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.

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 →

Veteran Grey doing his best to bridge the gap between Danville's past, future

By thegeneral - And now, a word about Jawan Grey. Admiral. You could describe Grey as a talented player, a hard worker, one of the leaders of his team. But in a season in which Danville is attempting to redefine itself, perhaps the best way to describe him is to say that no one has defined what it means to be an Admiral quite like Grey. Grey, a senior running back-defensive back, isn’t the only player who has done good things at Danville this season, though he has been one of the most productive players for the Admirals. And he probably isn’t the only player who has a grasp of the history and... Read More →
