Lexington Catholic Knights

By Bluegrasscard - Lexington Catholic Knights Coach – Bill Letton (8th season), Record: 68-24 2012 – 11-3, District Champion, Region Champion, lost to Highlands in state semi-finals The Lexington Catholic Knights come into the 2013 season with a lot of new starters and a goal to build upon the program’s first ever back to back regional championships. Many of the 2012 seniors were three year starters so there will be a lot of new players in the starting line-up, especially on defense and offensive line.

By GOINGFOR2 - Tates Creek looks to get back to its proud football tradition of winning District Titles and Playoff football. Being around the Tates Creek Program over the summer and offseason there is a newfound buzz and energy coming from the program. You see it, hear it, and can definitely feel the positive vibes. How can that be, when Tates Creek has come off of back to back losing seasons at 3-8, then 4-7 last season ending in a bad loss to St. x in the Playoffs???? Start with the 23 returning Seniors. To go along with that is a JR. Class of the same size. Tates Creek has been a youth... Read More →

Greenwood Gators

By DragonFire - You might not be aware of it, but Greenwood turned in one of their best seasons in school history last season. The Gators opened up the season 5-0, their best start and longest winning streak in school history. Their 8 wins were the most ever in the regular season for the program, and second most in a complete season despite falling in their first playoff game. The Gators averaged more points per game than any season before. But when you play in the shadow of a team like Bowling Green, a team that you haven't beaten in 21 all-time meetings, you tend to get overlooked. The Gators are... Read More →

Hazard Bulldogs

By All State Baseball - Hazard Can Hazard make it back to Bowling Green? Hazard was throttled in the semi-finals last year by Fairview 40-6. The big question going around Hazard fans is how are the Bulldogs gonna do after losing the talent that made their offense go. They hope that 2013 is the year for the Bulldogs to bring home the state championship but being realistic they know it’s gonna be very difficult to do so. Hazard lost 7 starters on offense and defense. Those 7 starters just happened to be Hazard’s heart and soul. Hazard does return some offensive talent that seen playing time last year. Kody...

Franklin County Flyers

By CoachBuckett - Even though the Franklin County Flyers last season had one of the most electrifying offenses in the state scored 56.6 points a game. The Flyers loss in the Regional Final is not the place they wanted to end their season. Coach Tracy said he felt the lost the battle in the trenches against Cooper. The Flyers where lead last season by Mr. Everything Ryan Timmons and QB Logan Woodside. Both young men have moved on to play D-1 football. So that leaves this year’s team with a lot of unanswered questions on the offensive side of the ball. A lot of folks have been asking who replaces Timmons.... Read More →

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.
