3A Notebook: Playoff Preparation Begins

By gchs_uk9 - Playoff Picture Now Set in Stone After ten weeks of exciting Class 3A football the playoff brackets are set with a solitary week remaining in the regular season. On Friday, four teams wrapped up first place in their respective districts and another clinched a fourth place spot with a rivalry win. There were a few other key wins that affected district posturing. This postseason will see the return of intra-district play in the first two rounds, something used only twice previously by the KHSAA, in 2006 and 2007. District championships will now be decided by the second round playoff... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-26

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 9-0)- The Eagles are flying high and flying far. They polished off Letcher Central in another running clock performance and now set their sights on fellow EKY titan Belfry. 2. Bell County Bobcats (3A, 9-0)- The Bobcats continue their dominance by crushing Estill County and now just need to defeat Harlan County and hope their RPI holds up as the 1-seed in the East. 3. Pikeville Panthers (1A, 9-0)- The Panthers get the win via forfeit over Jenkins and now stand only a win against stout Ridgeview, Virginia away from a flawless regular season. 4.... Read More →

By WestDanville - The Top 10 1. Boyle County (4A, 8-0, RPI .754) Boyle scored on offense, defense and special teams in their 52-7 route of Anderson County. QB Reed Lanter was efficient yet again completing 12/16 passes for 169 and 2 scores.

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - 1) 5A Covington Catholic (9-0) – The Colonels are one win away from 3-straight undefeated regular seasons after their 13-0 shutout over district rival 5A Highlands (5-4).

Class 4A Notebook (10/23): Almost Caught Looking Ahead?

By DragonFire - Last week when I looked ahead at the schedule for week 9, I found the slate to be rather underwhelming, and it made it difficult to designate a game of the week. That pretty much bore out. There were nine games featuring top 10 teams – none against another ranked team – and those games were won by an average of 28.89 points, with all but one being decided by 15+ points. But two did stand out in their surprisingly close margins given what was expected, and it seems no coincidence that the winning team in each are going to play this week – perhaps each got caught peeking. #5 Corbin...

Bluegrasspreps Mr. Football Watchlist (10/23)

By DevilMayCare - Front Runners Beau Allen (QB, Lexington Catholic) Week 9: Allen found the hosts more agreeable in Paris than he did the previous week in Danville.

He's the first QB in the state this season to reach 3,000 yards of offense and trails only Drew Hartz (40) in touchdowns accounted for (38). Season to date: 179/258 for 2,683 yards and 29 TDs/3 ints. - 385 yards rushing/9 TDs Read More →

Class 2A Notebook- Filling in the Corners

By ATLCat - The Puzzle Pieces Come Together This past July I did something with my niece and nephew on vacation I had not done since I was a kid myself. Over the span of the week, with whatever free time became open at lunch or at night before bed, we worked on a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle. It was an especially daunting challenge at first as it seemed overwhelming with so many pieces looking the same, but the old tried and true rule of feeling in the corners and framing the picture allowed us to get going and once the patterns became noticeable and the pieces thinned out, we wrapped it up much quicker in...

Bluegrasspreps' Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-22

By ATLCat - 1. Johnson Central Golden Eagles (4A, 8-0)- The Eagles ran wild on the poor Harlan County Black Bears and need only a win over Letcher Central to finish their regular season District slate undefeated. 2. Bell County Bobcats (3A, 8-0)- Undefeated and relatively unchallenged, the Bobcats keep their blowout tour in tact by destroying Jackson County. Estill County is the next victim in their path. 3. Pikeville Panthers (1A, 8-0)- Pikeville took a highly anticipated 1A Clash with Hazard and turned it into an exhibition game by pounding the Bulldogs. Don't be fooled by their small enrollment,...

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/21)

By Ram - Class 1A Pikeville continued to flex their muscle against the best 1A has to offer, completing their trifecta of statement wins by punishing Hazard on the road. The last piece to the Eastern Kentucky puzzle falls into place this week when Raceland and Paintsville meet in a blossoming rivalry. Campbellsville survived a scare against a game Bethlehem squad, but still have work to do as Louisville Holy Cross is more than equipped to pull off the upset. Williamsburg finds themselves in a similar position, a week after beating Pineville they cannot let their guard down against Lynn Camp. 1.... Read More →

Class 5A Notebook (10/20): Glancing at the second wave

By DevilMayCare - Ignore these four at your own risk From the northern reaches of Park Hills, to the "farm(s)" of central Kentucky, to Corvette City, we're pretty familiar with most of 5A's contenders, but there's a middle tier of teams that have largely been glossed over. This week, we're going to turn our attention to 5A's equivalent of the "middle child". #6 South Oldham - In regards to the Dragons, it's easy to see why they're consistently overlooked every year around this time. In 2017 and 2018, they dropped the season opener to the Christian Academy of Louisville before embarking on a long winning... Read More →

But some great games and surprise results for us to discuss for sure! So let’s get to it… Week 9 Western Kentucky Game of the Week: 2A Caldwell County... Read More →

No "Slow Down" for Red Hot Ashland

By gchs_uk9 - Ashland Storms Back from Early Deficit to Top Russell Down 14-0 early, Ashland did what they're known for to get back to a tie game: run the football. Then they did what came as a surprise to many to win the game: throw a 97-yard touchdown pass. That pass, from Jake Gregg to JT Garrett with 3:35 remaining in the game, proved to be the difference as the third-ranked Tomcats beat #6 Russell, 21-14. "Too big of a game to slow down," Garrett said to the Ashland Daily Independent. "We’ve been working on that play all week. It turned out perfect." (Air it to Garrett: Junior's 97-yard TD...
