Class 2A Football Notes and Commentary (Week 2)

By ATLCat - Welcome Back Danville and the Title Town Rivalry Not since "The Walking Dead" has a better story of coming back from the dead reigned! Danville looked good in Week 0 and looked great in Week 1 by demolishing 4A Rockcastle County 46-18. The Ads have a nice mix of athletes and Defensive playmakers and a buzz is emanating. Up next is rival Boyle County who coincidentally also appears to be "up" and for the first time in several years all eyes will be on "Title Town" for the renewal of one of the State's iconic rivalries. NewCath's Offensive Offense Newport Central Catholic's schedule is no... Read More →

Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 8-30-2015

By ATLCat - 10. Raceland (1A, 1-1)- The Rams met a buzzsaw in the Rival Tomcats and Quinton Baker. The schedule lightens up with East Carter and their Week 0 win over West Carter looks better. 9. Paintsville (1A, 2-0)- The Tigers continue to roll behind Kash Daniel (more on him later) and Ken Phelps by crushing traditional 1A power Frankfort on the road. One of the most anticipated small school clashes in the state await. 8. Southwestern (5A, 1-1)- To say the Warriors were shocked by their home loss to Bourbon County is an understatement. The Warriors squandered a big lead and even the game... Read More →

Red Devils win, Nick Conley sticks pitchfork in Musketeers again

By DevilMayCare - For the third year in a row Russell running back Nick Conley brought the Red Devils from behind in the 4th quarter to defeat Greenup Co. in their annual "Backyard Brawl".

This also marked the third year in a row that Russell entered their season opener against the Musketeers as a... Read More →

Western Kentucky Power Rankings 08-30-15

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2015 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 1 Edition - 8-30-15 The top story line this week is the emergence of the BIG 4. Bowling Green, South Warren, Mayfield and Owensboro are clearly the top 4 teams in the West this year. Does this mean any one of them can’t lose? Of course not; it means 2 weeks into the season I see all 4 as rock solid playoff contenders in their respective classes. Do I see others breaking into the Top 4? Only if one of these teams loses. Never fear other contenders, BG vs Owensboro is only 2 weeks away. Inaugural Jayvon Quarles - Week 1... Read More →

Class 3A Football Analysis for (8/30)

By gchs_uk9 - Delayed Gratification Two weeks into the season and it already seems like three teams in Class 3A are beginning to put some space between themselves and the rest of the field. #1 Belfry, who sat out opening weekend, kicked off their season with a high-scoring victory, 55-38, over Tates Creek in the Pike County Bowl. While not a vintage Pond Creek performance, especially on the defensive side, the Pirates were able to take care of a much larger opponent. With a Rebel Yell The most impressive performance in 3A this weekend likely came from #3 Boyle County who absolutely dismantled #8 ... Read More →

Class 5A Football - What you need to know - (8/30)

By Ram - Prior to the start of the season Class 5A had the making of a super-competitive class with several teams at the top that could complete with any team in the state. After two weeks of the season, that looks dramatically different with only one thing remaining consistent - Bowling Green. The #1 Purples played #9 Christian County and showed there is a huge gap between them and the rest of the class. Can anyone step up and compete with Bowling Green? Or, are the Purples going to have a cake walk to re-establishing themselves as one of the top teams in the state regardless of class? ... Read More →

The Lexington/Central KY Power Rankings – August 30, 2015. Sponsored by Jess FM 105.9

By Bluegrasscard - The Lexington / Central Kentucky Power Rankings – August 30, 2015 Sponsored by Jess FM 105.9 The Rankings 10) Bourbon County (4A / 1 – 0) Bourbon had an early off-week this week. 9) Anderson County (5A / 2 – 0) Anderson squeaked by George Rogers Clark, 27 to 26. A win is a win. But this one is less than impressive, especially since this was GRC’s first game of the season. Anderson County has Mercer, Boyle County and Franklin County the next three games. The Bearcats will need to step it up against these teams to stay on the list. Read More →

