Football Coaches' Clinics in the 21st Century

By ChiefSmoke - When I was a little kid, a recurring event on the calendar every winter was that my Dad would be gone a few days to THE clinic. I think the first clinics were the Kodak Coach of the Year Clinics that he attended in the early 70s. Usually, he attended that clinic and one that would be hosted by the University of Kentucky during their spring practice. When I was a young coach, I was excited to finally attend THE clinic which was held annually at the Galt House in Louisville. Many of the big names in college football would speak at that clinic. And, in my Dad's era, if you were not... Read More →

The responsibilities of a HS Head Coach

By PurplePride92 - It’s become a recurring theme these days that HS Head Coaches aren’t doing enough to get kids athletic scholarships. That got me thinking. What exactly are the responsibilities of a HS Head Coach of any sport and where does getting kids athletic scholarships fall in priority of these responsibilities? I think there are some complex answers to this question and I’ll start with some of my answers. IMO there isn’t a HS Head Coach they won’t help his kids get an athletic scholarship if that kid shows the ability to play at the next level. However, I think the responsibility of getting a...

BluegrassPreps.com 10th Region Week in Review 2-5-18

By mcpapa - The victory train keeps rolling (mostly) for the region's top dogs. It's February, and the district tournaments are right around the corner. The Eagles are the new Super Bowl champions - will a bird represent the 10th at Rupp Arena in a few weeks? Here's a quick peek at last week. 1. Clark County (22-3, 10-1 region).

By 15th Region - Overview: Ten weeks are in the books and district tournaments begin in just fourteen days across the state.

Bluegrasspreps.com 2018 - Inside the 8th Region 2-5-18

By ColonelMike - We're down to the final two weeks of the 2017-18 regular season, and the 8th region favorite is.... LOL! Right now, we are looking at a region tournament that will likely feature at least five teams sporting 20+ wins, and probably two of the remaining three will have 18-20 wins. Considering that the "favorite" hasn't won the event since Oldham County took the title in 2012, it might be just as well for all involved that nobody wears the role of undisputed favorite today. As for who should be considered the favorite...reasonable people can surely disagree this year. If you... Read More →

By ApolloFan98 - With just 2 weeks left in the regular season, things at the top of the region have tightened up a little bit. As usual, the 9th district looks like it is going to be a dog fight.
