Dixie Heights Colonels 2014 Football Preview

By Walter - Two years ago when Dave Brossart took over the Dixie Heights football program, there were a lot of questions surrounding his team with the departure of long time head coach Tom Spritzky and a young group returning. While the first year was challenging, the Colonels finished 3-8, Brossart thinks that adversity helped mature his team and give them momentum after a heart breaking 57-50 loss in the first round of the playoffs to Henry Clay. "Two years ago I inherited a bunch of sophomores (when I took over for Coach Spritzky)" Said Coach Brossart. " Those kids have really developed over the... Read More →

Boyle County Rebels 2014 Football Preview

By PurplePride92 - The Boyle County Rebels 2013 season didn't go the way the Rebels would have liked it to have gone despite posting an 11-1 record.

Raceland Rams 2014 Football Preview

By Ram - Raceland 2014 “The greatest team in school history”. That is the phrase used to describe the Raceland team of 2013. After winning their 19th District Championship, the Eastern Kentucky Conference Championship, the first ever Regional Championship and making their first ever Semi-Final appearance the Raceland Rams of 2013 deserves, at least, consideration as the best team in school history. But, in 2014 a lot has changed for the Rams, but, yet again, a lot will be the same. Gone is the biggest and best offensive line and defensive line in school history. Gone are three year starters at... Read More →

By LongTimeReader - Review of 2013 The St. X Tigers head into their second year under Coach Will Wolford.

The Tigers finished the year with a record of 7-5, finished third in the “Super District”, and was knocked out in the second round by the Male Bulldogs. The 2013 Tigers will be a team of inconsistency. While they had some great moments such as beating Manual in the final seconds and knocking off Cincinnati St. Xavier in the final regular...

Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds 2014 Football Preview

By Lawnboy13 - When it comes to football up on the “hill”, since 2000 when they hit the field in the heat of July and strap on the pads and helmets, NewCath footballers expect to be playing for a state championship in the cold of December. There is plenty of evidence to support this; NewCath has made the State Championship game 9 times since 2000 with four titles (2005-06-10-12) and Runner-Up 5 times (00-01-07-08-13). Also, since 2000 the Breds have compiled a 157-43 record, with 2009 (7-6) as the only season without recording 10 plus wins. The 2014 Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds will still... Read More →

Bowling Green Purples 2014 Football Preview

By Purple Nation - We have all heard the statement, "Don't let the past dictate your future." Though we can allow the past to teach us, motivate us and challenge us - the past cannot be relied upon to guarantee where we land in the future. No prep team in the Commonwealth has had a brighter "past" in the last 36 months than the Bowling Green Purples; but what about their future? Most of us are aware of the winning streak of 44 wins. What you may not be aware of is the dedicated coaching staff, the committed Senior classes and the daily grind that the kids put in to see this dream of the 3Peat to become a... Read More →

Warren Central Dragons 2014 Football Preview

By DragonFire - After a strong run in the first four years under coach Mike Rogers, Warren Central took a step back in 2013.
