This is a season long contest and you can enter in any or all regions that you wish. At the end of the regular season, the winner of each region and the next five highest point totals statewide (the Wild Cards) will compete during the playoffs for statewide bragging rights on BluegrassPreps.

We are doing our Staying Alive Contest again this season. As before the concept is pretty simple--but we have made a couple of changes. The object is still to pick the winners of the 6 games every week. This season there will be a $200 prize for the winner! But it's not quite as simple as just picking winners, there is a lot of strategy involved. Here's how it works: There is a major change this season so be sure to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! •Each week you will pick six teams that you believe will win that week. These teams can be from Any Classification. •Teams chosen must be playing a team from their class or HIGHER. EXCEPTION: You may choose 6A teams that are playing other 6A teams OR 5A teams. •You may only pick an individual team to win one time. For example, if you pick Trinity to win in Week #1 you cannot pick Trinity again the rest of the season. •In past seasons once you missed one game or picked a game that did not meet the contest criteria you were eliminated. This season, however, will be DOUBLE ELIMINATION. It will take 2 missed games to eliminate you. For example if you pick five out of six games in Week #1 you would be eligible to continue on to Week #2. If you miss a second game in Week #2 or any week after that then you are out. Also, if you miss 2 games in one week you are out. •If you cannot submit an entry with 6 teams that are playing a team in their class or higher each game that you cannot submit counts as a miss. •If you do not submit an entry for any week you are out. •Everyone that has one miss or less will be able to advance to the next week. •If you are eliminated or do not compete in any week you will not be eligible to continue. •This season we will giving a cash prize of $200 to the winner. •The contest will run until there is just one winner. Your entry should be in the following format: TEAM TEAM TEAM TEAM TEAM TEAM Do not post anything that is not an entry. If you do so, the post(s) will be deleted. If you are not eligible to participate (eliminated in a prior week), DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD. The deadline for all entries is 5 pm (EST) Friday. Unless you pick a Thursday game, then it is 5 pm (EST) Thursday. Good luck to all!

QB Carl Schoellman passed for 161yds and 2 TDs, and RB Larry Wilson rushed for 171yds. It was kicker Nick Bowman’s 3 FGs that helped push the Birds into the 4th quarter lead, along with a pick-6 from Ben Sisson on the defensive side, but it just wasn’t enough for the win. Highlands has the week off before returning to action in 5A district play against Dixie Heights (4-2) on October 6th. 6) 6A Campbell County (3-2) – No action this week.

Backup QB Hunter Cain led the offense on Friday, passing for 123yds and 3 TDs. Kyle Kelly rushed for 73yds, and caught 2 passes for 53yds and 2 TDs.

GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 6 1A Ludlow (5-0) vs. 1A Bishop Brossart (4-1) Ludlow is currently enjoying the best start to a football season in over 20 years, and will definitely be bringing their A-game to the field on Friday as the Mustangs come to Ludlow intent on upsetting the favored Panthers.

  9. 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 (2-0) – Cov Cath headed down I-75 on Friday to take on 3A Lex Cath (1-1), and showed that they have no intention of taking their foot off the gas this season. AJ Mayer was able to connect with seven different receivers for 164yds and 2TDs in the air, while RB Casey McGinness rushed 19 times for 161yds and 2TDs. The Colonels defense didn’t allow any scoring on Friday, with Lex Cath’s only points coming via a safety on an errant Cov Cath snap. Junior LB Jacob Shriver led the D with 10 tackles. Covington Catholic will play 6A Cooper (0-2) this Friday in the first ever football game played between the two schools. 2) 6A Simon Kenton (2-0) –Simon Kenton was also down in Lexington on Friday. The ‘Neers were taking on fellow 6A competitor Bryan Station (0-2), beating the Defenders 49-27. Simon Kenton has outscored Station by a combined 81 points over the last three games in the series. QB Matt Shearer threw for just shy of 200yds and 4TDs, and as strong a performance as that was, it was sophomore RB Austin Hammack’s 19 rushes for 228yds and 2 TDs that was the highlight of the game. The Pioneers will be heading to Hebron this Friday to play 6A Conner (1-0). 3) 6A Ryle (1-1) – In the third matchup of the week between a NKY and Lexington team, the Raiders got off to a rocky start, allowing 6A Henry Clay (0-2) to run up 21 unanswered points before coming back for a 34-28 win overtime. Mr. Kentucky contender Jake Chisholm carried much of Ryle’s offense, carrying 20 times for 268 yards and 4 TDs. The offense ended the game with a total 371 yards, with 100 of those gained on the ground. The Raider passing game remains a question, and will undoubtedly be something for Coach Englar and company to focus on in practice this week as they prepare for 6A Boone County (0-1) on Friday. 4) 1A Beechwood (1-0) – In their season opener against 2A Lloyd Memorial (0-1), the Tigers came out looking a little rusty after last year’s 1A championship season. Despite numerous penalties, and gameplay that was not quite as crisp and mechanized as we’re used to out of Beechwood, the Tigers still played hard and were able to head back to Ft. Mitchell with a 35-14 win over Lloyd. QB Brayden Burch connected 12 times for 160yds and 2 TDs passing. Logan Castleman caught for 70 of those yards and 1 TD, while adding 28 more yards rushing and 1 INTs on the defensive side of the ball. Beechwood had a total 4 interceptions on Friday. This week they will be playing 2A Somerset (1-1) on the road. 5) 5A Highlands (2-0) – Highlands welcomed 6A Campbell County (1-1) to Ft. Thomas on Friday, and despite trailing 14-7 at the half, the Birds were able to enjoy a 27-20 overtime win in their home opener. Opposite to Week 0, their offense was heavier on the passing game Friday, with QB Carl Schoellman hooking up 20 times for 174 yards. Junior Bailey Armstrong’s pick-6 to tie things up with less than 5 minutes in regulation that sparked Highlands’ opportunity to win it in OT. The Bluebirds have their hands full when they travel to Georgetown tonight to play 6A Scott County (2-0). 6) 6A Campbell County (1-1) – Close but no cigar. Despite never trailing the 5A Highlands Bluebirds (2-0) during regulation play on Friday, the Camels couldn’t hang on in overtime, losing 27-20 to the Birds. Campbell County offense outgained Highlands by over 150yds in the game, with Alex Dowds carrying 25 times for 169yds and 1 TD. The defense held Highlands to less than 50 yards rushing in the loss. Campbell Couny will host 2A Newport Central Catholic (2-0) this Friday. 7) 6A Conner (1-0) – Conner looked rough in their pre-season scrimmage against 1A Beechwood (1-0), and on Friday against 6A Boone County (0-1) they seemed to struggle for consistent strong play, battling to pull out a 21-13 win over the Rebels. The Cougar offense had 166yds in the air and a mere 8 pass completions, including 1 TD. Their other 199 offensive yards came on the ground. The defense had an impressive three players with tackle numbers in the double-digits, including LB Andrew Davis with a whopping 18 tackles. Conner hosts 6A Simon Kenton (2-0) this Friday. 