Louisville Power Rankings 10-18-15

By Bert - 1) Male High School (8-0, Idle) – Numerous turnovers kept X closer Male could feel comfortable with but still pulled out the win. Next week is the old rivalry against Manual. On paper Male should win with confidence but rivalries are crazy. 2) Trinity High School (8-1, defeated Seneca 42-0) – Another easy win by Trinity. Next week versus Ballard should be a better game but Trinity should still win my a few touch downs. 3) St. Xavier High School (5-3, defeated by Male 27-24) – Male turnovers kept the game close but X just couldn’t climb the fence to victory. 4) DuPont Manual High...

South Floyd - Closing, But Not Quitting

By gchs_uk9 - "Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open." Alexander Graham Bell In the fall of 2017, Floyd Central High School will open near Eastern, Kentucky, a consolidation of Allen Central and South Floyd High Schools. The school’s athletic teams will be known as the Jaguars and its athletes will dress in teal and gold. With excitement in the air over the $49 million facility that will house somewhere near 700 students, I decided to take a trip to eastern Kentucky to check on the situation at South Floyd – a school on the verge of closing...

3A Notebook - Shakeup at the Top, Now Who's #1?

By gchs_uk9 - Lexington Catholic Hooks Win at Boyle, Do They Climb Ladder to Top Ranking? With just over a minute to go in regulation of a ballgame tied at 24, Friday night's matchup between #1 Boyle County and #6 Lexington Catholic was already shaping up to be another in a long line of close, intense, classic games between the two rivals. When Lexington Catholic quarterback Kirk Fagot completed a nine-yard pass to Donovan Morris just across midfield, you had to think the Knights were making progress toward a potential game-winning field goal. It was what happened afterward that had heads spinning... Read More →


Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-18-15

By ATLCat - 10. Bell County (3A, 6-2)- Bobcats blow a 2 TD lead at home and now must take to the road. Jackson County should provide a nice bounce back. 9. Pikeville (1A, 6-2)- Panthers rout Phelps and continue the "get some young guys plenty of PT" portion of their schedule with Jenkins this week. 8. Corbin (3A, 5-3)- Huge win for the Hounds over their District rival makes them the favorite in their Region. Corbin seems to be peaking at the right time but the injury report continues to be a problem. Casey County shouldn't be too much of a challenge. 7. North Laurel (5A, 9-0)- The only... Read More →



Louisville Power Rankings 10-12-15

By Bert - Apologies on the tardiness of this ranking. 1) Male High School (7-0, Idle) – Next week versus St. X should be a pretty god match up for Male. 2) Trinity High School (7-1, defeated Eastern 63-7) – Easy win by Trinity. Next week versus Seneca could be even worse. 3) St. Xavier High School (5-2, defeated Manual 27-6) – Good win over a strong Manual team. Next week against Male could be a great game. 4) DuPont Manual High School (6-1, Defeated by St. X 27-6) Disappointing loss for the Rams, this was Manual’s best chance to beat X in years. Next week versus PRP should be a good... Read More →


6A Notebook/ Who are the Play makers?

By CoachBuckett - We are approaching the end of the regular season with 3 weeks before we begin post season play. We have discussed many times the top teams in class 6A. We have talked week after week about Male and if there will be anyone who has the ability to beat them. This week I want to shift focus to the statistical leaders of Class 6A. Who are the guys making plays for their teams. What do they mean to their team? The Male Bulldogs are loaded with many talented players. We first think of Male we think of University of Louisville commit Kieon Wakefield. He has been slowed some this season, not by... Read More →


1A Notebook 10/13/15 - District Shuffle?

By Voice of Reason - Last week was a calm one in 1A. Everything went true to expectations with the only top ten team to lose being #8 Fairview, who lost to #2 Paintsville. This week should be a little more interesting with some key district battles happening that could shuffle the rankings and playoff lineups. Who will be the winners and losers this week in 1A? The #1 ranked Beechwood Tigers should have no problem continuing their winning ways. This week's opponent, the 5-3 Ludlow Panthers, might be their toughest district opponent but Beechwood is still a big favorite. Beechwood's defense finally got it done... Read More →


Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-13-15

By ATLCat - 10. Corbin (3A, 4-3)- Redhounds got a much needed rest and now turn their focus on a massive EKY matchup. 9. Pikeville (1A, 5-2)- With the District locked up the Panthers continue to gear down for a playoff run. Expect Pikeville to coast until the Regional Finals. 8. Bell County (3A, 6-1)- The Bobcats are playing good football and went on the road to beat a solid larger classification Tennessee school. More on them further down. 7. North Laurel (5A, 8-0)- As expected the Jags continue to cruise along and an undefeated regular season is imminent. Will the lack of a test though hurt... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook: History Repeating Itself?

By ATLCat - CAL Does It Again For the third straight year Christian Academy- Louisville took down 2A Heavyweight DeSales in the regular season matchup. The Centurions Defense reigned supreme and shutout DeSales 16-0 behind a Clay Davis Touchdown Reception and a huge 104 yard Interception Return for a TD by Milton Wright. Neither team reached 200 total yards in a physical war. With the win, CAL all but locks up the #1 Seed in District 4. DeSales will most likely take their show on the Road in Round 2 to whoever wins this week's matchup between District 3 Rivals Monroe County and Glasgow. If the... Read More →

Class 4A Football Notebook (10/12): Playoffs Coming Into Focus (mostly)

By DragonFire - This week we will pass the midpoint of October, and suddenly there are only three weeks left in the regular season. Many districts have started to have their playoff picture come into focus, while a few are still quite clouded. District 1 is pretty cut and dry, as we expected it to be. #7 Hopkinsville continues to roll, gaining a 42-8 victory over Logan County to improve to 7-1. They have yet to score less than 21 points this season, and have topped 42 points four times. This week they will play a district title game against surprising 4-3 Calloway County, which played themselves into... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (10/12)

By Ram - Paintsville proved they are near the top by winning their first district game in the Super District of Class 1A. Can they beat Raceland? That is the big question on a lot of minds right now. Beechwood is getting better each week and may be peaking at the right time of year. Pikeville, Raceland and Russellville are just waiting for their chance to prove where they belong in a top heavy class. We know what Paintsville did against Fairview last week. Now we will get a better read on the East when Raceland takes their shot at Fairview. In Class 2A Mayfield has returned to the number one... Read More →

3A Notebook: Best Teams, Biggest Games, Boldest Predictions

By gchs_uk9 - This week's 3A Notebook is coming from the shores of Destin, Florida. With many schools taking fall break either this week or last, and with many teams enjoying bye weeks leading into or just inside of district play, I thought it would be a good opportunity to look at district races and the current state of the class. For each of the eight districts we will declare a best team, search for the biggest game, and toss out a bold prediction that is sure to go wrong! District 1 Best Team Caldwell County has cemented itself as the team to beat in the district, and likely the region, with... Read More →
