5A Notebook (8/22): Colonels, Colonels, Everywhere!

By JDEaston - With the first week of the season in the books, we have already learned quite a bit about a few teams in class 5A. First off, even with what Bowling Green lost to graduation, they are still the team to beat. However this season, the gap between the Purples and everyone else may not be as large as it was last season, that remains to be seen. When thinking of teams that present the best challenge to the Purples think of the Colonels. Take your pick between the Christian County and Covington Catholic Colonels as the top threat to the Purples this season, which will likely be an ongoing... Read More →

1A Notebook Week 1 - More Questions than Answers

By Voice of Reason - It is just one week in so we can't expect to know what all these teams have. But we were hoping to start getting a few questions answered. Instead, there might be more questions than we had before the opening games. Looking at 1A pre-season, we could split the top ten in half. The top five were more answers than questions. Each of the top five have a lot of talent returning and were solidly in place. The bottom five, that's where the questions are. So what answers did we get from the teams that played games in week 0? Week 0 Review Nothing significant to report from the top. The #1... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook (8/21): A Sharp Opening Week for a Loaded Class

By ATLCat - “Well That Escalated Quickly” Let’s face it, we all knew Class 2A was stacked in 2017, but we all looked at the Week 0 matchups and figured a the Top 10 would take a few casualties. There were athletic 6A teams, there were last years’ Semi-Finalists from other classes, there were larger schools with multiple Mr. Football candidates, there was even an Out of State powerhouse. Instead the Top 10 rattled off a 9-1 combined record, the lone loss by Somerset in a game they led most of the night. The Top 5 was especially stellar. Both Danville and DeSales looked very impressive against highly... Read More →

Class 6A Notebook 8/21: No surprises in the top 3, lots of movement elsewhere.

By thsrocks - #9 Butler High School played their way into the BGP 6A top ten with a resounding defeat of Bullitt East. The 53-0 margin was surprising as the Chargers did not lose by more than 25 points in 2016. The 53 points scored by the Bears was their high point total since a 9/21/2012 drubbing of Fairdale 57-7. The Butler roster stands at 73 and does not include any freshmen. The Bears’ Gary Wheeler, Jr took the reins in 2013 from Scott Carmony. Wheeler is now 27-22 and coming off a 4-7 slate last season. Butler competes in what many believe to be the toughest district in the Commonwealth. Their... Read More → Football Rankings (8/21)

By Ram - Class 1A While the Class' two top teams took Week 0 off, the rest of the class saw plenty of action.

Class 4A Notebook (8/21): Chaos in the Middle

By DragonFire - When the rankings were being compiled this preseason, there were few absolutes in Class 4A. Johnson Central was the clear #1, that much we knew, and obviously will remain so after opening with a bye week. Wayne County appeared to be a solid #2, and they backed that up with a 45-7 pasting of 5A Woodford County. Collins acquitted themselves as well with a 38-7 victory over Madison Southern, that saw JR Lucas account for over 400 yards of offense through the air and on the ground in addition to four scores. After that, things got…. hazy. And after the first week, things are…. well, still... Read More →
