    The Daily Independent credits Johnson Central with 578 rushing yards. Joe Jackson had a huge night with 332 yards and 5 touchdowns. Devin Johnson complimented Jackson with 192 yards and a touchdown of his own. Their offensive line and blocking backs get such a great push at the point of attack, and their ball carriers hit the whole with authority. It's hard to get them off the field. Ashland has a very good team. Lots of speed, a great QB,...

    It's nice to see a score like this mixed in amongst all the 50, 60, and 70 point outbursts we've seen the past couple of weeks. I can appreciate an old fashioned, cold weather defensive battle in November.

    South Warren (13-0) put on a frightening display against Owensboro, pounding the Red Devils 44-7. The Spartans got it done just like they have all year - offensively, defensively, and special teams-ively. South Oldham (12-1) put away Fern Creek 35-12 for their 12th straight win and second regional championship in the last three years. Can the Dragons’ running game put a dent in SW's stone wall defense and deliver their program the...

    The CovCath train just keeps rolling down the tracks. The Colonels (13-0) look as strong as ever after stomping out Highlands via running clock, 36-0. Pulaski County (11-2) consolidated their superiority over Southwestern this season with another tight, one score win over the Warriors. At this point, the field at Pulaski likely resembles the mud pit at a monster truck rally. That should give the Maroons at least some sort of advantage,...

    Somebody from Ashland should call up someone from Boyle County, Lexington Catholic, or whichever 3A team it was that petitioned to play up and allow Ashland to drop down and get away from JC and thank them. Maybe even drive there and give them a hug. Definitely send them a thank you card and a nice fruit basket. Outside of Ironton from the late 70's through the late 00's, no one has consistently put it on the Tomcats like Johnson Central. It...

    Absolutely. Maybe even in the first half. This team grew more from Week 1 to the region finals than any Russell team I've seen in recent memory. There's a lot to look forward to next year.

    So, so proud of the effort displayed tonight by this Russell squad. The outlook was pretty grim following the virtual no-show against Ashland. The seniors did what you expect seniors to do and stepped up to hold it all together. They've grown so much in the past two months, especially on defense. Unfortunately, they continue to struggle to put points on the board against great teams. Russell suffered two first quarter turnovers. The second...

    Johnson Central High School is the result of a consolidation of the Van Lear, Meade Memorial, Oil Springs, and Flat Gap school districts in the late 60’s. First season with a football team was 1970. From the early days of the football program through the early 2000’s, they had more losing seasons than winning seasons. Outside of a few notable years under Ed Vanhoose in the late 70’s and Bill Musick in the late 90’s through the early 00’s, there...

    These two fierce rivals are squaring off with a regional championship on the line for the third year in a row. Johnson Central (11-1) is seeking its fourth straight trip to the semifinals, while Ashland (11-1) is hoping to practice on Thanksgiving for the first time since 1990. Jim Matney’s boys have mostly dominated the Tomcats since he arrived in Paintsville back in 2004, going 13-3 against Ashland during that time. Most years, they've...

    It's hard for me to kid myself if I don't have the whole story. Now I do. I'm still taking Pikeville by three touchdowns.

    This is going to be a formidable challenge for Russell to overcome. Central is possibly the best team to visit Henry R. Evans Stadium since some of Bob Lutz's great Ironton teams from the 80’s. They don't appear to have dropped off much, if at all, since their championship years under Scroggins. This is an ‘all hands on deck, and batten down the hatches’ situation for the Red Devils. As a running quarterback, Goodall is in the same class as...

    A little something to chew on... Belfry is 37-3 at home in the playoffs since the CAM opened in 2005. Sheldon Clark was the last team to hand the Pirates a home playoff loss back in 2009. Belfry will defend its home turf with everything they've got. But will it be enough?

    With Boyle moving up to 4A, maybe Belfry can entice them to come to the PCB sometime in the near future. Otherwise, this could be the first and last time they play for quite some time.

