BluegrassPreps Class 4A Football Rankings (10/26) - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Class 4A

In a week with three marquee matchups on paper, only one lived up to its billing. Johnson Central continued to look every bit the #1 team that they are in a 62-0 blowout of Letcher County Central. The Golden Eagles needed only 21 rushes to rack up 331 yards on the ground with five touchdowns.  Meanwhile, Mr. Football candidate Braedon Sloan sat out Wayne County's matchup with Corbin, and the Redhounds ran right over Wayne County in a 43-6 victory.  That left #4 Central vs. #3 Franklin County.  Franklin County held a 9-6 lead at the half and 16-6 after three, but they would not score again.  Central converted a pair of fourth down conversions on a drive to start the fourth, drawing within 16-12 after a Duncan 9 yard TD run.  The Flyers turned it over on downs in Central territory with 3:42 left, and the Jackets converted on 4th and 1 at the 3 with 8.3 seconds left on a Williams run, sealing the 18-16 win. The win means a flip in our rankings with Central moving to #3 and means the likely rematch in November will be in Louisville.  Elsewhere, Logan County and Knox Central move back into the rankings.  Logan County toughed out a 14-6 victory over Calloway County in the difficult District 1, while Knox Central took their spot back from Lincoln County with a dominating 42-22 win. The games to watch this week are Johnson Central vs. 3A Belfry and Corbin at 2A Somerset.  Each matchup features ranked teams in different classes.  Belfry may well be the only team to realistically challenge Johnson Central before the state finals.

1. Johnson Central vs. 3A #2 Belfry

2. Boyle County - OPEN

3. Central - OPEN

4. Franklin County at North Oldham

5. Corbin at 2A #2 Somerset

6. Lexington Catholic at 6A Lafayette

7. Wayne County vs. 5A North Laurel

8. Russell County - OPEN

9. Logan County at Hopkins County Central (10/31)

10. Knox Central at 5A South Laurel

Does Central, Franklin or Corbin have much of a shot of knocking off either Johnson Central or Boyle come playoff time?

You better believe it. If those teams overlook the other than it could make for a bad day. Example Franklin scoring 40+ a game and Central defense beat them and held to 16 points. When the big boys lock horns that when the defensive teams will shine.

I'd say Central does.

I’d imagine Central has the best chance. Franklin and Corbin would be competitive but I can’t see either beating Boyle or Johnson Central. Of course I thought that about Corbin/Boyle a couple years ago and was dead wrong.

Not that I am aware of.  Should be Madison Southern Friday and Bourbon County the following Friday.
