  4. Thanks to Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry -"Making Northern Kentucky Smile" for sponsoring our 2016 Northern Kentucky Power Rankings! We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 10) Holy Cross (2A) 7-3 – The Indians put up a serious fight during the regular season this year, besting their 5-5 season last year by 2 wins. They finished things off in winning fashion by beating 1A Bellevue 56-12 on the road. Holy Cross’s backfield, led by rushers Xavier Abernathy and Derrick Barnes, ran for a combined 306 yards and 5 TDs, while QB Dylan Couch threw for 191 yards and 2 TDs to Corey Lyons and Jaylin Williams. Austin Baker and Jake Gerrein led the defense with 7 tackles each, while Barnes, Finke, Finnell and Schirmann each had 5 tackles a piece. Holy Cross starts off in the 2A playoffs hosting Owen County (5-5) tonight at Covington Catholic. 9) Highlands (5A) 3-7 – The Birds will be looking to put this regular season well behind them as they begin their hunt in the 5A playoffs with a fresh 0-0 record. Their third win of the season came in Week 10 with a 48-28 win over 6A Boone County last Friday. QG Brady Gosney showed why he is the number 2 passer in 5A with 219 yards and 3 TDs passing, while adding another 2 TDs on the ground. RB Grant Murray rushed for 175 yards and 2 TDS, and caught one more TD. Nick Veneman caught for 163 yards and 1 TD while Trent Buchert added another TD reception. The defense will continue to be a concern for the Birds, as evidenced by Boone’s 498 yards total offense, compared to Highlands’ 477 total yards offense. Highlands will start the 5A playoffs on the road against Doss (5-5). 8) Newport Catholic (2A) 5-5 – For a second year in a row, the Breds came out of the regular season with a 5-5 record. Friday proved more of a disappointment than most New Cath fans would have hoped, with the Breds losing 14-42 to 1A Beechwood. For 328 total yards of offense, New Cath only had two touchdowns to show for it, with a 22 yard Henschen to Losey TD pass, and a punch-in TD on the ground by Kelly. Henschen finished the game with 226 yards and 1 TD passing, while Hunter Cain led the defense with 6 solo tackles. The Breds will look to repeat their 2015 run to the 2A state finals as they begin the playoffs against Carroll County (4-6). 7) Dixie Heights (5A) 5-5 – Dixie’s regular season ended on Friday with a loss to an undefeated 6A Ryle team. The Colonels weren’t able to dig out a winning regular season, but still managed to improve things by finishing the regular season with two more wins than they had all year in 2015. Dixie’s passing game couldn’t get going on Friday, with a mere 37 yards in the air. Cameron Barrett rushed for 98 yards and 1 TD, Brandon Barker ran for another 49 yards and 1 TD, while Austin Rice added another 117 yards on the ground. SR Jose Torres – 5A’s #3 leading rusher – only carried three times for 7 yards. Dixie will begin in the 5A playoffs on Friday as they host Southern (4-6). 6) Beechwood (1A) 9-1 – Beechwood finished their second 9-1 regular season in a row on Friday by beating longtime rival 2A Newport Catholic. The Tigers extended their win streak over the Breds to three by beating New Cath 42-14 with 433 yards total offense. Brayden Burch went 10 for 18 with 170 yards and 3 TDs passing, and Aiden Justice averaged over 8 yards per carry with an impressive 168 yards rushing and 2 TDs. The 1A playoffs open for the Tigers at home on Friday against Eminence (4-6). 5) Cooper (6A) 6-4 – Cooper saw no action this week, after having wrapped up their regular season schedule last week with a 7-18 loss to 6A district rival Conner. Quarterback Jarod Lonaker finished the regular season as the number one 6A passer in Kentucky while favorite receiver, SR Dante Hendrix, finished as the number two 6A receiver in the state. The Jags will be on the road on Friday, as they head to Lexington to take on Bryan Station (4-6) in the first round of the 6A playoffs. 4) Conner (6A) 8-2 – The Cougars enters the 6A playoffs second place in District 5, ending the regular season with a 40-8 win over 4A Mason County. QB Buelow had 155 yards passing on Friday, with 1 passing TD and 1 rushing. RB Armand Jackson rushed 9 times for 122 yards and 3 TDs of his own. Senior Peyton VanHorn had 14 solo tackles in the game, finishing the regular season with a stout 117 solo tackles. Conner starts off their run in the 6A playoffs against Paul Laurence Dunbar (3-7) on Friday in Hebron. 3) Covington Catholic (5A) 7-3 – After a 3-7 regular season last year, the Colonels turned things around, facing 9 of the same opponents this year, but coming out with much improved a 7-3 record, including wins over Sycamore (OH), 4A Lex Cath, and 5A rival Highlands. Their final game of the season ended in a loss, but many didn’t expect to find the Colonels tied with 6A Scott County going into the 4th quarter of the 28-35 loss on Friday. Senior Alex Shelton led the defense with 7 tackles, while QB AJ Mayer led the offensive charge with 149 yards and 2 TDs passing and 1 TD on the ground. Anthony Best had a receiving TD and a rushing TD, while Josh Newman had 1 TD receiving. Cov Cath will play host to Fairdale (3-7) on Friday in the first round of the 5A playoffs. 2) Simon Kenton (6A) 9-1 – Simon Kenton’s regular season only had 1 blemish – a Week 10 loss to 6A Ryle. However, they finished off things in the regular season with a 39-7 win over 4A Scott. Racke was 70% passing with 126 yards and 2 TDs on 10 attempts. Dylan Hampton and Jon Sergent accounted for 3 TSs on the ground, while Tanner Green and Luke Vance caught for 1 TD a piece. Conner Norvell led the defense with 6 solo tackles and 2 assisted tackles. Simon Kenton will host 6A George Rogers Clark (1-9) in the first round of the playoffs. 1) Ryle (6A) 10-0 – Ryle finishes out the regular season undefeated with a final 43-14 victory over 5A Dixie Heights. Tanner Morgan had another stellar outing going 9 for 18 with 219 yards and 3 TDs passing. Jake Chisholm had 3 TDs, with 2 by air and 1 by land, and the other TDs came via Clarkson, Howorka, and Pilyer. Demetrakis, High and Saladin each had 8 solo tackles on D, while Rytlewski had 3 tackles, a fumble recovery, and an interception. The Raiders bested 8 NKY competitors in the regular season, as well as 6A Henry Clay and 6A George Rogers Clark. They will start the 6A playoffs this Friday by hosting Henry Clay (3-6-1) for a rematch of their regular season game. Trending Up (Season): 5A Covington Catholic (7-3) – The Colonels faced 9 of the 10 teams they played last season, and reversed their regular season win/loss record from 3-7 in 2015 to 7-3 in 2016. 2A Holy Cross (7-3) – Holy Cross’s senior class pulled their weight in the regular season, helping improve the team's record from 5-5 in 2015 to 7-3 in 2016. 6A Ryle (10-0) – Ryle won out the regular season this year, improving on their 2015 by two wins and finishing as the only undefeated team in NKY and the #1 team in the final edition of the NKY Power Rankings for the year. Trending Down (Season): 6A Campbell County (3-7) – Although they saw two more wins this season than they did in 2015 – beating 5A Highlands and 2A New Cath in cross-county competition – the Camels team seemed to slip backwards throughout the regular season as they only managed 1 win in their last 7 games. 5A Highlands (3-7) – The 2016 regular season was one of the worst in Highlands’ football history, with losses including 6A Campbell County, 5A Dixie Heights, and rival 5A Covington Catholic. The Birds will start off the playoffs on the road for the first time in over 20 years. 4A Scott (3-7) – After having their best regular season in program history in 2015 (8-2), the Eagles were only able to scrape out 2 wins in the regular season this year, and will face the same Johnson Central (9-1) team in the first round of the playoffs who ended their playoff run last year.

