NKY Football Playoff Preview

By Walter - Now that the regular season has concluded, let’s take a look at each first round match up for all of the Northern Kentucky teams and what my expectations are for each district. We start in 1A. The Beechwood Tigers finished with a 6-4 record but steamrolled 1A competition, shutting out both Dayton and Ludlow 56-0 and beating Bellevue by a score of 56-22. The Tigers should be expected to make another deep post season run. Here are the match ups: Bracken County (2-8) at Beechwood (6-4) Expect a running clock in this one. The Tigers shouldn’t be tested until the semi finals when they... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps Class 3A Playoff Preview

By The Scribe - Class 3A has been dominated by Central since the switch to six class football in 2007. The Yellowjackets have won five of the last six state titles, with the last three coming at the expense of Belfry. However, Class 3A is as wide open as it’s been in years, and don’t be surprised if neither Central nor Belfry reach Bowling Green. Region 1 There are some who just want to fast forward through the first two rounds of the playoffs and make the trip to Paducah to watch South Warren play Paducah Tilghman for the region title. Given the matchups, it’s a safe assumption to... Read More →


Bluegrass Area Playoff Preview

By Bluegrasscard - Bluegrass Area Playoff Preview This year the Fayette County/Bluegrass Area 6A playoffs will be a local affair. With rotation of the 'super district' this is not always the case. So the local 6A teams will get another bite at the proverbial apple as all the 6A games will be rematches from the regular season. Though the 2/3 seed games are where most look for competitive games in the first round, it is a 1/4 match-up that will be the headliner in the first round of Region 4 this year. Dunbar at Tates Creek In a rematch of the opening game of the season for both teams four... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps Class 2A Playoff Preview

By The Scribe - The Class 2A playoff race appears to be top-heavy with only a handful of teams having a legitimate shot to bring home the championship trophy. Making matters tough is the fact the 2013 playoff road will likely run through the home fields of last year’s finalists – Caldwell County and Newport Central Catholic. Region 1 Top-ranked Caldwell County (10-0) is the prohibitive favorite to come out of the west, helped by the fact they will get to play at home through the first four rounds of the playoffs. Caldwell has won 10 straight playoff games dating back to last year and 11 of... Read More →

By Walter - It is finally playoff time. District play has finished and teams are ready to get the “second season” started. Let’s take a look back at the final week of the regular season and how each team fared in their final tune up for the playoffs. Campbell County 44 Holy Cross 0 It was a dominating performance by the Camels to close out the regular season as they rolled up 374 yards of offense, while limiting the Holy Cross offense to just 95 yards. Campbell County led just 7-0 at the end of the 1st quarter on a Nate Hess fumble recovery in the end zone for a touchdown, but got things rolling in... Read More →

Inside North-Eastern Kentucky Football (11-4-13)

By Ram - The regular season is over, some area teams are preparing for their first playoff game, some are preparing for a playoff run, and some teams have already ended their season and looking forward to next season. There were some big events this week, with some coming on the field, and some off the field. I have to address the KSAA vs. Fairview. The KHSAA handed down sweeping sanctions this week against Fairview for the playing of an ineligible player. The sanctions include: Forfeiture of all 14 wins from 2012 Forfeiture of first four wins of 2013 Forfeiture of 2012 District Title Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Class 4A Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region 1 For the past three years, if you wanted to know who was going to win the region you could have just looked to who the District 2 champion was. Three years, three different teams, three titles for the even district, with Allen County-Scottsville and Franklin-Simpson advancing all the way to the state title game in 2010 & 2011 respectively. But as Bob Dylan sang, the times they are a-changin'. This year the favorite is from the (further) west district, a member of the old guard. The REALLY old guard, former statewide power Owensboro - BGP's 8th rated team in 4A. The Red... Read More →


South-Central Kentucky Football Playoff Preview

By DragonFire - South-Central Kentucky Football Playoff Preview THE FAVORITE Bowling Green (9-0) – The Purples entered the year as the heavy favorite in 5A and have done nothing whatsoever to lighten that impression. Led by a senior class that is 27 strong, they have established themselves as nothing less than the best team in the state regardless of class. You can’t talk about the Purples without starting with Mr. Football candidate Nacarius Fant. The WKU commit has amassed an impressive 1,139 yards on just 61 catches, 17 of them going for TDs. Thanks to a weather cancellation in the second... Read More →


Inside Wilderness Trace Football (11-4-13)

By thegeneral - A weekly notebook focusing on Boyle County, Danville and Mercer County, with additional info on other nearby teams: LOOKING BACK Frankfort 51, Danville 24 Danville (5-5) lost to Frankfort (8-2) Friday night in a game the Admirals thought they had to have to secure a home game in the first round of the playoffs, then found out early Saturday morning they didn’t need that game after all. The Admirals had finished in a three-way tie for the District 2A-7 title, then tied Somerset for second in the KHSAA tiebreaker points system. With all other possible tiebreakers exhausted, Danville was... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps Class 5A Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region 1 For the third straight year, the State Championship will go though Region 1. Bowling Green is looking to be the three time reigning State Champions. And, quite frankly, they could very possible win the State Championship in any class in Kentucky while carrying the flag for Kentucky High School Football. Bowling Green (9-0) has wadded though almost every thing the state has to offer with their pass heavy offense. With Nacarius Fant, what team wouldn’t be a little pass heavy. Fant has proven to be a valid candidate for Kentucky’s Mr. Football. Fant has amassed over one thousand... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps Class 1A Playoff Preview

By Ram - The usual names head the list of contenders in 1A and at the head of the pack is the Mayfield Cardinals. The Cardinals have been the season long favorite and top ranked team in 1A. Is there anyone who can keep the Cardinals from winning another title? Region 1 This is Mayfield's region and the Cardinals look to have a firm grip on walking through this region again. Mayfield had their 18 game regular season winning streak snapped with a 48-41 loss to 2A #1 Caldwell County but played very well in the loss. The Cardinals have played a challenging schedule and should be ready to go for the... Read More →


Inside the Southeastern Six Football (11-02-13)

By Les - Week 10 is now behind us, and so is regular season play. The good news for the Southeastern Six? Each team made their respective class’ playoffs. The bad news? Well, some of our teams have some tough first round match-ups, but before I touch on those games, let’s take a look back on Week 10’s results, along with naming this week’s Player of the Week. Southeastern Six Player of the Week Jake Coppock, Corbin Coppock turned in another stellar performance during the Redhounds’ 27-0 win over Knox Central.