8) Newport Central Catholic (2-0) – New Cath was noticeably absent from the pre-season power rankings. In Week 0, the Breds came out to prove their place by beating the 4A Scott Eagles 17-7 on the road. Junior QB Hunter Cain went 6-12 passing for 125 yds, while junior RB Kyle Kelly added on 16 yds and 1 TD rushing. On the defensive side, sophomore LB Daniel Craig wowed with 12 tackles, while Hunter Cain, Jason Decker, and Hezekiah Miller each added on another 9 tackles of their own. The Thoroughbreds will host 6A Cooper (0-1) this week for their home opener. 9) 4A Scott (1-1) – Scott showed up with a chip on their shoulders on Friday, ready to rebound from their loss to 2A Newport Central Catholic (2-0) in Week 0. They did so with a 42-27 victory over 5A Dixie Heights (0-2). Sophomore RB Quincy Perrin rushed for 211yds and 1TD in the game, while brother Nelson Perrin rushed for 49yds and 2 TDs. Safety Jared Kelsay contributed 14 tackles on the defensive side of things for the Eagles. Scott takes on 2A Holy Cross (0-2) this Saturday at Thomas More College. 10) 6A Cooper (0-2) – The Jag’s passing game struggled for a second week in a row, but when your rushing game is struggling equally as badly, your team is in for a bad night. A bad night is what it was for Cooper, who lost 29-7 to 2A Newport Central Catholic (2-0) on Friday. The Jaguar defense did what they could, holding New Cath to under 300 total yards offense, but the offense was not able to provide much of a help in the effort, only managing 180 total yards in the loss. Cooper will play 5A Covington Catholic (2-0) in Park Hills on Friday. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 2 5A Highlands vs. 6A Scott County Highlands’ two victories thus far may not have been the prettiest wins in the program’s history, but they don’t have to be pretty, just as long as they’re another tic in the ‘W’ column. However, we’re going to get to see tonight just how far the Birds have come since last year’s disappointing 3-8 season when they head down to Georgetown to take on undefeated 6A Scott County at Toyota Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:30. TRENDING UP: 1A Bishop Brossart (2-0) – The Mustangs are off to a solid start once again, and have only allowed 1 TD in two games. They take on 1A Bellevue tonight at Bellevue’s Gilligan Stadium. 5A Covington Catholic (2-0) – The Colonels are firing on all cylinders heading into a Week 3 match against 6A Cooper, fresh off a 48-2 shellacking of 3A Lexington Catholic. 2A Newport Central Catholic (2-0) – Another week, another win over a team in a higher classification. New Cath takes on 6A Campbell County (1-1) Friday on the road. TRENDING DOWN: 6A Cooper (0-2) – Things aren’t going well when a 6A team is losing to a 2A team, even if that 2A team is Newport Central Catholic. It looks to be another rough week when Cooper heads to 5A Cov Cath on Friday. 5A Dixie Heights (0-2) – Dixie definitely dropped this week after losing 42-27 to 4A Scott. The red Colonels will still be on the hunt for their first W when they head to Milford (OH) this Friday. 2A Holy Cross (0-2) – Holy Cross has allowed 107 points to be scored on them in two games, and has not yet posted over 150yds total offense in a game. Ouch. The Indians host 4A Scott this Saturday at Thomas More College.
  10. 1) 5A Covington Catholic (10-0) – 1992, 2017, 2018, 2019. Those are the four times the Colonels’ football program has chalked up “10-0”. Cov Cath finished out their third straight undefeated regular season on Friday by beating 5A Conner 45-7 to take first place in 5A district 5. The Colonels came out and scored quickly, but things escalated quickly late in the 2Q after Conner’s lone TD brought the score to 24-7 with 2:18 to go in the half, only to have Cov Cath change that to a 45-7 running clock with less than 10 seconds left in the half. QB Caleb Jacob was 13-21 passing for 305yds and 4 TDs. RB Michael Boydston ran 6 times for 40yds and 2 TDs. WR Ethan Reardon had 4 receptions for 119yds and 2 TDs, and TE Michael Mayer had 5 receptions for 148yds and 2 TDs. Mayer also had 4 tackles, a forced fumble, and an interception on the defensive side of the ball, and Owen Nally & David Brunson both led the defense with 5 tackles a piece. Cov Cath has their bye week this week before starting their 5A playoff run at home on Friday against Cooper (5-5). The Colonels previously beat the Jaguars 45-6 on September 27. 2) 6A Simon Kenton (6-3) – The Pioneers have won three straight, with their latest win coming in last Friday in a 44-14 victory over 6A Ryle (5-5), giving Simon Kenton the undisputed 6A district 6 title. Freshman QB Chase Crone had his biggest passing game yet, going 17-29 for 279yds, 3 TDs, and 1 INT. He was also the teams #2 rusher in the game, with 11 carries for 91yds and 2 TDs. RB Austin Hammack had 129yds on 20 carries, good for the team’s remaining TD. The defense also provided 2 points in the game on a sack by DL Jack Milton, good for a safety. LB Nate Walker and LB Aric Hoffman both had 9 tackles a piece to lead the defensive effort, and LB Luke Huesman had 8 tackles in the game. Simon Kenton will be wrapping up their regular season in Morrow, OH on Friday against the OH-DII Little Miami Panthers (7-2). 3) 5A Highlands (6-4) – The Birds wrapped up their regular season on Friday with their 4th and final district matchup, beating 5A Cooper (5-5) in Union. Highlands’ offense may have been outgained by Cooper’s, but they were tops on the scoreboard, winning the game 14-7. Their passing was minimal in the game, with QB Collin Hollingsworth going 2-8 in the air for 6yds. Both of the Bluebird touchdowns came via RB Sawyer Depp, who rushed 12 times for 128yds and 2 TDs. RB Joe Buten also provided 76yds on his 16 carries. Defensive stats have not been reported for the game. Highlands will have this week off before returning to action next Friday for a rematch in the 1st round of the playoffs against Conner (7-2) who previously beat the Birds 20-17 on October 4. 4) Conner (7-2) – Things didn’t go how the Cougars would have liked them to on Friday. After showing some fight and resolve early in the 2nd quarter against Covington Catholic (10-0), things came apart for Conner, with the final score ending up at 45-7 in the Colonels’ favor. QB Jared Hicks had a solid game, despite the loss, going 18-25 passing for 170yds, and rushing 6 times for 24yds and 1 TD. WR Colton Roy led the offense in yardage with 67yds on 6 receptions, and WR Caleb Ervin was second with 5 receptions good for 56yds. Parker Hitzfield led the defense with 9 tackles, and Drew Cobble, Caleb Ervin, Frankie Salzarulo and Clayton Melcher each had 4 tackles a piece. The Cougars will be wrapping up their regular season at home on senior night against 6A George Rogers Clark (5-4). 5) 6A Ryle (5-5) – Ryle finished up their regular season on Friday with a 44-14 loss to 6A Simon Kenton (6-3), giving the Raiders the #2 spot in 6A district 6. QB Keegan Stanken was 16-28 by air in the game, good for 157yds and 1 INT. RB Kyle England led the offense with 137yds on his 17 carries, good for both of Ryle’s touchdowns. WR Ryan Planck had 4 receptions good for 40yds, WR Will Watkins had 37yds on 2 receptions, and WR Leonel Galan had 4 receptions for 36yds. DB Mathias Cusick and DB Johnathan Coker each tallies 13 tackles a piece, LB Max Hungler had 8 tackles, and DE Noah Duke had 7 tackles and a fumble recovery. The Raiders will also be taking a week off from football action before returning for their first round playoff rematch against Dixie Heights (3-6). Ryle previously beat Dixie 13-8 on October 18. 