Bluegrasspreps' Class 4A Playoff Preview

By DragonFire - Class 4A Region 1 Region 1 may be the most competitive among the top teams of any region in the class. Three teams in the top 5 hail from the region, including the defending state champion South Warren Spartans. Coming into the year, the general impression was that South Warren would simply reload and mow down everyone just as they had done the previous season. And they did reload, just not quite to the same level. The Spartans have put up a solid 7-3 record, but the cracks started to appear immediately, with a lackluster first half against an Apollo team that missed the playoffs,... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 1A Playoff Preview

By Voice of Reason - No class in the state may be more up for grabs than 1A. There are 5, perhaps even 6, teams that have a very legitimate argument that they can win this title. Here is how we see the playoff battle unfolding in 1A. Region 1 Russellville seized the opportunity presented last year with the move of Mayfield to 2A and took the Region 1 championship. Many of the key players from that team returned this year determined to take the next step and move on to a state championship game. It has been an impressive season for the Panthers. They marched through their schedule undefeated and virtually... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 2A Playoff Preview

By ATLCat - REGION I It is only fitting that when you begin to preview the teams in Class 2A moving from West to East, the top of the bracket begins with District 1 Champion Mayfield as the very first team on the bracket. The Cardinals have grown accustomed to being on top and as they begin their Class 2A Title Defense, they enter as the favorite. Mayfield has put the finishing touches on a 10-0 season and should hold court at home the first two rounds with limited resistance. The law firm of Bright, Arnett, & Lumson has lit up scoreboards all season and will continue their path of destruction... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 5A Playoff Preview

By JDEaston - Region 1 This is by far the toughest region in class 5A top to bottom, with four of the class 5A top five teams residing within the region. That said, there is still a clear cut favorite to win the region. Bowling Green is simply a machine, posting a 10-0 regular season record, including a 5-0 record versus region one teams. As impressive as that is, the Purples left no doubt about who the best team in the region is by putting a running clock on all of their region one opponents. The Purples ultimately outscored their region one foes 250-22, which is a mind blowing stat considering three... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 3A Playoff Preview

By Ram - REGION I Class 3A - Region I has a 2016 bracket almost identical to the one from 2015 and if things go as predicted it will have the same end result. While this season hasn't produced the quality of teams as last season, there are still four potential challengers for the region crown. Caldwell County (6-4) has spent much of the season ranked near the top of the class and are the District 1 champions, although the Tigers struggled to win against superior competition (falling to Christian County, Franklin-Simpson, North Hardin, and Mayfield). Expect an easy first round victory over Hart... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (10/25)

By Ram - Class 1A Sometimes the biggest games do not live up to the hype, but Paintsville and Raceland did just that before the Tigers prevailed in Overtime. Kentucky Country Day remains one of Class 1A's hottest teams with a win over Frankfort. The biggest surprise of the night came as the Bracken County Polar Bears ended Nicholas County's undefeated run. Russellville will look to cap off a 10-0 season but will have to overcome a stout Franklin-Simpson team. Beechwood will look to claim Northern Kentucky small school superiority against Newport Catholic. 1. Paintsville vs. 2A Shelby Valley 2.... Read More →

1A Notebook 10/25 - Big Tuneups

By Voice of Reason - Last Week District play has wrapped up and week 11 is here. The final week of district play was a little anti-climatic as most district champions were already decided. However, we did have two big games with district titles at stake and both were instant classics. First we will discuss Nicholas County at Bracken County. Nicolas County traveled to the Polar Bears den undefeated and full of confidence. And why not? The Bluejackets had handled district challenger Bishop Brossart, a team that defeated Bracken County by 3 touchdowns. Nicholas County had that top seed, district title and... Read More →

By JDEaston - With the leaves turning color and beginning to fall, as well as crisp nights and near perfect football weather, that tell’s me one thing, ‘tis this season. Playoff season that is. After one of the most action packed weeks thus far in class 5A, most teams around the class are getting one last game in this week to prepare for the playoffs. Last week was full of district matchups that ultimately decided several district championships with Bowling Green, Covington Catholic, Owensboro, Southwestern, and South Oldham among the winners. This week the focus changes to teams from other classes around... Read More →