We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 10) Beechwood (1A) 1-0 – Beechwood opened their season by beating 2A Lloyd in Ft. Mitchell this past Friday 12-0. The Tigers struggled on offense, with only 155 total yards – 134 of which were amassed in the air. Junior Brayden Burch had his first start at QB, passing for 116 yards. Beechwood’s only offensive points came on a 22 yard Daniel Mescher field goal in the 3rd quarter. The remaining points were scored on a blocked punt recovered for a safety, and a kickoff return for TD. The Tigers host 2A Somerset this Friday. 9) Conner (6A) 1-0 – Conner opened up their season in Florence at 6A district rival Boone County. Senior QB Walker Buelow connected for 12 of his 20 pass attempts, racking up 238 yards passing and 2 TD’s, and rushed for an additional 76 yards. The Cougars played 3 different QB’s on Friday, and had an additional 3 RB’s in the backfield, pointing to numerous offensive options this season. Senior Austin Cain led the defense with 5 tackles. Conner travels to Independence this week to take on 6A district rival Simon Kenton. 8) Newport Central Catholic (2A) 1-1 – The Breds took one on the chin this past Friday. After a strong 26 point win in week 0, Newport Catholic ran into a roadblock in the 6A Cooper Jaguars, losing 14-45 to the Jags. New Cath had a respectable 215 yards on the ground, but the story of the game was passing. Cooper stacked up 342 yards passing, while New Cath’s QB Henschen was only able to connect on 3 of his 13 attempts, for 11 of their total 30 yards passing. The Thoroughbreds look to improve this Friday when they host 6A Campbell County. 7) Dixie Heights (5A) 1-0 – A lot remains to be seen about how things are going at Dixie, but starting off the season with a win against a season they lost to last year is a undeniable step in the right direction for the Colonels. After a rough week dealing with the loss of a former teammate, Colson Machlitt, the Colonels played hard, with RB Jose Torres giving a great performance that included 219 total yards and 4 touchdowns. Dixie takes on Milford (OH) at home this Friday. 5T) Covington Catholic (5A) 1-1 – The Colonels racked up an impressive 8 touchdowns in Thursday nights won over Oak Hills (OH). Their biggest lead of the game was 29 points at the end of the 4th quarter, but by the time the final whistle blew, their lead had diminished to 8 points with the final score 56-48. Cov Cath will take the win, though, including 4 passing TD’s and 1 rushing TD by quarterback AJ Mayer, and an impressive 350 all-purpose yards and 3 TD’s by sophomore running back Casey McGinness. The Colonels host Sycamore (OH) this week in Park Hills. 5T) Cooper (6A) 1-1 – Cooper beat 2A New Cath by 35 in week 1 of the 2015 season, and similarly, they beat them by 31 points in week 1 this season. The Jags posted 565 yards of offense on Friday in the Skyline Crosstown Showdown, with QB Lonaker throwing for 343 yards and 3 touchdowns, RB Jackson rushing for 134 yards and 2 touchdowns, and WR Hendrix receiving for 160 yards and 2 touchdowns. Cooper host 6A Bryan Station this week in Union. 4) Highlands (5A) 1-1 – After a 4th quarter win in week 0, Highlands suffered a 4th quarter loss in week 1 at the hands of 6A Campbell County. It was a sloppy game for the Birds, and there’s no doubting they will be hard at work bringing about a some changes this week as they stare down their 6A onslaught, preparing to play Scott County this week, Ryle the week after, St. Xavier the next, and then Simon Kenton the week following. 3) Campbell County (6A) 1-1 – There are a lot of thoughts about Campbell County’s victory on Friday over 5A Highlands. The fact is, the Camels won. Coach Steve Lickert (a Highlands alum) and team was the better team on the field this week, and they improve in this week’s power rankings because of it. The Camels had 367 total offensive yards to the Bluebirds’ 338 total yards, and eked out the victory on a field goal in the final seconds. Campbell County heads down the road on Friday to take on 2A Newport Catholic. 2) Ryle (6A) 2-0 – The Raiders improved to 2-0 on Friday, beating the 6A Henry Clay Blue Devils 34-28 at the Bluegrass Bowl in Lexington. Tanner Morgan went 16 for 26, passing for 153 yards and 1 touchdown. Jake Chisholm caught for 49 yards, rushed for 127 yards, and had 2 touchdowns on the ground. 1) Simon Kenton (6A) 2-0 – Simon Kenton beat the 6A Bryan Station Defenders 50-7 this past Friday. That means the Pioneers have beaten their first two opponents this season by a combined score of 91-21. They have over 900 total yards of offense, compared to the 417 yards that they’ve allowed their opponents. Until someone in NKY is able to step up and challenge the ‘Neers, there isn’t anything pointing to their being de-throned in NKY. Simon Kenton host 6A Conner this week in Independence. Trending Up: 2A Holy Cross (2-0) – The Indians are now 2-0 after shutting 2A district opponent Walton-Verona 44-0. Holy Cross has beaten their first two opponents by a combined score of 86-7. 2A Lloyd Memorial (1-1) – The Juggs didn’t win their second game of the season, but their defense impressed for a second week in a row, only allowing 3 offensive points by 1A Beechwood in their 0-12 loss to the Tigers this past Friday. 6A Campbell County (1-1) – After losing their first game of the season, the Camels were able to pull off a last-minute field goal to upset the 5A Highlands Bluebirds, previously ranked 3rd in NKY. The Camels were unranked last week in NKY. Trending Down: 2A Walton-Verona (0-2) – The Wildcats were shut out for a second week in a row, losing 0-44 to 2A Holy Cross (Cov) and have given up over 80 points this season to their opponents. 4A Scott (0-2) – A surprise to many, the Eagles have lost both of their first two games this season. Scott was beaten 7-34 this week by the 5A Dixie Heights Colonels. 5A Highlands (1-1) – After beating 6A Cooper in their season opener, there weren’t many who expected a loss to 6A Campbell County, but 4 quarters of sloppy play, the Birds lost to the Camels on a last second field goal on Friday. Player Of The Week: Jose Torres (Dixie Heights) The Colonels’ senior running back Torres had a heck of a game against Scott on Friday, rushing for over 200 yards and an impressive 4 touchdowns. Week 2 Game Of The Week: Cooper (6A) vs. Bryan Station (6A) Cooper will be welcoming Bryan Station to Union on Friday after a convincing win over 2A New Cath, while Bryan Station is going to be coming in with a chip on their shoulder after losing 7-50 to 6A Simon Kenton. Both teams have 1-1 records going into the matchup this week, with Cooper having lost to 5A Highlands and Bryan Station having beaten 4A Wayne County in week 0.
