KHSAA shuts down KY High School Football Playoffs until Further Notice - Playoff Brackets Posted 11-13-20
The KHSAA notified member schools this morning that the start of the football playoffs will be delayed one week in an effort to provide schools and school systems time to review their situations and work with their health departments to determine the best course of action. The first round of the playoffs will now take place the weekend of Nov. 19-21 with no additional planned changes in the playoff structure at this point in time.

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (11/11)
In lieu of the weekly update (because frankly, hardly anyone played last week and no one is playing this week), we'll use this opportunity to pause and take a look at some of this year's more prominent Mr. Football candidates and take the temperature of the room here, so to speak, with a BGP poll.

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (11/3)
A Tiger devours his prey in a clash of NKY blue bloods. The Pirate ship is sunk by a 21 gun salute from JC, but Belfry's star leaves his mark. E'town's field general keeps an 0 in the loss and turnover columns. And the "Wayne County Wonder" has a field day after a fortnight off.

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (10/27)
A Flyer gets his wings clipped in a clash of top five teams. Inclement weather can't deter a streaking Comet in Florence. A Rock rolls his way back onto the watchlist. And a pair of eastern Kentucky standouts make the most of their opportunities in blowouts to set the stage for a Mr. Football showcase game in Paintsville.

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (10/20)
The Franklin County aerial circus returns to action, and promptly puts two Flyers back on the Mr. Football radar. Johnson Central's one man scoring machine keeps up his preposterous pace for another week, while a blue Colonel's legs help keep CovCath grounded against an archrival. And Somerset's field general can't jump quite as high as Eagles can fly.

Highlands at Covington Catholic Predictions/Updates
"Pride week," "rivalry week," "the game week"...the name may switch depending on which program you support and which team your big rival is, but the message is the same: it is THE big one when it comes to the regular season schedule. During my days playing at Cov Cath, it was "Highlands week," but what made that even more distinct was that we may have had a different opponent the week before, but the week before, that usually just felt like "the week before Highlands week". The Highlands game was the game we were locked in on from the time we started putting on any helmets or pads in the spring.

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (10/13)
Two of the state's best hooked up in Pike County, with both reaffirming their status as watchlist regulars. Last year's 4A finals MVP continues his scoring spree, and a Wayne County wonder returns to the field after a week off. Plus, one of the nation's best offensive linemen helps spur the Broncos to a stampede in Lexington.

Somerset vs. Lexington Christian Academy Predictions/Updates ***Upset Alert***
Here's what matters: The Jumpers and Eagles have been the two best teams in 2A all season. They've been less like #1 and #2, and more like #1 and 1A. They met twice last year, with LCA winning the first game and Somerset claiming the one that mattered most to win the district, en route to a state title. Both games were edge-of-your-seat affairs, decided by three total points. With another district championship rematch likely in the works for November, this week's game could serve as a dress rehearsal at times, as both teams feel each other out in anticipation of what may lie ahead.

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (10/6)
A running back dominated field highlights this week's watchlist. Pond Creek's show-stopping Pirate and Olive Hill's dazzling Comet continue to wow spectators, and a trio of 6A super backs set fire to scoreboards in Louisville, Owensboro, and Brandenburg. Meanwhile, what was already a thin crop of quarterbacks continues to dwindle.

Class 2A

Owensboro Catholic fans will tell you 2019 was not expected. The Aces have emerged as a 2A fixture over the years, so a disappointing campaign ending with a 2nd Round loss to McLean County certainly left a sour taste in their mouths. The Aces avenged that loss in dominating fashion and are now one of the fastest risers in Class 2A, if they can somehow upset powerhouse rival Owensboro, they then become a team in the running for the title. Lexington Christian Academy also has a chance to make a move. The Eagles are setting themselves up for a monster RPI value, adding a win over 6A Dunbar most recently, and a last minute addition of Frederick Douglass gives them all the ammo to make the move to the top of the class. Beechwood knows how tough 6A teams can be as they need to rebound quickly after 6A Dixie Heights bested them. Somerset won convincingly over 1A Hazard but did not look sharp, they need to get their bearings together as Danville looks for the first statement in that grueling district. Breathitt County was pushed by Middlesboro but held on to take the catbird seat in their district. For an under the radar game to take note, Lloyd Memorial and Newport seem to be evenly matched and neither want to fall out of District contention.

Class 5A

In the eagerly awaited "Showdown at the El", South Warren and Bowling Green engaged in a minimalist war of attrition between top five teams. The Spartans emerged victorious in a game that told us little about either side, other than they enjoy getting after each other. Let the sabre rattling commence for the inevitable district championship rematch. With the Purples going down, Covington Catholic returns to the top spot, though the Colonels are still struggling to find the polish that's been a staple of theirs in the recent championship seasons. CovCath has a week off to do some fine tuning before hosting a Highlands team that turned back the clock about ten years and drubbed previously ranked Conner...

A somewhat ho-hum week in Class 3A was upended when Rockcastle County knocked off #3 Bell County, 13-7. Rockcastle's defensive effort was superb as Christopher Mink intercepted two Bell County passes and Rylee Deleon recovered a fumble. The win snapped a nine game series losing streak for the Rockets dating back to 2006 and with the win propelled Rockcastle into the Top Ten for the first time this season...

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (9/29)
A pair of standout running backs return to the fold after some time away from the watchlist, while a couple of NKY signal callers had big statistical nights in comfortable wins. A "Title Town" QB continues to show he belongs, and a record setting ball carrier produces big again, in defeat.
