Bowling Green Purples Regular Season Recap

By Purple Nation - Purples end regular season with a 9 and 1 record. With the exception of about a 20 minute meltdown at St X, they could/would have run the table. Special Teams - B+ This year Special Team squad has done an above average job. Jr. Lee Ramsey has greatly improved his leg strength as well as his accuracy (should be top 5 kicker in Bluegrass next season). Rarely will you see an opposing team advance the ball past the 30 on kickoff returns past the Purples. Defense - B+ Purples do great job against the run and are typically lights out against the pass. Tre Fant has to be the defensive MVP... Read More →


Louisville Power Rankings 11-2-15

By Bert - 1) Male High School (10-0, Defeated Western 56-0) – Easy win over a struggling team. Next game versus Jeffersontown should be about the same. 2) Trinity High School (9-1, Idle) – Rocks get a week off before their rematch with PRP. 3) St. Xavier High School (6-4, defeated Cincy St. X 20-10) – Not a terrible loss. Next week versus Eastern should be a snoozer. 4) DuPont Manual High School (8-2, Defeated Eastern 35-16) Pretty much as expected. Rematch versus Ballard next week. Manual will be favored. 5) Central (8-2, Defeated PRP) Central just keeps on winning. Next week versus... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 6A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - The 2015 Class 6A regular season has ended. Speculation can begin on who is good enough to make it to the Championship Game. Will there be a surprise this season or will it be status quo? Region 1 The Western Kentucky Region looks to be a two horse race this year. Traditional powers Meade County and Henderson have struggled this season. McCracken County (8-2) looks to be the heavy favorite to reach the regional final game. They have been the most consistent team in the region. Though last week they lost to a very good Bowling Green team, I don’t think it affects the thinking that... Read More →



Bluegrasspreps' Class 5A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - Many may have questioned who should be the favorite in Class 5A all season. Many have valid arguments: Pulaski County won the State Championship last season and should be number one; Pulaski County hasn’t done anything to prove they are not number one; Bowling Green has a great history; Bowling Green has beaten everyone they were supposed to beat and should be number one. All the opinions have merit, but as the playoffs begin both teams are there and both teams now have the opportunity to prove who is the real number one team in Class 5A. Will it be Pulaski County or Bowling Green? Or, will... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Class 4A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - This class has been fairly static for much of the year, but got a little chaos introduced to it in the final week with several teams producing odd results. But one team has stood apart the whole season, end to end. Region 1 Coming into the year, it was a given that South Warren was going to be the favorite in their region, and a co-favorite for their side of the state. They announced LOUDLY in Week 0 that they were perhaps the favorite for the entire state with a 43-12 thrashing of then-#2 John Hardin. Since that time, South Warren has occupied the stalking horse position of #2 right... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Class 3A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region 1 Class 3A-Region I has been the domain of South Warren for the last few years without any real challengers. When the Spartans moved up to Class 4A this year, it left a spot to be filled. This year, Region I's top four seeds have combined to lose only six games (two of those were to each other) and picking a favorite has proven to be very difficult. The champion should come from one of three teams - Caldwell County, Elizabethtown, or Paducah Tilghman. Caldwell County (8-2) won District 1 and squeezed eight consecutive wins between a season opening two-point loss to Christian... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Class 2A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region 1 In a Class that has a nice mix of balance across the 4 Regions, there is no denying Region 1 is probably the thickest with the elite of the class. Three of 2A’s top Contenders all reside in Region 1 in #1 Mayfield, #4 Owensboro Catholic and #6 Murray. In addition you can throw in Butler County who has flirted all season in the 10-12 range of the class. Mayfield has the distinct advantage of home field advantage until the State Finals. Expect the Cardinals to parlay this into a Regional Finals birth. Butler County is a fun team and QB Rex Henderson may very well be the MVP of... Read More →


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 →


Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (11/2)

By Ram - In Class 1A, the final rankings have Beechwood at #1, a surprise to no one. The Red Tigers have been at the top all season and are expected to take their game to Bowling Green. They are followed by Paintsville at #2 and Pikeville #3. The Blue Tigers won their first matchup with Pikeville in a close game and it looks as if the two may match up a second time in the playoffs. Russellville ends at #4 with Paris at #5. Fairview finishes at #6 and the top 10 are rounded out by Raceland at #7, Hazard at #8, Bishop Brossart at #9 and Holy Cross – Louisville at #10. Raceland will meet up with Bishop... 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 →
