead the way for the Dragons, piling up 163 yards on 15 carries and two touchdowns. They will host 5A Fairdale in the first round of the playoffs this Friday.

7. 5A Oldham County (9-1)
The Colonels finished out their regular season with three impressive wins, including a 42-6 thrashing of 6A Jeffersontown last Friday. Juan Tapia had an impressive night on the ground, logging 114 yards on 10 carries and three touchdowns. Lucas Jones added another 117 rushing yards and two scores. OC will host 5A Doss this Friday.

8. 6A Trinity (4-6)
The Rocks had the week off last week, and will host 6A Muhlenberg County to open the playoffs this Friday.

9. 4A Moore (9-1)
Moore finished their regular season on a five game winning streak, defeating 3A Henry County 28-14 last Friday. Larry Johnson lead the Mustangs in scoring, reaching the end zone twice in eight attempts. They will host 4A West Jessamine in the first round of the playoffs this Friday.

10. 6A North Hardin (8-2)
QB Eric Moore had a fantastic night as North Hardin wrapped up their regular season defeating 4A Doss 39-8 last week. Moore threw 13/19 for 183 yards and four touchdowns in the victory. Lavell Wright also added 112 rushing yards and a score for the Trojans. This week, they'll host 6A Manual in a first round playoff match up.


Game of the Week: 6A North Hardin vs. 6A Manual
Unlike most First Round games, this one could actually be pretty decent. North Hardin's losses have come from two teams at the top of their classes, in 2A DeSales (27-24) and 3A Boyle County (21-14). Manual's losses have come from the top of the class in 6A, Male, Saint Xavier and Butler, as well as a loss to 3A Central. Both teams are battle tested which should lead to one of the better 1st Round games in the state.