  6. Thanks to Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry -"Making Northern Kentucky Smile" for sponsoring our 2016 Northern Kentucky Power Rankings! We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 10) Scott (4A) – Many expected to see more out of the Eagles this Friday past, as Scott took the field for the first time following their most successful season in program history. New Cath came out looking to play the spoiler, as they beat the Eagles by 26 on Saturday, handing them a 21-47 loss in Newport. It will be interesting to see how well Scott can rebound as they take on the 5A Dixie Heights Colonels this week in their home opener. Junior quarterback Nelson Perrin had a 95 yard kickoff return for the Eagles on Saturday, along with 78 yards passing for 1 TD, as well as 44 yards and 1 TD rushing. Scott will also be looking to improve on their 240 total yards offense and 5 fumbles from Saturday when they host Dixie this Friday. 9) Conner (6A) – No action this week for the Cougars. After finishing 8-4 last year, there were many who were surprised by the overall positive show last year by Conner. However, Conner graduated 19 seniors last year including their starting quarterback, among others. Expectations for this season are all across the board when it comes to the Cougars. Things have been quiet in Hebron in the off-season, but Conner looks to open things in winning fashion when they head to Florence to take on 6A district rival Boone County in their opener. Boone is coming in Friday following a 18-41 loss to 3A Lexington Catholic, although the Rebels surprised many by leading Lex Cath 12-7 in the second quarter of their game last week. Friday’s game should be an interesting gauge of Conner and Boone County both. 8) Beechwood (1A) – No action this week for the Tigers. Beechwood will open their 2016 season this year against the 2A Lloyd Juggernauts, with the Juggs coming in fresh off a romping 38 point shutout over 2A Walton-Verona. Beechwood and Lloyd have only faced off 4 times in the last decade, with the Tigers winning all 4 contests. Coach Rash faced a daunting task in the off-season, having to find replacements to graduated seniors Kyle Fieger, Brett Slusher, and Ethan Stringer. Junior quarterback Brayden Burch and senior RB Aiden Justice will be leading the offensive charge for the Tigers, but the defense remains the big question about Beechwood’s game this season. We’ll see how they stack up this Friday in Ft. Mitchell. 7) Newport Central Catholic (2A) – The Thoroughbreds came out with a purpose in their season opener this past Saturday, thumping the 4A Scott Eagles 47-21 at home in Newport. New Cath was looking to avenge a messy 7-8 loss from their opening game against the Eagles last season, and did so on the back of senior QB Henschen, who went 6-8 and 176 yards passing, and rushed for an additional 55 yards. WR Austin Neff had two receptions for 100 yards with a touchdown on each, and RB Jason Decker averaged over 10 yards a piece on each of his 8 carries, with a touchdown of his own. Senior LB Sutkamp logged 7 solo tackles in the victory. New Cath travels to Union this week to take on the 6A Cooper Jaguars on Friday. 6) Dixie Heights (5A) – No action this past week for the Red Colonels. We will begin to have a look at what Coach Brossart has done with the Dixie program in the off-season when they open their season this Friday in Taylor Mill against the 4A Scott Eagles. After struggling last season with a large group of new starters, the Colonels will be coming in with a more seasoned and composed team on both sides of the ball. Look for transfer Giante Hicks to have a big game for Dixie as they work to improve on their 3-8 record from last year. 5) Covington Catholic (5A) – The Colonels started off their season this year in Union against the 6A Ryle Raiders, but didn’t manage to start off with one in the W column. Ryle’s size was difficult to overcome this week, and Cov Cath struggled to push to the end zone, opting twice for field goals via senior kicker Kloska. Sophomore RB McGinness had a big first half, but was held to 22 yards rushing in the second half. Junior quarterback AJ Mayer had some difficulty connecting with his receiving corps – something that the Coach Eviston will no doubt be working on correcting as Cov Cath prepares to take on Ohio DI team Oak Hills in the Skyline Crosstown Showdown this week at Mount St. Joseph. The Colonels showed some resilience and never let Ryle run away with the game, but will be hard at work improving their game as they make their way through a very challenging 2016 schedule. 4) Cooper (6A) – Unlike last year, Cooper started off this season with a loss after traveling to 5A Highlands’ David Cecil Memorial Stadium to take on the Birds in their opener for the second year in a row. It was a high scoring affair, and even after the Jags jumped out to a 21-6 lead in the first quarter, Highlands was able to wear them down, and eventually pull ahead in the 4th quarter to come out on top 52-42. Cooper’s stud RB Dante Hendrix was covered heavily, and was held to a single touchdown on Friday, with Jaden Jackson, Shea Burns, Justin Schlarman and QG Jared Lonaker adding touchdowns as well. Cooper will be dusting themselves off and working on tightening things up for this week’s home opener against the 2A Newport Catholic Thoroughbreds. 3) Highlands (5A) – After last season’s opening loss to the 6A Cooper Jaguars, there were many predicting a repeat loss for the Birds this past Friday, but Coach Weinrich proved that, as in years past, the Highlands offseason conditioning makes their team one of THE hardest to beat in the 4th quarter. The Bluebirds came out on top of a shootout in Ft. Thomas, beating the Jags 52-42. Offensively, the two teams were within 9 total offensive yards of one another, but Highlands won the battle for field position, and their conversion of a touchdown off a Cooper fumble ended up being the deciding factors in the victory for the Birds. Highlands will travel down the road to Claryville to take on the 6A Campbell County Camels this week. 2) Ryle (6A) – It took less than 3 minutes for the Raiders to get their first points of the 2016 season. Tanner Morgan orchestrated a 7-play, 82 yard drive that ended with 7 points on the scoreboard for Ryle, and proved that they were prepared to grind it out all night against 5A Covington Catholic. The Raiders won 31-13, with Morgan ending his night with nearly 300 yards and 2 TDs passing, and an additional rushing TD to boot. RB Chisholm rushed for almost 150 yards and had 1 TD, and WR Cusick added 100 yards receiving and a TD of his own. Ryle ended the night with over 550 total offensive yards, and kept Cov Cath’s offense to just over 300 yards. Ryle takes on 6A Henry Clay in the 2016 Bluegrass Bowl.

Highlands took over for the rest of the game, and sent the ‘Neers home on the short side of a 38-9 final score. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 6 2A Walton-Verna vs. 1A Paintsville There has been a lot of talk in the last couple of seasons about the scheduling at Walton-Verona and whether or not they are able to compete with tough teams in the playoffs if they aren’t facing tough teams in their regular season.

  14. Thanks to Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry -"Making Northern Kentucky Smile" for sponsoring our 2016 Northern Kentucky Power Rankings! We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 10) Highlands (5A) 1-7 – The hardships continued for the Bluebirds this past Friday, this time with a decade-long win streak over district rival Cov Cath being snapped by the 5A Colonels in Ft. Thomas. Highlands lost on Friday 26-63. Despite 421 total yards by Highlands’ offense, including 264 yards and 2 TDs passing by QB Gosney, the Birds’ defense was still no match for Cov Cath’s offense with their 595 total yards. Highlands will shoot for their second win this season against 5A Grant County in their final district matchup. 9) Newport Catholic (2A) 4-4 – The Breds are digging themselves back out of the hole they found themselves in after running into a meat grinder of a first half to their regular season. New Cath beat 2A Lloyd this past Friday 28-18 in Erlanger. Despite Lloyd’s victory in the competition for total offensive yards, the Breds were able to pull off the win. QB Henschen passed for 128 yards and rushed for 2 TDs, while RB Kelly added 2 more TDs on the ground. Senior LB Kole Carmack followed up last week’s 14 tackle performance with another 12 solo tackles this week. New Cath will take on 2A Newport this Friday. 8) Campbell County (6A) 3-4 – It was another loss for the Camels this past Friday, as 6A Simon Kenton visited Claryville and beat Campbell County 50-20. QB Austin Hoeh passed for 129 yards and 1 TD, while RB Andrew Helton ran for 111 yards and 2 TDs. Although Campbell County and Dixie have both lost to Simon Kenton, Conner and Cooper, and both teams have beaten Highlands, it was Dixie’s superior performance against Highlands last week, and the fewer yards allowed against Simon Kenton and Cooper that gives the Colonels the edge over Campbell County. The Camels head to 6A Boone County this Friday. 