Bluegrasspreps' Class 1A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region 1 This region has a very different look and feel this year. The king of this region the past few years is now playing in 2A which means we will crown a new regional winner in region 1 this year. Despite the king being gone, it looks like he has just been replaced by a new king. Russellville is the team that gave Mayfield its toughest challenges. Now that Mayfield is gone, Russellville is the heir apparent. As we look at the brackets, Russellville and Campbellsville will have no trouble winning in round one and meeting in round two. Early in the year, this was shaping up as a big... Read More →

Kane was able in OT

By DevilMayCare - On a night when many teams around the state were resting starters for the playoffs, the Raceland Rams and Russell Red Devils had no shortage of motivation to leave it all on the field at Henry R. Evans Stadium. After two straight district losses, including a 50-7 setback to Paintsville, Raceland needed to find it's mojo in time for the postseason. The Rams seemingly did just that on Halloween eve by outlasting the Red Devils in OT. After holding Russell scoreless on it's opening possession in OT, Raceland RB Kane Snyder took a handoff, saw a pile of humanity in front of him and bounced it... Read More →

1A Notebook - Final Countdown

By Voice of Reason - It is here. It is hard to believe the regular season is almost over. The district games are in the books and final preparations for the playoffs are under way. It is interesting to see how coaches schedule this last game. Some coaches schedule a really tough opponent. Some coaches have a larger class school who is average at best. Some coaches stayed in class and scheduled a tough out of area 1A opponent. Here is the rundown for this final week. Top ranked Beechwood is one of those schools that scheduled a really tough opponent - 2A #7 and multi-time state champion Newport Central... Read More →


6A Notebook (Where are they now?)

By CoachBuckett - As we enter the last week of the season I thought we would take a look back at the beginning of the season to compare our preseason Top 10 to see where they are now. Are these 6A teams who we thought they were? Male Bulldogs entered the season as the number one team in class 6A. After two weeks they quickly dropped to number 2 not because of their performance but that others around them at the time had a couple of bigger wins. Week 4 rolled around and the Bulldogs quickly showed everyone why they are the number one team in Class 6A with a 29 point win over then number 1 ranked Trinity.... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook- Brackets Set... Bragging Right Weekend Awaits

By ATLCat - Weekend Rewind: By and large an uneventful weekend for the Class' Top 10 teams. The Top 7 Teams all failed to see an opponent that could hang within 5 TD's. The most important game was #8 Lloyd Memorial surviving a tough Covington Holy Cross 42-36 to clinch the 2 seed and a home playoff game. CHC is now ticketed to travel to Owen County in Round 1 and if they win, 2A Perennial Powerhouse NewCath awaits. Owen County earned their 2-seed in their own right by outlasting Gallatin County 8-6 in a Defensive stalemate. The win eliminates a potential 3-way tie and forces Gallatin to a 4... Read More →


Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 10/25/15

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2015 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 9 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week: Can you feel it? It’s the calm before the storm! This is the last week before we all go into Full Throttle Playoff Mode! Is it best to schedule a cupcake now after your district matchups? Or like Trinity a couple years ago in scheduling Archbishop Moeller the last game of the season? Most aren’t like T and I think a good blend in between is the ticket depending on where you are on the 1A to 6A grading scale. For example, I love the Paducah Tilghman vs Murray matchup as...

3A Notebook - Matchups, Champions, and Tiebreakers

By gchs_uk9 - Several years ago the KHSAA made the decision to adopt a scheduling grid for football. Instead of playing district games through the last Friday night of the regular season, the district schedule now ends one week earlier. I'm not exactly sure what the reasoning for this decision was, but it does provide three things for the season finale: interesting out-of-district matchups, nearly all districts with confirmed champions, and an opportunity for about 90% of the public to be confused regarding the KHSAA tiebreaker system. With this week being the final 3A Notebook for the regular season,... Read More →
