Class 2A Notebook (Week 1)

By ATLCat - The resounding theme of Week 0 was for 2A teams to step out of class for Non-District openers against quality opposition. A total of six of the 2A Top 15 started their season with a loss as a result. Tests Passed As expected both #1 Mayfield and #2 DeSales stepped up in class and rolled in dominating fashion. Danville, Leslie County, Somerset, and Butler County also followed suit by playing schools of larger enrollment and vanquishing their opposition in very convincing fashion. Tests Failed It was not as kind of a season opener though for several other schools looking to stretch... Read More →


Paris with big win to kickoff season over Frankfort, 21-12

By newarkcatholicfan - This was a game that was competitive all away around, where it did appear the better of the two teams won. The things that both things shared was their poor tackling all night lobe. I do not think it was from lack of effort, but dag it was there for some reason. The game started out with a bang when, Mathew Smith fielded the opening kickoff at the six and streaked up field, not stopping until he had hit pay dirt. The two point try failed. 6-0 Frankfort 11:46. Paris got lucky when Brian Cruz recovered a Kobe Garrard fumble, with 10:59 left in the quarter. Garrard is the starting... Read More →


Class 3A Notebook (8/23)

By gchs_uk9 - Class 3A got off to an exciting start on opening weekend seeing two of the preseason top five garner big wins over ranked 6A opponents. Boyle County won the opening game of the Fort Harrod Bowl at Mercer County, defeating 6A #9 Central Hardin. The third-ranked Rebels had allowed a late Bruins score but stopped the ensuing two-point conversion attempt that would have forced a tie and likely sent the game into overtime. While there was much chatter on BGP leading up to the game, with some on both sides predicting lopsided victories, most would assess the matchup as even and will pinpoint... Read More →


Elizabethtown dominating win over West Jessamine, 46-6.

By newarkcatholicfan - The night started great for Elizabethtown and as poorly as a season can for West. The opening kickoff was fielded by, Bernell Cecil(5-9-175) at the one , all he did was flash some speed as he took in to the house to give E-Town the early lead. The point after kick by Peyton Payne, went about fifty-yards but was no good,6-0 E-Town 11:46 left in the opening quarter. West trying to establish a running game was stopped short on a third and three play, with 9:50 left in the first but a face mask call on the defense, moved the chains. West could not mount anything and had to punt the ball away... Read More →



East Jessamine rides offense to opening season win over Harrison, 38-33

By newarkcatholicfan - The VisitNich.com Bowl got started with a bang on Friday night and when all was said and done a Jessamine County team had posted their first win, in this bowl game. Coming into this game the talk was this was a game Harrison would win and do so fairly easy. the problem was someone never sent East Jessamine the memo. 10:44 showed on the clock when A Harrison player put he ball on the ground in a big pile of players and coming out of the pile was a East player. The guys in the booth nor myself could see, who coughed it up or who recovered it. East would get a nice run by Kyle... Read More →


South Warren Spartans Don't Miss a Beat!

By Doubletake1906 - After many questions about how the South Warren Spartans would adjust to the speed, strength, size, etc of teams in 4A, all those questions have been answered following South Warrens dominant 44-12 win over John Hardin (Preseason #1 in 4A). The Spartans have not missed a beat since their State Final 4 run in 3A last year. Returning virtually every starter from last season, the Spartans were ,by far, the more disciplined, more physical, and more athletic team on the field. Their entire arsenal was on full display! South Warrens defense has been the most dominant defense in the State over... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (8/23)

By Ram - Wow, big shocker to start the 2015 season, number one ranked Highlands takes a loss, not only a loss but a loss to a Kentucky team, not only a loss to a Kentucky team, but a loss to a Northern Kentucky team - Cooper. Cooper has built a good program in a short time of existence, but not many expected them to beat Highlands in their first attempt. Is the sky falling in Fort Thomas? How will the Blue Birds recover from starting the season 0-1? Bowling Green started another winning streak this week, beating Monroe County pretty handily even thought Monroe County is expected to have a good... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings (Week 1)

By ATLCat - 10. Pikeville (1A, 1-0)- Panthers had questions entering their opener with 2A Prestonsburg but quickly answered all of them. Pikeville gets another quality game against 5A Letcher Central in the Pike County Bowl. 9. Raceland (1A, 1-0)- Rams were not in the form expected of them against a 3A West Carter team that has tempered expectations around them.Rams can quickly make a statement this week with rival Ashland. 8. Russell (3A, 0-0)- Devils were idle but hopes are extremely high after a very impressive scrimmage slate. County rival 4A Greenup County should be a favorable draw. 7. Bell... Read More →


