Louisville Football Power Rankings for 10-3 - Sponsored by Get in the Game on WBKI.

By Bert - Thanks to our Sponsor WBKI TV Louisville The CW. Get in the game with Game On WBKI Saturdays @ 8p. Tv station: WBKI TV Twitter: @ItsGame_On 58426 1. Trinity (7-0) – Trinity entered their game against X as the favorite but not a heavy favorite. The left the game making people reconsider. Their 35-13 beating of St.X was quite impressive and further cements them as the #1 team. Next week’s game against Eastern should be ugly. The following week versus Seneca will be worse. Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (10/4): Resurgent Rockets

By DragonFire - In 2000, Rockcastle County won their first region championship. After years upon years of running headlong into dominant programs from Bell County, to Danville, to Boyle County, the light finally shined on Rockcastle County and they broke through with a 7-6 win over Sheldon Clark. They were summarily dismissed by a machine in Highlands, but the Rockets followed that up with arguably the finest teams in the program’s history, running to 14-1 and 13-2 records in 2001 & 2002, but having the misfortune to (once again) running into Boyle County both years, who swatted away their dreams of a...

1A Notebook 10/4 - Districts Review

By Voice of Reason - Last week's results were true to what was expected. Our top four teams won in lopsided fashion. Game of the week was Pikeville versus Hazard and that outcome was true to our rankings with Pikeville winning a hard fought battle beind an outstanding performance by their QB Wyatt Battaille. The only other game to note was outside the top 10 with Bracken County coming from behind to beat Paris 43-41. We are into district time so let's take a look at the 1A districts across the state. District 1 – Crittenden County, Fulton City, Fulton County, Russellville This district features current... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (10/3)

By Ram - Class 1A All eyes were on Pikeville where District 8 was set to be determined in a match-up between Pikeville and Hazard.

Three huge showdowns highlight this week’s action as Paintsville takes on Fairview and undefeated Nicholas County must try to fend off Paris. Another game to keep an eye on over in the Western Semi-State will be a huge District clash featuring Louisville Holy Cross and Kentucky Country Day, a pair of Top 10 teams. 1.

BluegrassPreps - Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 10/2/16

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2016 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 6 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, Fall and Fall Breaks have arrived and for many of the top teams, the BYE week is upon us. Rest and recuperation are the most prescribed mandates for most teams and yourself. I went to the lake this weekend and it was a BLAST! I encourage you and yours to do the same and enjoy our great outdoors! While players are headed to the couch, what about the coaching staffs? I would say the better coaching staffs take this time to relax a bit, but carry around film on the best... Read More →

3A Notebook: Russell Continues Lock Down of Competition

By gchs_uk9 - Red Devil Defense Dominates Fleming County For the sixth consecutive game, Russell held their opponent under double digits. Russell went to Fleming County on Friday night and slowed down the high flying Panthers, allowing only a late touchdown on a fumble recovery in a 30-7 victory. Fleming County (4-2) entered the game averaging 41.2 points per game, much of it from quarterback Josh Crump who had passed for 1,212 yards and 16 touchdowns before Friday night. Russell coach T.J. Maynard told the Ashland Daily Independent “We knew coming in the Crump kid is a good football player; he... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-2

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 6-0)- The Golden Eagles are red hot and inch into the #1 spot by way of comparative analysis. Their undefeated record and a dominating win over possibly the #1 overall team in West Virginia puts them at the top by the narrowest of margins. 2. Belfry Pirates (3A, 5-1)- The Pirates avenged their only loss from 2015 but still showed signs of playing at less than a peak performance. Belfry has a three week stretch to work out the kinks before the battle for #1 in Week 10. 3. Corbin Redhounds (3A, 6-1)- Corbin now directs their focus to winning another... Read More →

1A Notebook 9/27 - Who had the best Pre-District?

By Voice of Reason - The district battles are getting started. A few teams still are playing pre-district games but this will be the last week of out of district games for most teams. This seems like a good time to look at the pre-district successes, and losses, of our ranked teams. There is always a discussion about the out of district schedules teams have. Some teams will play a very difficult out of district schedule to prepare their team and to find their team's strengths and weaknesses against really tough competition. Some teams shape the out of district schedule with a mix of tough and less challenging... Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (9/28/2016)

By JDEaston - While there were no top ten matchups in class 5A’s week 5, along with no movement in this week’s top ten, there were some games and scores to take note of. Let’s take a look at the Pulaski County vs. Madison Southern game first. Pulaski County has been working their way back up in the rankings after their early season blowout loss to 6A Scott County. Madison Southern on the other hand has been hanging around just outside of the BGP Top Ten for several weeks now, looking for a way in. The 205 yards passing from Matt Hendricks, along with a balanced rushing attack was enough for the Maroons to... Read More →

By Bert - Thanks to our Sponsor WBKI TV Louisville The CW. Get in the game with Game On WBKI Saturdays @ 8p. Tv station: WBKI TV Twitter: @ItsGame_On 58288 1. Trinity (6-0) – Trinity’s 70-0 win over Jeffersontown was a game that you hate to see. The game did give Trinity the ability not to worry about overlooking the opponent before taking on their archrival St. Xavier. Trinity will be the favorite in this game but rivalries are crazy so don’t take a Shamrock victory for granted in this weeks Featured Game. 2. Male (5-1) – Male over powers legitimate opponent Butler 41-12. Next week Male... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (9/27): Big Game Meets the Hype

By DragonFire - How great was that South Warren at Franklin-Simpson game? These days, it feels increasingly rare for a game to live up to the hype, but this one met it and then some. All the elements were there, as detailed last week. You had rivals situated about 20 minutes from each other. You had the defending state champion in South Warren, albeit without many of their players from last year, and the historical power Franklin-Simpson, yearning to prove that they were finally ready to make good on years of talent that was simply “too young” to be ready. South Warren entered the game with a blemish... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 9/26- Breaking Down The Darkhorses

By ATLCat - First, Let's Start With The Lead Pony Though this week's notebook will be focused more on some of the teams outside of the Top 10, we would be doing a disservice if we did not address the biggest win of the Week. Mayfield looked like a juggernaut for a Half against #2 3A Corbin. The Cards jumped out to a big lead, even missing Mr. Everything Trajon Bright, before having to hold off fatigue and a late Redhound push in the Second Half. For the other 2A Contenders the Second Half has to serve as a ray of hope as Mayfield is uncharacteristically struggling to close out games. With that said,... Read More →
