From deep in the heart of Booger Branch, KY comes The Swami. Last year he honored us with his presence as he predicted individual outcomes for team's seasons. This year he has agreed to dust off his crystal ball and share his weekly predictions for Class 2A each week. If you have a specific 2A game that is not included, feel free to ask and we can see if the Swami can calibrate his sooth saying and offer a bonus pick just for you.

Remember folks, this is all in fun... knowing the future can be hard to handle. So please save all hate mail, bomb threats, and general ill wishes until the Swami returns to Booger Branch at season's end for his yoga and meditation.

Without further ado....

#1 Christian Academy- Louisville at 6A Central Hardin
A 6A foe is not a foreign match to C-A-L,
Yet a team with Semi-Final potential is a much tougher nail.
With a big and talented front, the DLine must do their jobs.
Otherwise they will be seeing a huge night out of Jacob Hobbs.
Don’t fear too much, Milton Wright comes to the rescue.
CAL pulls out a nail-biter on the Cecilia, KY fescue.

#2 Danville vs. 3A Boyle County
When a rival comes calling there’s no time to clown.
The Rebs are charging in the Battle of Title Town
Danville has speed and has had Boyle’s number,
Walker and Harris on Defense must bring the lumber.
Boyle makes them work and gives them a fright,
But in the end Danville survives to take the night.

#3 DeSales vs. 1A Louisville Holy Cross
It’s not easy being a private in a city with X and T
These rivals renews for Southside Tuition School supremacy.
Holy Cross is no joke, one of their better teams in a while.
Unfortunately for them, DeSales is stacking foes in a pile.
The Colts make it ugly and control the line against the Cross,
The Cougars tail gets bobbed, they leave with a lopsided loss.

#4 Mayfield at 3A Paducah Tilghman
The Cardinals have a thing for schools on the Fujita Scale,
They already bested a Gold Tornado, now it’s the Blue’s tale.
Tilghman is showing promise, their Defense has been so strong.
Mayfield has been rolling on Offense, their receivers go long.
Tilghman plays with pride, may even take a lead on a 4th Down they go for.
The Cards aren’t alarmed at all and soon the storm blows over.

#5 Lexington Christian Academy at Vincennes-Lincoln, IN
These Alices will soon learn this is no Wonder Land.
LCA is coming to take no prisoners, not even sparing the band.
Wheatley will pound the rock and Burden goes over the top.
Lincoln soon finds out that Nieves and his crew are too much to stop.
A long bus ride is never fun, unless it’s after a big rout.
LCA sings karaoke all the way home while bragging how they are so stout.

#6 Newport Central Catholic at 6A Campbell County
The Breds are two for two against bigger schools in the Northern panhandle
Up next are the humped alpacas that they wish to manhandle.
The NCC D has been balling, they are tough to put up points on.
Campbell County let it slip away against Highlands, they don’t want their momentum gone.
If the Breds could pull this out their ego would be in the clouds,
Unfortunately the Defense finally breaks under the pressure of Alex Dowds.

#7 Owensboro Catholic at 5A Owensboro
The way was not friendly when Catholic crossed the border.
A shutout and beatdown to Reitz was not their favorite order.
The road doesn’t get easier, rival Owensboro is next in line.
After two pedestrian performances, they need Vonn Williams to shine.
Most will side with the boys from the final level of Dante’s Inferno.
I would be careful with that prediction or your may get burned though.

#8 Glasgow vs. 3A Fort Campbell
By beating Bardstown, The Scotties did the job,
With a 3-0 start people will start screaming “FEAR THE DOG!”
Fort Campbell has fallen on hard times since their Championship boasts.
Glasgow runs all over them, 100+ yards for Dontavis Oates.
This one gets ugly fast, watch the clock as it rolls.
Glasgow steamrolls the Falcons running behind Tanner Bowles.

#9 Walton-Verona vs. 4A Holmes
The comeback came short and they fell to K-C-D.
A big bounceback victory is what the Swami can see.
Holmes is doing good things, new facilities and a new field.
This Friday that positive step forward will just have to yield.
Dub-Vee rushes for over 300 hundred and score almost at will,
A 4 TD margin gives the blue clad folks a mighty fine thrill.

#10 Somerset vs. 1A Beechwood
While other schools step up, the Jumpers step down.
The second of three from 1A, but this one's the best around.
The Tigers have balance, size, and also James Davis.
By night's end the D-Line will be screaming “someone please save us”
Somerset keeps it respectable, they mount some yards to their name
The Beechies just are too sharp, they will comfortably win this game.
