Russell notches first win over Ironton since 1977

By DevilMayCare - Bell bottoms, Disco, Star Wars, the Son of Sam..... Ahh the memories. Actually, between you and me, I wasn't even born yet. The year was 1977. Russell's Ivan McGlone and Ironton's Bob Lutz were still young(ish) men, in the early stages of building great programs. The final score that year was 23-14 in favor of the Red Devils. It would be the last time Russell would defeat its cross river rival for 38 years. After '77, Ironton would win the next eleven in a row before the series went on hiatus beginning in 1993. The two schools renewed the series in 2009 with Ironton winning six in a... Read More →

By ATLCat - 10. Raceland (1A, 2-1)- Storms forced the Rams to play Saturday but there was no slwoing down the raining of points against East Carter. Greenup County has been a pleasant surprise and should be a better test. 9. Russell (3A, 2-0)- The statement win of the week? Russell going to Ironton, OH and stealing one from the Mighty Tigers on Saturday night. The historic win came at a cost as the Devils are banged up entering a huge matchup this week. 8. Pikeville (1A, 2-1)- The next two teams flip flop as last week's GOTW lived up to the hype in an Overtime thriller. Pikeville learned the value... Read More →

Louisville Area Power Rankings 8-31-15

By Bert - 1) Trinity High School (2-0, defeated Brentwood Academy 31-13) – While not as convincing of a victory as the week before against Ensworth, still a solid victory over a traditional Tennessee power. The real test for who is #1 will be in two weeks against Male. Next week, Lafayette 2) Male High School (2-0, defeated Ballard 45-7) – Some will say after such a victory over a Louisville Area Top Ten would justify being #1 .

Class 1A Football - Everything you need to know - 8-30-15

By Voice of Reason - The #1 ranked team in 1A finally made their debut this week. The Beechwood Tigers opened in style with a 48-22 win over the #7 team in 2A, Lloyd Juggernauts.

The Beechwood freshman Logan Castleman intercepted a pass and ran it in for a score. That was followed just a minute later with a 65 yard interception return for a TD by Beechwood standout Brett Slusher. Slusher went for 5 TD's on the night adding 3 receiving... Read More →

Never fear other contenders, BG vs Owensboro is only 2 weeks away. Inaugural Jayvon Quarles - Week 1... Read More →
