Class 4A Football Notebook (10/5): Finally An Upset

By DragonFire - FINALLY. We finally have an interesting, unexpected result to talk about. After weeks of static ranks and expected results, we got a curveball this week. That came courtesy of Collins, which whitewashed #4 Franklin County 23-0. Perhaps it was the rain. Perhaps Collins took it a bit personally that they’d slipped out of the top 10 after falling to Spencer County the previous week. Whatever it was, it was an interesting result that shook up that district race and the rankings. Franklin County entered the game averaging 41 points per game and had not scored less than 20 points in a game... Read More →

THE RANKINGS: 10) Lloyd Memorial (2A / 4-2) – The Juggernauts hosted 6A Conner this Friday, and lost in a nasty, cold, and rainy game after a 4th quarter touchdown pass by the Cougars.

Class 6A Notebook/ District Breakdown

By CoachBuckett - District play has started for a few of the 6A districts while others will begin play this week. We will take a quick look at some key games in each district. And preview possible finish. District 1 Season didn’t start how Henderson County wanted it too as they started off on a 1-4 start. But since then has won back to back games and currently tide for the top spot with McCracken County. McCracken County has ran off six straight wins after starting the season with a loss. Key Games: • 10/09- Henderson Co. @ McCracken County Predicted District Champion: McCracken County Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (10/5) - The Status Quo

By Ram - Not many surprises in Class 5A this week. There was only one loss by the Top 10 teams, #6 Christian County fell to #3 Owensboro, not exactly unexpected. #1 Bowling Green cruised as expected, as did the other Top 10 teams. This past week, actually only saw one loss by the top 15 teams in Class 5A, the aforementioned Christian County loss. Bowling Green, coming off a lopsided win, will have the week off preparing for another run to the Championship Game. But, in the way of that goal, is two quality teams: Greenwood and McCracken County. Will the Purples run the table on the regular... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (10/5)

By Ram - It would appear our rankings staff has its stuff together in ranking Class 1A. The only change this week is the Campbellsville dropping to #7 this week after losing in a big way to Class 2A #5 Danville. Paris takes over the #6 spot after drubbing Bracken County last week. There are 4 teams that have byes this week, so big wins or losses should prove to make next week’s rankings debates interesting. This week was an easy one for our Class 2A rankings staff. There are no changes in the top ten from last week. DeSales continues its reign at #1 after trouncing 6A North Hardin 41-7. Mayfield’s... Read More →


Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 10/04/15

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2015 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 6 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week: What is the meaning of District? D – District games matter most! I – Is October the Month that means the most in preparing for the playoffs? S – Schedules – does a tough early schedule prepare teams best for the playoffs or just yield a boat load of injuries that are a liability in District play and beyond? T – Try to gain better team chemistry and home field advantage for the playoffs! R – Refocus, as it’s a new season; the most important season so far! I – Ill Will! –... Read More →


Louisville Area Power Rankings 10-4-15

By Bert - 1) Male High School (7-0, defeated PRP 44-0) – About what I was expecting. Next week versus St. X should be a pretty good match up for Male. 2) Trinity High School (6-1, defeated St. X 20-15) – Nice win for Trinity is huge rivalry, just too many mistakes by the long snapper giving X points. Next week versus Eastern, Should be a snoozer of a game and a good week to fix weaknesses discovered in the St. X game. 3) St. Xavier High School (4-2, defeated by Trinity 20-15) – St. X had a very difficult time moving the ball. With the exception of one drive, Trinity gifted points to X. X needs... Read More →


Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-4-15

By ATLCat - 10. Corbin (3A, 4-3)- Redhounds pummel hapless Jackson County and move to a BYE. The path to Pineville gets a little more anxious. 9. Pikeville (1A, 5-2)- Panthers secure a huge 56-28 win over District rival Hazard and all but lock up the District Title. The next few weeks should allow for rest before a playoff push. 8. Bell County (3A, 5-1)- Bobcats continue to push forward after their early season spill against 3A's best team. Bobcats get one last challenge to gear up for Corbin travelling to a solid Campbell County, TN team. 7. North Laurel (5A, 7-0)- Jags just continue to win by... Read More →


3A Notebook - Pirates Sink, Devils Stunned, and Two Unknown Unbeatens

By gchs_uk9 - Belfry Undone by Turnovers, Cabell-Midland One thirty-second advertisement for this year's Super Bowl will cost around $5 million. For Belfry on Friday night, thirty seconds might not have cost them millions, but it probably did cost them the game. On a night when seemingly nothing could go right at West Virginia powerhouse Cabell-Midland, the Pirates were still in the ball game just before halftime, trailing 21-7 but driving. However, an interception with 1:30 left gave Cabell-Midland the ball and they scored with 32 seconds on the clock to make the lead 28-7. Belfry then fumbled the... Read More →


Panthers on the prowl

By DevilMayCare - As most of you are aware, it rained on Friday. It rained in the morning. It rained in the afternoon. It rained at night. Football fields all across eastern Kentucky, and for that matter, the eastern United States, were a soggy mess. But we're not going to let a little rain ruin our Friday night football, are we? I'll bet the Russell Red Devils woke up this morning wishing all this rain would wash away the memories of last night's loss to district foe Fleming Co. The Panthers walked into Henry R. Evans Stadium a considerable underdog in the eyes of most. They walked out with an 18-7... Read More →


1A Notebook 9/29/15 - Districts Preview Time

By Voice of Reason - We have reached that point in the season when district play begins. Teams have played their pre-district schedule and hopefully have prepared themselves for district play. Let's take a look at the new districts and who we think the winners will be in each district. I am listing each district's teams in the order of expected finish. District 1 Russellville ... 5-1 Crittenden County ... 4-2 Fulton City ... 1-5 Fulton County ... 0-6 Russellville is ranked in the top 5 in 1A and is the clear favorite in this district. It was looking like Crittenden County might be a solid challenger but... Read More →


Louisville Area Power Ranking 9-28-15

By Bert - 1) Male High School (6-0, defeated Butler 57-0) – Another pounding by Male. Next week versus PRP should be a little better, well just a little better. 2) Trinity High School (5-1, defeated Jeffersontown 51-0) – Fairly predictable. Next week versus X, Trinity will be favored but this is a game that could escape them like last year or I could see Trinity winning by multiple touch downs. 3) St. Xavier High School (4-1, defeated PRP 21-13) – Was not expecting this to be such a close game. If this X team or the one that lost to Central shows up Friday against Trinity, X will lose by... Read More →


Class 4A Football Notebook (9/27): This Class Needs Some Chaos

By DragonFire - It seems like many of our 4A headlines are about the relative lack of movement in the class and ranks, and this week is no different. The class has by and large stabilized, with only minor movements. The top four in the rankings has remained the same since Week 1. Scott has now nestled into the 5th spot, and spends their second straight week there. In all, nine of the top ten teams remained the same, and seven of them are in the exact same spot this week. The closest we came to introducing a bit of instability came via District 4, which had four of our top ten teams last week. #4 ... Read More →