6) 2A Beechwood (5-4) – Things are finally looking solid for Beechwood, with the team improving to a winning record on Friday thanks to a 38-0 shutout over 2A Newport (7-3). The Tigers were 3-0 against their competition in 2A district 6, and beat the district opposition by a total combined score of 143-6. It was a relatively quiet passing game on Friday, with QB Cam Hergott going 12-18 in the air good for 90yds. Hergott also led the team rushing with 58yds on 10 carries, good for 2 TDs. RB Avery Courtney also rushed 9 times for 31yds and 1 TD, and RB Cole Stammer rushed 8 times for 28yds and 2 TDs. The top receiving performances came from WR Brady Moore and WR Mason Williams, who had 5 receptions for 41yds and 4 receptions for 25yds, respectively. DE Gage Dollenmeyer logged 2 fumble recoveries and sack in the game, DL Carter Noah had a sack, and DL Xavier Campbell also scooped up a fumble. Beehcwood will wrap up their regular season at home on senior night against 1A Newport Central Catholic (7-2). 7) 5A Cooper (5-5) – Cooper finished their regular season in frustrating fashion on Friday, losing 14-7 to district competitor Highlands (6-4), and doing so despite outgaining the Birds’ offense 264-204. QB Drew Warth was 20-38 passing on the night, good for 165yds. Unfortunately it was the field possession achieved by 3 interceptions that game Highlands the offensive advantage to win the game. RB Anthony Witschey rushed 20 times for 76yds, and WR/RB Jeremiah Lee rushed 9 times for 25yds and a TD in addition to his 7 receptions good for 53yds. Freshman WR Zion Mason had 64yds on his 6 receptions, and also had an interception for the Jaguars from his spot in the defensive backfield. LB Joe Poage led the defense with 12 tackles, DB Chester Hale had 8 tackles, and LB Ethan Bosway had 7 tackles. Cooper is one of several teams around NKY with a bye week this week, and the Jags will be back on the game field in Park Hills for the first round of 5A playoffs taking on the Covington Catholic Colonels (10-0) again. Cooper previously lost to Cov Cath 45-6 back on September 27. 8) 1A Newport Central Catholic (7-2) – The Thoroughbreds finished up their district run on Friday by beating 1A Bellevue (2-7) with a 50-7 final score. Much like Beechwood, New Cath was 3-0 over their district opponents, thumping the rest of 1A district 4 with a combined score of 148-17. QB Paul Kremer was 15-18 passing for 201yds and 1 TD, and backup QB Dom Morgan was 2-2 passing for 55yds and 1 TD. WR Caleb Jefferson had 6 receptions for 110yds, while WR Preston Baggett had 55yds and 1 TD on his 2 receptions, and WR Cody Mueller had 40yds and 1 TD on his 3 receptions. RB Jahmir Ackerson led the running game with 6 carries for 85yds and 1 TD, and rushing TDs were also scored by Joey Runyon, Joe Doeker, Landen Davis, and Luke Landrum. Daniel Craig had 5 tackles from his spot at linebacker, and defensive backs Joe Doeker & Justin Schneider each had 4 tackles. New Cath will wrap up their regular season on Friday in Fort Mitchell against 1A Beechwood (5-4). 9) Dixie Heights (3-6) – The Colonels notched their third win of the season on Friday, beating 6A Campbell County (0-9) to claim the #3 spot in 6A district 6. QB Logan Landers was 12-21 passing in the game, for 133yds and 1 TD, and also led the team in rushing with 91yds on his 7 carries. RB Leon Marshall tallied 82yds and 3 TDs on his 16 carries, and the remaining touchdown on the ground came thanks to a 4yd carry by FB Cayden Anderson. WR Kel Hawkins had 4 receptions for 49yds and 1 TD, and WR Jacob Iames had 4 receptions for 44yds. LB Colin Smith, S Pierce Rohlman, DE Zach Ernst, LB Cayden Anderson, and Dl Rhys Brown each had 5 tackles a piece, and LB Bradyen Wulfeck had 4 tackles. Rohlman also had an interception, while Wulfeck picked off another pass and returned it 65yds for Dixie’s remaining touchdown in the game. The Colonels will finish off their regular season at home on Friday against 4A Scott (6-3). 10) 4A Holmes (6-3) – The Bulldogs pulled of one of the biggest wins in recent memory on Friday, upsetting 4A Scott (6-3) 58-38 to win 4A district 6. It’s the first district championship for Holmes since 2010, and their first win over the Eagles since 2012. QB Quantez Calloway was 6-10 passing in the game for 123yds, 1 TD and 1 INT, and he also ran the ball 15 times for 78yds and 1 TD. Caloway’s twin brother Tayquan led the offense with 203yds on 14 carries, good for 3 more TDs. WR Tyelon Tate had 4 receptions in the game, good for 110 of their 123 yards through the air, as well as the team’s one touchdown passing. DL Damarcus Winn and DB Daylan Griffin both recovered fumbles in the game, while DL Damario Foster and DB Tayquan Calloway both had pick-six interceptions. The Dawgs will wrap up their regular season in Bellevue on Friday against the 1A Tigers (2-7). TRENDING UP 2A Walton-Verona (6-3) – The Bearcats got off to a rocky 2-3 start this season, but they’ve managed to put together 4 straight wins in recent weeks to finish 4-0 in district competition. Their latest win was a 42-0 victory over 2A Shawnee (0-8). 4A Holmes (6-3) – The Bulldogs are currently enjoying season under Ben Nevels who is in his 7th season as head coach. And they have reason to celebrate, after pulling off a 58-38 upset of 4A Scott (6-3) on Friday to win the district 5A Covington Catholic (10-0) – I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the Colonels' roll through a third straight 10-0 regular season. Cov Cath's latest win came in the style of a 45-7 first-half running clock victory over 5A Conner (7-2) on Friday to clinch the district title. TRENDING DOWN 1A Dayton (4-5) – The Greendevils continued a backward slide on Friday with a disappointing loss to district competitor 1A Ludlow (6-3). Despite fighting back in the 3Q to briefly take a lead in the game, Dayton lost 54-46. It’s been good to see some real fight out of the Greendevils this season, though. 2A Gallatin County (1-8) – It hasn’t been very pretty for the Wildcats this season. Despite coming off a big win over 2A Shawnee (0-8), Gallatin County lost big on Friday in a 54-0 shellacking at the hands of 2A Carroll County (6-3). 5A Cooper (5-5) – The Jaguars ended their regular at the .500 mark on Friday with a disappointing loss to 5A Highlands (6-4) to finish off things at the bottom of their 5A district. GAME OF THE WEEK (RESULTS): WEEK 9 5A Covington Catholic vs. 5A Conner 2019 has seen Conner enjoying one of their better seasons in recent years, heading into their Week 9 match-up with Cov Cath with a 7-1 record and a shot at the district title. The Colonels had other things in mind though, heading into Hebron and quickly going up 21-0 in the 1Q. Conner cut the Cov Cath lead to 17 with a late 2Q touchdown, bringing the score to 24-7 with 2:18 left in the half, only to have the Colonels score a TD 7 plays later, followed by a Conner fumble on the first play after the kickoff leading to a 1-play TD for Cov Cath, a quick 3-and-out for Conner, and yet another Colonel TD with seconds left to make the score 45-7 going into the half. That would stand as the final score in the contest, with Cov Cath heading home with the #1 spot in the district and Conner claiming #2. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 10 1A Beechwood vs. 2A Newport Central Catholic With both schools’ standing among the “old guard” of northern Kentucky football programs, it’s somewhat surprising that they’ve only met on the football field 42 times in as many years. The record between the two stands at 28 wins to 14 in the favor of Beechwood, and in the last 10 years, the record has similarly stood at 7 wins to 3 in the favor of the Tigers. This year is primed as well as any for New Cath to notch their next win over Beechwood.