7) Dixie Heights (5A) 5-3 – There isn’t much to really establish position between 5A Dixie and 1A Beechwood. For now, much of my ranking is based on Dixie’s struggle in the passing department, but we’ll have a much better gauge this week after the Colonels take on 5A Cov Cath in district play. Nonetheless, Dixie was looking solid this past Friday in their romp over 5A Grant County, beating the Braves 39-0 in Edgewood. They were only able to muster 16 yards passing, but their rushing game was on point with a total 424 yards on the ground. RB Torres had 137 yards and 2 TDs rushing, while RB Austin Rice added another 114 yards and 1 TD rushing. 6) Beechwood (1A) 7-1 – Beechwood’s district competition hasn’t provided much challenge in recent years, and that continued to hold true this past Friday as the Tigers beat the 1A Ludlow Panthers 48-6 in Ludlow. The mood was set by James Davis’ 75 yard touchdown return on opening kickoff, and continued with 2 TDs by Aiden Justice, another TD by Davis, 2 TDs by John Odom, and one more by Garrett Ratliff. Ludlow had their sole touchdown in the 4th quarter against Beechwood’s backups. The Tigers have their final regular season district game this week against 1A Dayton. 5) Conner (6A) 6-2 – The Cougars had their second loss of the season this past weekend, at the hands of 6A Ryle. Conner had a respectable offensive showing, with 397 total yards of offense, but it wasn’t enough to beat Ryle’s 478 yards in the 28-42 loss. QB Walker Beulow still had a commanding 273 yards passing, and Peyton VanHorn had an incredible 17 tackles on the defensive side of things. Conner takes on 6A district rival Cooper this Friday on the road. 4) Cooper (6A) 6-3 – The Jags became the 8th team this season to send 6A Boone County to the locker rooms with a loss, beating the Rebels 41-13. RB Jackson rushed for 87yds and 1TD while QB Lonaker put on a show with his 257yds and 4TDs passing, but there’s no doubt that the show of the game was a 33 yard reception made by WR Dante Hendrix on a one-handed diving catch. The catch was featured as the #1 play on ESPN’s Top 10 Plays that night, and you can check out the catch . Cooper has a big district game this Friday against 6A Conner. 3) Covington Catholic (5A) 6-2 – The Colonels finally got a decade-old monkey off of their backs on Friday, beating the 5A Highlands Bluebirds in Ft. Thomas 63-26. Despite the strength of their passing game this season, Cov Cath controlled this game by keeping things primarily on the ground with RB McGinness rushing for 237 yards and 2 TDs, and QB Mayer rushing for 168 yards and 4 TDs. Mayer also threw for 93 yards and 1 TD. Linebacker Alex Shelton dominated the defensive game with 11 solo tackles. The Colonels have their final district matchup of the regular season this Friday when they host 5A Dixie Heights. 2) Ryle (6A) 8-0 – The Raiders continued their undefeated run this season with a 42-28 victory over 6A district rival Conner on Friday. Jackson High logged 7 tackles, and Josh Sandmann and Justin Selby both had 6 tackles to lead the defensive front. On the offensive side of the ball, Tanner Morgan passed for 228 yards and 3 TDs, while rushing for 1 more TD. Also in the rushing department, Jake Chisholm carried 26 times for 223 yards and 2 TDs. Ryle hosts Simon Kenton this Friday in what will be one of the most anticipated games in the state this week. 1) Simon Kenton (6A) 8-0 – Simon Kenton continued their roll over Northern Kentucky competition on Friday by beating the 6A Campbell County Camels 50-20 on Friday. QB Racke threw for 121 yards and 2 TDs, and backup QB Shearer threw for 122 yards of his own. On the defensive side of the ball, Brian Carter had 7 solo tackles, while Brayden Trattles chalked up 5 solo tackles and a pick-6. The ‘Neers have their biggest game of the season this week against NKY #3 Ryle. Trending Up: 5A Covington Catholic (6-2) – The Colonels finally managed to take down Highlands on Friday in a 63-26 victory over the Birds. It’s the most points ever scored on Highlands by Cov Cath, and the Colonels are gunning for their first regular season district championship in since 2006. 2A Newport Catholic (4-4) – New Cath puts up their second win in a row to improve to .500 with their 28-18 win over Lloyd Memorial. The Breds are 2-0 in district competition. Trending Down: 5A Highlands (1-7) – Highlands continued with their regular season woes, this time losing 26-63 to 5A rival Covington Catholic this past Friday. 4A Scott (1-7) – Scott dropped another one on Friday in their 14-17 loss to 4A Bourbon County. Player Of The Week: Peyton VanHorn (Conner) 17 solo tackles. Just…wow! Game Of The Week: Ryle (6A) vs. Simon Kenton (6A) The only two teams to have occupied the #1 spot in Northern Kentucky in the last two years, and the only two undefeated teams in Northern Kentucky football are going head to head this week for their district bragging rights.
  15. 1) 5A Covington Catholic (8-0) – The Colonels accomplished quite a few tasks on Friday with their 27-7 victory over OH-DII LaSalle (6-1). First, they managed to maintain a now 28-game regular season win streak by beating a team ranked nationally in the top 100 teams by most national polls. Second, they ticked off their 4th ever win against a GCL South team in one of their most marquee regular season wins in program history. And third, they successfully completed a third-straight regular season of being undefeated at home. QB Caleb Jacob was 12-24 passing for 199yds in the game against a LaSalle defense, stacked with D1 college talent. TE Michael Mayer led the receiving corps with 6 receptions for 97yds, and RB Daniel Felix led the rushing attack with 15 carries for 80yds and 2 TDs. The remaining offensive TD was on a 2yd punch-in by Caleb Jacob. Mayer also led the defense from his position at linebacker, with 12 tackles including 2 for losses, a forced fumble, and a 45yd pick-6. The Colonels will take on their biggest rival, 5A Highlands (5-3) in their third district contest tonight in Ft. Thomas. 2) Conner (7-1) – The Cougars continued an undefeated streak in district competition on Friday with a 35-29 win over 5A Cooper (4-4). Conner eclipsed the Jags in offensive yards 424 to 244 despite the 6pt win margin. QB Jared Hicks was stellar, going 14-24 passing for 303yds and 2 TDs, and rushing 13 times for 52yds and 2 more TDs. RB Douglas Abdon didn’t have any TDs in the game, but led the offense in rushing with 62yds on 13 carries.

The Cougars have this week off before returning to action on October 25th against 5A Covington Catholic (8-0). 3) 5A Highlands (5-3) – For a second time this season, the Birds rebounded from a frustrating loss by taking out those frustrations on the next week’s team. Highlands hung a 49-0 shutout loss on district competitor 5A Boone County (2-6). QB Collin Hollingsworth was 7-10 passing for 103yds and 3 TDs, and rushed for another 8yds. WR Adam Weyer led the receivers with 47yds on 2 receptions, WRs Hunter Ahlfeld, Jacob Brass, and Brycen Huddleston all hauled in TD receptions. And yes, you heard that right, Brycen Huddleston was on offense – and he scored.

Senior Keegan Stanken spent most of the game at QB, going 9-17 for 103yds and 1 TD. WR Lee Conner was the top receiver in yardage with 4 receptions for 37yds, and Will Watkins was 1yd behind him with 36yds on 2 receptions, good for 1 TD. RB Kyle England was a scoring machine, with 18 carries for 110yds and 4 TDs. The defense was able to capitalize on 4 fumbles, including 1 that was picked up by DB Max Hungler and returned 32yds for a Ryle TD. DB Luke Bradshaw led the defense with 7 tackles, while LB Dillon Talmon had 5 tackles, and DB Johnathan Coker and LB Jackson Belk each had 4 tackles. Ryle will face 6A Dixie Heights tonight in Edgewood in their second district game. 6) 2A Beechwood (3-4) – Beechwood finally seems to have exorcised some demons with the big win they’ve been looking for thus far in 2019. They did so with a huge 68-6 win over 2A district foe Holy Cross (2-5). QB Cam Hergott was 9-12 passing in the game for 174yds and 2 TDs, and he also rushed 5 times for 25yds and 1 TD.

GAME OF THE WEEK (RESULTS): WEEK 7 5A Conner vs. 5A Cooper The Cougars should have won this one big, by looking at the offensive yards in the game – nearly doubling the Jaguars in offensive yards. But a special teams touchdown kept Cooper in this one. Conner held on for a 35-29 win to keep their undefeated district record intact though. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 8 5A Covington Catholic vs. 5A Highlands If this isn’t the game of the week in northern Kentucky, then what in the world is a “game of the week”? These two teams meet for a 52nd consecutive year as district competitors. The rivalry record heavily favors Highlands at 49 wins to 21 for Cov Cath, but the Colonels have won the last 4 games straight, with Colonels head coach Eddie Eviston currently holding a 4-2 record against Highlands. It’s a big night in Fort Thomas tonight.

