Class 4A Football Notebook (9/20): Moving Week

By DragonFire - No, not last week, though there was some movement, but this week will be moving week. After weeks of playing other classes, we finally get to see almost every team mix it up with someone else in Class 4A, , and that includes a pair of top 10 matchups from District 4. The marquee game will be #6 Shelby County at #4 Franklin County. Franklin County was more or less expected to do well, starting the year at #6 and moving up slowly behind their 5-0 record and 43 points per game offensive scoring output. They come in off a strong victory over 5A #8 Anderson County, 33-30. Shelby... Read More →

3A Notebook - Holding Serve

By gchs_uk9 - Seven of Top Eight Win, Other is Idle It probably would have been a surprise to see one of the top eight in last week's Class 3A BGP rankings fall, but with an interesting schedule filled with some potential landmines it was at least worth monitoring to see the outcome of each game. There would be little suspense as the seven victorious teams won by an average of almost five touchdowns (Central did not play). Boyle County and Belfry, rated numbers one and two, respectively, had the most impressive wins. Boyle County (5-0) took down Class 4A #9 Collins 48-14, marking their fourth... Read More →

Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 9-20-15

By ATLCat - 10. Pikeville (1A, 3-2)- Panthers welcome a step down in competition after taking it on the chin at Belfry. South Floyd will act as tribute. 9. Bell County (3A, 4-1)- Bobcats continue to roll along after obliterating Whitley County. Humfleet is putting up huge numbers and will use the BYE to get an oil change after going over 3000 miles. 8. Corbin (3A, 3-2)- Hounds fault valiantly but came up short against Southwestern. The final test of their 3 game gauntlet may be the toughest as they must challenge 2A powerhouse Mayfield. 7. North Laurel (5A, 5-0)- Jags remain undefeated with... Read More →

Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 09/20/15

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2015 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 4 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, we are at the point of the season where the grind of the season has set in on most teams (especially teams that have played a decent schedule). Injuries are a part of the game. The teams that deal with them or minimize them the best are clearly ahead of the competition. And we are either at District games or 1 Week from District games. So let’s get on it! Popcorn N Coke Top 10 Version – Week 4: 1. South Warren 4A (5-0): Win 21-0 vs 6A North Hardin 2. Bowling Green 5A... Read More →

The Lexington/Central Kentucky Power Rankings – Sept. 20 Sponsored by Jess-105.9

By Bluegrasscard - The Lexington/Central Kentucky Power Rankings – Sept. 20 Sponsored by Jess-105.9 The Rankings 10) Henry Clay (6A / 3 – 1) Since losing to St. X in the Bluegrass Bowl the Blue Devils are on a three game winning streak that includes a 50 to 26 win over 4A Knox Central at Knox Central Friday night. Senior Joquise Buford returned to the line-up against Tates Creek and had 321on 34 carries. Along with senior RB Austin Bledsoe the Blue Devils seem to have a very potent backfield. Next up is Lafayette in a game will add some clarity to the 6A situation in Central Kentucky. 9)... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps Louisville Area Power Rankings 9-19-15

By Bert - 1) Male High School (5-0, defeated Seneca 63-0) – No real surprise on this victory. Next week versus Butler should be a similar story. 2) Trinity High School (4-1, defeated by PRP 44-0) – The victory is not a surprise but the margin of victory is. PRP was playing well enough that many thought they should have been able to score on Trinity and prevent a few TD’s by Trinity. Next week versus Jeffersontown should be a pretty boring game. 3) St. Xavier High School (3-1, defeated by Highlands 37-6) – X gets back to winning by soundly beating Highlands. Next week is PRP which X should... Read More →

1A Noteboook 9-14-15 - Shake it up Week?