  11. 1) 5A Covington Catholic (2-0) – The Colonels absolutely rolled in their second game of the season, and in similar fashion to the last two seasons, they’ve had a running clock on their opponents in each of their first two games of the season. Cov Cath’s defense was lights out on Friday, holding Campbell County’s offense to -47 total yards in the 49-0 win. QB Caleb Jacob was 9-12 passing for 131yds and 4 TDs. Michael Mayer continued to dominate offensively when he got his hands on the ball, rushing for 1 TD on 1 carry, and scoring 2 more TDs on his 2 receptions in the game. Michael has scored a touchdown each time he has gotten ahold of the football on offense this year. Cov Cath hosts 3A Lexington Catholic (2-0) and their UK commit QB Beau Allen on Friday. 2) 5A Highlands (1-1) – Highlands made the trip down to Corbin on Friday to take on TN-5A Knoxville Catholic (2-0) in the Cumberland Falls Pigskin Classic. They were facing a tough opponent, with Knox Cath coming into the game bragging the four D1 recruits and the #4 spot in USA Today’s rankings of Tennessee football programs. The Bluebirds fought hard, with QB Collin Hollingsworth going 12-26 passing for 3 TDs, and rushing for another TD, and WR Adam Weyer posted 100yds on 4 receptions, but the total offensive yards told the story of the game. Knox Cath put up 544 total yards offense in the game to Highlands’ 362, and the Birds came home with a 31-28 loss. Highlands will host 6A Campbell County (0-2) on Friday. 3) 2A Beechwood (0-1) – The Tigers opened their season on Friday at Georgetown College against 1A Paintsville (2-0), and made the drive home to Fort Mitchell with a 19-14 loss. Beechwood came out and scored the first 14 points in the game, but the scoring was all Paintsville for the rest of the game, with the Blue Tigers scoring a TD in the 4th quarter to pull ahead and take home the win. Beechwood came out of the game with some injuries to key players in their linebackers and running backs, so we will see how much impact those injuries have on the team in the weeks to come. QB Cam Hergott still put up some all-star numbers in the game, going 10-17 passing for 124yds and rushing for another 173yds and 2 TDs. Beechwood will be on the road again this week when they head to Somerset to take on the 2A Briar Jumpers (2-0). 4) 6A Simon Kenton (1-1) – Simon Kenton’s second game of the season decidedly did not go the way they would have hoped, with the Pioneers hosting OH-DII Anderson (1-0) and coming away with a 44-16 thumping. Freshman QB Chase Crone was 9-25 passing for 186yds and 1TD, and junior QB also spent time behind center managing another 55yds and 1 TD in the air. The story of the game was the ‘Neers inability to get a running game going, with a paltry 21yds rushing, and begging the question: When will we see senior RB Austin Hammack, the team’s top returning rusher? On the defensive side, DL Vuk Sajlovic led the team with 12 total tackles, and LB Aric Hoffman and DB Zack Koenes each had 11 tackles. Simon Kenton will head across the river to take on OH-DI Oak Hills (0-1) on Friday. 5) 5A Cooper (2-0) – Cooper still may look a little slow to get going, but they’ve still managed to preserve an undefeated record after bringing home a 13-7 win over 2A Newport Central Catholic (1-1) on Friday. QB Drew Warth was 7-17 passing for 101yds and 1 TD, and WR Jeremiah Lee proved his mettle by scoring both TDs in the game, with 72yds and 1 TD receiving, and 95yds and 1 TD rushing. The Jags’ offense is still working out their kinks, with just under 500 total yards offense in their first two games, but the defense has held strong and kept their opponents to only 431yds in those games, including the 234yds posted by New Cath on Friday. LB Spencer Handel led the defense with 9 total tackles, and DB Zach Armour & DB Jeremiah Lee each provided an interception. Cooper hosts crosstown rival 6A Ryle (1-1) on Friday. 6) 1A Newport Central Catholic (1-1) – If you’re going to stumble during the regular season, at least you can do it in a non-district game against a team from a higher classification. That’s what happened on Friday, with the Thoroughbreds coming up short in a 13-7 loss to 5A Cooper (2-0). QB Paul Kremer couldn’t get the Breds passing game going, only going 7-20 for 74yds and 2 INTs. After only getting 32yds in New Cath’s season opener against 6A Campbell County (0-2), junior RB Joey Runyon came out strong on Friday, rushing 9 times for 113yds and 1 TD, and adding on another 5yds on 1 reception. Defensive stats were not reported for the game. The Thoroughbreds will head across the Ohio River on Friday to take on OH-DIV Roger Bacon (1-0). 7) 4A Scott (1-1) – Coach Eric Turner posted his first win over his former program as the Eagles sent 2A Lloyd Memorial (1-1) back to Erlanger with a 17-0 shutout loss. Scott’s offense is still working to find its legs, only coming up with 194 total yards in the game, but it proved to be enough, with QB Gus Howlett going 7-26 passing for 63yds and 1 TD, and RB Quincy Perrin leading the running game with 57yds and 1 TD. WR Cam Patterson led the receiving corps with 2 receptions good for 34yds and 1 TD. Defensive stats were not reported for the game. The Eagles will be headed to Crestview Hills on Friday to take on 2A Covington Holy Cross (1-1) at the Indians’ new home for football at Thomas More University. 