  18. Thanks to Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry -"Making Northern Kentucky Smile" for sponsoring our 2016 Northern Kentucky Power Rankings! We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 10) Holy Cross (2A) 3-2 – After two seasons of the Northern Kentucky power rankings, the Indians have finally made their way into the top 10. They may have lost on Friday, but they did so while still putting up 432 yards total offense against the Tigers in the 33-40 loss. Holy Cross averaged more yards per play in the game and outscored the Tigers in the second half, and if it weren’t for penalties, they may have been able to win an upset and get their first ever victory against Beechwod…but it wasn’t in the cards last week. RB Derrick Barnes was a rushing powerhouse with 250 yards and 2 TDs, while RB Xavier Abernathy added on 105 yards and 2 TDs of his own rushing. Holy Cross plays 1A Bethlehem on the road this week. 9) Newport Catholic (2A) 2-4 – The first half of New Cath’s regular season has put their team through the ringer, and after taking on three 6A teams and the three-time defending 3A state champs, their record shows it. Friday’s game brought on the 6A Conner Cougars. The Breds fought hard, with 144 yards rushing and 159 yards in the air, but Conner came out on top, winning 27-14. New Cath will be taking a few deep breaths as they recuperate during their bye week this week and prepare for 2A district rival Holy Cross (Covington). 8) Beechwood (1A) 4-1 – With Friday’s 40-33 win over 2A Holy Cross (Covington), it looks like 2A New Cath is the only team that can stand in the way of Beechwood winning out the rest of their regular season. Beechwood’s team is fast moving, and their passing game is quick to strike. It wasn’t a bed of roses for the Tigers on Friday, though, with Holy Cross’ offense threatening throughout all four quarters of the game, but Beechwood managed to come out on top. Aiden Justice posted an impressive 238 all-purpose yards and 3 touchdowns for the Tigers. Beechwood heads to Newport to take on the 2A Wildcats on Friday. 7) Highlands (5A) 1-5 – The first half of Friday’s matchup against the 6A Simon Kenton Pioneers was looking extremely hopeful for the Bluebirds, with a barnburner of a first half and a score of 42-41 in favor of the ‘Neers going into the locker rooms at halftime. But Simon Kenton came out and pulled away with a 77-53 victory in the Ft. Thomas shootout. There were an incredible 1,389 yards total offense between both teams, with 637 yards for Highlands and 752 for Simon Kenton. Highlands has the week off before returning to the field on October 7th for district play against 5A Dixie Heights. 6) Campbell County (6A) 3-3 – After two weeks and two losses in 6A district competition, the Camels proved that turnabout is fair play when they headed to Mt. Orab, Ohio and took on the Western Brown Broncos. Western Brown thumped the Camels last year by beating them 42-14, but Campbell County got their revenge on Friday by beating the Broncos 48-21 on the road. QB Austin Hoeh went 21 for 27 for 279 yards and 4 TDs passing, and Nic Mayer had 11 receptions for 173 yards and 2 touchdowns on Friday. The Camels will be resting on their bye week before taking on 6A Conner on October 7th. 5) Conner (6A) 4-1 – Conner is definitely on their game right now, but Friday didn’t seem to be their best showing of the year. The Cougars beat the 2A New Cath Thoroughbreds 27-14 at home, and they posted a very solid 389 yards of offense, with Troy Greenlee leading the defensive front with 11 solo tackles. However, 6A district rival Cooper beat the same New Cath team 4 weeks ago with a score of 45-14, leaving it in question how things will look come October 21st when the Cougars head to Union to take on the Jags. This week Conner looks to improve their record against 2A Lloyd Memorial. 4) Covington Catholic (5A) 4-2 – I have to say…if Cooper is #3, then Cov Cath is #3A . The Colonels took a tough 17-49 loss to Columbus DeSales on Friday. With 5 seconds to go in the first half the Colonels had pulled within 1 score of DeSales, ranked at #13 in Ohio statewide polls, they had forced and recovered a fumble, and were going for a hail Mary to try to head into the half with a lead…only to be intercepted in the endzone and watch one of the Stallions' defenders take back a 102 yard pick-6 with no time on the clock. Cov Cath failed to score in the second half. The Colonels have the week off to recoup and heal up before their first district match up this season against 5A Grant County. 3) Cooper (6A) 4-2 – After a few questions about putting Cooper over Cov Cath last week, I’m going to maintain my decision from last week following Cooper’s 38-20 victory over a 3A Lex Cath team that Cov Cath only beat by 1 point two weeks prior. Jags’ QB Lonaker had another HUGE game passing this week, with 342 yards by air and 3 TD passes. Dante Hendrix had 8 receptions for 140 yards and 2 TDS, with 5 solo tackles and a pick-6 on the defensive side of things to boot. A really nice showing for the Jags, who will head to Edgewood to play the 5A Dixie Heights Colonels on Friday. 2) Simon Kenton (6A) 6-0 – In two years of writing up NKY Power Rankings, this marks only the second time Simon Kenton has had anything other than a #1 in front of their name. The first was in my 2015 pre-season rankings, when I had Highlands listed at #1 before having seen any live game action from the Birds…but I digress. Simon Kenton may have put up an astounding 77 points on 5A Highlands (I’d be interested to hear if any other team has ever done that in the history of Highlands football), but that’s only after heading into the locker room at the half with a mere 1 point lead on the Birds, and allowing Highlands to put up a season high 53 points as well. Simon Kenton is going to need to prepare their defense for Ryle if they hope to win come 24 days from now. The Pioneers have the week off before returning to action against 6A Boone County on October 7th. 1) Ryle (6A) 5-0 – Ryle makes the big move up. The Raiders didn’t see any action this week, but this move is primarily due to their action in week 3 against 5A Highlands. Against Highlands, Ryle accumulated 367 total yards offense and allowed 251 yards by the Birds. This past week 6A Simon Kenton may have accumulated 741 total yards against the Birds, but they also allowed Highlands to put up 643 yards of their own. Based on those numbers, plus record and schedule thus far, I’m going to go ahead and say it…I think (barring injuries) Ryle will beat Simon Kenton on October 21st. Ryle takes on 6A George Rogers Clark this Friday on the road. Trending Up: 2A Holy Cross (3-2) – The Indians lost on Friday in a battle of a game under the lights against Beechwood at Cov Cath’s Wooten Stadium, still making a lot of noise with their dominant running game. 6A Ryle (5-0) – Taking over the top spot in the Northern Kentucky rankings can’t be called anything other than “trending up”. Trending Down: 5A Grant County (3-3) – The Braves dropped another game this week, losing 13-41 to 2A Holy Cross (Louisville). 4A Scott (1-5) – In their third straight loss, the Eagles are struggling as they prepare to take on the 4A Harrison County Thorobreds (3-3)this week. Player Of The Week: Jarod Lonaker (Cooper) In his first season at starting quarterback, QB Jarod Lonaker went 23 for 37 passing with 342 yards and 3 touchdown passes on Friday in the Cooper’s win over 3A Lex Cath. Game Of The Week: Conner (6A) vs. Lloyd Memorial (2A) Conner is the undeniable favorite in the game this Friday, but the Lloyd defense has been hard at work this season, and will be looking to stop the Cougars and revenge their 0-6 loss from last year when the Cougars and Juggs take the field in Hebron this Friday.

