Warren East Raiders

By DragonFire - The 2012 season was an historic one for the Warren East Raiders. They set the school mark for wins in a row at 13. They completed not only the first undefeated regular season in school history, but also became the first school in the Warren County Public School system to ever accomplish that feat. The only black mark on the season was the resounding thud it ended in - a 58-7 drubbing by Collins in the state semifinals. The Raiders will be looking to wipe that taste out of their mouths in the 2013 season. They'll also be looking to a new head coach to lead them to their ultimate goal of... Read More →

Fairview Eagles

By Ram - Fairview It’s been proven that Fairview has a knack for finding talent walking the halls, the halls of other schools. After several years of having new found talent transfer to Fairview from out of state, it is truly hard to predict who will trot on the field for the Eagles in 2013. 2012 saw the KHSAA ruling a player ineligible, just to end with a local judge issuing an injunction allowing him to play. Will Fairview see more drama in 2013? Stay tuned. Fairview has received one transfer from Huntington West Virginia - Coach James Hopkins. Coach Hopkins was a former assistant coach at... Read More →

Pikeville Panthers

By All State Baseball - Pikeville Can Pikeville make a deep run in the playoffs in 2013? 2012 seen Pikeville go 7-6 and losing in the regional championship to Fairview 36-14. Pikeville’s main problem in the playoffs is getting past Hazard. When it comes to the playoffs, Hazard owns Pikeville. Pikeville lost 5 starters on last year’s team but return all of their offensive weapons including talented running back Chase Hall who rushed for over 1,500 yards on 177 attempts and 21 touchdowns. Pikeville also returns Quarterback Austin Charles who rushed for 379 yards on 58 attempts and 4 touchdowns, passing for 1,004... Read More →

Warren Central Dragons

By DragonFire - Over the past two years, the Dragons have established themselves as arguably one of the top 10 teams in the state regardless of class. They have played in three straight region title games, and have only one loss to a team in those three years that didn't play for a state title. Unfortunately for Warren Central, they have six losses to teams that did, and three of those losses prevented them from winning even a single region title during that time. In the last two years, the prevailing feeling on Morgantown Road is that Bowling Green prevented them from not only winning a region title, but... Read More →

Frankfort High Panthers

By CoachBuckett - The most frequent question Coach Foley and his staff are asked at Frankfort is, “Coach Can we beat Beechwood this year?” Since Coach Foley’s arrival in Frankfort they have won 7 straight District Titles, a Regional Championship and a Semi-finals appearance. But none of that matters to the Panther faithful. Is this a fair question the coaching staff should have to answer? Or have the Panther Coaching staff maximized their talent pool given the school has only 115 boys? Offense The questions the Frankfort coaching staff keep asking themselves who will step up to replace 70% of the offense... Read More →

Holmes Bulldogs

By Walter - The 2013 version of the Holmes Bulldogs will be very different from the 2012 version. In 2012, the Bulldogs finished 6-5 with huge wins over 2A state champion Newport Central Catholic, as well as 1A state semi finalist, Beechwood. Heading in to this season the Bulldogs will look to replace not only seniors, but also last year’s head coach, as Ben Nevels takes over the program in his first season as Holmes’ football head coach. “ It’s been a growing experience for both the kids and myself,” Said Coach Nevels.” Just laying the foundation of what expectations are going to be, how we’re going...

Ryle Raiders

By Walter - It was a rough 2012 season for the Ryle Raiders as they finished 3-8, with a first round playoff loss to Scott County 42-10. The Raiders closed the season on a 5 game losing streak, but the record can also be attributed to the tough schedule that Ryle played, which consisted of games against 4A state champion Highlands, 5A state runner up Cooper, 6A state semi finalist Scott Co, and national ly ranked Colerain out of Cincinnati, OH. “ 2010 we ran in to some challenges with our schedule but had a great season and then ran in to a brutal schedule in 2011 and 2012” Said Ryle head coach...

Williamsburg Yellow Jackets

By Les - Williamsburg Yellow Jackets After getting knocked off by Hazard for the second straight year in the Class A, Region 3 title game, Jerry Herron’s Williamsburg Yellow Jackets seems poised to make another run at the regional title and beyond with most of its talent returning on both sides of the ball. The Yellow Jackets posted an impressive 11-2 record in 2012 (third-best in Class A) and look to improve on that as well with nine starters returning on both sides of the ball. “We have spent all off-season getting ready for this,” Herron said. “The first thing we know that we have to do is...

Bowling Green Purples

By DragonFire - Last year the Purples featured a team that only returned four starters following their triumphant 2011 season. Everyone knew they would still put out a typically strong team, but 2012 was viewed as a window of opportunity, a time when maybe a team's best shot could knock Bowling Green off the mountaintop. The Purples responded with an emphatic "YOU MISSED." Bowling Green ran the table again to push their win streak to 30 straight wins, which included their second win in two years over vaunted St. X. That Bowling Green is the premier program in western Kentucky is a given. But the whispers... Read More →

Johnson Central Golden Eagles

By All State Baseball - Johnson Central Can Johnson Central get past the regional championship? For four straight years (2007-2011) the Johnson Central Golden Eagles have made it to the regional championship and the result has been the same, they have lost. From 2008-2011 Johnson Central has lost the regional championship to Highlands who would go on to win Class 4A State Title. 2007 Johnson Central lost the regional championship to Lincoln County, who would go on to lose in the semi-finals to eventual state champions, Highlands. The past two years, Johnson Central has lost in the second round. 2011 Johnson... Read More →

Conner Cougars

By Walter - Coming in to last season expectations were high for the Conner Cougars. Not only did they return one of the best playmakers in Northern Kentucky in Cameron Fogle, who is now at the University of Kentucky, they also returned one of the top quarterbacks in the country for the class of 2014 in 6’3 Drew Barker, who is now also committed to the University of Kentucky. The Cougars finished 9-3 and had their season ended prematurely in the second round of the playoffs by Franklin County in a 62-59 shootout. Heading in to this season expectations will once again be high for the Hebron squad as... Read More →

Russell Red Devils

By Ram - Russell Russell Fans, don’t run away, the Red Devils will need you this year. Most close to the program have dreaded the 2013 football season for several years knowing that this would be the year Russell would have the most trouble in many many years. After several down years, this will be rock bottom for the Red Devils, and hopefully the start of a rebuilding process that will reap future rewards. After graduating 16 players, the Red Devils are left with a thin returning roster of 32 players. Not a great number for a school that is Class 2A by enrollment, but playing in Class 3A....

Breathitt County Bobcats

Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds

By Walter - The 2012 season was a memorable one for the Thoroughbreds of Newport Central Catholic. After a sluggish 2 -4 start, the Breds won 9 straight, en route to the Class 2A state championship with a win over Caldwell County 30-26. Heading in to the 2013 season, Newcath will be looking for their third state championship in 4 years.

Raceland Rams

By Ram - Raceland Can Raceland win the big game? That is the question most Ram Fans are asking. A fixture in the playoffs, and a storied program of success in North-Eastern Kentucky, Raceland seems to have a problem in the Big Game. And, in the playoffs, all the games are big. Raceland returns all the tools necessary to end the season in Bowling Green. But, can they? Raceland’s strength is going to be their senior class, ladened with talent and experience. The Rams return four offensive linemen: Nevan Johnson, Mac Boggs, Austin Manis, and Alec Risner. Size, strength, and experience will make... Read More →