8) 6A Ryle (1-1) – Ryle raised a few eyebrows around northern Kentucky on Friday after coming back from a 37-0 shutout loss at the hands of 5A Covington Catholic (2-0) and putting up a 34-10 win over 5A Conner (1-1), who was rolling on from a beating of 6A Madison Central (0-2) the week before. After an offensive struggle against Cov Cath only earned them 89 yards last week, the Raiders came back by putting up 143yds in the air, and 252yds on the ground, with RB Kyle England working hard for almost 200yds rushing and 4 TDs, and the remaining touchdown coming on a 19yd connection with WR Elijah Cusick. Defensive stats were not reported for the game. Ryle will be heading across town to take on 5A Cooper (2-0) on Friday. 9) 5A Conner (1-1) – After a solid showing in their season opener against 6A Madison Central (0-2), Conner took a step backwards in their game on Friday, losing 37-10 to 6A Ryle (1-1). The Cougars defense struggled badly to stop bleeding yardage to the Raiders’ running game, and their offense was unable to get a running game started. Jared Hicks had a solid performance as hurler, going 14-23 passing for 161yds, and WR Justin Daniels came up with 98yds on 6 receptions, but with 4yds total on the ground, Conner was unable to find the endzone. Senior defensive back Caleb Ervin led the defensive effort for the Cougars with 13 total tackles, including 1 tackle for a loss, and 1 forced fumble. Conner will have their 3rd straight game on the road this Friday when they head to Edgewood to take on 6A Dixie Heights (1-1). 10) Boone County (2-0) – The Rebels are off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2011. Coach Bryson Warner has people excited about high school football in Florence, and it’s showing on the scoreboard. Boone County started off the season with a 20-6 win over 4A Holmes (1-1), and on Friday they managed a 34-28 victory over 6A Paul Laurence Dunbar (1-1). Hey diddle-diddle, they’re coming up the middle. Junior RB Evan Curee led the offensive charge with 193 yards and 3 TDs on 34 carries, while senior RB Eli Rossi had 123yards and 2 TDs on 12 carries. QBs Kaden Craft and Samuel Brown combined to go 4-4 passing for 49yds, and leading the offense to a total 407yds. Evan Curee also led the defense with 12 total tackles from his position at linebacker, while LB Dave Bodenbender had 8 tackles and a sack. Boone County will head to Erlanger to take on 2A Lloyd Memorial (1-1) on Friday. TRENDING UP 6A Boone County (2-0) – The Rebels are moving in the right direction with a 2-0 start to their season. They beat 6A Paul Laurence Dunbar (1-1) on Friday 34-28. 1A Dayton (1-1) – The Greendevils looked good in their season opener, despite a loss to 1A Bishop Brossart (1-1), and improved their own record with a win over rival 1A Bellevue (0-2). 4A Holmes (1-1) – The Bulldogs came back from a loss in their season opener with a strong 34-18 win over 5A Grant County (1-1). TRENDING DOWN 1A Bracken County (0-2) – The Polar Bears are not off to the start they had hoped for after suffering their second straight shutout loss at the hands of 1A Ludlow (1-1). 6A Campbell County (0-2) – The Camels dropped out of the top 10 in the NKY power rankings with a 49-0 shutout loss to 5A Covington Catholic (2-2) with cast of new offensive starters struggling to find itself in the first 2 games. 5A Conner (1-1) – The Cougars fall from the #5 spot to #9 after losing 37-10 to 6A Ryle (1-1) on Friday. Conner’s struggling offense only managed 4 yards on the ground in the loss. NORTHERN KENTUCKY STAR PERFORMANCES OF THE WEEK: QB Matthew Campbell (Pendleton County) – 7-14 passing for 163 yards and 2 TDs, 9 carries for 75 yards and 1 TD rushing, 1 two-point conversion. RB/LB Evan Curee (Boone County) – 34 carries for 193 yards and 3 TDs, 12 tackles. QB/DB Kaleal Davis (Newport) – 7-15 passing for 163 yards and 1 TD, 5 carries for 136 yards and 3 TDs rushing, 5 tackles. RB Kyle England (Ryle) – 17 carries for 197 yards and 4 TDs rushing.

QB Andre Mumphrey (Carroll County) – 13-25 passing for 149 yards and 2 TDs, 10 carries for 96 yards and 1 TD rushing, 6 tackles and 1 sack. GAME OF THE WEEK (RESULTS): WEEK 1 2A Lloyd Memorial vs. 4A Scott Coach Eric Turner has his first shutout win as the skipper of the Scott Eagles after beating Lloyd 17-0. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 2 5A Cooper vs. 6A Ryle This game is going to be the first of the noteworthy measuring sticks for the Northern Kentucky Power Rankings this season, where we will see how things are measuring up in high school football around Boone County. Ryle seems to have picked things up in Week 1 after their being shut out in Week 0, and Cooper has two wins, but it’s hard telling how stiff their competition has been as of yet. This week should give us a better look at how these two teams (and their competitors) measure up against one another.
