3A/4A Game of the Week: 3A #1 Belfry vs. 4A #3 Johnson Central

By DevilMayCare - We've all heard of the irresistible force paradox, right? It poses the conundrum, what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Of course, there's really no answer, because, well… it's a paradox. Have any words ever been more appropriate for describing the participants in a football game than “unstoppable force” and ”immovable object” in regards to Belfry and Johnson Central? Those terms aptly fit the defending 3A and 4A state champions to a tee. Both teams are big, strong, physical and tenacious. Neither team gives much ground, yet both teams always seem to be moving...

By JDEaston - This week many football fans across the state will finally be able to take in a long awaited game as the the Spartans of South Warren make the short trek into town to take on the Bowling Green Purples, the first installment in what will likely be a long term rivalry.

Class 4A Notebook (10/19): A Calm Week

By DragonFire - This week provided one of the rarest sights in 4A this season – almost every single team in the top ten won. Nine teams out of the top ten won their games, many of them handily. Only two games featured margins of less than ten points, and that came in spots 9 & 10. It’s a seldom-seen week of breathing easily for the favorites of 4A. With that, we’ll begin with the close games. #9 Allen County-Scottsville began the year on a tear, crushing weaker opponents in Hart County and Barren County before completing fourth quarter comebacks against pre-decline Greenwood and 2A ranked Glasgow. ...

1A Notebook 10/17 - Chicken or the Egg?

By Voice of Reason - We will do a review of last week's action and look ahead to this Friday's key games, but before we do that let's talk about scheduling and strength of schedule. This subject was brought up by some posters in discussing the Beechwood / Ludlow game. There were comments made about Beechwood's scheduling of big schools and it was even commented that they really aren't a 1A school because they play so many games against big schools. So let's talk schedules. The Chicken or the Egg? How should you schedule if you are or want to be a state title contender in 1A? I think most everyone would... Read More →

Louisville Power Rankings 10-17-17

By Bert - 1. Trinity (9-0) – Same story last week as the week before, Trinity easily beats another team. This time Seneca 42-0. Next week will be Ballard and the story will mostly be the same. 2. St. Xavier (7-1) – X pretty much cemented its place as the number 2 team in the Louisville Power Rankings and possibly the state as a whole with a very solid shut out win (27-0) over number 3 Male. Things get a bit easier as they welcome Butler this week. 3. Male (7-2) – Not the best showing for Male last week as the Bulldogs could not put a point on the board. Male get its swagger back with a... Read More →

Who is the best QB in Northern Kentucky football history?

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - Bob DeMoss - Dayton '45 - Purdue Boilermakers Bob DeMoss was, to the best of my knowledge, the first D1 quarterback to come out of Northern Kentucky. He was born and raised in Dayton, and played for the Greendevils during their ’41, ’42, ’43, and ’44 football seasons as starting quarterback, kicker and part-time halfback. His senior year, DeMoss led NKY in touchdown completions and was given honorable mention for the Courier-Journal’s All State Team in an era when football around the Commonwealth of Kentucky was anything but organized on a statewide level. DeMoss was given a... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/16)

The Tigers put Hazard on a list that also included Williamsburg and Pikeville as teams Paintsville have defeated. Up next is the final piece to the puzzle versus Raceland in a game that will determine the District Champion. Beechwood made yet another statement of dominance by crushing Ludlow. Paris and Frankfort also turned heads with key wins in District games. Frankfort’s work is not quite done as they need to take down Kentucky Country Day this week to keep their momentum going. 1....

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2017 Western Kentucky Power Rankings - Week 8 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, we have 2 again this week. 1.

Austin's (the young man just recently tragically killed) mother to walk to mid-field as an Honorary Team Captain this week. Each Calloway County captain brought a single rose with them to...

3A Notebook: Boyle Clears Lexington Catholic Hurdle

By gchs_uk9 - Boyle Does What's Necessary to Win a Big Game In eight of the last nine meetings against district rival Lexington Catholic, Boyle County had come out on the losing end. There were six losses in Lexington, two losses at Boyle, three losses in the playoffs, each one stinging in its own way. However, with the winner assured an opportunity to play for a district championship next week, third-ranked Boyle County weathered the disappointment of two touchdowns being called back due to penalties in the first half by dominating the Knights in the second half en route to a 48-17 victory, eclipsing...

Class 2A Notebook 10/14- The Main Event

By ATLCat - As we enter the essentially the final week of District play, it is appropriate to view the 2017 Class 2A District slate as a comparison to the card for a Pay Per View Boxing/UFC event. " The Lead In " District 1: Mayfield 56 Murray 21, September 29th What This Bout Taught Us: This was the game that got people to tune in early although everyone knew a knockout was coming. Mayfield was a cut above in their District all season and made short work of a Murray team that simply did not have the footwork, stamina, or punching power to go toe-to-toe. Mayfield's Best Attribute: Mayfield can do... Read More →

2A Game of the Week: #1 Danville at #3 Lexington Christian Academy

By DevilMayCare - Every year, when the schedules are released, there are certain games that immediately stand out as must-see. This year, we had Trinity vs. St. X, Mayfield vs. Corbin, Belfry vs. Johnson Central, and DeSales vs. CAL, just to name a few. This week's 2A Game of the Week certainly falls into the category of a must-see game. Anytime you get highly ranked, unbeaten, district rivals locking horns this late in the season, it's big deal. This will be the fourth year in a row that this match-up will serve as the de facto district championship game, with the Admirals winning in 2014 and 2015, and... Read More →
