Class 6A Notebook 9/4: Seven unbeatens remain and real challenges for top teams

By thsrocks - Class 6A is down to 7 unbeaten squads after three weeks of play. Trinity, Saint Xavier, Pleasure Ridge Park, Male, Scott County, Simon Kenton, and unranked Ohio County. One of these teams will go down as Male and Trinity get it on. Scott County will have their hands full with Moeller (OH).

The masses were correct in choosing #12 Ryle over Boone County; #9 Butler over 4A Western; #7 Pleasure Ridge Park over Eastern; #6... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 9/4- Kick, Kick, Hooray for Danville!

By ATLCat - Hazlett Has It: Ads Kick From Down Town for Bragging Rights in Title Town Showdown The consensus entering Friday's clash between #2 Danville and 3A Boyle County was that we were in store for a close game. I don't think anyone expected it to be as evenly matched as it ended up playing out, as both teams traded blows equally playing to a 7-7 tie late into the 4th Quarter. In a game that was defined by excellent Defense and missed opportunities, an unlikely hero emerged, err correct that, arrived. Nathan Hazlett did not arrive to the stadium until Halftime. Due to the game being... Read More →

By Bac2369 - This battle could be legendary! Week 3 presents to us on paper a battle of heavyweight champions. Those heavyweights are #1 Beechwood and #1 Corbin. Both are the top team in their respective class. It's not often to see a match up like this. Taking a look and trying to see if these two teams have crossed paths before and my search came up with nothing. So you diehard Beechwood and diehard Corbin fans can help us out. I do know one thing for sure though. if someone does find something or knows something we can almost guarantee that both of them were not number 1 when they played each... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/4)

By Ram - Class 1A The ranks of the undefeated are slowly starting to shrink. Last week Paintsville and Bishop Brossart tasted defeat for the first time. This week expect even more flawless marks to fall by the wayside with a heavy slate. Beechwood narrowly survived a sloppy field and a stout Somerset defense. The weather may improve for Beechwood, but so will their opponent as 3A's top team is on deck. Hazard will take on Somerset, looking to avoid the fate that Beechwood escaped. 1. Beechwood vs. 3A #1 Corbin 2. Hazard vs. 2A #10 Somerset 3. Kentucky Country Day vs. 2A Carroll County 4.... Read More →

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2017 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 2 Edition WHOA NELLIE!!! HURRICANE HARVEY rolled into the Commonwealth and dumped substantial rain on Kentucky especially the I-65 corridor with Bowling Green receiving 8 inches of rain.

By Bert - 1. Trinity (3-0) – A 38-30 victory over Moeller rounds out Trinity three games against out of state powers. The Rock's undefeated record against those three solidified Trinity's #1 ranking.

5A Notebook (8/30): The passing of the Torch

By JDEaston - For the first time since I have been writing articles, we have a new number 1 in class 5A. Bowling Green was defeated for the first time since 2015, the Purples ran off 28 straight wins during that time. While the Purples don’t drop far in the rankings, they must still pass the torch to our new number one, Covington Catholic. Covington Catholic has been very impressive thus far with a win over 6A Ryle and complete domination over 3A Lexington Catholic. Last week’s notebook touched on the fact that Bowling Green’s win over 6A North Hardin wasn’t as impressive as the final score indicated,... Read More →
