Class 5A Notebook (9-7): The Sky is Falling, the Sky is Falling

By Ram - The sky is falling, the sky is falling, the sky is falling. Pre-season number one, and perieneral power, Highlands is 1-2 beating a winless team to get in the winners column. District foe, Covington Catholic is 0-3 and will likely be below .500 on the season.

By CoachBuckett - If we look at the season as quarters of a football game then we just completed the first quarter.

Louisville Area Power Rankings for 9-7-15

By Bert - 1) Trinity High School (3-0, defeated Lexington Lafayette 70-14) Some felt Lafayette would give Trinity a decent game, Trinity put that thought away pretty quickly. Next weeks game will be billed as the game of the season state wide and Trinity takes on Male at Male. 2) Male High School (3-0, defeated Fairdale 64-6) Males continues to show its case for being number one over Trinity. Will wait till next weeks game to finally answer that question. 3) St. Xavier High School (2-0, defeated Bowling Green 45-19) X finally shakes the Purple monkey off its back and gets a convincing...

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2015 Western Kentucky Power Rankings Week 2 Edition - 09/06/15 Concerning the top story line for this week, Ive decided to recognize a well-known BGPer, who absolutely loved Prep football in the Western part of the state and lost his lengthy health battle in this past off-season (March 2015).

Mr. Quarles was a recent respected player for his beloved Hopkinsville Tigers and the Players of the Week will now be known as the Jayvon Quarles Players of the Week.

Class 3A Football Wins, Losses, and Omens? (9/6)

By gchs_uk9 - Title Town Smack Down Boyle County cemented their place at the top of Class 3A with a 42-20 victory across town at Danville. The Admirals, coming off big wins over Larue County and Rockcastle County, were ranked #6 in Class 2A this week and were being hyped as a potential threat to knock off the Rebels.

Russell notches first win over Ironton since 1977

By DevilMayCare - Bell bottoms, Disco, Star Wars, the Son of Sam..... Ahh the memories. Actually, between you and me, I wasn't even born yet. The year was 1977. Russell's Ivan McGlone and Ironton's Bob Lutz were still young(ish) men, in the early stages of building great programs. The final score that year was 23-14 in favor of the Red Devils. It would be the last time Russell would defeat its cross river rival for 38 years. After '77, Ironton would win the next eleven in a row before the series went on hiatus beginning in 1993. The two schools renewed the series in 2009 with Ironton winning six in a... Read More →

Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 9-6-15

By ATLCat - 10. Raceland (1A, 2-1)- Storms forced the Rams to play Saturday but there was no slwoing down the raining of points against East Carter. Greenup County has been a pleasant surprise and should be a better test. 9. Russell (3A, 2-0)- The statement win of the week? Russell going to Ironton, OH and stealing one from the Mighty Tigers on Saturday night. The historic win came at a cost as the Devils are banged up entering a huge matchup this week. 8. Pikeville (1A, 2-1)- The next two teams flip flop as last week's GOTW lived up to the hype in an Overtime thriller. Pikeville learned the value... Read More →

Louisville Area Power Rankings 8-31-15

By Bert - 1) Trinity High School (2-0, defeated Brentwood Academy 31-13) While not as convincing of a victory as the week before against Ensworth, still a solid victory over a traditional Tennessee power. The real test for who is #1 will be in two weeks against Male. Next week, Lafayette 2) Male High School (2-0, defeated Ballard 45-7) Some will say after such a victory over a Louisville Area Top Ten would justify being #1 .