We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 10) Holy Cross (2A) 4-2 – The Indians were undoubtedly a little crestfallen after losing to 1A Beechwood the week before last, but they shrugged it off and came back with a win against 1A Bethlehem this past Friday, blanking the Eagles 26-0. That’s the third shut-out win of the season for Holy Cross. The Indians kept their offense on the ground this week, with 307 of their total 384 offensive yards gained via rushing, and an impressive ELEVEN players carried the ball for Latonia Tribe. The Holy Cross defense managed to hold Bethlehem to a mere 51 yards total offense, with -11 yards rushing for the Eagles. The Indians have their biggest district matchup of the season this week when they travel to Newport to take on the 2A New Cath Thoroughbreds on Friday. 9) Newport Catholic (2A) 2-4 – The first half of New Cath’s season this year hasn’t been a great one, although all 6 of their games have been against opponents from higher classes than the 2A Breds. New Cath welcomed the week off to re-group from things and prepare for 2A district rival Holy Cross (Covington) this week at home. 8) Beechwood (1A) 5-1 – Beechwood came out hard on Friday, and absolutely punished a badly struggling 2A Newport squad, beating the Wildcats 62-15. The game saw a first half running clock, and five Tigers chalked up touchdowns in the matchup…with three of them scoring twice a piece. Beechwood had 262 yards rushing, and 133 yards passing for a combined 395 total yards offense. This week brings on the 1A Bellevue Tigers in what can be anticipated as another blowout win for Beechwood. 7) Highlands (5A) 1-5 – It was bye week for the Birds on Friday. They may have lost by 24 points in a shootout with 6A Simon Kenton on Sept. 23rd, but not after showing some serious resilience in the first half of the game. Highlands will be trying to put the past behind them and work on putting down their 5A competition when they play Dixie Heights on the road this week. 6) Campbell County (6A) 3-3 – No action for Campbell County this past week. After ending a 2-game slide against 6A opponents, the Camels were able to win on the road against Western Brown (OH) two weeks ago. Campbell County will be attempting to improve to a 4-3 record when they host 6A Conner this week. 5) Conner (6A) 5-1 – Conner beat 2A New Cath 27-14 the week before last, and this past Friday they took on 2A Lloyd Memorial, beating the Juggs 34-14. Wins always beat losses, but the 6A Cougars need to start beating 2A competition by more than 2 and 3 touchdowns if they want to make noise in the post-season. Lloyd’s defense is their undeniable strength this season, and Conner’s offense managed to put up 150+ yards each, running and passing, but the Cougars need to start stepping up their game as they take on 6A competition in the last third of their season and in the post-season. Conner heads to 6A Campbell County this Friday night. 4) Covington Catholic (5A) 4-2 – No action for Cov Cath this week. The Colonels spent their week off recouping from a big loss to Ohio D3 power Columbus DeSales, and have their first district matchup of the season against 5A Grant County in Dry Ridge on Friday. 3) Cooper (6A) 5-2 – The Jags came away with another W on Friday, this time beating 5A Dixie Heights 28-13 at Dixie. However, looking closer, the 28 points came against the same team who allowed 40 points to 6A Conner, and 43 points to 6A Simon Kenton. Furthermore, the only team to hold Cooper to fewer points than Dixie was the Jag’s district foe, Simon Kenton. QB Lonaker and WR Hendrix both had huge nights for Cooper, with 259 yards and 4 TDs passing for Lonaker and 217 yards and 3 TDs receiving for Hendrix. However, final outcome of the game was not necessarily the greatest showing for the Jags as they are holding on to their #3 spot in NKY by the weakest of threads. Cooper takes on 6A Ryle this week in one of their biggest games of the regular season. 2) Simon Kenton (6A) 6-0 – No action this past week. The Pioneers have their second district competition of the season against 6A Boone County in Independence on Friday, with little threat to their record coming from the 0-6 Rebels. 1) Ryle (6A) 6-0 – Ryle handled 6A George Rogers Clark with no problems. Backups saw significant playing time in the game, and Ryle’s defense shut down the Cardinals offense, holding them to less than 100 total yards in the Raiders’ 38-6 victory. No change in the ranking, seeing as 6A Simon Kenton had the week off as well. Ryle takes on their hometown rival and 6A district opponent Cooper at home this week. Trending Up: With the lack of action this week, it’s tough to really mark teams trending up or down. However, 2A Walton-Verona, 2A Gallatin County and 2A Holy Cross all celebrated shut out wins, and 1A Beechwood dominated in a rout over 2A Newport. Trending Down: Again, not much to report on with numerous byes across Northern Kentucky, but troubles still continue for 2A Newport (1-5), 4A Holmes (4-2), and 5A Grant County (3-3), who all took losses on Friday. Player Of The Week: Dante Hendrix (Cooper) Hendrix continues to show his scholarship quality, as he added 217 yards receiving and 3 more touchdowns to his stats for the season. He also pulled down an interception on the defensive side of things. Game Of The Week: Cooper (6A) vs. Ryle (6A) It’s certainly the most anticipated game across Northern Kentucky this week, with district/playoff implications riding on the outcome of the game, as well as some serious hometown pride for the two teams from Union. Additionally, it will be another gauge to see how things are playing out between the teams in NKY 6A as we look to learn a little more about how Simon Kenton and Ryle stack up against one another before they play on October 21st.

We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 1) 5A Covington Catholic (6-0) – No action this past week. The Colonels return to action this Friday when they host Indianapolis, IN-3A Bishop Chatard (3-4). 2) 6A Ryle (4-2) – Ryle hosted Indianapolis, IN-6A Cathedral High School (3-4) on Friday. The Fighting Irish came in favored, and left with a 23-17 win over the Raiders. Ryle had a good showing in the ESPN-televised game, despite the loss, and actually had more overall offensive yardage than Cathedral: 345 to 277. QB Easton Pilyer passed for 167yds and 2 TDs, while RB Jake Chisholm was held to 94yds rushing. It was only the second 3) 6A Simon Kenton (7-0) – The ‘Neers added another win to their record on Friday, this time beating 1A Beechwood in a surprisingly close call. The Tigers led 7-0 until about halfway through the 2nd quarter, but Simon Kenton was able to pull out a 22-14 win in the end. QB Matt Shearer had 185yds passing, and ran for 79yds and 2 TDs, while the remaining points came via 3 FGs and 1 XP off the foot of Christian Seger. Will Parks led the defense with 10 tackles. The Pioneers take on 6A Boone County (1-5) this Friday in their first district challenge. 4) 1A Beechwood (4-2) – The Tigers played 6A Simon Kenton (7-0) on Friday, and surprised most folks by leading the game for the first 17 minutes of regulation. Simon Kenton had a 3pt lead going into the half, and eventually beat Beechwood 22-14 in the Tigers’ second loss in 3 weeks. QB Brayden Burch went 21-36 passing for 167yds, while RB James Davis rushed for 102yds and 2 TDs. Beechwood plays 1A Bellevue (4-2) on Thursday in their 1st game of district competition. 5) 5A Highlands (2-4) – No action this past week. Highlands will return to action this Friday in 5A district play against Dixie Heights (3-4). 6) 6A Campbell County (4-2) – The Camels played host to OH-DIII Mt. Healthy (2-4) on Friday, and beat the Fighting Owls 41-6. RB Alex Dowds rushed for 114yds and 2 TDs, but the big performance of the night was from QB Austin Hoeh, with 327yds and 4TDs in the air. WR Jack Comer also caught 7 passes for 188yds and 2 TDs. Friday’s game put Hoeh over the 1,000yd mark for passing this season, with 1,154yds total. The Camels play 6A Conner (4-2) this week at Conner. 7) 6A Conner (4-2) – The Cougars played 2A Lloyd Memorial (4-2) on Friday, and as expected, they notched another victory, beating the Juggernauts 40-28. QB Cooper Gullion passed for 267yds and 2 TDs, and rushed for 60yds and another 2 TDs. WR Jaylen Watkins caught for 148yds and 1 TD. On the defensive side of things, Clayton Boyd had a very impressive 16 tackles, and Andrew Davis added 11 more tackles of his own. Conner plays 6A Campbell County (4-2) this week in Hebron. 8) 2A Newport Central Catholic (3-3) – No action this past week. The Breds return for 2A district play this Friday against Covington Holy Cross (0-7). 9) 4A Scott (3-2) – Scott hosted 4A Harrison County (0-7) on Friday for their 2nd district matchup, and improved to 2-0 in their district by beating the Thorobreds 46-6. QB Chad Ohmer went 4-5 passing for 106yds and 2 TDs, while RB Alex Thurza ran for 109yds and 1 TD. RB Nelson Perrin added another 96yds and 2TDs. Junior Jared Kelsay led the defense with 15 tackles, and Alex Thurza added to his offensive performance with 9 tackles on the defensive side of the ball. Scott hosts OH-DIV Taft (4-2) this Friday. 10) 2A Walton-Verona (3-2) – No action this past week. The Bearcats will return for 2A district play this Friday against Trimble County (5-1). GAME OF THE WEEK: 5A Covington Catholic (6-0) vs. Indianapolis Bishop Chatard (3-4) Covington Catholic seems to be firing on all cylinders, and despite Bishop Chatard’s 3-4 record coming into the game, the two teams had very similar performances against their one common opponent, St. Francis DeSales out of Columbus, OH. Chatard beat DeSales (4-2) back on Sept. 15th by a score of 42-7, and Covington Catholic beat DeSales the following week by a score of 35-7. Should make for a big game in Park Hills. TRENDING UP: 1A Ludlow (6-0) – The Panthers continued their undefeated streak on Friday by beating 1A Bishop Brossart (4-2) by a score of 54-27. Ludlow plays 1A Dayton (1-5) this week in their first district matchup. 5A Dixie Heights (3-4) – The Colonels have begun putting their 0-4 start behind them, and beat 6A Cooper (0-6) on Friday 36-20. Dixie Heights plays 5A Highlands (2-4) this week in their first district matchup. TRENDING DOWN: 1A Bracken County (5-2) – The Polar Bears lost 34-14 to 1A Paris (5-1), starting themselves off 0-1 in their district. Bracken County faces 1A Bishop Brossart (4-2) in their second district matchup. 6A Simon Kenton (7-0) – In a rarified case of “trending down despite winning”, the Pioneers dropped a spot in the power rankings because of their surprisingly unimpressive 22-14 win over 1A Beechwood (4-2). Simon Kenton plays 6A Boone County (1-5) in their first district game this Friday.

