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 →


Inside NKY Football 9/16

By Walter - Another week of football has passed and we are now one week closer to the middle of the season and the start of big district games for certain teams. Let’s take a look back at week 3 action: Beechwood 34 Holy Cross 7 No surprise here as the Beechwood Tigers improved to 2-1 on the season. Despite the injury bug hitting the Ft Mitchell squad, they have seen some of the young guys step up and fill the void on both sides of the ball. Sophomore QB Kyle Fieger was 10-for-19 for 125 yards and 4 touchdowns through the air, while another sophomore, Brett Slusher, had a 68 yard kickoff return for... Read More →


Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (9-16-13)

By DragonFire - Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (9-16-13) -Bowling Green (3-0) knocked off Owensboro for the sixth time in a row by a score of 41-7. The Purples have now outscored the Devils 134-10 in their last three games. The usual suspects were involved. Blue Tisdale rushed for 4 touchdowns on just 15 carries. Hayes was 17/19 for 216 yards and 2 TDs. His favorite target was as usual Nacarius Fant who reeled in 9 receptions for 140 yards. Consider it a minor upset that Owensboro kept Fant out of the end zone. -South Warren (4-0) was a bit of a repeat as well, thrashing previously... Read More →



Hazard, Somerset battle back and forth, Hazard wins 32-28

By All State Baseball - Friday September 13th seen the Briar Jumpers of Somerset come into Hazard to take on the Hazard Bulldogs with both teams hoping to get the win but that would be the case for one team, Hazard. As the Bulldogs defeated the Briar Jumpers 32-28 in a very entertaining game. Somerset would be the only team to score in the first quarter, which came on a 12 yard touchdown pass from Castle Hatcher to Cam Cheuvront, Alex Franklin would come on and make the extra point kick, Somerset would take a 7-0 lead into the second quarter. Brandon Jones got Hazard off to a good start in the second quarter... Read More →


Inside Wilderness Trace Football (9-16-13)

By thegeneral - A weekly notebook focusing on Boyle County, Danville and Mercer County, with occasional info on other nearby teams: LOOKING BACK Boyle County 30, Anderson County 27 Boyle (4-0) held off Anderson (3-0) to win a thrilling game between two teams ranked in the top five in their respective classes who were meeting for the first time since 1998. The Rebels won despite losing two leads and having the ball for only 57 seconds in the fourth quarter, and only after Anderson kicker Joe Rose missed a 23-yard field-goal attempt with two seconds remaining that would have tied the game. Josiah... Read More →


It's still Option Football

By CoachBuckett - Over the years football coaches have always tried to find ways to get an advantage on their opponents. Coaches have spent countless hours with a pencil and paper creating the next great play, formation, or offensive or defensive schemes to win the next football game. There was a time in this great game of football everyone want to be the next great wishbone team. At one time the wishbone offense was thought of as one of the most innovated offenses in its time. The wishbone goes back to the 1950’s. Although a ton of credit goes to the Texas Longhorns who some would argue made the wishbone... Read More →

Bluegrass Area Update - week 4

By Bluegrasscard - Bluegrass Teams Update - Week 4 The Knights find their running game – again Last year when the Lexington Catholic Knights found themselves behind in two critical games against their in-district rival Boyle County it was the running game that came through and saved the day. At the start of 2013 it looked the running game was again put on the back shelf with mediocre results against the Bowling Green Purples and St. X Tigers. But in the last two weeks the Knights have re-discovered the running game. The Knights had 268 yards running against 6A Lafayette and 236 yards... Read More →


Saint Xavier Insider- Week 4

By AvidTiger - The Saint Xavier Tigers defeated the Fairdale Bulldogs 50-0 on Friday evening to improve their record to 3-1. They now travel to Cincinnati this Friday to face the Moeller Crusaders(3-0) who beat the Tigers last season 34-27 on their home turf en route to a state championship in Cincinnati. Offense Last week the Tigers looked as they should against the Fairdale defense. Walker scored two douchdowns on 5 carries and the starters only played 2 possessions. Nagle remains the starting QB, though he didn't attempt a pass this week so who knows if improvement was made. Defense While not... Read More →


Inside the Southeastern Six Football (9-15-13)

By Les - Week Three is now official, and we’ve got one team left undefeated in the Southeastern Six — the Corbin Redhounds. Corbin handled Danville with ease, and is off to its best start since 2009 when Steve Jewell’s Redhounds opened with a 5-0 mark. The Redhounds are much-improved, I’m just hesitant to put them at the top spot of the Southeastern Six rankings just yet. Jewell’s squad’s first four opponents have a combined record of 2-13. Their upcoming game against Wayne County in a couple of weeks will allow me to gauge Corbin a bit better, but make no doubt about it, this team has... Read More →


Inside North-Eastern Kentucky Football (9-14-13)

By Ram - The Week in Review: Raceland 55 Greenup County 18 Yep, after their first win since 2010, Greenup County came into this game fired up and confident. But, the size and experience of the Rams was just too much for the Musketeers. Raceland’s offensive/defensive line gave a dominate performance. Greenup County scored several times early on big plays then Raceland’s experience took over while the Rams racked up 480 yards of offense. South Point 23 Boyd County 19 The Pointers scored late in the fourth quarter to come from behind and spoil Boyd County’s plan for the first win of the... Read More →

Trigg County, Caldwell County to debut 139 Bowl Trophy Friday

By The Scribe - Only 20 miles separate Cadiz and Princeton and the county schools located there – Trigg County and Caldwell County. As a result, the schools represent the longest continuous series for each other on the football field – with games played between Trigg and Caldwell every year back to 1954. Caldwell County leads the all-time series 37-22-1, but Trigg County has won four of five and eight of the last 11 games in the series. When the teams meet Friday night, they will be playing once again for bragging rights and for the first time, a traveling trophy. The game has been renamed the... Read More →


South-Central Kentucky Football - Top 5 Running Backs So Far

By DragonFire - South-Central Kentucky Football - Top 5 Running Backs So Far A quick look at where we stand for the best runners in the South-Central Kentucky Area. 1) Blue Tisdale, Sr., Bowling Green – 30 Rushes, 222 Yards (7.4 YPC), 1 Touchdown. 5 Receptions, 111 Yards, 1 Touchdown. – The most talented back in the area running behind the most talented line. It’s really not fair to the teams he squares off against. Tisdale lost a chance to boost his stats when Bowling Green’s second scheduled game against Bryan Station was rained out, but is still averaging north of 100 yards per game and boasts a...
