Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 8-26

By ATLCat - 1. Corbin Redhounds (3A, 2-0)- The Redhounds looked good by taking care of business against the defending 2A Champions and QB Chase Estep is proving the drop off after Cameron Sizemore is not nearly what people expected. 2. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 0-1)- The Eagles took a tough loss to Capital, WV. They will try to rebound against Henry Clay. The good news is Joe Jackson is back and as good as we remember. 3. Belfry Pirates (3A, 0-1)- Belfry had a tough hand to work against Friday missing their veteran QB and turning it over 4 times against a very good foe, but the Pirates... Read More →


1A Notebook 8/22/2018 - Groundwork

By Voice of Reason - The opening week of games in 1A laid the groundwork for the season to come. The top ranked teams successfully took on larger class opponents and set the stage for tougher games this week. There no upsets as the top 8 teams all either posted wins or had an open week. The action this week was in spots 9, 10 and 11. All three of those teams took losses but #10 Paris and #11 Louisville Holy Cross has strong showings against solid 4A opposition. On the other hand, #9 Frankfort had a serious stumble against 3A Thomas Nelson who only won 3 games in 2017. Those results shook up the lower part of the... Read More →


Mr. Football Watchlist (8/22)

By DevilMayCare - Quarterbacks Zach Thornton, Danville Week 0: 5 of 11 for 54 yards ; 11 rushes for 76 yards and a TD in a 40-0 win over Woodford County Stock: <> Thornton didn't have a huge game, statistically, but that's partially because the Ads didn't need him to versus a woefully overmatched Woodford County. He'll have an opportunity for a showcase game this coming Saturday versus Corbin, where Danville will almost certainly need Thornton to step it up a notch or two. Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (8/21): Three Kings

By DragonFire - I hope you enjoy the trio of Johnson Central, Franklin-Simpson, and Ashland at the top of the 4A rankings. Week 1 did nothing to discourage the notion that they are the elite of the elite in the class. The order may (or may not) change among those three this year, but Week 1 only reinforced the perception they’re not going to get run down from behind. With Johnson Central off to start the season as per usual, Franklin-Simpson carried the banner for 4A. The defending state champion and potential co-favorite met an Elizabethtown squad that had thrashed them 55-23 via a running clock to... Read More →



Northern Kentucky Power Rankings: 08-21-18

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (1-0) – With sophomore Caleb Jacob getting the starting nod at QB, the Colonels came out swinging on Friday against 6A Ryle, beating the Raiders 40-7. Caleb was an impressive 12 for 15 passing for 294yds and 2 TDs, connecting with Johnny Schuh and D1 commit Jack Coldiron for TD receptions. Zack Coburn and Duncan Summe also look to be favorite receivers this season. Senior RB Casey McGinness started off his 3rd year starting for Cov Cath with a 188yd game on the ground and 4 TDs. On the defensive side, the Colonels have moved junior Notre Dame commit Michael Mayer from... Read More →


6A Notebook: Blood in the Water!

By Bac2369 - Blood in the Water The first week, or Week 0 of the High School Football season is in the books. The 6A Class would have big questions to be answered and have a few teams smelling the blood in water like a shark. One of those questions answered was, ‘Could Trinity keep the 30 game win streak going?’ Another question would be, ‘Why are teams smelling blood in the water?’ The #1 Trinity Shamrocks would open their season on the road against a tough Carmel (IN) team. Trinity took an early lead in the 1st quarter, but Carmel stormed back with 10 unanswered points late in the 2nd quarter.... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 8/20- Come at Me Bro!

By ATLCat - What an excellent week for Class 2A! After proving itself as perhaps pound for pound the toughest class last year, the 2018 season started with the top three teams all making a statement in a big way. DeSales Serves Notice No one in the State would doubt that DeSales had a football team capable of putting up a fight against one of Kentucky's elite large school programs. The Colts are perennially one of the Top 20 overall teams in Kentucky and have made a tradition of knocking off other 6A programs in Jefferson County. With that said, very few people outside of fans of the Colts'... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Rankings (8/20)

By Ram - Class 1A For the seven teams in Class 1A's Top 8 who were in action, Week 1 was ripe with victory and great starts. Nearly every team overwhelmed their opponent and got 2018 off to a roaring start. Week 2 will be ripe with challenges. Five different teams will face ranked foes, headlined by defending champion Beechwood taking the field for the first time against Lloyd. Perhaps the most anticipated match-up will come as Raceland challenges one of 4A's top teams in a huge rivalry game. 1. Beechwood vs. 2A #8 Lloyd 2. Pikeville vs. 2A #10 Lexington Christian (8/25) 3. Raceland at 4A #3... Read More →


