1A Notebook 10/3 - Larger Classes Move Aside

By Voice of Reason - It was a banner week for the 1A top ten. The only loss suffered by a top ten team came at the hands of another 1A top ten team. With the impressive wins by the 1A powerhouses, we are going to push back the districts review and talk about the big week in 1A and the top players in this class. It is always interesting to me when people assume that a school from a larger class should automatically win over a 1A team just because the school is bigger. It has been proven time and time again that 1A schools are very capable of beating larger class opponents and this week is another example of... Read More →


Northern Kentucky Power Rankings: 10-03-18

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (6-0) – No action this week. The Colonels face IN-3A Bishop Chatard (6-1) in Indianapolis this Friday. 2) 5A Highlands (5-1) – No action this week. The Bluebirds will take on 5A Dixie Heights (0-7) in Edgewood this Thursday. 3) 1A Beechwood (4-2) – Beechwood looks to have sloughed off their two losses by quickly putting together two wins in a row, the latest being a 28-21 victory over 6A Simon Kenton (5-2). QB Cam Hergott led the offense on Friday night, going 13-24 passing for 178yds and 2 TDs, and rushing for another 71yds. RB Logan Castleman was also a... Read More →


Louisville Power Rankings 10/2

By TheDeuce - 1. 6A Male (7-0) The Bulldogs just keep rolling. With yet another shutout and another blowout, Male defeated 6A Pleasure Ridge Park 49-0 last week. They take their talents on the road this week, visiting 6A Bryan Station in Lexington. 2. 2A DeSales (6-0) Another 6A team, and another hard fought win. DeSales faced their third 6A opponent of the year, and again came away with the victory against North Hardin, 27-24. This week, it's the game they've likely had circled on their calendar since the summer, as they take on crosstown 2A rival CAL, a battle for the top spot in 2A. 3. 2A... Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (10/2): Taking Stock of the District Races

By DragonFire - For the second straight week, the vast majority of 4A knocked out the competition, so let’s take stock of where we’re at, district by district. District 1 This district has played out so much like last season, it’s eerie. Logan County is unbeaten. Hopkinsville is 1-5, fresh off a two score loss to Madisonville. Madisonville is 5-2, with losses to Owensboro and Union County. All of these things were true in 2017 as well. Madisonville currently heads up the district, with a 3-0 mark and only their road trip to Logan County on the 12th ahead of them in district play. A win there will... Read More →



Class 2A Notebook 10/1- Off or On Display

By ATLCat - Of BYES and WINS As the leaves change and the District Schedule gets deeper, you start to see teams take strategically set BYE weeks to rest up for the stretch run. Often times this week off will coincide with Fall break giving the kids and coaching staff a much deserved reprieve from the grind of the season. Of the Top 15 teams in Class 2A, five of those teams will choose to take a Friday off this week including Mayfield, Glasgow, LCA, Walton-Verona, and Murray. With so many of the top teams not scheduled to play, along with the mandatory nature that District Scheduling brings, it is... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/1)

By Ram - Class 1A As folks began wondering if the gap was closing on Beechwood at the top of Class 1A, the Tigers decided to make a statement by knocking off a ranked 6A Simon Kenton in a big signature victory. Another team making their presence known was Raceland, specifically the Raceland defense, which won a meat grinder game against Somerset. Pikeville also got a huge win by outlasting Hazard. The Bulldogs must regroup against a Phelps team desperate to shock the state. Two huge games also stand out at the back of the Top 10. Holy Cross and Lynn Camp each have monster district clashes that they... Read More →


6A Notebook (10/1): Mind Boggling

By Bac2369 - Yet again, Class 6A continues to be wild and puzzling. District play has started and still the same puzzling and mind boggling things have happened. If your wondering what I’m talking about, then I will just get right into it. The #2 Scott County Cardinals hosted the Henry Clay Blue Devils for a district matchup. Many thought this would be a running clock win for Scott County, but man, were they fooled. Henry Clay would came out and shocked the 6A world with not just a win, but a convincing 51-27 victory. DJ Vanhorn and Raymond Jackson had big games for Henry Clay. DJ Vanhorn threw for 225... Read More →


