Inside North-Eastern Kentucky Football (9-22-13)

By Ram - The Week In Review: Raceland 42 Coal Grove (OH) 33 The Ram’s dominate offensive and defensive line was tested this week facing a team with a very similar set of linemen. Coach Grove has a large group of linemen and Raceland’s linemen were up to the test. Coal Grove proved to be a formidable opponent for the Rams and the Rams will be better prepared for the playoffs because of this game. Ashland 42 Ironton (OH) 20 The Tomcats are proving to be a team on the move. It also looks like the deciding factor is Quinten Baker. Every game that Baker has rushed for 200 yards has been a big...

Inside the Southeastern Six Football (9-22-13)

By Les - Week Three is now finished, and the big question is — do we know any more about our teams in the Southeastern Six? I say yes. Corbin remained unbeaten at 5-0 by blitzing South Laurel, 53-0, on the road. This is the same Cardinal team that dropped a 36-7 decision to Wayne County in Week One. So what does the 53-point win for Corbin mean? I’m not sure, but the Redhounds will have this week off to prepare for Week 6’s big match-up with Wayne County. Bell County picked up a HUGE and convincing win over Knox Central on the road while Harlan County found itself down 36-0 to Johnson Central... Read More →

Boyle County may be a work in progress, but progress has been good so far

By thegeneral - Dog bites man. The sun sets in the west. Boyle County is pretty good. Perhaps none of those things qualifies as news, but the latter item might at least be a least a little surprising to those who had written this off as a rebuilding season for the Rebels. A month ago, Boyle had more question marks than “The Riddler’s” green bodysuit. The defense was made up almost entirely of first-year starters, the offensive and defensive lines had been reconstructed, and the sheer volume of youth and inexperience left many wondering what kind of year it might be at Boyle.

Beechwood Tiger Insider - Week Four

By EyeOfTheTiger - Week Three Recap It was a good week on the football field in Tiger land. The varsity took on the Holy Cross Indians and posted a solid win, 34-7.

Sophomore QB Kyle Fieger was the offensive star versus Holy Cross, throwing 4 TD passes and running for another TD. The defense was tested again by the run as Holy Cross put their offense into the hands of outstanding RB Jalen Beal. The Tigers did a good job of containing the fast and... Read More →

Getting a College Football Scholarship - Part 1

By Ram - Getting a College Football Scholarship - Part 1 This is part one of a, more then likely, four part series on college recruiting and scholarship acquisition. This is a topic that is widely misunderstood and complicated. Every year, I know of several players who could have received money for college though football but could not because they were not educated on the recruiting process. It has been asked, debated, and partially answered on Bluegrasspreps many times over the years - what needs to be done to get a player recruited by a college. Many parents, and player, think their high... Read More →

Corbin's formula for success

By Les - Coming into the season, nobody knew what to expect from the Corbin Redhounds. Steve Jewell’s squad was coming off its first losing season since 1995, and many preseason publications were tagging the Redhounds to finish third in their respective district behind Wayne County and Bell County. And, this is why — Wayne County returned most of its talent from last season’s school-best 10-win season, while the Bobcats, well, are the Bobcats — they don’t rebuild, they just reload. And for Corbin, the Redhounds just graduated their leading rusher (Matt Jewell) and leading receiver (Josh Jewell) off... Read More →