  12. 1) 5A Covington Catholic (4-0) – Covington Catholic did essentially what was expected of them, they soundly beat a struggling 1-3 team from 6A Dixie Heights with a final score of 45-0. It was the third shut-out the Colonels’ four games played thus far in 2019. Caleb Jacob was 10-17 passing for 201yds, 1 TD and 1 INT. It’s tough to pick a “workhorse” from the offensive backfield, with Daniel Felix, Michael Boydston, and Owen Nally all having regular touches from RB, but the both Felix and Boydston had a pair of touchdowns each. The remaining two touchdowns were scored on a run by RB Adam Holtz and a 24yd reception by WR Ethan Reardon. Despite a quiet offensive game, LB Michael Mayer led the defense with 10 tackles and a half a sack. The Colonels head to Fort Mitchell tonight for the 39th edition of their rivalry game against 2A Beechwood (1-2). 2) 5A Highlands (3-1) – Highlands made it two in a row on Friday; their second straight win of the season, and their second win in row over 6A Simon Kenton (2-2). Highlands was on the road in Independence on Friday, and the Birds put the game away in the second half, scoring 2 unanswered TDs to end the game in a 28-7 win. Collin Hollingsworth was 19-36 passing for 193yds and 2 TDs thrown to receivers Jacob Welch and Hunter Ahlfeld. RB Tyler Brune had 89yds and 1 TD on 15 carries, and Hollingsworth ran it 14 times for another 42yds and a TD. Brycen Huddleston led the defense with 31 tackles including a sack and 3 tackles for loss, while Jacob Brass and Jason Noe each had an interception. Highlands will host 6A Ryle (3-1) tonight. 3) 2A Beechwood (1-2) – Beechwood came out in their Friday home-opener with a chip on their shoulder after dropping their first two 2019 games, and sent the 4A Corbin Redhounds (2-2) back down I-75 with 26-10 loss. It was a big game for the Tigers, who many folks conjectured could face a 0-4 start to their season. QB Cam Hergott came out strong, going 11-20 passing for 206yds and 1 TD and rushing 6 times for another 52yds. RB Cole Stammer carried the ball 13 times for 78yds and 1 TD, and RB Mitchell Corts had 5 carries for 17yds and 1 TD. WR Mason Williams led the receivers for the night with 107yds on 5 receptions, including 1 TD. Kicker Colin Graman added 8 points on 2 FGs and 2 PATs on 3 PAT attempts. Beechwood has their work cut out for them this evening when they host 5A Covington Catholic (4-0). 4) 6A Ryle (3-1) – Ryle has jumped Simon Kenton in the rankings – for now. The Raiders are appearing to show that their week 0 loss appears more and more to have been little more than an early-season stumble after they drummed 5A Boone County (2-2) out of town on Friday with a 46-0 beat-down. Bradyn Lyons was the primary QB again this week, and was 9-13 passing for 161yds and 1 TD thrown to WR Connor Lee. RB Kyle England once again racked up the TDs, with 4 trips to the endzone after 12 carries for 148yds. Connor Lee also had 1 TD rushing in addition to his TD reception. Sophomore LB Dylan Talmon led the Raiders D with 8 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Ryle has a big challenge tonight when they head to Fort Thomas to take on 5A Highlands (3-1). 5) 6A Simon Kenton (2-2) – Win loss, win loss. That’s the record thus far for Simon Kenton in 2019, who had their second home loss of the season on Friday, falling 28-7 to 5A Highlands (3-1). The Pioneers scored late in the 1Q to tie the game at 7, and were still only down by 1 TD going into the 4Q, but late turnovers sealed the deal in the loss. QB Chase Crone was 11-22 passing for 125yds, 1 TD, and 2 INTs, and Simon Kenton’s lone touchdown came on a 19yd connection with WR Evan Mulberry. The ‘Neers defense was led by LB Aric Hoffman and DB Zack Koenes, who had 12 and 10 tackles each, respectively, and the defense was also able to get to Highlands’ quarterback 4 separate times. Simon Kenton hosts 3A Taylor County (4-0) this week. 6) 5A Cooper (3-1) – Friday was a big night for Cooper. After scratching out two hard-fought wins and following that with at tough loss to Ryle, the Jags pulled off a win with their largest margin of victory since November of 2015. Cooper hosted 6A Campbell County (0-4) and sent the Camels home with a 36-0 loss. QB Drew Warth had his biggest passing game of the season thus far, going 10-17 and throwing for 1 TD and 2 INTs. The touchdown came on a connection with WR Xavier Smith, who had 75yds and 1 TD in the game on 5 receptions. Brendon Tye had a big night running the ball, with 167yds and 2 TDs 14 carries. Rushing TDs also cam from Jeremiah Lee and Anthony Witschey. Defensively, the team was led by LB Spencer Handel with 10 tackles, and DL Adam Sand and DB Anthony Witschey each had 8 tackles in the game. Cooper is heading southwest tonight to take on the 3A DeSales Colts in Louisville. DeSales may be 1-2, but their losses include a 31 point loss to 6A St. Xavier and a 3 point loss to 3A Lexington Catholic. This one is going to really test the Jaguars’ mettle. 7) 1A Newport Central Catholic (2-2) – A win is a win is a win. Although it may not have been the biggest win over the most powerful of teams, it was still another game where the Breds finished things on the right side of the scoreboard. New Cath had a 10-7 win over 2A Walton-Verona (2-2) Friday. It was the second time this season that their passing game wasn’t what they had likely hoped it to be, with QB Paul Kremer only connecting with receivers enough for 96yds and 1 TD, with 1 INT. Kremer let the running game, with 79yds on 9 carries, and RB Joey Runyon had 59yds on 16 carries. Runyon also had 3 pass receptions, good for 18 yards and the 1 Thoroughbred TD, and WR Caleb Jefferson had 26yds on 3 receptions. The remaining 3 points were scored on a 34yd Sam Levin field goal in the 3Q to re-gain the lead and take home the win. Defensive stats were not reported for the game. New Cath hosts 2A Covington Holy Cross (1-3) tonight. 8) 5A Conner (3-1) – The Cougars made it two in a row on Friday, this time by beating the 2A Lloyd Memorial Juggernauts (2-2) at home in Hebron with a 24-12 win. QB Jared Hicks came up huge, going 23-39 for 300yds on the nose, 2 TDs, and 1 INT. It was “Hicks and Roy” all night for Conner, with Hicks finding RB/WR Colton Roy 8 times for 126yds and 1 TD, and Roy also led the ground attack with 45yds on 7 carries. RB Douglas Abdon added 11yds and 1 TD on 12 carries, and WR Justin Daniels had 7 receptions for 78yds and scored the team’s remaining TD. On the defensive side of the ball, sophomore middle linebacker Parker Hitzfield had a really big night, racking up 14 total tackles in the game. Conner plays host to 6A Campbell County (0-4) tonight. 9) 4A Scott (2-2) – The Eagles are one of three teams in the NKY top ten that took a loss on Friday. And this one is one of those games that Coach Turner and the Eagles wish they could have back. Scott’s offense put up a respectable 269 total yards in the 38-33 loss, but their problems came on the defensive side of the ball, with the OH-DV Bethel-Tate Tigers (2-1) rolling up either 388 or 416 yards passing on them, depending on whose book you’re looking at. Offensively, QB Gus Howlett was 16-31 passing for 173yds, 4 TDs, and 2 INTs. RB Quincy Perrin led the game on the ground with 87yds and 1 TD on 17 carries, and WR Cameron Patterson had 6 catches for 95yds and 1 TD. WR Jackson Hardin had 3 catches for 51yds and 2 TDs, and WR Carson Craycraft had 3 catches for 28yds and 1 TD. Sophomore LB Damond Hacker led the Eagles defense with 7 tackles, including 1 for a loss. Scott will play 5A Boone County (2-2) tonight in Florence. 