    I guess our experiences are different, the majority of centers I see make the line calls and the quarterbacks don't make line calls.

    I'd go as far as arguing, if your team is a 90%/10%, or close, Run/pass, you could get away with your quarterback being the worst athlete on the field. Smart helps, but athletic is not a necessary item. Heck, if you are a spread team that throws predominately screens and short passes, your quarterback doesn't have to be that great to pass for 2,000 a year. I've actually seen this quite a bit. No vertices, but short pitch and runs.

    Yep. I've seen a lot teams lose games because the center was under attack and couldn't control snaps. He touches the ball on every single play and if you have a good nose tackle, you can exploit a less then good center and make a dramatic difference in a game. That, and the center starts every play with one hand.

    I've argued it before, but I totally disagree. The Center always has been, and still is the most important position on the field in high school. And, on many teams, depending on the type of offense they play, the leading rusher is the second most important. If a high school team throws a lot, I would even argue that the leading receiver is more import then the quarterback because if you watch, a lot of times the receiver makes the...

    Year in and year out, BGP is consistently more accurate then any other rankings in the state. So, there's that.

    And, I would say most of the top tier teams do the same.

    Class 6A St. Xavier and Trinity at the top? Yeah, no shock there! Trinity has ruled 6A with an iron fist but the Tigers will look to turn the tide with former Bowling Green Head Coach Kevin Wallace taking over. St. Xavier will get the small school Catholic power DeSales in Wallace's 6A debut. Trinity will take on perennial Indiana powerhouse Carmel in the Indianapolis suburbs. Some newer faces start the season in the Top 10 such as Butler and...

    Class 5A Covington Catholic was miles ahead of the rest of Class 5A in 2017 going a perfect 15-0 and never really breaking a sweat. A dominant Senior Class is gone, so expect the field to make serious headway tracking in on the Colonels. A win against 6A Ryle could make a nice statement that the Colonels are still the team to beat. The three primary teams expected to challenge each have their own quality competition to sharpen their blades...

    Class 4A Johnson Central was humbled in a re-match with Franklin-Simpson and has had all off-season to flashback visions of the Wildcats' speed and big play ability. Franklin-Simpson will get straight to work on their repeat bid against the always well coached Elizabethtown Panthers while Matney's Golden Eagles bide their time. Three different teams in the back half of the Top 10 all open with tough draws, most notably Hopkinsville testing...

    Class 3A Expectations have not been this high for a Chuck Smith team since those legendary squads of the early 2000's. The Rebels appear the clear front runner in 3A and will open with a chance to make a statement against a quality 6A Ballard squad. Central is flying under the radar a bit despite returning a ton of talent from an excellent team and will have their own Top 10 6A clash. Elizabethtown and Lexington Catholic each have interesting...

    Class 2A Many coaches subscribe to the theory of opening the season with a winnable game. Get your feet under you and then focus on bigger and badder foes once you find your rhythm. That obviously is not the approach of the Pre-Season Top 3 teams in Class 2A as Mayfield, Christian Academy- Louisville, and DeSales all open with headliner games against teams who will enter Top 5 in their respective classes. Newport Central Catholic will also...

    Class 1A No matter the year, no matter the roster, Beechwood will be a pre-season title contender in Class 1A. The Tigers took home the 2017 trophy and will be the team everyone is chasing once more. Class 1A will be absolutely stacked in the Eastern Semi-State with four of the Top Five teams all hailing from the Mountain Region. A pair of teams expecting to take huge steps forward will highlight the remaining spots in the Top 7....

    Truer words can not be spoken. One year, they had a team winning Raceland's district that was not even in that district. One year, they had one of Raceland's players as the pre-season player of the year, the problem was he graduated the previous year. I could go on and on, as could many other people. But, the good news is, the Bluegrasspreps Class Previews and Regional Power Rankings will be coming out soon and you will be pleased.