Lexington/CKY Power Rankings (Week 1) Sponsored by Jess-105.9 Central KY

By Bluegrasscard - Lexington / Central Kentucky Top 10 Power Rankings - Week 0 The first week of play always adds clarity to any ranking and such was the case here. In the Game of the Week Boyle County showed it can hang with and beat the big bruisers from 6A with a 21 - 18 win over Central Hardin. Lafayette and Scott County were both winners in their opening games with the Generals downing local rival Paul Lawrance Dunbar. Scott County put a licking on Tates Creek 46 to 6. Henry Clay was idle. To round out the top half of the top ten - Lexington Catholic cruised by Boone County, 51 to 13. ... Read More →


What to Watch in Class 3A (Week 0)

By gchs_uk9 - Big Time Week Zero Matchups Three of the preseason top five teams will take on ranked opponents from Class 6A on opening weekend. #3 Boyle County will face 6A #9 Central Hardin at the Fort Harrod Bowl at Mercer County. Both programs are in year two with terrific head coaches and both are looking to advance beyond last year's regional runner-up showings. This game has been one of the most discussed on BGP all summer and has all the makings of a barn-burner. In the Derby City, last season's state runner-up Central will travel to historic Manual Stadium to face the Manual Crimsons in... Read More →


Johnson Central to Play Oscar Smith (VA)

By ATLCat - **Not to steal the thunder from Tony Cavalier in the Johnson Central 2015 thread, but this probably deserves it's own thread.** Much has been made of Johnson Central and their non-district foes from out of the State. From Canadian teams to home schooled teams to teams from the inner-city of Philadelphia, Coach Matney has tried to fill a 10 game slate by "any means necessary" drawing ire and criticism along the way. With the clock ticking down until the beginning of the 2015 season and still short a game, Johnson Central took a swing for the fences and will raise eyebrows once again with... Read More →


Class 5A Games to Watch (8/21)

By Ram - There are some interesting games to take note of in Class 5A in the first week of the season. They are not for bragging rights, for the most part, or for District Championships, but they are going to tell a lot of people about what some teams are going to do this year. #1 Highlands at 6A Cooper Some think Highlands may be closer to the pack then normal and may smell some blood in the water. Cooper has done a lot in their short time in existence. These two teams have never met and this meeting should be interesting. Cooper coming off a 9-5 season that ended at the hands of the eventual... Read More →


1A Notes for Week 0

By Voice of Reason - Looking ahead to Friday night lights 2015 style in 1A, we have discussed some nice matchups for our top 10 teams in the prediction threads. One of the games that seems to be drawing the most interest is #2 Raceland vs. 3A West Carter. It has been interesting seeing that some people seem to think that could actually be an upset win by West Carter. That would be a heck of an upset considering Raceland is considered the team to beat in 1A by some and West Carter hasn't had a winning record since, well, someone fill in that blank for me. There are several top ten ranked teams facing... Read More →


What To Watch In Class 2A (Week 0)

By ATLCat - DeSales and Mayfield Impress Scrimmages have to be taken in small doses when setting expectations, but both the #1 and the #2 ranked teams in the Bluegrasspreps.com AA Rankings made outstanding first impressions in their scrimmage debuts. Mayfield defeated Tennessee AAA Power Milan 21-15 in a live scrimmage. Milan is expected to be one of the Top 5 teams in their class and returned the farm from a State Semi-Finalist team from 2014. DeSales pounced all over 6A Meade County and thoroughly dominated the Green Wave in all facets. Meade was hit heavy by graduation and have tempered... Read More →


Russell muscles their way to, 42-6 win over Rowan County (Scrimmage)

By newarkcatholicfan - NO ROSTERS SO I HAD TO GO WITH NUMBER ONLY One knew going into this live scrimmage Rowan was up against an area monster and it was going to take a near perfect performance to have a shot. Russell struck early and often ending any hopes the Vikings had to win or even to keep this one close. All throughout this one it was apparent the Vikings run offense was not going to be effective enough to keep this one in this but that did not stop their offense from working on that part of the game nor did it appear they ever quit. Now to the game. The Rowan defense would show it was not... Read More →
