Class 4A Notebook (9/5): No Waves This Week

By DragonFire - Last week #1 Johnson Central lost the initiative to keep the top ranking, putting them at the mercy of Franklin-Simpson’s result against South Warren. This week the ball is squarely back in Johnson Central’s court. As has frequently been the case in the last two years, 4A has been knocked around by the elite of other classes this season. Teams in the 4A top 10 have played five games against teams in the top 5 of other classes – they’re 1-4 with Ashland’s win over Raceland the lone win for the class. This week it was South Warren’s turn again to light up a 4A top team, putting another... Read More →


Louisville Power Rankings 9/3

By TheDeuce - 1. 6A Male (3-0) The boys in Purple and Gold posted their third straight dominating performance last week, posting a 50-0 drubbing of 5A Doss. As they look ahead to this week, they face their first real test of 2018, when they visit the Trinity Shamrocks. A win over the Shamrocks would solidify the Bulldogs spot at the top of the Power Rankings, and also validate them as the best team in the state of Kentucky. 2. 6A Trinity (0-3) In a game that was stopped in the third quarter due to weather, Trinity gave up a first half lead and again found themselves on the losing end of a third...

6A Notebook: What the heck is going on here?

By Bac2369 - It’s already been an exciting few weeks of high school football and it is only going to get better. Class 6A has caused many of us to scratch our heads early this season. The top teams leave us asking, “What the heck is going on here?”. The #1 Trinity Shamrocks had started the season at 0-2, only losing by a total of 4 points in their two games. Trinity was on the road this week against ArchBishop Moeller (OH).Trinity jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead on a miscue and a blocked punt. Moeller answered and tied the game before the end of the 1st quarter. Trinity would have some miscues of... Read More →


1A Notebook 9/3 - Where are we Headed?

By Voice of Reason - This week instead of doing a recap of last week's games, let's do an overview of what has happened early in the season. Teams have played 2 or 3 games at this point and have provided enough evidence for us to get a feel for things. Do we have any surprises so far? How are the top tier teams looking? Who looks like the true dark horse teams we need to keep a close eye on? At the Top Coming into the season, it was acknowledged by most that the top 5 teams in the rankings were above the rest. This is true in most classes. There are usually 3-6 teams that are just a notch or two above... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (9/3): Student 1 - Teacher 0

By DevilMayCare - Personally, when I think of instances where a pupil got the better of their former teacher/mentor, a couple of good examples come to mind… 1. Bill Belichick’s Browns defeating Bill Parcells’ Patriots in the 1994 AFC playoffs after Belichick spent seven years as Parcells’ Defensive Coordinator with the New York Giants, winning two Super Bowls together… 2. Darth Vader cutting down Obi-wan Kenobi aboard the Death Star in Episode IV after decades of bad blood stemming from Anakin turning to the dark side and Obi-wan cutting his legs off and leaving him to burn like a marshmallow that's been left...

Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 1-1)- Johnson Central got off the mat from a season opening loss and took down 6A Henry Clay. The Eagles' Offense still sin't quite humming the way they like, they will look to get on the same page against South Charleston, WV. 3. Belfry Pirates (3A, 1-1)- Belfry got back in the win column by putting a... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/3)

By Ram - Class 1A Beechwood didn't get a full four quarters in against Somerset, but what time they were on the field was impressive. The Tigers get one of their stiffest tests this week, heading down I-75 to play an excellent 3A Corbin squad. On a week where the majority of the Top 10 will be playing ranked foes, perhaps the most telling game will be the annual clash between Eastern Kentucky heavyweights, when Pikeville and Paintsville meet. Both Hazard and Raceland have been sharp in the early season, and both should be expected to have to play a full 48:00 this week against solid foes. 1.... Read More →
