    The majority opinion seems to be that a line exists under Covington Catholic, Bowling Green, and South Warren, separating them to some degree from the rest of 5A. The second tier includes the likes of Highlands (5-1), Southwestern (5-0), Anderson County (5-0), South Oldham (4-1), and Owensboro (3-2). Two part question… who's the best of that second group? And secondly, is that team a legitimate championship threat?

    Cline is a versatile talent. Russell did a great job keeping him hemmed in as a runner. I think he averaged less than a yard a carry the other night. But he made a big impact catching the ball. It's hard to keep him quiet for four quarters. Barker will find a way to get him the ball in space one way or another. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Bath's improvement on defense this year. They look well ahead of where they were at this point last...

    For the very reason I stated above. Russell is simply a better team than West Carter, but I think West is better than what they showed against the Devils. You could tell from the body language of team leaders like Rivers and McGregor and how vocal they were on the sideline that they knew they were better than 49-14 would suggest. If Daniel Barker is the coach that a lot of people think he is, this should be a great week of practice for the...

    I think Bath County can do what Russell did to the Comets - control the line of scrimmage. As usual, Swartz and the running game will be hard to slow down. But I do think that Bath will see a better version of West Carter than the one I saw last week. I'm sure they'll be looking to atone for their poor showing vs. Russell. They don't want to fall to 0-2 in the district and put themselves in a position where they might have to win out to avoid...

    Back to back tough road games for the Rams. This could pay off later in the year if Raceland finds itself in a hostile environment in November. I think Heighton could make a huge difference again this week. Raceland got poor QB play last year during this stretch vs. Portsmouth West and Somerset. Jake didn't necessarily light it up last week, but he was very efficient and took care of the ball. As a result, the Rams avenged an L from last...

    The Mayfield (6-0) march continued its roll right through Corbin. The Cardinals clubbed the Redhounds 45-21. Murray (4-2) has won three straight in impressive fashion, including a 59-12 beatdown of Russellville last Friday. These long time rivals know each other well. Mayfield has owned this series dating back to the 90’s.

    CAL (5-0) had Week 5 off, while Meade County (2-4) lost a close one to John Hardin, 15-9. If the Centurions get caught looking ahead to next week's titanic showdown with DeSales, this game could become an unnecessary four quarter struggle.

    Following an inauspicious 0-2 start to the season, the Aces (4-2) have righted the ship and won four straight. McLean County (3-2) got doubled up by Logan County last week 40-20. These teams have one common opponent - OCath beat Apollo by 3, McLean lost to them by 3.

    The Scotties (5-1) saw their spotless record stained by a 48-21 setback to Franklin-Simpson. Green County's (1-5) lone credited victory was the result of a forfeit. This begins what should be an easy district slate for Glasgow. They routed Green County last year, 50-0.

    The Ads (3-3) beat Garrard County 28-22 last week. But quite frankly, they haven't looked good so far this year. Far from the explosive team we saw a year ago. The graduation losses have taken a bigger toll than most people thought they would. Tates Creek (2-2) got clobbered in its first two games before winning its next two. Danville won this game 27-24 last season.

    Lloyd (4-1) had a bad run-in with Beechwood in Week 1, but have otherwise been stout on defense. They'll need that defense to show up against Conner (4-1). The Cougars handled Newport Central Catholic 34-18 last week.

    LCA (4-2) begins district play after consecutive wins over Kentucky Country Day and Walton-Verona. The Eagles hung 76 points on Middlesboro (1-5) last year.

    This is one of the biggest small school match-ups in the state this week. The Jumpers made the long trip to Raceland last year and returned home with a 16-13 win. Now it's Raceland's turn to hit the road. Outside of a nightmare half of football versus Beechwood, Somerset (5-1) has played lights out on defense. The Rams (5-1) crossed the Ohio River into enemy territory and knocked off top 5 ranked Portsmouth West, 27-15.

    Now that district play is underway for most teams, it would be a good time to break down each one. There will be no cross bracketing this year for 5A. The districts will be paired straight up, 1 through 8 for the playoffs. District 1 Coming into this season, D1 looked to be one of the most hotly contested districts in the class. Defending champion Christian County had it's house cleaned by graduation and off-season transfers; Owensboro...

    I think they need to do more than just win. Paintsville needs to go to NKY and dominate this game. They've been entrenched in the 1A top 5 for a few years now. But they seem vulnerable this season.

    Good stuff, gchs. Central's worst case scenario says a lot about their half of the bracket. They could probably afford an off night or two (or three or four) and still get to the Grocery Bag.

    Game of the week in 5A. Both teams come in with matching 3-2 records. They've split the last eight meetings at four apiece dating back to 2007. Former CC QB Kolbe Langhi shredded Owensboro’s secondary for 310 yards and 6 TDs last year. Where will the offense come from this year? Can the Colonels muster enough to grab another win over the Red Devils, or will Owsley, Warren, and the rest of Owensboro's offense win the day?

    The Bearcats (5-0) had a bye week to reset their focus and prepare for the back half of the season. Grant County (1-5) won its season opener, but has since dropped five straight.

    The well rested Warriors (5-0) return from their bye week to entertain Central Hardin (2-4). This will be the Bruins’ third game against a top 5 team from 5A.

    The Dragons (4-1) got an early jump on another district title with a crucial 23-17 win over Oldham County. Nelson County (0-5) continued its struggles with a 33-21 loss to Bullitt East. South Oldham manhandled Nelson County 63-0 last season.

    Bowling Green last week, South Warren this week. Greenwood's (2-4) bye week can't come soon enough. The Spartans (6-0) hammered their visitors from Colorado, 46-0. That makes six running clock victories for South Warren in as many games this season.

    The Purples (6-0) got their district schedule off on the right foot by smacking Greenwood 49-7. On the other end of the spectrum, Grayson County (4-2) saw its Cinderella start dashed by South Warren two weeks ago before dropping their second straight to Allen County-Scottsville last Friday.

    I hope you guys are right. I know Fleming is young and they've struggled for most of this season, but they've had success against Russell. Bill Spencer knows Russell well. Him and his kids won't enter this game feeling like they're in over their heads. I'm sure that'll be part of TJ’s message to his guys this week. Fleming has commanded Russell's respect. Especially in recent years. Russell's got to keep doing all of the little things right....
