Class 4A Notebook (9/11): Tiger Down

By DragonFire - If it seems like just a week ago we were bullish on #5 Hopkinsville’s season, it’s because it was just a week ago. The Tigers grabbed a win over Caldwell County, who themselves had already beaten Christian County, Hopkinsville’s next opponent. It seemed possible, even probable, that Hoptown would grab a win over their rival, challenge historical rival Paducah Tilghman, and springboard into district play. That’s all done now. After Hopkinsville started with a 7-0 lead over Christian County, they found themselves behind 8-7 at the half. Then came the season changer – QB Javier Bland... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 9/10- The 2A Stock Report

By ATLCat - Stock Report Now that the dust has settled after four weeks, The Notebook will determine how the stocks of some of the Top 2A Programs are doing and what kind of advisement we might have for the market in it's current state. DeSales- Stock Up, Blue Chip The Colts have done everything asked of them and then some moving to the top spot with their early season work. The Colt Offense is getting the job done and the Defense remains stout as expected. Even with a big battle with CAL looming, a loss does not necessarily mean you will be out in the cold. Take my word, this is a very robust stock... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (9/10)

By Ram - Class 1A It was a separation Friday in Class 1A with some huge games helping to sort the pack. Beechwood may have lost to 3A Corbin, but they still proved they are one of the better small school teams in the State. Pikeville put everyone on alert by dominating Paintsville. Both the Tigers and Panthers take it up yet another notch this week drawing perhaps both team's stiffest regular season opponent. Raceland needed two days to put away a solid 4A Greenup County and Hazard came up short against 2A Somerset. The biggest game featuring two 1A teams will be Paintsville travelling to... Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (9/9): Spartan Statement

By DevilMayCare - No one is crowning South Warren as the kings of Warren County or 5A just yet. There is still much work to be done. But you've got to admit, the Spartans bludgeoning of Central Hardin has added a new dimension to the optics of the Warren County/5A landscape. Central Hardin gave Bowling Green all they could handle in Week 0. The Purples held a three score lead at the half, but failed to put the Bruins away. Central Hardin put a couple of touchdowns on the board in the 2nd half to make it a one possession game, and actually had the ball with a chance to either tie it up or even take the lead...

The Male defense was the highlight of the evening, holding the Rocks to just three points, the lowest point total in Bob Beatty's tenure, and the lowest point total since 1998. Male will travel to 4A Western this week. 2. 2A Christian Academy - Louisville (4-0) The Centurions made a quick trip down I-65 to visit... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (9/5): No Waves This Week

By DragonFire - Last week #1 Johnson Central lost the initiative to keep the top ranking, putting them at the mercy of Franklin-Simpson’s result against South Warren. This week the ball is squarely back in Johnson Central’s court. As has frequently been the case in the last two years, 4A has been knocked around by the elite of other classes this season. Teams in the 4A top 10 have played five games against teams in the top 5 of other classes – they’re 1-4 with Ashland’s win over Raceland the lone win for the class. This week it was South Warren’s turn again to light up a 4A top team, putting another... Read More →