10) Lloyd Memorial (2-2) – Lloyd makes the final of the three NKY top ten who dropped one on Friday. The Juggs were on the road in Hebron, and took a 24-12 loss on the chin compliments of the 5A Conner Cougars (3-1). Sophomore QB Jacob Davidson had a decent night passing, despite the loss, connecting with receivers 8 of 24 times attempted, good for 173yds and 1 TD. WR Treshawn Cody was his favorite receiver, with 4 receptions for 101yds and the team’s 1 TD by the air. Their rushing TD came thanks to RB Michael Sassin, who carried the ball 6 times for 12yds. RB Dakota Theil led the team’s rushing attack with 27yds on 14 carries. Defensive stats were not reported for the game. Lloyd will face 3A Mason County (2-2) tonight at home. TRENDING UP 1A Dayton (2-1) – If you wanted to find the last time the Greendevils won two games in a row, you would have to go back the better part of a decade October of 2012. But Dayton put up a second straight win on Friday with a 49-14 victory over 2A Gallatin County (0-4). 2A Beechwood (1-2) – Beechwood managed to get their first win of the season, beating 3A Corbin (2-2) on Friday 26-10. The Tigers set themselves up with a wood-chipper of an early season schedule, but it will undoubtedly have them tough for their first ever run at the 2A playoffs. 2A Newport (4-0) – The Wildcats continued their undefeated season with a 63-8 win over 1A Bracken County (0-4), and Newport’s defense is doing it in lights out style, only having allowed 28 points in their first 3 games. They have outscored their opponents 162-28 so far this season. TRENDING DOWN 1A Bracken County (0-4) – It’s been tough sledding in Brooksville for new head coach Tim Carver thus far in 2019, with the Polar Bears unable to scratch out a win yet. Their loss on Friday was a big one, with 2A Newport (4-0) beating them 63-8. 2A Covington Holy Cross (1-3) – After a win in week 0 to end a 23 game losing streak, the Indians have slipped and now dropped 3 games straight, with the latest 38-20 loss coming at the hands of Cincinnati Country Day (OH). 5A Boone County (2-2) – After starting out 2-0, the Rebels have now dropped to 2-2 after losing two straight. Their loss on Friday was a 46-0 shutout by 6A Ryle (3-1). GAME OF THE WEEK (RESULTS): WEEK 3 5A Highlands vs. 6A Simon Kenton The Bluebirds topped the Pioneers for a second week in a row, but the 28-7 final score doesn’t make it look quite as close a game as it actually was. Highlands came out first to score, and then Simon Kenton tied it at 7-7 just before the end of the 1Q. Highlands scored again in the 2Q, and the score remained 14-7 until midway through the 4Q when Highlands intercepted the ball and returned it deep into the redzone for a go-ahead touchdown. Then the Birds’ fourth TD of the game once again came thanks to an interception. A tough game, and a good win for Highlands. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 4 5A Highlands vs. 6A Ryle You’ve got to like seeing how things pan out when you have two top-five teams playing one another in any region. Most folks will be looking at Highlands as the favorite in this one, but Ryle is going to bring all they have to David Cecil Memorial Stadium to knock out the Birds.

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. [ATTACH=CONFIG]64214[/ATTACH] THE RANKINGS: 1) 5A Covington Catholic (9-0) – Covington Catholic won their district for a second year in a row by winning 49-9 on Friday over the 5A Dixie Heights Colonels (3-6). The Colonels have started a running clock on all six of their Kentucky opponents thus far this year. Stats have not yet been reported by Cov Cath, but in the first quarter of action, the blue Colonels scored 5 touchdowns via 5 different players: AJ Mayer, Malachi Pike, Luke Lenihan, Casey McGinness, and Grant Dyer. McGinness added a 2nd TD in the 3rd quarter, and soph QB Daniel Felix accounted for the 7th and final Cov Cath TD. The Colonels take on 6A Campbell County (6-3) this Friday to wrap up the regular season. 2) 6A Ryle (7-2) – The Raiders are celebrating their second straight win over the 6A Simon Kenton (9-1) this week, after beating the Pioneers 56-38 to once again regain the top spot in 6A. And there’s no talking about this game without mentioning RB Jake Chisholm, who carried 42 times for 449yds and 6 TDs on Friday, putting him at #7 on the KHSAA’s all-time list of single game rushing records, and bringing his name a little closer to the limelight in the hunt for this year’s Mr. Football award. DB Zach Rytlewski led the defense with 15 tackles in the game. Ryle has 5A Dixie Heights (3-6) this week in their regular season closer. 3) 6A Simon Kenton (9-1) – Spoiled again. Simon Kenton fought their way through 9 straight wins, but in the final game of their season, the Pioneers just couldn’t best 6A Ryle (7-2), losing 56-38 to the Raiders. Despite the disappointing loss, QB Matt Shearer still went 19-29 with 307yds and 3 TDs passing. Defensively, Will Parks led with 15 tackles, JJ Courtney had 11 tackles, and Clay Cogswell had 10 tackles. Simon Kenton has their bye week this week, and will open their playoff run at home on November 3rd against 6A Jeffersontown (3-6). 4) 1A Beechwood (7-2) – Beechwood once again won their 1A district with a 63-6 win on Friday over 1A Dayton (1-8). The Tigers beat their district competition by a combined 175-6 this season. QB Braydon Burch connected with receivers 5 times for 159yds and 2 TDs, and RB James Davis carried the ball 4 times for 101yds and 1 TD. Logan Castleman, Harrison Heist, Noah Howard, and Luke Jeffries all rushed for 1 TD a piece as well. On defense, there were two pick-6 TDs, scored by Harrison Heist and Jake Massie. Beechwood finishes up the regular season this week in their annual rivalry match on Friday against 2A Newport Central Catholic (5-4). 5) 6A Campbell County (6-3) – Campbell County finished out their district play on Friday, finishing in second place after winning 54-7 over 6A Boone County (1-8). QB Austin Hoeh was 13-18 passing for 243yds and 4 TDs. There were 5 different players who scored for the Camels, with RB Alex Dowds ending up the only player to score more than once, with 1 TD rushing and 1 TD receiving. Campbell County will conclude their regular season this week with a big game against the undefeated 5A Covington Catholic Colonels (9-0). 6) 5A Highlands (4-5) – The Birds had a long bus ride on Friday down to Bowling Green to take on 5A Greenwood (3-6), and no doubt the ride was made a little shorter on the way home after Highlands bested 47-35. QB Carl Schoellman and backup QB Grady Cramern combined to pass for over 200 yards in the game, but all 5 of the offensive TDs were scored by RB Cooper Schwalbach, who carried 24 times for 181yds and 5 TDs. Casey Green added a defensive pick-6 TD for the Highlands defense. The Bluebirds will be fighting to fend off a losing regular season record when they take on 6A Boone County (1-8) on Friday in their closer. 7) 6A Conner (4-5) – The Cougars have continued to struggle for consistency this season, and it once again showed when Conner was beaten 21-20 by 6A Cooper (2-7) on Friday. QB Cooper Gullion was 11-20 with 108yds and 1 TD passing and another TD Rushing. Jared Hicks had 1 TD receiving, and Matt Simpson picked up a Conner fumble and ran it in for Conner’s other TD. The Cougars will close out their regular season in Lexington on Friday as the first NKY football program to take on 6A Frederick Douglass (7-2) in Douglass’ first year as a school. 