Wayyyy Too Early Top 5 Class 3A1. 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?Advertisement

May 15, 18, 05:18 PM #3I'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.

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.

Jun 14, 18, 07:48 AM #7Great job ATLCAT! Football season is getting close and really excited on this upcoming season!
Jun 14, 18, 09:49 AM #8Boyle may be there in the end....but I do think to O-line will be a work in progress as only 1 starter (Ned Stephens-RG) returns.
Boyle lost from Left to Right: Ryan McClelland, Zane Young, Jon Yeager, and Will Bramel.
I am certain Coach Smith has a solid plan in place to rebuild, but without a doubt there will be some growing pains up front for the Rebels.