  23. Thanks to Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry -"Making Northern Kentucky Smile" for sponsoring our 2017 Northern Kentucky Power Rankings! We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 1) 5A Covington Catholic (4-0) – Covington Catholic took a trip across the Ohio River on Friday to play OH-DII Kings (1-2). Job 1 for the Colonels was stuffing Kings’ RB Nak’Emon Williams, who had averaged over 200yds per game in his first two outings, and Cov Cath did so by holding him to only 53yds on Friday in their 35-14 victory. AJ Mayer connected with seven receivers for 262yds and 3 TDs passing, plus another TD on the ground. AJ’s younger brother, sophomore Michael Mayer, led the defense with 9 tackles including 2 sacks. Covington Catholic heads down Dixie Highway this week for their annual rivalry match against 1A Beechwood (3-0). 2) 6A Simon Kenton (4-0) – Simon Kenton had their first home game of the season on Friday against 5A Dixie Heights, and sent them home with a loss, beating the Colonels 59-21. The Pioneer offense rebounded from the week prior with 410 total yards, and QB Matt Shearer passed for 254yds and 4 TD’s in the romp. Hayden Fisher had 4 catches for 97yds and 2 TDs, and Brandon Smith added another 110yds on 4 catches of his own. Simon Kenton hosts a struggling 6A Cooper team (0-4) this Saturday. 3) 6A Ryle (3-1) – Ryle is starting tighten up their game and get back to form after a couple of rocky weeks the at the beginning of the season. This week the Raiders took on 5A Highlands (2-2) and handed the Birds their second loss of the season. The offense had an impressive 570 total yards, led again by RB Jake Chisholm who put up 265yds and 5 TDs. QB Easton Pilyer added 118yds and 1 TD in the air, plus 136 more yards on the ground. Caden Mogge and Jackson Saladin led the D with 11 tackles each, and Justin Selby added another 10 tackles. Ryle hosts 6A Campbell County (3-1) this week. 4) 1A Beechwood (3-0) – Going into Friday’s game, most everyone outside of Ft. Mitchell considered Beechwood the underdog against 3A Corbin (3-1). It was definitely a battle, but the Tigers came out on top, beating the Redhounds 36-29. QB Brayden Burch passed for 231yds and 3 TDs, but it was senior Daniel Mescher and with his 110yds receiving and 3 FGs that proved to be the most clutch performance for Beechwood. The Tigers will have another major battle on their hands this week when they play host to the rival 5A Covington Catholic Colonels (4-0) on Friday. 5) 5A Highlands (2-2) – Highlands continues to leave Bluebirds fans wondering how their team is progressing after losing 49-27 to 6A Ryle (3-1) on Friday at home. The Birds are averaging a respectable 29 points per game, but on the flipside, their opponents are averaging 40 points per game against them. QB Carl Schoellman had another stellar performance, passing for 362yds and 4 TDs despite the loss. Receivers Nick Veneman caught for 155yds and TDs, and Jared Wogan caught for 126yds and 2 TDs of his own. Highlands welcomes 3A Lexington Catholic (2-2) to Fort Thomas this week. 6) 6A Campbell County (3-1) – The Camels put another one in the W column on Friday, winning 47-27 over the 6A Cooper Jaguars (0-4). Campbell County’s defense had a couple of small breakdowns that the Jags were able to capitalize on, but QB Austin Hoeh and RB Alex Dowds managed to successfully lead the offense to the team’s victory, with Hoeh passing for 206yds and 4 TDs, and Dowds rushing for 178yds and 3 TDs. Campbell County takes on their toughest opponent yet this Friday when they head to Union to take on the 6A Ryle Raiders (3-1). 7) 6A Conner (2-1) – Looking purely at yardage last week, the game between the Cougars and the 4A Scott Eagles (2-2) was a close one, with Conner’s offense gaining 367 total yards, and Scott’s offense gaining 355 total yards. The scoreboards spoke otherwise, though, with the Cougars coming away with a 47-27 win. Andrew Davis and Tate Niederman led the defense with 11 tackles a piece, while QB Cooper Gullion passed for 113yds and 2 TDs on the offensive side, along with RB Trevor Courts’ 163yds and 2 TDs rushing. Conner plays 5A Dixie Heights (0-4) at Dixie this week. 8) Newport Central Catholic (2-2) – The Breds had another tough loss this week, losing 54-29 to 3A Belfry. New Cath’s offense had a hard time finding much success rushing (93yds), and despite recovering 7 Belfry fumbles, the defense had a hard time stopping the Pirates’ run game (332yds). QB Paul Kremer connected with four different receivers for TDs, passing for 213yds in the loss. This week Newport Central Catholic will host the defending 2A champs, Christian Academy Louisville (4-0). 9) 4A Scott (2-2) – The Eagles are now 1-1 against teams from higher classes. This week they took a 47-27 loss at the hands of 6A Conner (2-1). Scott has had some struggles when it comes to their passing game this season, but QB Chad Ohmer was able to connect 8 times for 123yds and 1 TD in the air on Friday, and five different ball carriers ran for 265yds and 3 TDs on the ground, including a fourth straight 100+ yard performance for RB Quincy Perrin. The Eagles will be regrouping this week during their bye week. 10) 2A Walton-Verona (3-1) – Walton-Verona had a shutout romp over the 2A Holy Cross Indians on Friday, sending the Indians back to Latonia by scoring 56 unanswered points on them. It was the second shutout win in a row for the Bearcats. QB Garrett Jones passed for 100yds and 1 TD, and Walton-Verona had 6 different ball carriers rush for TDs. The offense put up 496 total yards in the victory. The Bearcats head to Lexington to take on 2A Lexington Christian Academy (4-0) on Friday. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 4 1A Beechwood vs. 5A Covington Catholic Both teams are ranked #1 in their respective classes, statewide. Both teams come into the game undefeated. Covington Catholic is boasting their best start to a season in 25 years, and Beechwood is boasting what may be their most talented team top-to-bottom in over a decade. On top of that, this is undoubtedly a rivalry week, with the two schools located within 2 miles of one another. Many of these young men grew up playing backyard ball at one another’s houses. Many of their fathers and uncles played against one another, and some of their fathers and uncles even played for the other team. It’s a big game for these two…and if you want a seat, you’d better get there early! TRENDING UP: 1A Beechwood (3-0) – The Tigers had a huge win over 3A Corbin this week, and in doing so, took down one of the best 3A contenders in the state. 5A Covington Catholic (4-0) – The players on the team weren’t even alive the last time Cov Cath had a start to their season like this one. The Colonels beat OH-DII Kings this week 35-14. 3A Ludlow (3-0) – The Panthers are currently enjoying their first 3-0 start since 2004 after putting a 40-7 beating on the 2A Gallatin County Wildcats (2-2) on Friday. TRENDING DOWN: 2A Carroll County (1-2) – The Panthers were on the wrong side of a big shutout this week, losing 56-0 to 1A Kentucky Country Day (4-0). This week they take on Eminence (3-1). 4A Holmes (0-3) – The Bulldogs are still searching for their first win this season, and lost 27-6 to the 6A Boone County Rebels on Friday. This week they take on 2A Lloyd Memorial (2-1). 2A Holy Cross (0-4) – The Indians are no doubt in a rebuilding year following their trip to the 2A semifinals last year. They have been outscored 225-36 in the first four games of the season. This week they take on Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, OH (1-2).

