BluegrassPreps Class 5A Football Rankings (10/5) - Discussion
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...

Class 3A

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...

Class 1A

It is time for district play. That often brings us some lopsided matchups, but it also brings us some great head to head matchups within the class. We get a preview of that this week.

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.

Class 6A

Trinity cemented the top spot with impressive win over Male and now turns their sights on rival St. Xavier on the road. Male remains number two as few teams could score 14 points on Trinity. Male will now travel to fellow traditional school Butler. North Hardin put in an impressive defensive performance shutting out rival John Hardin. North Hardin travels to take on Bullitt East. Manual was competitive with Ohio power La Salle and now travels to 5A #9 North Bullitt. St. Xavier is coming off a week of rest and welcomes rival Trinity to campus for the first time in decades as the game will not be played at Cardinal Stadium.

Class 5A

We appear to be in the midst of a game of hot potato with the top ranking in 5A. For the third week in a row, we have a new #1, following another too-close-for-comfort win by Covington Catholic. Beechwood made the Colonels and their fans uncomfortable right up until Caleb Jacob picked up a victory sealing first down on a keeper. A rose by any other name is still a rose, but the scent from this win wasn't pleasant enough for the Colonels to hang on at the top for another week. As of right now, CovCath isn't anywhere near their level of the previous three years.

Class 4A

Through two weeks, the top four teams in 4A remain unchanged, even though the order of the top two flipped after the first week.  Johnson Central and Boyle County have not lost a step, with Boyle County putting a 35 point beating on 3A #3 Christian Academy - Louisville this week.  Franklin County is humming along as well, and Central - well, let's see if they can get a game in finally next week.

Class 3A

Another week of exciting football unfortunately left more questions than answers in Class 3A. Top-ranked Belfry fell to county rival Pikeville, the #1 team in Class 1A, 20-14. The loss was enough to push the Pirates from the top perch as they are replaced by DeSales. Quarterback Jayden Scroggins passed for one touchdown and ran for three as the Colts romped over Cooper, 42-14. Third place Christian Academy of Louisville stayed put despite taking a thumping from 4A power Boyle County. CAL was competitive for much of the first three quarters before succumbing late.

Class 2A

In small school prep football, a kicker is a dangerous weapon. Lexington Christian Academy has benefited from the booming leg of their kicker for a pair of statement wins to start the year, the latest a walk off field goal to claim private school bragging rights in Fayette County over Lexington Catholic. LCA now travels to Williamsburg, a team Somerset rolled over on Friday. Beechwood came up short in their battle for respect, but by taking defending 5A champion Covington Catholic to the wire they substantiated that they are a team to be reckoned with.

Class 1A

Pikeville made it very clear they are the team to beat once again in 1A with a strong win over 3A #1 Belfry. The top challengers at this point are the Paintsville Tigers. Their long road trip to play #6 Crittenden County fell victim to virus concerns, giving both teams an unwanted week off. The team to keep an eye is Louisville Holy Cross. They have impressed in their opening two games. Class 1A stalwarts Raceland and Hazard took it on the chin and have cast doubts on how strong this years version of each is.

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (9/22)
This week, we say hello to three players making their watchlist debuts: a multi-faceted running back from a 5A sleeper, a quarterback trying to fill some very big shoes at a perennial power, and a player who dishes out punishment both as a running back and as a pass rusher.

Class 3A
For a pair of Class 3A contenders, the season's opening week was not friendly, even on their home turf. DeSales could not overcome a first half deficit to Lexington Christian Academy, and Bell County was simply out-manned against defending 4A champ Johnson Central. Both look to rally against unranked 5A foes. Belfry took care of business at home against Pulaski County and will seek revenge against rival Pikeville. Christian Academy - Louisville  will certainly remember what Boyle County did to them in 2019 as they look to make a major statement at home. Elizabethtown perhaps was the most impressive victor. The Panthers handled 6A Central Hardin in Ross Brown's debut.

Class 5A
As one falls, another ascends. Frederick Douglass could not take down North Hardin in the state's premier game, but Bowling Green turned heads around the Commonwealth by stunning St. Xavier. Covington Catholic will need aftershave after Dixie Heights gave them a game too close for comfort, they will need to correct their miscues against a Beechwood team willing to stun Northern Kentucky.  Speaking of close shaves, Scott County counted themselves fortunate to escape Bryan Station and now must hold court within their own county lines. Owensboro and South Warren rolled to victories, the Spartans take a major step up in competition against Central. Southwestern won a shootout over Wayne County and their Mr. Football candidate at RB, the Warriors hope to repeat the script against Azariah Israel and GRC.

Class 2A
Lexington Christian Academy and Beechwood wasted little time making statements that they are prepared to challenge for the 2A title. LCA went to DeSales and earned a hard fought victory while Beechwood also went on the road to Corbin and stunned the Redhounds at Campbell Field. Both teams look to keep the momentum going with equally huge games this week, once again on the road. Somerset made short work of Whitley County and will eye a win over a ranked Williamsburg team as well. Mayfield was on the wrong end of a beating at the hands of McCracken County and will have no walk in the park against rival Graves County.

Class 6A
Trinity left little doubt if they were for real by blowing out tradition rich Moeller (OH). The Shamrocks now look to eliminate any doubts of people who only know teams from inside the Bluegrass State as they host Male in a monster tilt. North Hardin made a massive statement of their own by heading into Lexington and knocking off the pre-season #1 team in Class 5A. The Trojans begin their quest for Hardin County domination this week. Depending on how much stock you put into scrimmages, veteran laden Manual may have sent a message. The Crimsons could make an undeniable statement if they can knock off La Salle (OH). Ballard and Fern Creek are two teams with high expectations in Jefferson County. Those two will open their respective seasons in a massive clash. Also of note: Simon Kenton looked good by continuing the questions around the Highlands program as did McCracken County by punishing rival small-school powerhouse Mayfield. Expect both to move to 2-0 this week against lighter competition.

Pikeville's title defense took a little longer than expected to get off to a successful start with their 15th consecutive win, but after all the weather delays the Panthers took care of Raceland for an early season statement win within the class. Pikeville has a chance to make a statewide statement this week against defending 3A champion Belfry. Williamsburg will also take a similar challenge as they travel to the reigning 2A king Somerset. Paintsville will cross the Commonwealth for a huge intra-class battle against Crittenden County. The Rockets laid an egg in week one against Caldwell County and will try to get back on the winning track in a big way.

2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (9/15)
A couple of names, such as Jaylin Bross and Jantzen Dunn are absent this week because they have yet to play a game. Others, like Jager Burton and Dekel Crowdus will have to work their way back on because of how events unfolded last Friday. There will probably be more movement to this list from week to week than in previous years.

Class 4A
Johnson Central and Boyle County wasted little time serving notice that neither team are ready to give up their seat at the head of the table. The Golden Eagles cruised past 3A runner-up Bell County and the Rebels put a running clock on a quality Mercer County squad. Franklin County made sure not to be outdone by laying waste to Anderson County. Central took a week off with the rest of Jefferson County Public Schools, but the Yellowjackets will make the wait worthwhile with a monster showdown with 5A South Warren. Hopkinsville looked impressive in their opener and will look to plant their stake as the team to beat in the west if they can fend off Christian County. Corbin and Wayne County both took heartbreaking losses in their debuts and will each need to get into the win column against quality foes.