Northern Kentucky Power Rankings 08-29-2015

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 10) Lloyd Memorial (2A / 1-1) – The Juggernauts quietly posted an impressive 8-3 record last season from Erlanger. This year, they’ve started things off very well by first beating 2A rival Walton-Verona last week, and then giving the perineal 1A powerhouse Beechwood a solid game in the first half of their contest this week before the Tigers’ experience was able to overtake the Juggs in the second half as they beat Lloyd 48-22. Look for Lloyd to give 5A Grant County all they can handle this week in Dry Ridge. 9) Newport Central Catholic (2A / 0-2) – Two losses in a row to open up the 2015... Read More →

1A Notebook for Week 1

By Voice of Reason - There was certainly news in week one in 1A that will have an impact on the way this season plays out. Unfortunately it was bad news as Frankfort QB Anthony Robinson, a D1 commit to Western Ky., suffered a season ending injury. That injury has big implications for the west side of the bracket. Frankfort was already in a rebuilding mode and they were counting on Robinson to put the team on his back while the inexperienced guys caught up. Sad news for the Panthers and best wishes for a full recovery for Anthony Robinson. With Robinson knocked out of the game, the Paris Greyhounds took... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (8/24)

By DragonFire - Three out of the top 10 teams in the BGP Preseason 4A Rankings were off this week, but we got started with a marquee matchup that was perhaps disappointing if you were looking for a close battle, but it was very eye opening in regards to who might potentially represent the west in December. I am speaking of course, of the South Warren/John Hardin game at WKU. Each team is hoping that they will return to Houchen-Smith Stadium for the state finals in December, and after the first week, South Warren appears to be the clear front-runner. After a bit of a stalemate in the first quarter, South... Read More →

Louisville Area Power Ranking 08-23-15

By Bert - 1) Trinity High School (defeated Ensworth TN 45-0) – While the Ensworth team Trinity beat was not as historically strong as previous year’s teams, it is still Ensworth. So Trinity winning in such convincing fashion will keep the Rocks ranked number one. Next week, Brentwood TN 2) Male High School (defeated Floyd Central IN 41-0) – Many will say a victory over a Southern IN school is not that impressive but 41-0 is pretty impressive so Male stays #2 . Next week Ballard. This game will test how good these two top five Louisville teams are. 3) St. Xavier High School (Idle) – While X did... Read More →

Bluegrasspresps' Football Rankings 8-24-15

By Ram - Off and running, and week 1 is here! In 1A, the biggest change is Frankfort slipping from #6 to #1 0 after losing to Paris on Saturday. Will QB Anthony Robinson out with an injury, will Frankfort be able to stay in the Top 10? But questions are arising after #2 Raceland allowed two kickoff returns for touch downs. Are the Rams just shaking off the cobwebs? Or are Special Teams an Achilles heel for Raceland? Pikeville remains #5 this week, despite beating 2A Prestonsburg 43-6. Should Pikeville be ranked higher? Hard to justify when both #3 Paintsville and #4 Russellville beat 3A... Read More →

Northern Kentucky Power Rankings 08-24-15

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 10) Newport Central Catholic (2A / 0-1) – The Thoroughbreds came out sloppy and flat in their season opener last week, losing to Scott 7-8. New Cath struggled on offense, with stud running back Jacob Smith out, and junior QB Patrick Henschen struggling to find his receivers. Their defense was their definite strength in their first game, but as everyone knows, it’s offense that wins games. The Breds face a major challenge this week taking on the Cooper Jaguars this Friday. The Jags will be riding high coming off their huge win over Highlands last Friday. New Cath needs to have all their... Read More →

6A Notebook 8/23

By CoachBuckett - 6A Notebook The 2015 Kentucky High School football season kicked off with a lot of excitement across the state. We had our typical blowouts and a few nail biters. We even had a few last minute heroics. But the talk of 6A football in Kentucky is Cooper and their dominating win over Highlands. Cooper picked up the biggest win of their program Friday night and has become the talk of NKY football. Cooper was led by their QB Nathan Brown you went 7 of 18 for 186 yards with 2 touchdowns. Question for Cooper coaching staff this week, can they get refocused as they travel to take on 2A power... Read More →
