Beechwood Tiger Playoff Preview

By EyeOfTheTiger - One of the most successful programs in the state enters the 2013 playoffs with a team different from any other before it. Beechwood has 11 state championship trophies and this team will be trying a different approach in its efforts to get number 12. Beechwood has always been a run first team. That was the way the game was played and Beechwood could do it better than anyone. Coach Yeagle and his Tigers proved that in the 1990's by filling the trophy case with those state championship trophies. As the 2000's arrived though, football changed. The passing game became more than just a... 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 itís been in years, and donít 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, itís 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 yearís finalists Ė 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 →

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.

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 →
