2A/3A Game of the Week: 2A #3 Mayfield vs. 3A #2 Corbin at Austin Peay

By DevilMayCare - As non-district play begins to wind down, there are still some exciting inter-class heavyweight battles left on the schedule, and Mayfield vs. Corbin certainly fits that bill. These two programs are rich in tradition, have large, passionate fan bases, and currently have expectations of hoisting some major hardware at Kroger Field in early December. But, first things first. The Cardinals and Redhounds have some business to tend to at Austin Peay University this Friday. This will be the third year in a row that these two teams have met, with Mayfield winning in 2015 (28-14) & 2016 (35-34).... Read More →


1A Game of the Week: 1A #2 Kentucky Country Day vs. Lexington Christian

5A Notebook (9/14) The Colonels topple the Kings

By JDEaston - With most teams having four games under their belts at this point in the season, several teams are really starting to stand out as the front runner’s for the class 5A title. The 5A field this season is much more competitive than in recent memory with a handful of teams all having a shot to take home the trophy. In other words, don’t expect a 70-22 type of championship game as witnessed last season when the Purples walked their way to another state championship. Covington Catholic and Bowling Green currently stand out as the top two teams to challenge for the championship this season,... Read More →


The Swami's Class 2A Picks (9/13)

By ATLCat - 1. Christian Academy- Louisville at Newport Central Catholic It's a Top 10 showdown but the Breds are fading as they run. CAL is coming in off another big win, the post game is always fun. Harris is grinding for all the tough meters, With a shutdown D, noone CAL is the Class' leader. The Breds will fight hard, but don't have the closing kick. A four TD deficit leaves their fans feeling sick. PREDICTION: CAL 2. Danville at 3A Waggener Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (9/13): 4A Rights the Ship

By DragonFire - After the bloodletting that was the third week in 4A football, it was nice to see the script flip last week for the top of our rankings. Whereas a mere three of the top ten teams won the week before, this past week seven of the top ten teams won, and at least the other three losses were to ranked opponents. Johnson Central has continued to look a little more vulnerable than expected, as for the third straight game they allowed 20+ points to their opponent. That has now surpassed the total games the defense allowed that all of last season. But despite the relatively close scoreline,... Read More →


Louisville Power Rankings 9-13-17

By Bert - 1. Trinity (4-0) – Trinity took on it first KY opponent in the Male Bulldogs. Trinity's Defense looked incredible as they shut out the Bulldogs but the Offense struggled in the red zone. This week's game is up in the air as Hurricane Irma may prevent Champagnat Catholic (FL) from making it to Louisville. 2. St. Xavier (3-0) – The Fairdale Bulldogs were not expected to be able to give X much competition and they didn't as the Tigers beat Fairdale 56-14. This week X will face a much better competitor in Louisville Central for this week's Game of the Week. 3. Male (3-1) – A loss... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/11)

By Ram - Class 1A All eyes were on the defending champions and the Beechwood Tigers put on a show. Beechwood downed 3A Corbin in one of Kentucky's premier early season small school clashes to secure their spot as Class 1A's top ranked team. The Tigers now set their sights on another #1 team in the form of 5A Covington Catholic. Hazard faced defeat for the first time as they fell to 2A Somerset.

Beechwood vs. 5A #1... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 9/11- Who Blinks First?

By ATLCat - The Firm Five Lexington Christian Academy was seemingly starting to slip a little in the eyes of some. The Eagles had not surrounded themselves with the toughest schedule of the Top 5 teams in Class 2A, and had a couple games where they seemingly allowed lesser competition to hang around before hammering the nail in the 2nd Half to pull away. Lexington Catholic was supposed to be the game that told us if LCA was going to keep pace with the front runners of the class. Lexington Christian Academy hushed the doubters in resounding fashion. The Eagles crushed the 3A Knights 56-36 and may have... Read More →


Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 9/10/17

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2017 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 3 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, it is that time in the season where I admit I am pretty dog-gone long-winded on these rankings and I realize folks have very busy lives and don’t have time every week to get through all the items listed in this thread, so we’ll audible formations into a “Popcorn N Coke Version” and “Meat & Potato’s 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. Mayfield 2A (4-0): Win 49-27 vs 6A McCracken County... Read More →


2A Game of the Week: #5 Lexington Christian Academy vs. #8 Walton Verona

By DevilMayCare - In its brief existence (since 2008), Walton Verona's football program has grown steadily, taking the necessary small steps it takes to lay a strong foundation for long term success. Coach Jeff Barth is the man behind the Bearcats emergence in recent years. After John McMillen left following a respectable 4-6 inaugural season, Barth took over and has guided Walton Verona to a 63-35 record in his 8+ years at the helm. Included in that run is five seasons of at least eight wins. This year's squad looks like they're well on their way to surpassing that total. The Bearcats currently sit at... Read More →
