Welcome Back Danville and the Title Town Rivalry

Not since "The Walking Dead" has a better story of coming back from the dead reigned! Danville looked good in Week 0 and looked great in Week 1 by demolishing 4A Rockcastle County 46-18. The Ads have a nice mix of athletes and Defensive playmakers and a buzz is emanating. Up next is rival Boyle County who coincidentally also appears to be "up" and for the first time in several years all eyes will be on "Title Town" for the renewal of one of the State's iconic rivalries.


NewCath's Offensive Offense

Newport Central Catholic's schedule is no joke and entering the 2015 season it was clear that the Breds could easily drop 5 games and still be a State Title Contender. A veteran Defense had high hopes and for the most part has held it's own through two games, but the NewCath offense continues to struggle for an identity. The Breds have managed just 7 points through two games and has only mustered a paltry average of 125 total yards per game. NewCath thusfar has desperately missed star Senior RB Jacob Smith has missed both games and his return is paramount this week against Campbell County


Holy Cow! Holy Cross?

Covington Holy Cross was among the 2A powerhouses for a couple seasons before falling hard and fast. After struggling it seems CHC may be back in the mix after starting 2-0 and defeating Walton-Verona 28-14 on the road. The schedule stiffens drastically, but with the NKY districts so wide open in 2A it is worth keeping an eye on this team to see if they can make noise once the temperatures cool.


Williamsburg: The EKY Litmus Test

The 1A State Runner-UP Yellowjackets were hit hard by graduation and do not appear to be a major player for the 1A race... but their role in 2A in the early season has been critical for those hoping to establish a measuring stick, particularly in Region 4. The Yellowjackets first three games have been against LCA, Somerset, and Leslie County. They also will take on Middlesboro at the end of the season. For those who take stock in common opponents be ready to help sort a very tight Region thanks to the Jackets.


Will the Butler Do It?

In the Bluegrasspreps.com Pre-Season 2A Preview the staff specifically called out Butler County as a team to watch and through two weeks the Bears have lived up to the billing "playing up" for a pair of convincing wins. Butler County hosts a highly ranked 1A Russellville in perhaps one of the biggest Non-District matchups in the School's Recent history. If the Bears can win it will most likely result in a Top 10 ranking and a ton of momentum as they head toward a matchup with Owensboro Catholic on 9-25.