5A Notebook: Colonels roll, Purples bowl, Spartans in control

By DevilMayCare - As opening weekends go, Week 0 in 5A was rather uneventful. That's not to say that there weren't some noteworthy performances and close calls. But the opening weekend of the season can usually be counted on to deliver some unexpected surprises (I'm looking at you 6A!). Relative to its neighbors to the north, 5A was downright pedestrian this past week - not that that's a bad thing. There was much to digest from the week that was - a couple of heavyweights gave all indications that they're not going to budge from their lofty perches; another brand name program showed enough resolve to overcome...

BluegrassPreps Central Kentucky Power Rankings 8-19 - Week 1

By PurplePride92 - The season is underway and right off the bat there is some moving and shaking in this week's Central Kentucky Power Rankings. There were strong performances by multiple teams and players. Some familiar names had their usual performances and some new names emerged onto the scene. With no further ado, here are the Week 1 Power Rankings for Central Kentucky. Top Ten: 1. Scott County-(6A)- Scott County began the season in dominating fashion with a 56-13 win over North Bullitt. They ascend to the top of the rankings as a result of that performance. Next game: home vs. Lafayette 8/24 ... Read More →


Louisville Power Rankings - August 20th

By TheDeuce - 1. 6A Male (1-0) The Bulldogs traveled across the river to Floyds Knobs to take on Floyd Central (IN) in their 2018 opener and posted a 41-3 victory. Led by senior QB Garrett Dennis, who was 7/10 for 100 yards and two scores, the Bulldogs dominated FC throughout. On top of Dennis' performance, Male rushed for 305 yards on the evening, and Izayah Cummings added 78 receiving yards and two more scores. Male returns home this week to take on Ballard (0-1). 2. 6A Trinity (0-1) As is often the case, Trinity started their season with an out of state opponent, Carmel (IN), who defeated the...

BluegrassPreps - Western Kentucky Power Ranking - Week 1 - 8/19/18

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2018 Western Kentucky Power Rankings - Week 1 Edition Well I hope you had a great opening weekend to the 2018 Kentucky High School football season and hope you got to go see some of your favorite teams lace em up one more time! We have gone from I think this and that to I saw this and that from THIS years squads. The top story line this week is anticipation. It is a fickle thing. Even if you say you don't know what to expect from your team, subconsciously you do and likely it is a continuation, to some degree, of last season minus the graduated 2017 seniors. Well the...

Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 8-19

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central (4A, 0-0)- The Eagles jump into action with a Pre-Season Top 5 team from West Virginia when they welcome the athletic Capital Cougars squad. All reports are that RB Joe Jackson is back and better than ever after he turned heads in a scrimmage against Beechwood. 2. Corbin Redhounds (3A, 1-0)- Corbin was not necessarily in mid-season form against Whitley County, but they also left no doubt they are for real once more. Corbin will take on Defending 2A Champion Danville. 3. Belfry Pirates (3A, 0-0)- Belfry will open against one of the best big schools in West Virginia... Read More →


3A Notebook: Room at the Top for Two?

By gchs_uk9 - Boyle and Central Impressive in Opening Night Victories Much of the preseason talk in Class 3A has been about Boyle County and their potential for winning a second consecutive state championship. With offensive superstars like Reese Smith, Landen Bartleson, and Reed Lanter returning the excitement is certainly warranted. However, with heavy losses on both the offensive and defensive lines there is measured caution for the Rebels this early in the season. Boyle opened the 2018 campaign on Saturday afternoon with a 35-21 victory over 6A #10 Ballard in the Little Caesars Fort Harrod... Read More →


BluegrassPreps.com 2018 Mr. Football Watchlist

By DevilMayCare - A list of true Mr. Football candidates could probably be whittled down to just a handful of players with a realistic shot at winning the award. But, in an effort to expand the scope of exposure to all classes and all corners of the state, we've decided to stretch that handful of candidates into a broader watchlist. You'll find a wide range of players listed here… - Dual threat and pocket passing Quarterbacks - Skill players posting astronomical numbers - Big guys doing the dirty work in the trenches Read More →
