BluegrassPreps Class 6A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region 1: (District 1 vs. District 4) McCracken County (7-3) basically won the district title and the #1 seed for the playoffs two weeks ago. Even though McCracken County last played against Muhlenberg County, most knew this game would be a mismatch. They got a week off before the playoffs start to rest and get the injured healed up for what they hope is a state title run. McCracken County has put up a total of 311 points on the season and averaging 31.1 points per game. Quarterback Elijah Wheat is a big part of the success, throwing for close to 1400 yards and 15 touchdowns. Franklin... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 1A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - REGION 1 Region 1 is shaping up a lot like last year. Campbellsville and Crittenden County have been solidly ranked at #6 and #7 in the 1A top ten all year. They opened the season there and lived up to their billing all season. Each team has one quality loss on the season. These two teams are the strong favorites to get to a rematch of last year’s regional final. Crittenden County should have no trouble with Caverna in round 1. From there the Rockets will face the winner of Bethlehem and Fulton County. The Fulton County Pilots have been one of the feel good stories in 1A this season.... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/29)

By Ram - Class 1A At first glance, one would see that in the final week of the season there was not a single Top 10 team in Class 1A who took a loss and assume it was a pretty quiet end of the Regular Season. In fact, several teams were actually challenged and firmly in competitive games that were not decided until the 4th Quarter. Beechwood will end the year ranked #1, yet the Tigers were pushed by 2A Newport Central Catholic. Three other teams in the Top 10 - Hazard, Raceland, and Campbellsville, all won by single score margins. Don't expect any dramatics in Round 1 from the Top 10. The playoff... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Lexington/Central Kentucky Area Power Rankings 10-25-18

By PurplePride92 - As we wind down to the end of the season the chance for movement continues to get more slim each week. George Rogers Clark has exited the top ten and Franklin County has joined the ranks of the top ten this week. Other than that the teams remain the same with a little bit of adjusting due to Henry Clay losing their starting quarterback and clearly being a whole new team without him. As we enter the last week of the regular season there arenít many intriguing matchups and most teams are focusing on team health instead of team success in this final week of the regular. Letís jump right in. ... Read More →

One more week of regular season action. Most of the 1A top ten will be facing larger class opponents as they prepare for the games that will end seasons. Here is how the final casting went last week. In the role of District 6 #1 seed … The Paintsville Tigers. Game of the week in 1A lived up to its billing. It turned into a defensive slugfest. Paintsville made a second quarter 10 yard touchdown pass from Jake Hyden to Karsten Poe stand up for... Read More → Mr. Football Watchlist (10/24)

By DevilMayCare - Quarterbacks Beau Buchanan, Bowling Green (7-2, ranked #5 in 5A) Week 9: South Warren's defense pressured and frustrated Buchanan all night long in Bowling Green's 38-12 loss to the Spartans, and it's reflected in his stat line - 9 of 23 for 84 yards with a TD and 2 ints. Season to date: 151 of 259 for 1,695 yards and 18 TDs with 6 ints. Stock: DOWN Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (10/23): The Favorites Are Who We Thought They Were

By DragonFire - Johnson Central and Franklin-Simpson have spent the year ranked #1 and #2. Ashland has spent the entire year ranked #3 despite being unbeaten, while the two ahead suffered losses in the first four weeks of the year. With apologies to the rest of the west, we long ago figured out that Franklin-Simpson should go completely unchallenged en route to a third straight title game appearance. But who would be expected to face them, the Johnson Central/Ashland question, that remained to be answered. Thereís a pretty clear answer now. #1 Johnson Central had homefield advantage, and leveraged... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Rankings (10/22)

By Ram - Class 1A The very best television shows and movies will save the most dramatic plot twist for the end for dramatic emphasis. When Paintsville shocked Raceland last week 6-0, it became the cliff hanger that made an already stellar eastern semi-state just a bit more dramatic. Raceland now need a win over rival 3A Russell to regain their posture heading into November. Another eastern Kentucky district was decided when Lynn Camp saw their undefeated dreams come crashing to the tune of the 72 points scored by Williamsburg. Expect a pretty light workload in the season finale. Beechwood is the... Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (10/21): Spartans usurp district crown from Purples

By DevilMayCare - After weeks of anticipation for the “Battle of Bowling Green”, the night finally came and went. It started out rather uneventful. But by game's end, the outcome proved incredibly eventful for the victors. The two teams were ranked #2 and #3 all season, though with each passing week more and more folks believed the order should have been reversed. Each team had a stellar quarterback. Each team had a high level, blue chip recruit. Talent was plentiful on both sides, but one team found an edge and rode it to victory. South Warren (9-0) leaned on its typically stout defense and Cameron... Read More →