  25. Thanks to Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry -"Making Northern Kentucky Smile" for sponsoring our 2017 Northern Kentucky Power Rankings! We encourage everyone to patronize all of our sponsors, and you can visit Northern Kentucky Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 2047 Centennial Boulevard in Independence, KY. THE RANKINGS: 1) 5A Covington Catholic (3-0) – There weren’t many eyebrows raised around Northern Kentucky when Cov Cath beat 6A Cooper (0-3) on Friday. The Colonels came out hard and had a running clock on the Jaguars less than half way through the second quarter, winning 41-0. Quarterback AJ Mayer went 6 for 8 passing, with 160 yards and 3 TDs in the air, despite downpour conditions during the game. Covington Catholic will head north to play OH-DII Kings (1-1) this week in the final week of action for the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown. 2) 6A Simon Kenton (3-0) – Simon Kenton took on the 6A Conner Cougars on Friday and pulled out a 13-6 win, despite trailing 6-0 early in the 2nd quarter. The weather certainly took a toll on the Pioneers, who only had 165 yards total offense. That’s a whopping 359 yards less than their average in the first two games of the season. Simon Kenton will host their first home game of the year this Friday when they welcome the 5A Dixie Colonels (0-3) to Independence. 3) 6A Ryle (2-1) – There have been some questions asked about Ryle early this season, but it looks like the Raiders are starting to get the kinks ironed out as they claimed their second victory of the year in their home opener against 6A Boone County (0-2). Ryle started a running clock in the game just under 5 minutes into the 3rd quarter. RB Jake Chisholm posted 202 yards and 4 TDs rushing, and had one reception for 27 yards. On the defensive side, DB Justin Selby had 14 tackles in the game. The Raiders are on the road this week when they play 5A Highlands (2-1). 4) 1A Beechwood (2-0) – The game was sloppy and a little ugly on Friday for the Tigers, but so were a lot of games around the state. There weren’t many teams whose offensive play didn’t suffer because of the weather, and Beechwood was no different, only managing 178 yards of total offense. Scoreless at the half, the lone touchdown in their game against 2A Somerset (1-2) came in the 4th quarter Friday, on a Logan Caslteman run. Beechwood won 7-0, and will look to improve upon their record when they host 3A Corbin (3-0) in the Crosstown Showdown. 5) 5A Highlands (2-1) – It was tough sledding for a most everyone last week, but it was particularly tough for Highlands, who headed to Georgetown on Thursday night to take on 6A Scott County (3-0). The red birds walloped the Bluebirds 71-20, giving Highlands one of the most lopsided losses in program history. Despite the loss, QB Carl Schoellman was 16/26 passing, with 244 yards and 2TDs in the air. Wideout Nick Veneman caught for 105 yards and 1 TD. The Birds will be back in Ft. Thomas this week when they host the 6A Ryle Raiders (2-1). 6) 6A Campbell County (2-1) – All told, Campbell County was one of the few teams around the state whose overall performance wasn’t that impacted by the weather last week. Although their passing game was slightly off pace, there wasn’t much else different about their game in the 35-7 win over 2A Newport Central Catholic. RB Alex Dowds once again carried the offense, rushing for 207 of the Camels’ 350 yards total offense. Campbell County will head to Union to play 6A Cooper (0-3) this week. 7) 6A Conner (1-1) – The Cougars fought hard on Friday night, and raised a lot of eyebrows when they lead early in their game against 6A Simon Kenton (3-0). Despite the lead, and the tied score at the end of the first half, Conner couldn’t hang on for the win, and lost 13-6. Junior defensive me Tate Neiderman and Andrew Davis each racked up 10 tackles in this defensive grinder of a game, while the offense struggled to get much going, posting a mere 159 total yards for the night. Conner heads to 4A Scott (2-1) on Friday. 8) Newport Central Catholic (2-1) – New Cath took their first mark in the ‘loss’ column on Friday, losing 35-7 to the 6A Campbell County Camels. The Breds just never were able to get things rolling offensively, with a lackluster 171 total yards in the rain. Brady Hicks led the defense with an imposing 15 tackles, and Hunter Cain tacked on another 9 tackles in the game. NCC will play host to the 4-time defending 3A champion Belfry Pirates (1-1) on Friday in Newport. 9) 4A Scott (2-1) – Scott was one of few teams around NKY who avoided most of the weather last week, playing 2A Covington Holy Cross (0-3) at Thomas More College on Saturday. The Eagles headed back to Taylor Mill on the top side of a 62-13 trouncing of the Indians. Brothers Nelson and Quincy Perrin carried for 134 and 135 yards, respectively, and combined for 4 TDs, including 1 TD on a 26 yard pass reception by Quincy. The Eagles’ offense had ten different players cart the pigskin, and they put up a commanding 527 total yards of offense, with 475 of those via the run. Scott takes on 6A Conner (1-1) this week in Hebron. 10) 2A Walton-Verona (2-1) – It’s the Bearcats’ first appearance of the year in the NKY Power Rankings. After a 1-point loss last week to 1A Kentucky Country Day (3-0), Walton-Verona came back with a vengeance, and routed the 4A Holmes Bulldogs (0-3) in a 41-0 shutout win. The offense had a total 301 yards in the win, with an unheard-of FOURTEEN players carrying the ball, combining for 294 of those yards on the ground. Walton-Verona will be playing host to 2A Covington Holy Cross (0-3) on Friday this week. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 4 1A Beechwood vs. 3A Corbin Despite their 2-0 record, we’ve yet to really see Beechwood “open it up” on a team in their first two games. It’s not too likely that we’ll see that this week either when the 3A Corbin Redhounds roll into Fort Mitchell. The Redhounds are 3-0 this season, and undoubtedly still looking to improve on their 2016 season that ended a week short of the 3A Championship at the hands of the eventual state champion Belfry Pirates. It’s going to be a slugfest this Friday at Beechwood! TRENDING UP: 1A Bellevue (2-1) – The Tigers added another win to their record by beating 1A Bishop Brossart (2-1) on Friday at Gilligan Stadium. 6A Campbell County (2-1) – Campbell County came back from a 1-point loss to 5A Highlands (2-1) with a solid 35-7 win over 2A Newport Central Catholic (2-1). 2A Walton-Verona (2-1) – The Bearcats gave 4A Holmes (0-3) a serious 41-0 pounding this past week. They are likely to improve to 3-1 with a game against 2A Covington Holy Cross (0-3) on Friday TRENDING DOWN: 6A Cooper (0-3) – Friday night was not pretty for the Jags, who had a running clock hung on them less than half way through the 2nd quarter on Friday in their 41-0 shutout loss to 5A Covington Catholic (3-0). Cooper hosts 6A Campbell County (2-1) this Friday. 5A Dixie Heights (0-3) – Dixie is still looking for their first win of the season, and is regrouping this week and preparing to take on 6A Simon Kenton (3-0) after a 49-0 shutout loss to OH-DI Milford (2-0) this past Saturday. 5A Highlands (2-1) – We know the Birds are still working to get back to previous form, but a 71-20 loss to 6A Scott County (3-0) has to make you wonder how far out they still are. Highlands hosts 6A Ryle (2-1) this week. PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: AJ Mayer (Covington Catholic) – Quarterback managed 160 yards passing and 3 TDs on six completions against 6A Cooper. Alex Dowds (Campbell County) – Running back rushed for 207 yards and 2 TDs against 2A Newport Central Catholic. Dowds is averaging 195 yards rushing per game.
