10th Region Rankings & Weekly Review (12-14-15)

By Randy Parker - Two weeks of basketball are behind us and parity is the word being thrown around most often in the 10th Region. That parity is reflected in these rankings, which have undergone significant changes, with very little separation between several schools. #1 - Paris (3-1) The Greyhounds began Week 2 with a thrilling 58-56 home win over 40th District favorite Montgomery County on Tuesday night. Junior guard Ryan Davis had but one field goal in the entire contest and it came as the buzzer sounded, breaking a 56-56 tie. All Region forward Koebe Garrard paced Paris with 15 points and 11...

3rd Region Preview (A little Late)

By MountaineerMan - Last year Muhlenberg County defeated Owensboro Catholic in the region final to advance to Diddle. This year will prove to be just as exciting in the 3rd Region as many as 5 teams has a real shot to advance to NKY in the middle of March to compete for a state title. Here's my preview of the teams in the 3rd Region. 15. Trinity (Whitesville) -- With just 8 players (4 High School and 4 Junior High) Coach Jim Little has his work cut out for him.

2nd Regions Rankings after Week 2

By Jesse James - With only two weeks of the season under our belt and not very many major region matchups thus far, there is still a lot of speculation within the rankings. With some interesting region matchups ahead in the next week, the picture will become much clearer. However, there are still a few shakeups from the preseason rankings based on a few surprises already. 1. Henderson County (1-1); Preseason Rank - #1 Only two games with no region matchups so far, but Henderson County will remain the favorite until someone proves otherwise. A huge win over Apollo and an out of state loss doesn't give... Read More →


PCRO's 10th Region Top 25 Players of the Last 25 Years

By LCDAWGS19 - After nearly 2 months of emails/phone calls/texts/research, we are finally ready to reveal our Top 25 players in the 10th Region over the last 25 years. I want to thank our "selection committee" for their cooperation in this. I have worn out communication with them throughout this process. I spoke with media members and people who have watched extensive amounts of basketball over this time period. The process was simple: rank 1-25 the best players in the region from the 1989-90 season through last season. Then I assigned 25 points for a 1st place vote, 24 for 2nd and so on. The number...

50 Greatest Programs in Kentucky History: #7-1

In this article we are looking at the top seven programs and they'll be released over the course of the day. As was mentioned in each of the previous threads, this is based on a formula that awards teams a certain amount of points for playoff wins, district championships, appearances in state championship games, and state titles. These rankings begin with the 1959 season since that was the first year the KHSAA sponsored a playoff. In case of ties, the team with the most state... Read More →


Mayfield 2049

By theguru - In a land far far away near the start of the 21st Century Mayfield KY High School dominated little school KY high school football. The Cardinals even beat one school, Beechwood Academy (formerly Beechwood High School) 33 times straight which includes one time before the turn of the century in what is known as the Two Point Conversion game. Back in the early part of the Century the Mayfield fans became hard to tolerate but the rest of the peasant football teams/fans dismissed them because they were only a Class A team. In 2015 Mayfield moved up to 2A and beat Newport Central Catholic in... Read More →

2015/16 Girls 6th Region Rankings Week 1

By Jesse James - There is not much change to the preseason rankings for the 6th region this week as teams kicked off their seasons. In the top four, Bullitt East moved up a spot sliding Mercy back one after Mercy went 1-2 against a tough opening week schedule. Valley climbed several spots after beating Moore and a close defeat at the hands of Bullitt Central. Moore dropped a few spots after starting off 0-3 and seemingly struggling to put points on the board. When the new coach gets his system in place, the Lady Mustangs could easily climb back up the ladder. Most everyone else stayed close to where they... Read More →

3rd Region Rankings (Week1)

By ApolloFan98 - With graduation and the mass exodus of top players from the 3rd in the offseason, early season rankings should be taken with a grain of salt. We now have one week of action under our belt. Here is how they stack up after 1 week of action... 1.Meade County(3-0, SAME) - The Waves have opened the season by proving they belong as preseason favorites to win the region. They collected big region wins over Ohio County & Owensboro Catholic, as well as an out of area win vs Marion County. Meade returned 4 of 5 starters from their region runner up team and have added key transfer James Baker to the... Read More →


6th Region Rankings (Week 1)

By GoHardITP - 6th Region Rankings (12/7/15) 1) Bullitt East (3-0)- A very tough opener against Warren Central was a close game that will end up being a character builder for this team. Down very late in the game with their backs against the wall this veteran team responded with a furious rally that defines how tough they really are. The next two games against Collins and Elliott County were not as difficult as they continue to be the clear favorite in the region as they enter Week #2. 2) Fern Creek (4-0)- We learned this team has depth and their rotation goes well beyond 10 players. Good thing... Read More →


50 Greatest Programs in Kentucky History: #50-26

By gchs_uk9 - Over the last few years I've devised a formula for ranking high school football programs historically. A couple years ago there was a thread on the best programs to never win a title and this will piggy-back off of that thread. In a nutshell, my formula awards teams a certain amount of points for playoff wins, district championships, appearances in state championship games, and state titles. The formula certainly isn't perfect and you may disagree with the rankings. That's fine! These rankings begin with the 1959 season since that was the first year the KHSAA sponsored a playoff. If...

The little blonde headed kid in the back of the church

By ChiefSmoke - When Stephanie and I were married back on May 30, 1992, we had a videographer record the event, including video facing the guests sitting in the sanctuary. In the back, you can see this little blonde headed boy, pretty restless, standing up in his dad's lap, I guess trying to see.... or, trying to leave the wedding! About 7 years later, that same little boy and his dad drove to Maysville. That little boy, his dad, Dustin Grutza, Ty Sargent & myself, all went to this quarterback camp in southern Ohio. None of these guys were in HS yet. As it turned out, this little boy, Ty, & Dustin all... Read More →
