Unexpected people in unexpected places

By Jim Schue - I get this a lot, and while I'm great at remembering faces (names not so much), if I see a person in a place where I don't expect them, I get really, really thrown off. Three recent incidents: On Saturday while working at the bar, this guy came in whose face I definitely knew, but hadn't seen him for a long, long time. He was feeling the same thing, and asked my name before I could introduce myself. Turned out it was the eldest son of a gal I used to work with my two summers at Big Bone Lick SP. She was a teacher in her regular life, but she worked at the park in recreation one... Read More → 2015 Pre-Season Football Rankings

By theguru - There is excitement in the air with Mayfield moving up in class. And Beechwood, historically a Class 1A contender, find themselves in the #1 spot to begin the 2015 season. Will the Tigers finally deliver? The Raceland Rams follow at #2 with Paintsville nipping at their heals at #3 . Paintsville must be anxious for a rematch of the 2014 playoff round 3 game, which Raceland won. Throw Pikeville in the mix at #5 and the east looks strong. Defending 2A 2014 State Champions, DeSales rank #2 in the 2015 pre-season rankings. Mayfiield, the 2014 Defending 1A Champion moves up in class and takes... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 6A Pre-Season Preview

By Ram - Bluegrasspreps' Class 6A Pre-Season Preview The question everyone asks every year when we begin to discuss Kentucky Football’s largest classification: Is anyone going to challenge the Trinity Shamrocks? Last season it looked like Trinity was on the ropes and Jefferson County public schools would stake claim to the title with the Male Bulldogs knocking off the Shamrocks in the regular season. Male’s claim to the top spot didn’t last long as Trinity claimed their 23rd State Title. One thing we will have fun doing over the next 5 months is discussing many topics: Lafayette’s talented...

Bluegrasspeps' Class 5A Pre-Season Preview

By Ram - Bluegrasspreps’ Class 5A Pre-Season Preview For the last several years, Class 5A was dominated by Bowling Green. This year Class 5A got a whole lot more interesting with two teams that won State Championships in 2014 and one that had won three in the last four years and had a great run 49 consecutive wins end a year ago. What does 2015 hold for Class 5A? There’s a chance a regular State Champion will dominate, but which one? Two dominate teams from last season will be disappointed. Which ones? The Top 10 1. Highlands (13-2; 4A State Champions) There are two people in Fort Thomas... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 4A Pre-Season Preview

By Ram - Bluegrasspreps' Class 4A Pre-Season Preview Ah, good ole reliable 4A. For years under the six class system we’ve pretty much known what to expect from this class. A champion from the east (7 of the 8 champions came from the eastern side of the bracket), and a champion that was an established power (the same 7 of 8 had all previously won a state title). In the past four years it became an almost afterthought that Highlands would win the title, with only the stunning loss to Collins in 2013 bucking that trend. But all of that has changed. Realignment has created in 4A the opportunity... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 3A Pre-Season Preview

By Ram - Bluegrasspreps' Class 3A Pre-Season Preview Since the KHSAA made the decision to move to six classes prior to the 2007 season many have viewed Class 3A as the weakest class. Sure Central was dominant and Belfry was terrific, Breathitt County had some success, Paducah Tilghman won a title out of seemingly nowhere, and there were a handful of other good clubs. But now the winds of change are blowing. Welcome to 3A Boyle County and Lexington Catholic. Same to you Bardstown and Caldwell County. You'll be joining a Belfry program that may be better than it has ever been and a... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 2A Pre-Season Preview

By Ram - Bluegrasspreps' Class 2A Pre-Season Preview The Wild, Wild, West just got little crazier. Anytime the KHSAA adopts a new alignment there is a chance for chaos and shuffling of teams, particularly in the smaller classes. Class 2A somehow managed to remain relatively intact, losing only Bardstown and Caldwell County of notable stature. The heavy hitters are all back including defending State Champion DeSales and Runner-Up Newport Central Catholic .The buzz though in 2015 is not going to be about who left the class… but rather who joined and how stacked the side of the bracket is they will...

Bluegrasspreps' Class 1A Pre-Season Preview

By Ram - Bluegrasspreps' Class 1A Pre-Season Preview The King is Dead, Long Live the King? The major change redistricting brought to 1A is a big one. Three time defending champion Mayfield is now in 2A. Many believe that opens the path to a title for the 2nd most dominating team in 1A in the 6 class era – Beechwood. The Tigers could not get past Mayfield over the past 5 years but the only other team in 1A that has a win over Beechwood in the 6 class era is Frankfort. Don’t expect it to be that clear cut! There are quality, winning programs in 1A who think the Mayfield move opens the door for... Read More →

NKY Soccer Preview

By hoops5 - The Bluegrass Games are behind us. Soccerama is around the corner. Is Northern Kentucky ready for some soccer? One theme seems to echo across the region---lots of teams lost many good seniors. However, that does not necessarily mean that their team is down. Strong programs fill it right back up. So which teams took a big hit? Which teams will make a run? Which teams are dark horses? Yellow Card and I thought we would get the conversation started with our preseason rankings. We would love to hear your thoughts as well. Here we go! 1. Covington Catholic- Because this is where CCH is... Read More →

Louisville and Surrounding Area Top 10 Power Rankings 7-29-15

By Bert - 1) Trinity High School - I argued with myself about number one and number two for days. I finally settled on Trinity because well, they're Trinity and over the past decade and a half have shown the ability to come back on top numerous times so until proven wrong, they will enter the preseason in this poll as the top ranked team. 2) Male High School - Number one and two could easily be flip flopped due to the immense talent Male has. Recent UofL signee Wakefield is incredible and could be a deciding factor in close games for the Bulldogs. Male was ranked #2 because in the past several... Read More →

2015 Highlands Girls Soccer preview

By PsalmsG - It may not be fair to compare. But when it comes to the Highlands Ladybirds soccer program, many think of the likes of past great players like Sydney Hiance, Caitlin Beck, Leslie Twehues, Alicia Browning-Gesenhues, Kara Dickerson-O'Hearn, Megan Leahy, Amber Barth-Wells and Mallory Adler. Those greats among others helped the program on its impressive run of 80-11-11 between the 2005 and 2008 seasons. Highlands captured back-to-back state championships in 2005 and 2006 and a state runner-up crown in 2008 during that time. While the current players can't be them, they've been trying to...

Lexington / Central Kentucky Top 10 Power Rankings 7-27-15

By Bluegrasscard - Lexington / Central Kentucky Top 10 Power Rankings - Preseason Traditionally when one thinks of Central Kentucky high school football the discussion was usually around the smaller schools of the area. 2A Danville and 3A Boyle County alone can dominate the conversation. And these two teams will continue to be topics of conversation in 2015 as Danville builds upon an 8 and 4 record last year. Boyle County was 11 and 2 in Chuck Smiths first year of his return as the head coach of Boyle County. Smith will have a lots of seniors on this year’s team lead by QB Josiah Robbins. Smith...
