Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-14

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 7-1)- The Eagles have navigated their regular season swimmingly. All that is left is arguably their two biggest games. Undefeated Ashland and rival Belfry. 2. Ashland Tomcats (4A, 9-0)- The only thing standing in the way of Ashland's pursuit of a flawless 10-0 regular season is #1 Johnson Central on the road. Folks this one may be the biggest game in the History of this contentious rivalry. 3. Corbin Redhounds (3A, 7-1)- The Hounds get the bump after taking care of business against undefeated rival bell County. Corbin still is not out of the woods... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 10/14- Sorting Out the Playoff Picture

By ATLCat - District 1 Mayfield is the #1 team in the State so it lends itself the Cardinals have essentially locked down another District Title. Technically, this week's Ballard Memorial and Murray game is left to define the 2-seed, but we can go ahead and pencil Murray in as the 2-seed. Ballard Memorial defeated Webster County head to head so the Bombers will claim the 3-spot unless they pull the shocking upset. Projected Finish: 1. Mayfield 2. Murray 3. Ballard Memorial 4. Webster County Read More →


NKY Power Rankings: 10-11-18

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (7-0) – The Colonels headed up to Indianapolis on Friday to take on IN-3A Bishop Chatard (6-2), and came home with an important 52-36 win over the Trojans. The Colonels had their hands full at halftime, but were able to pull away in the second half, thanks largely to sophomore Caleb Jacob’s phenomenal work at QB. Caleb was 19-30 passing for 385yds and 3 TDs. WR Jack Coldiron stacked up 145yds and 1 TD receiving, and TE Michael Mayer added 129yds and 2 TDs receiving, while RB Casey McGinness came in strong, as always, with 158yds rushing for 2 TDs.

1A Notebook 10/10 - District Crunch Time

By Voice of Reason - This week is a big week in the district football races. This week’s games are going to go a long way toward deciding district titles and in setting home field advantage in the playoffs. More than likely about half the district winners will be known this week but there are some districts that are going to go down to the last week of district play to decide the winner. Let’s take a look at each district and where things stand. Class 1A, District 1 ..... Overall .....District Crittenden County ........ 6-1 ....... 1-0 Russellville .................. 3–4 ....... 1-0 Fulton County... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Lexington/Central Kentucky Power Rankings 10-10-18

By PurplePride92 - We have reached the point of the season we were all waiting for. First Henry Clay gets us there early by defeating Scott County. Then we get the long awaited matchup between Frederick Douglass and Scott County and Frederick Douglass showed that they are worthy of being called the best team in the Lexington/Central Kentucky Area. Now this week we have the ultra heated district rivalry matchup between Boyle County and Lexington Catholic. And then next week we get Frederick Douglass against Henry Clay. This is football overload right now because these are the best teams in the area but once you... Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (10/9): Where Are the Upsets?

By DragonFire - In the several years that I've been writing about 4A, it has just been stupid how inconsistent the class is. In the past five years, there have been five different schools that won the state title. Almost every time you think you know something, you find out that you were completely wrong. In 2015, we knew Johnson Central was the best team. In 2016, we knew South Warren was going to repeat. Last year, we knew Johnson Central was going to repeat. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. I've gotten used to everything being unpredictable. Yet here we are, entering our fourth straight week with the exact... Read More →


6A Notebook 10/8: Clear Cut #2?

By Bac2369 - Clear Cut #2 This was a short week for several high school football teams with some Thursday night action. The 6A Football Class had four match-ups on Thursday, starting with the Male, Butler, Trinity, and Henry Clay. #1 Male traveled to Bryan Station to continue its perfect season. Male made quick work of this contest, getting the 57-28 win. #4 Butler was also on the road this week, but just a quick trip to Pleasure Ridge Park for a district match-up. Butler also made quick work of Pleasure Ridge Park. Chaz Burks threw for 208 yards and 4 touchdowns. Noted as well, Jordan Watkins... Read More →


Louisville Power Rankings 10/8

By TheDeuce - 1. 6A Male (8-0) The Bulldogs traveled to Lexington last week looking to continue their winning ways, and did just that. Male defeated 6A Bryan Station 57-28. At first glance, it would seem as if Station had some success against the stingy Male defense, but the score was 57-8 at the break, and the majority of Station's points were scored on reserves. Male will host 6A Saint Xavier this week to determine the winner of the district. 2. 2A Christian Academy - Louisville (7-0) They had to wait seven weeks, but CAL finally got the signature win they'd likely had circled since August,...

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/8)

By Ram - Class 1A The story last week was a few of the teams outside of the usual suspects. Kentucky Country Day rallied to get a huge District victory over Louisville Holy Cross and now take the driver's seat position in the race to November. Lynn Camp kept their undefeated hopes alive by making short work of Pineville. The Wildcats now only have Harlan standing in their way of a monster showdown with Williamsburg looming. Hazard and Paintsville felt little resistance this past week and will draw each other in a non-district game that should still have major ramifications. 1. Beechwood at... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (10/7): CovCath's Stars Shine Bright

By DevilMayCare - The fact that Bishop Chatard, the top team in Indiana's Class 3A, pushed Covington Catholic (7-0) more than anyone has in a season and a half should come as a surprise to no one. The Trojans are a very, very good football team. However, the 36 points and 421 yards of offense that the Colonels allowed in victory may have raised some eyebrows. Not since Fern Creek scored 35 on CovCath in the 2016 semifinals has anyone lit up the scoreboard against the Colonels like Chatard did. One way to counter those numbers is to put up some gaudy ones of your own; 52>36 and 573>421. The trio of Casey... Read More →


Western Kentucky Power Rankings - October 7, 2018

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2018 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 8 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, The BYE Week Cometh!!! Six of the Top 12 Teams (or 50%) are on their BYE Week! Most teams try and schedule the BYE for this time of year as injuries do mount up for many teams! Do you think some teams are better at utilizing the BYE week when compared to the rest of the pack? I would say there are definitely teams that have a routine down that they feel pays off for them. And there are others that probably just WING IT! Just like in many other facets of the game, this is... Read More →

By gchs_uk9 - Lexington Catholic Comes From Behind to Topple Western Hills For the second year in a row Lexington Catholic and Western Hills traded blows all night before Catholic finally picked up the victory, besting the Wolverines, 49-42, on Friday night.

It wasn't be enough, however, as fifth-ranked Lexington Catholic, behind star junior quarterback Beau Allen's 203 yards... Read More →


Bowling Green Purples next opponent; Warren Central Indianapolis - by the numbers...

By Purple Nation - Although the Purples get a bye week tonight, I went ahead and looked at some interesting numbers that I found on Maxpreps. I understand that polls, such as Maxpreps, is simply a estimation, it still shows how impressive this team out of Indy really is. After 7 games, both the Purples and Warren Central are undefeated (Warren Central plays their toughest team to date, tonight - Carmel) The seven teams that the Purples has faced has an average national ranking of 5,634 The seven teams that Warren Central Indy has faced has a average national ranking of 1,602 Warren Central QB Jayden...

BluegrassPreps Central Kentucky Power Rankings 10-4-18

By PurplePride92 - Well, well, well. It finally happened. And it happened right here in the Central Kentucky Area. Henry Clay defeated Scott County. No, Henry Clay smacked Scott County 51-27 last weekend and sent Kentucky High School football fans in a state of shock as a result. That is The Story of the season so far as Scott County was considered to be at least a top 3-5 team overall in the state and Henry Clay hasn’t even been considered one of the top 5 teams in the Central Kentucky Area. That changes now. It’s clear Scott County isn’t who we thought they were and it is also clear that Henry Clay’s tough... Read More →