    Even at full strength, Belfry's defense was going to have its hands full. They might have to score 60 to win this thing.

    Is this the first ever meeting between these two? It's a dream matchup. Two legendary coaches, two contrasting offensive philosophies. If only both teams were at 100%, health wise. Should be a tremendous atmosphere on Pond Creek.

    When healthy, I think Pikeville is the best team in the eastern half of 1A by at least two scores. Williamsburg has put together a great year, and that win over Hazard was one of the real eye catching scores from last Friday, but they gave up 44 points to Lynn Camp a few weeks ago. Pikeville just manhandled that same Lynn Camp squad last week in every phase. They're just rolling right now. If the Panthers overlook Williamsburg, they could be in...

    Paintsville's won four straight over Raceland decided by a touchdown or less. Not sure how to explain it, but the Tigers find a way to come out on top when it's tight.

    Raceland vs. Paintsville Beechwood shouldn't break much of a sweat, and I think Pikeville wins comfortably. Campbellesville and Crittenden County looks good on paper, but they don't have the recent history that Raceland/Paintsville does. The Rams and Tigers don't know how to play each other any other way than with great competitiveness.

    This series is so hard to get a read on. At this point, I honestly have no idea what to expect, other than a great game. There's just so much familiarity between the players and coaching staffs. It's hard for one team to get any separation from the other.

    Most people were expecting another Mayfield/Owensboro Catholic regional final. But Murray (8-4) had other plans. The Tigers rallied from a 26-0 deficit early in the second quarter to top the Aces in the second round. That win earned them a second look at Mayfield. Yay? The Cardinals (12-0) have surpassed 50 points on seven occasions this season, including a season high 63 the first time these teams met. Kent Trey Matthews ran wild in that game,...

    To the surprise of absolutely no one, the annual regional final rematch between CAL (12-0) and DeSales (11-1) is on again. This makes eight consecutive years that these two teams have met twice in the same season. In five of those eight meetings, the regular season loser turned the tables in the postseason. The Centurions have allowed a 2A low 71 points and haven't really displayed any glaring vulnerabilities this season. At this juncture, CAL...

    When these two met about a month ago, Somerset's defense wrapped itself around LCA like an anaconda and squeezed the Eagles into submission. LCA could only muster 48 yards of offense in their 35-0 loss to the Jumpers (10-2). Last week, it was LCA (9-3) that brought the suffocating defense, as they held one of the state's most productive rushing attacks to just 90 yards. The question is, have the Eagles come far enough in the past month to make...

    Glasgow's running game, Nick Mitchell in particular, has been clicking in recent weeks. Mitchell, the #2 rusher in 2A, has averaged 170 ypg and scored 16 TDs in the six weeks since their loss to Franklin-Simpson. Behind the Scotties’ (11-1) big and talented offensive line, that running game will be a formidable challenge for their regional final opponent. After losing quite a bit of offensive production from last year, Walton-Verona (10-2) has...

    The Red Devils (10-2) spoiled a potential BG/SW rematch by ridding themselves of the stranglehold that the Purples had on them. They now face the tall task of coming down from that emotional high and getting ready to do battle with the mighty Spartans of South Warren (12-0). South Warren continued to roll in the second round, posting their tenth running clock victory in twelve games. Owensboro appears to have the QB and skill people to cause the...

    As expected, the Maroons (10-2) and Warriors (10-2) found their way back to each other for another go round. The first installment was a somewhat surprising Pulaski County victory. Wiley Cain threw for 352 yards and engineered a length of the field, game winning drive in the final minutes. The last two times that these teams have met in the playoffs, the team that lost the regular season game, won the rematch.

    A challenging early season schedule sharpened the Tigers’ claws. They've been using those claws to rip through their last seven opponents. Fern Creek (8-4) has really stepped up their game on defense, surrendering just 8 ppg during this seven game win streak. That defense will be tested by the potent offense of South Oldham (11-1). The Dragons have averaged 48 points and roughly 400 yards per game since their season opening loss to CAL.