Western Kentucky Power Rankings - September 30, 2018

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2018 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 7 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, ALL Teams in the Top 20 win in Week 7 with the exception of 3 teams (all outside the Top 10) who all lose to more highly ranked teams. And all games are pretty much BLOWOUTS with the exception of Madisonville’s 14-0 win over depleted Hopkinsville. Is this just that time of year where teams play lesser district foes or did we just hit a sweet spot for our teams? Maybe a little of both! Here’s to a great ending to the regular season and a successful District Campaign to all... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (9/30): The Calm Before the Storm

By DevilMayCare - Like most weekends this season in 5A, this past Friday night was rather uneventful. Save for Owensboro/Christian County (which I'll touch on below), there was no movement in the top 10. Covington Catholic, Highlands, and Pulaski County all had the week off. And the teams that did play, won their games by an average margin of 40 points. Week after week, this has largely been the case. Some of the top teams have faced common opponents, but not one another. And a few of them have seen their schedules littered with “soft touches” in recent weeks. There are some mysteries to be solved in regards... Read More →


3A Notebook: Making Time For Those You Love

By gchs_uk9 - On August 17, 1984 I went to my first ever high school football game. At least I think so - my mother says me and my sister (we're twins) were three when we first went, so I'm guessing that date and game is close to correct. I obviously don't recall any details from that night but I've been told and have seen pictures that I wore a plastic football helmet and wouldn't take it off while my sister was in a cheerleading uniform. That night started a family tradition that in some ways continues to this very day. On Friday nights, our family went to watch football. At nearly every Garrard... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 9-29

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 5-1)- The Golden Eagles flew in a gentle breeze by dusting off East Carter. Greenup County is not a pushover, but Johnson Central should have no issue. 2. Ashland Tomcats (4A, 7-0)- The Tomcats get the slight bump thanks to the value of their win over Raceland looking better and better each week. After pounding Boyd County expect the same result against East Carter. 3. Belfry Pirates (3A, 5-1)- Belfry had little resistance from Floyd Central and now step back out of the District for the always stout Knights from Cabell Midland, WV. Pirates will get... Read More →


Northern Kentucky Power Rankings: 09-27-18

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (5-0) – The Colonels had to dig down and show their mettle after the 1st quarter against Beechwood, and they faced a similar situation, heading into halftime tied at 14 with OH-DIII St. Francis DeSales (3-2) before pulling ahead in the second half to win 35-14 up in Columbus. RB Casey McGinness had another great performance, rushing for 194yds and 2 TDs, and QB Caleb Jacob was 8-17 passing for 88yds and 1 TD. WR Jack Coldiron led the receiving corps with 56yds receiving and 1 TD, and the other TD’s were scored on short runs by Jacob and RB Daniel Felix. McGinness also... Read More →

1A Notebook 9/25 - Prospecting

By Voice of Reason - This week looks like a good week to do some sifting and sorting on our top teams and try to see what each team’s prospects are in the post season. District play will be in full force next week. This week the top teams have put some out of district challenges on their schedules. Let’s size up the top teams in 1A, this week’s challenge, where they stand and where it looks like they are headed. 1. Beechwood – This week the top ranked Tigers are at 6A #8 Simon Kenton. Any time a 1A team steps into the 6A top ten for a game it is a big challenge. Beechwood went toe to toe with Simon Kenton last... Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (9/25): A Double Rainbow

By DragonFire - I'm fond of using the double rainbow expression for something you're unlikely to see. In 4A, no teams losing in the top ten is essentially like seeing a double rainbow. It is super, super rare, but there it was last week, in all its glory. The result of that was the exact same top ten this week as the week before. In fact, the teams in the top ten didn't just win, they dominated. Nine games decided by an average of 33.77 PPG, which included a game called early in #8 Moore's 27-0 win over Valley. Only #7 Franklin County's district tilt at Shelby County provided any drama for a top... Read More →
