Bullitt Central has been on the move upwards over the past few seasons. Dan Leasor and Tye Lawson got the momentum going, and Matt Kuehn has done a remarkable job of continuing the upward climb with three straight winning seasons. Overall, five consecutive winning seasons has the Cougars on the right track.


But BC's kryptonite is South Oldham. Since defeating South in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs in 2010, 28-21 - Jamie Reed's first season as head coach at South Oldham - the Cougars have lost eight straight to the Dragons, and the last four games haven't been close:


2015 South Oldham 43-13

2016 South Oldham 39-7

2017 South Oldham 42-7

2018 South Oldham 70-14


Meanwhile, South is on a decade-long run that has them as a perennial top-10 team in Class 5A. The Dragons are among the five winningest teams in Class 5A over the last four seasons, winning 44 games during that span; South has reached the Class 5A semi-finals twice in the past three years. Since taking the reins of the Dragons in 2010, Jamie Reed has yet to have a losing season as he has moved to the head of the class as the all-time winningest coach in Crestwood.


South Oldham QB Anthony Pierce has yet to throw a TD pass, but he's connecting on 50% of his passes and Ethan Bednarczyk is already on pace for 30 or more receptions on the year. South rebounded last week against Eastern with a strong running performance; the Dragons showed big-play ability with the ground attack as JT Benson rushed for 117 yards on only 4 carries and Trey Garrison had a 79 yard run. Luke Clark and Ethan Devasier lead South with 15 and 14 tackles, respectively. Defensively, the Dragon's have been hawkish against the pass, seven different players have picked off a pass in just two games.


South and Bullitt Central both come into the game 1-1 on the season; both lost to highly ranked teams. South fell in week 1 to Class 3A #1 CAL, 6-0, in overtime. BC fell last week to powerhouse Boyle County, 56-7.


BC has not updated their stats on Kentucky High School Athletic Association | KHSAA – Student-athletes of Today, Leaders of Tomorrow, but they did post their game 1 stats from their game against Seneca. Kylor Close carried the ball 18 times against Seneca for a whopping 339 yards and 3 TDs; on defense, Aaron Hornback snagged three interceptions.


South has to be the favorite to continue their streak against Bullitt Central at home in Crestwood in front of the Dragon faithful, but you play 'em on the field...