By Voice of Reason - The top 1A schools like to schedule up in their pre-district games. This week shows that with some of our top ranked teams facing very stiff challengers this week. Is this the week that shakes up the 1A rankings? At the head of the list of tough games is top ranked Beechwood facing neighborhood rival 5A Covington Catholic. Despite the tough start for Covington Catholic, this will certainly be Beechwood's biggest challenge of the season to date. Covington Catholic took 3A #4 Lexington Catholic down to the wire, losing by one point when the Colonels were not able to convert on a two point... Read More →

Class 4A Football Notebook (9/14): The Great Debate

By DragonFire - The great debate, of course, is who should be at the top – Johnson Central or South Warren? Johnson Central was the preseason #1 , and even in other rankings was elevated above the Spartans to begin the year. The Golden Eagles have opened up 2-0, including a more dominating than the final 42-28 win over Lexington Catholic, currently the #4 team in 3A. That game saw Johnson Central rack up 441 yards on the ground without gaining a single one through the air. But they’ve been hampered in their defense of the top spot by a bye week out of the gate and a second bye week due to their opponent... Read More →

Louisville Area Power Rankings 9-14-15

By Bert - 1) Male High School (4-0, defeated Trinity 42-13) – It is said when you take a shot at the king, you better not miss. Well, Male did just that to former number one Trinity. Very impressive win for Male and they rightly take the number one spot. Next week Male takes on winless Seneca. 2) Trinity High School (3-1, defeated by Male 42-13) – After being smacked in the mouth like they did, some may have thought Trinity should have fallen further but with X losing also, Trinity will only fall to number 2. Next week Trinity will play PRP who had an impressive win over John Hardin. 3) St.... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Rankings 9-14-15

By Ram - Only one team in Class 1A lost last Friday, and as a result the top 10 remains unchanged from 1-6. Beechwood remains #1 once again, followed by Paintsville and Pikeville at #2 and #3 respectively. Russellville remains #4 and Raceland holds steady at the #5 position, with Campbellsville at #6 . Pairs bumps up to #7 as Fairview falls 1 spot to #8 after a loss last week to Madeira (OH). Hazard at #9 , and Bethlehem at #1 0 round out top 10. DeSales bumps Mayfield out of the #1 spot this week in Class 2A. Mayfield only slips slightly to #2 . Owensboro Catholic retains #3 . Moving up to... Read More →

2A Notebook: All The Pretty Horses

By ATLCat - Mayfield Can't Tame The Mustangs For the 2nd consecutive year the Mayfield Cardinals went to overtime with 6A McCracken County, and for the 2nd consecutive year when the dust settled it was the Mustangs who came out on top. The biggest cause for alarm for the Cardinals was their inability in the passing game. Mayfield completed a mere 7/23 for 55 yards and squandered Trajon Bright's 233 yard rushing performance. The Cardinal secondary was abused for 281 passing yards and another 165 on the ground. Though this would not remotely resemble a "bad" loss, it does bring into question... Read More →

6A Notebook 9/13/15 - Are you Buying or Selling

By CoachBuckett - The dust is starting to settle and we are finding more and more out each week about the 6A teams across the state of Kentucky. We are seeing the usual teams hanging around the Bluegrass Preps top 10. But the question is are they just hanging out or are they ready to stake claim to the prize. I know some of these teams still have some questions to be answered. So I have posed a few that are swirling in the minds of many 6A fans across the state. Trinity Shamrocks are 3-1 on the season with a pair of impressive wins over two out of state powers. This past Friday they fell to Male giving up... Read More →

Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 09/13/15

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2015 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 3 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, I am admittedly long-winded on these rankings and I realize folks have busy lives and don’t have time every week to get through all the items listed in this thread, so I’ve decided to provide a “Popcorn N Coke Version” and “Meat & Potatoes Version” so you can get what you want and move on in the time available to you. Popcorn N Coke Top 10 Version – Week 3: 1. South Warren 4A (4-0): Win 24-3 vs 6A Central Hardin 2. Bowling Green 5A (3-1): Win 17-14 vs 5A Owensboro... Read More →
