    Wayyyy Too Early Top 5 Class 3A

    1. Boyle County- Rebels are absolutely stacked and may be on a different level than the rest of the class. Rebels have supreme athletes, experience, and a swagger that will be tough for any 3A team to contend with.

    2. Central- The Yellowjackets have several key play makers back and will be a tough test for anyone not named Boyle. The Yellowjacket run game will be hard to handle for sure and they still have playmakers on Defense.

    3. Belfry- The Pirates have a bitter sweet taste after falling from their 3A perch. Lots of questions at skill spots, but returning basically their entire D-Line and a VEry good O-line is a strong foundation.

    4. Corbin- Redhounds fell just shy and do have a solid nucleus, but losing Cameron Sizemore is a massive hole to fill. If the Hounds find a replacement they may very well shoot to #2, but losing the heartbeat of the team and the primary offensive weapon will be tough.

    5. Lexington Catholic- The Knights took a lot of losses to a lot of very good teams with a young squad. Lexington Catholic certainly has some firepower, but will thye have enough to hang with Boyle? Additionally can the Defense improve after giving up 48 points or more 6 times?

    I'm not exactly going out on a limb here, but if Boyle County can put anything resembling a competent offensive line on the field next season, they could run away with 3A like Secretariat at the Belmont. O-line is pretty much the only position group where the Rebels have any question marks whatsoever.

    Right now, IMO it's Boyle Co then everyone else.

    Losing Sizemore is a huge loss, but Corbin's offense should be good with virtually everyone else coming back, plus a couple of kids have enrolled or are rumored to be moving to the district who will be big additions. I expect Corbin to throw it even more this year with Estep stepping into the QB spot.

    The defensive side is where I expect a possible drop off where they suffered heavier losses. Sims and Money were dominant factors in every game except for the last one, and you have to give Coach Smith & Boyle Co. the credit for figuring out what no other team was able to do the entire year in neutralizing those two.

    Belfry is probably 4 or 5 in my opinion.
