Class 5A Notebook (10/11/16) Upset Alert!

By JDEaston - While two of the top three teams in the top ten tried to track down the illusive “OPEN” and force them to play, Bowling Green and Greenwood were both unsuccessful in those endeavors. For Bowling Green it was the first week since the start of the season that they did not post a W in the win/loss column. The rest of the top 10-15 teams in class 5A took care of business last week, with every team with the exception of Highlands all posting wins with a margin of victory of 20 points or more. Former number ten Highlands traveled to Dixie Heights on Friday in what was predicted to be the game of... Read More →

By Bert - Thanks to our Sponsor WBKI TV Louisville The CW. Get in the game with Game On WBKI Saturdays @ 8p. Tv station: WBKI TV Twitter: @ItsGame_On 58543 1. Trinity (8-0) – The game against Eastern wasn’t much as expected. Next week against Seneca won’t be much better. 2. Male (6-1) – Male had the week off but still stays at #2. This weekend will be the featured game of the week versus St. Xavier. As mentioned last week, X and Male somewhat look at each other as their runner up archrivals. The emotion going into this game will come second only to the quality of these two teams. 3. St.... Read More →


Bluegrassprep's Football Rankings (10/10)

By Ram - Class 1A The game that raised the eyebrows of most pundits over the weekend was Kentucky Country Day's surprising lopsided victory over District foe Louisville Holy Cross. In other action of note Paintsville easily handled Fairview strengthening their standing in the Class 1A pecking order. This week there will be no match-ups between ranked foes, but a pair of critical District games will highlight the docket. Bishop Brossart is suddenly surging and will square up a Paris team that nearly handed Nicholas County their first loss. In Southern Kentucky, Williamsburg will get a firm test from... Read More →

BluegrassPreps - Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 10/9/16

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2016 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 7 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week: We have 2 this week: 1. It is the popular BYE time of the season. What are the Top 3 things teams need to focus on when going through the BYE week: A. Heal Your Players! You can’t win in the playoffs without a majority of your team near 100%. B.

Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-9

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 7-0)- Greenup was no issue for Matney's bunch who seem to look better and better each week. With lowly Rowan County next expect JC to heal some wounds. 2. Belfry Pirates (3A, 6-1)- Speaking of teams healing up, Belfry did just that against Lawrence County but still rolled with ease. The Pirates host a foe from outside Cleveland and may get their legs stretched a bit this week. 3. Corbin Redhounds (3A, 6-1)- Corbin took the week off and now gear up for Bell County. In the past few years this would be "Must See" football, but instead a running clock... Read More →


3A Notebook: Breaking Down the District Races

By gchs_uk9 - This week's Notebook is being written in Pensacola, Florida on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Beach time is always good for contemplation and so this week seems like a good time to contemplate the district races in Class 3A. For each district, we will designate a favorite, a threat, and a surprise (a team capable of winning a first round road playoff game). District 1 Favorite: Caldwell County (5-3) After a slow start that saw the Tigers lose three straight, Coach David Barnes' team has rattled off five consecutive wins, three of those against district opponents. Once again the... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (10/5/16) Game of the season!

By JDEaston - Outside of one game, everything pretty much went as scripted last week in class 5A. But man, what a game it was. The Owensboro Red Devils traveled to Christian County to take on the #3 ranked Colonels in what ended in a double overtime win in favor of the Red Devils. Owensboro has spent the majority of this season ranked in the top 5. It wasn’t until a loss to Owensboro Catholic that some began to wonder if the Red Devils were for real or just a solid 5A team. Then came Bowling Green the following week, we all knew how that would turn out. But the final score still left some people wondering,... Read More →

By Bert - Thanks to our Sponsor WBKI TV Louisville The CW. Get in the game with Game On WBKI Saturdays @ 8p. Tv station: WBKI TV Twitter: @ItsGame_On 58426 1. Trinity (7-0) – Trinity entered their game against X as the favorite but not a heavy favorite. The left the game making people reconsider. Their 35-13 beating of St.X was quite impressive and further cements them as the #1 team. Next week’s game against Eastern should be ugly. The following week versus Seneca will be worse.

Class 4A Notebook (10/4): Resurgent Rockets

By DragonFire - In 2000, Rockcastle County won their first region championship. After years upon years of running headlong into dominant programs from Bell County, to Danville, to Boyle County, the light finally shined on Rockcastle County and they broke through with a 7-6 win over Sheldon Clark. They were summarily dismissed by a machine in Highlands, but the Rockets followed that up with arguably the finest teams in the program’s history, running to 14-1 and 13-2 records in 2001 & 2002, but having the misfortune to (once again) running into Boyle County both years, who swatted away their dreams of a...

1A Notebook 10/4 - Districts Review

By Voice of Reason - Last week's results were true to what was expected. Our top four teams won in lopsided fashion. Game of the week was Pikeville versus Hazard and that outcome was true to our rankings with Pikeville winning a hard fought battle beind an outstanding performance by their QB Wyatt Battaille.

District 1 – Crittenden County, Fulton City, Fulton County, Russellville This district features current... Read More →