8) 2A Lloyd Memorial (7-2) – The Juggernauts are celebrating big in Erlanger after ending a longtime drought in district titles with a Friday night win over 2A Covington Holy Cross (0-10). They added an exclamation point with their biggest win of the season, beating the Indians 62-13. QB Jordan Fann had 4 completions, good for 132yds and 2 TDs, and rushed for another 97yds and 2 TDs. Receiver Isaiah Voet had 2 receptions for 119yds and a TD on each reception. Travon Mason rushed for 208yds and 3 TDs, and Anthony Deras had 98yds and 2 TDs in the win. Lloyd will close out their regular season against 4A Scott (6-3). 9) 2A Newport Central Catholic (5-4) – After a surprise district loss on Friday the 13th to 2A Lloyd Memorial (7-2), the Breds came back on Friday with a chip on their shoulder and put a 50-6 shellacking on crosstown rival 2A Newport (2-7). QB Paul Kremer went 7-8 with 88yds and 2 TDs passing, and backup QB Hunter Cain went 2-2 with 57yds and 1 TD in the air. RB Kyle Kelly rushed 9 times for 136yds and 3 TDs in the win. While there were no immediate standouts on the defensive side, the Breds D had a whopping 32 players with tackles in the game – that’s over half of their 57-man roster with tackles. New Cath will finish their regular season on the road this Friday against 1A rival Beechwood (7-2). 10) 4A Scott (6-3) – The Eagles added another win to their record on Friday with a 36-6 win over 4A Holmes (2-7). QB Chad Ohmer went 3-4 passing for 110yds and 2 TDs. Scott once again showed their ability to pull out an array of offensive tools, with no one player accounting for over 97yds in the game. 11 different players rushed the ball, and 3 players had receptions. TDs were added by David Patrick, Quincy Perrin and Alex Thurza on the ground, and David Patrick and Nelson Perrin both added TDs receiving. The Eagles finish up the regular season on Friday against 2A Lloyd Memorial (7-2). GAME OF THE WEEK: 2A Lloyd Memorial (7-2) vs. 4A Scott (6-3) Lloyd will be rolling into the game on a high after winning their 2A district after a long dry-spell, and Scott is coming in as the champion of their own district in 4A. The Eagles lost early in the season to 2A Newport Central Catholic, and the Juggernaughts beat the Breds two weeks ago in an upset. Both teams lost to 6A Conner, Lloyd losing by 12 and Scott losing by 20. Both teams beat 2A Covington Holy Cross with identical scores of 62-13, and both teams beat 4A Holmes with identical scores of 36-6. Should make for a close game! TRENDING UP: 2A Lloyd Memorial (7-2) – The Juggs were undefeated in their 2A district, winning Friday against 2A Covington Holy Cross. This week they play 4A Scott (6-3). 6A Ryle (7-2) – The Raiders beat an undefeated 6A Simon Kenton team on Friday to become the #1 6A team in NKY. This week they play 5A Dixie Heights (3-6). TRENDING DOWN: 4A Holmes (2-7) – The Bulldogs continued a 3 game skid with a loss on Friday to 4A Scott. This week they play 2A Newport (2-7). 6A Simon Kenton (9-1) – The Pioneers missed out on a perfect regular season again by losing on Friday to 6A Ryle (7-2). They have the week off before beginning their playoff bid on Nov. 3 against 6A Jeffersontown (3-6). PLAYER OF THE WEEK: RB Jake Chisholm (Ryle) – I would be extremely remiss if I didn’t make a point of mentioning Jake Chisholm in the power rankings this week. Jake was an integral part of Ryle’s big win over Simon Kenton this week, carrying the ball 42 times for 449yds and 6 TDs. That performance places him at #7 all-time in the KHSAA’s record book for yards gained in a single game. Congratulations Jake!

  18.

As before the concept is pretty simple--but we have made a couple of changes. The object is still to pick the winners of the 6 games every week. But it's not quite as simple as just picking winners, there is a lot of strategy involved. Here's how it works: Please be sure to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! •Each week you will pick six teams that you believe will win that week. These teams can be from ANY Classification. •Teams chosen must be playing a team from their class or HIGHER. EXCEPTION: You may choose 6A teams that are playing other 6A teams OR 5A teams. •You may only pick an individual team to win one time. For example, if you pick Trinity to win in Week #1 you cannot pick Trinity again the rest of the season. •In past seasons once you missed one game or picked a game that did not meet the contest criteria you were eliminated. This season, however, will be DOUBLE ELIMINATION. It will take 2 missed games to eliminate you. For example if you pick five out of six games in Week #1 you would be eligible to continue on to Week #2. If you miss a second game in Week #2 or any week after that then you are out. Also, if you miss 2 games in one week you are out. •If you cannot submit an entry with 6 teams that are playing a team in their class or higher each game that you cannot submit counts as a miss. •If you do not submit an entry for any week you are out. •Everyone that has one miss or less will be able to advance to the next week. •If you are eliminated or do not compete in any week you will not be eligible to continue. •All teams chosen MUST be playing against an in-state team. Only KY schools playing against KY schools are allowed to be chosen. From this point on if a KY school is playing an out of state school it will count as a loss regardless of the outcome of the game. •The contest will run until there is just one winner. McCreary Central was not placed in a classification during realignment. Because they were previously a 3A team they will continue to be seen as a 3A team. Please choose accordingly if you choose to use a team that is scheduled to play McCreary Central. Your entry should be in the following format: TEAM TEAM TEAM TEAM TEAM TEAM Do not post anything that is not an entry. If you do so, the post(s) will be deleted. If you are not eligible to participate (eliminated in a prior week), DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD. The deadline for all entries is 5 pm (EST) Friday. Good luck to everyone!!!!!

The BluegrassPreps Regional Contests give you chances to pick games in different parts of the state for prizes each week of the regular season. There will be five regional contests every week. You will have a chance to pick the winners in each region -- NKY, EKY, Lexington/Central KY, Louisville, and WKY. This is the NKY Contest. Each region will have five games to pick from each week. We pick the games, and you will pick the winner of each game, assigning your picks a point value of 7-5-3-2-1. The first tiebreaker is picking the team (of the ten teams in the contest) that scores the most points. You don't have to pick the highest scoring team, you just have to pick a team that scores more points than the team(s) picked by the member(s) you are tied with. The second tiebreaker is time. This is a season long contest and you can enter in any or all regions that you wish. At the end of the regular season, the top two finishers in each region will compete during the playoffs for statewide bragging rights on Bluegrasspreps. If a contestant qualifies in more than one region, then the highest point total statewide from a non-qualifying contestant will advance as a Wild Card. The best part is, if you win a weekly contest, you will receive your choice of BGP merchandise! There will also be merchandise for the overall season winner. The deadline for all entries is 5:00pm EST Friday. Be sure to post your winners and assign each of them one of the following point values (7-5-3-2-1) based on how strongly you feel that that team will win. (Please note that if your selections are NOT in the specified format, your ENTIRE set of picks will be voided.) 7 5 3 2 1 1st Tiebreaker 2nd Tiebreaker: Time of post.
