By DevilMayCare - Quarterbacks Beau Buchanan, Bowling Green (8-2, ranked #5 in 5A) Week 10: Buchanan found the passing lanes to be a little clearer against Bullitt Central compared to the previous two weeks. He was a very clean, efficient 9 of 11 for 184 yards and 3 TDs in BG's 52-0 win. Season to date: 160 of 270 for 1,881 yards and 21 TDs with 6 ints. Stock: UP Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 4A Football Playoff Preview

By DragonFire - Class 4A Region 1 Franklin-Simpson has been everything you’d hope for in a defending champion. The Wildcats are 9-1 and their only loss came at the hands of South Warren, one of the top teams in the state regardless of class. Franklin has won seven games in a row, and the last four have come via running clock. They’ve scored 44 points or more in eight games on the way to a 44.6 PPG average and haven’t been held below 47 points since September 14th. Both Tre Bass and Carlos McKinney have rushed for over 1,000 yards on the year. Tre Bass has scored roughly every five times he has ran... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 3A Football Playoff Preview

By gchs_uk9 - REGION I Is it time for change in Region I? After three consecutive regional championships by Elizabethtown, the Panthers slipped to 6-4 this season and seem more vulnerable than in years past. Caldwell County is still strong and Paducah Tilghman just completed one of their best regular seasons in years. Is that enough? Elizabethtown, semifinal losers to Boyle County in 2017, suffered heavy losses due to graduation and began the season 0-3. Six consecutive wins, including yet another district championship, came next, before losing a one-point nail-biter to highly regarded Class 2A foe... Read More →

Louisville Power Rankings 10/31

By TheDeuce - These are the last rankings of the regular season Power Rankings. Thanks to everyone who's read and/or discussed over the course of the season! We will still have the Power Rankings over the next couple/few weeks, they just may look a little different given we are starting the playoffs this week. Good luck to all the teams in the pursuit of a State Title! 1. 6A Saint Xavier (7-3) After reeling off seven in a row, the Tigers traveled to face a tough out-of-state opponent, and dropped their regular season finale to Cincinnati Saint Xavier 34-7. Luke Spears scored the lone touchdown for... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 2A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region I- District 1 vs. District 2 Mayfield has looked the part of a Title favorite since Day 1. The undefeated Cardinals have a lethal Offense, an opportunistic Defense, and plenty of play-making at the disposal one of the State’s best Head Coaches to utilize. Hancock County, entering 5-5, will serve as the first sacrificial lamb on Mayfield’s inevitable march to the Regional Finals. McLean County most likely awaits in Round 2. The Cougars deserve to be commended for an excellent season where they surpassed expectations and flirted with the Top 10 posting a 7-3 record, but the Cardinals... Read More →

6A Notebook 10/30: A Seasons End

By Bac2369 - The high school football regular season has ended and the playoffs start this week. Those team that made the playoffs will have a chance and start over at 0-0. The 6A top 10 didn’t have many games last week. Male, Butler, Trinity, Scott County , and Simon Kenton all finished there seasons the week before and had a chance to rest and get healthy for a playoff run. But we did have the #1 #2, #6, #9 and #10 teams in action. #1 Frederick Douglass traveled to Northern Kentucky to take on Conner. This game was a good test for both teams before a playoff push. The weather Friday night was... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 5A Football Playoff Preview

By DevilMayCare - Region I (District 1 vs. District 2) On paper, this is the most loaded region in 5A. Three of the top seven teams in this class call R1 home. South Warren, Bowling Green, and Owensboro are all worthy of a deep playoff run, but only one will survive long enough to see it happen. In fact, one of them is assured of a disappointing second round exit. Two of the most highly anticipated rematches of the season in 5A are a distinct possibility within this region, and the outcome of the first one will decide if the second even comes to pass. But before we get caught up in being presumptuous, let's... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 6A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region 1: (District 1 vs. District 4) McCracken County (7-3) basically won the district title and the #1 seed for the playoffs two weeks ago. Even though McCracken County last played against Muhlenberg County, most knew this game would be a mismatch. They got a week off before the playoffs start to rest and get the injured healed up for what they hope is a state title run. McCracken County has put up a total of 311 points on the season and averaging 31.1 points per game. Quarterback Elijah Wheat is a big part of the success, throwing for close to 1400 yards and 15 touchdowns. Franklin... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 1A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - REGION 1 Region 1 is shaping up a lot like last year. Campbellsville and Crittenden County have been solidly ranked at #6 and #7 in the 1A top ten all year. They opened the season there and lived up to their billing all season. Each team has one quality loss on the season. These two teams are the strong favorites to get to a rematch of last year’s regional final. Crittenden County should have no trouble with Caverna in round 1. From there the Rockets will face the winner of Bethlehem and Fulton County. The Fulton County Pilots have been one of the feel good stories in 1A this season.... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (10/29)

By Ram - Class 1A At first glance, one would see that in the final week of the season there was not a single Top 10 team in Class 1A who took a loss and assume it was a pretty quiet end of the Regular Season. In fact, several teams were actually challenged and firmly in competitive games that were not decided until the 4th Quarter. Beechwood will end the year ranked #1, yet the Tigers were pushed by 2A Newport Central Catholic. Three other teams in the Top 10 - Hazard, Raceland, and Campbellsville, all won by single score margins. Don't expect any dramatics in Round 1 from the Top 10. The playoff... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Lexington/Central Kentucky Area Power Rankings 10-25-18

By PurplePride92 - As we wind down to the end of the season the chance for movement continues to get more slim each week. George Rogers Clark has exited the top ten and Franklin County has joined the ranks of the top ten this week. Other than that the teams remain the same with a little bit of adjusting due to Henry Clay losing their starting quarterback and clearly being a whole new team without him. As we enter the last week of the regular season there aren’t many intriguing matchups and most teams are focusing on team health instead of team success in this final week of the regular. Let’s jump right in. ... Read More →

1A Notebook 10/24 - Dress Rehearsal

By Voice of Reason - Last week we set the stage and had final casting calls completed. This week will be dress rehearsal as teams get ready for showtime – the playoffs. One more week of regular season action. Most of the 1A top ten will be facing larger class opponents as they prepare for the games that will end seasons. Here is how the final casting went last week. In the role of District 6 #1 seed … The Paintsville Tigers. Game of the week in 1A lived up to its billing. It turned into a defensive slugfest. Paintsville made a second quarter 10 yard touchdown pass from Jake Hyden to Karsten Poe stand up for... Read More →
