  2. BluegrassPreps.com is giving you a chance to show off your football knowledge statewide! 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. The NKY Contest is sponsored by Joe Lay & Sons Plumbing. For all your plumbing needs, please contact Joe Lay & Sons Plumbing at: Joe Lay & Sons Plumbing in Northern Kentucky and Southern Ohio 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. The games this week for the Northern Kentucky Area Regional contest are: Cooper vs. Highlands Covington Catholic vs. Ryle Holmes vs. Holy Cross (Covington) Lloyd Memorial vs. Walton-Verona Newport Catholic vs. Scott Be sure to pick ONE winner for each game and to indicate the point value!

  6. 10) Lloyd Memorial (2A / 1-1) – The Juggernauts quietly posted an impressive 8-3 record last season from Erlanger. This year, they’ve started things off very well by first beating 2A rival Walton-Verona last week, and then giving the perineal 1A powerhouse Beechwood a solid game in the first half of their contest this week before the Tigers’ experience was able to overtake the Juggs in the second half as they beat Lloyd 48-22. Look for Lloyd to give 5A Grant County all they can handle this week in Dry Ridge. 9) Newport Central Catholic (2A / 0-2) – Two losses in a row to open up the 2015 football season for the Breds. They lost 7-8 last week against 4A Scott, and this week they were beaten 0-35 by the 6A Cooper Jaguars. With their first 5 games all against teams from bigger classes, it’s tough to say where New Cath’s season in 2A will end up quite yet, but the Breds have a lot to improve on this year on offense, with only one touchdown to show for their first two games. On the bright side of things, New Cath is still looking forward to the return of standout running back Jacob Smith, and showed a lot of defensive resolve this week in their loss to Cooper. The Breds take on 6A Campbell County this week. 8) Scott (4A / 2-0) – For anyone who doubted the Eagles last week after only squeaking out a win against 2A New Cath, the Eagles have silenced your doubts. Scott took to the 5A Dixie Colonels this week in Edgewood, winning easily by 29 points under the Friday night lights. Dixie’s only score in the 38-7 contest came via a recovered fumble in the endzone after a botched snap by Scott in the first half. The Eagles take on the Newport Wildcats this Friday. 7) Beechwood (1A / 1-0) – The Tigers didn’t exactly come rolling out of the gate this week in their season opener against Lloyd, but there was no denying by the game’s end that Beechwood is still Beechwood. Winning 48-22 against the 2A Lloyd Juggernauts, the Tigers showed that they are willing to make the necessary adjustments and put out the effort to win their next 1A title. Beechwood makes the trip to Somerset this week to take on the 2-0 Briar Jumpers (2A). 6) Covington Catholic (5A / 0-2) – After losing by a touchdown to the 6A Ryle Raiders last week, there are a lot of questions about the Colonels that remain to be fully answered. They are still waiting to see what sophomore quarterback AJ Mayer can really do, they’ve lost their starting tailback for the season, and they’re still waiting to see how their starting defense can perform, with two of their key defensive players sidelined with injuries. The Colonels had a dismal showing this week in the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown, losing 57-7 against Cincinnati St. X, and only posting a dismal 21 yards on offense. Their schedule won’t give them much room to breathe, but we will see how Cov Cath fares in the weeks to come. 5) Campbell County (6A / 0-2) – After their week 1 loss to the East Central (IN) Trojans, Campbell County wasn’t cut any slack. This week they headed to Ft. Thomas to take on the 5A defending champion Highlands Bluebirds. Campbell County struck early, putting the first 7 points on the board, but the Birds did what they do best, taking over the game and putting up 38 unanswered points before the Camels were able to add on another 8 points near the end of the game. Campbell County will be looking to rebound against New Cath this week when the Thoroughbreds come to play them in Claryville. 4) Ryle (6A / 2-0) – The Raiders hang on at #4 . They may have only beaten 5A Covington Catholic by 7 points last week, but their offensive performance was far better than the score let on. This week Ryle traveled to Lexington, and although they struggled taking on 3A power Lexington Catholic in a late night game, the Raiders came home with the W, winning 31-24. Boone County shouldn’t give them any trouble this week, but with Highlands, Cooper, and Simon Kenton looming in the weeks to come, we’ll see what kind of grit this Ryle team really has. 3) Highlands (5A / 1-1) – Highlands was looking at their first 0-1 season in since 2002 this year after last Friday’s loss to the 6A Cooper Jaguars, and although 6A Campbell County drew first blood in this week’s game, there was not much stopping the Birds as they fought their way to a 38-15 win over the Camels. The Birds need to keep working to improve each week with teams like Bowling Green and defending 5A champs Pulaski County standing between them and their 24th state championship. 2) Cooper (6A / 2-0) – I said that last week that I won’t have any problem admitting when I didn’t have thing right, so here it is: Cooper is the #2 team in Northern Kentucky, and after seeing what they have done in their first two games this season, it looks like I underestimated them in the power rankings last week. We’re likely to find out who the #1 team in NKY is in Independence on September 18th. Cooper rolled over New Cath 35-0 this week. The Thoroughbred defense gave it all they could, but the Jags took it all in stride. Cooper is the real deal, and they travel to Lexington to take on the 6A Bryan Station Defenders this Friday. 1) Simon Kenton (6A / 2-0) – The Pioneers are yet to sow any doubts. With a solid win in week 1 against CAL, and now a 52-36 victory against 6A Bryan Station, there’s no denying that Simon Kenton will be the favorite as they travel to Hebron this week to take on the 6A Conner Cougars. The boys from Independence are giving it all they have to make their way back to Bowling Green for the 6A championship this December, and it’s going to take a quite an effort by any of the teams around the 6A bracket to stop them. Game Of The Week: Dayton (1A) vs. Pendleton County (3A) These two teams have both have a hard time winning in recent memory, but this Friday’s game looks to be fairly evenly matched as the Pendleton County Wildcats travel to Dayton to take on the Greendevils. Dayton comes to the game with a 0-2 record, and Pendleton County has an 0-1 record. Which of the two teams will turn up with their first win on the season? Trending Up: 2A Covington Holy Cross – The Indians are 2-0, beating the 2A Walton-Verona Bearcats 28-14 in their second straight week on the road. Holy Cross appears to have dusted themselves off after last year’s difficult 1-10 season. 1A Ludlow – The Panthers have gotten off to a 2-0 start for a second season in a row, this week beating the 1A Bracken County Polar Bears 24-6 in Brooksville. Are the Panthers turning the corner? Trending Down: 5A Dixie Heights – The Colonels are struggling this year after having seen one of their best ever seasons last year in their run to becoming the 6A runners up. Dixie was thumped hard by the 4A Scott Eagles this week, with their only points coming after a fumble recovery in the endzone. 2A Walton-Verona – The Bearcats are off to a rough start, being handed a loss by 2A Lloyd Memorial last week, and by losing again this week to the 2A Holy Cross Indians.
  7. 10) Newport Central Catholic (2A / 0-1) – The Thoroughbreds came out sloppy and flat in their season opener last week, losing to Scott 7-8. New Cath struggled on offense, with stud running back Jacob Smith out, and junior QB Patrick Henschen struggling to find his receivers. Their defense was their definite strength in their first game, but as everyone knows, it’s offense that wins games. The Breds face a major challenge this week taking on the Cooper Jaguars this Friday. The Jags will be riding high coming off their huge win over Highlands last Friday. New Cath needs to have all their big players, and will have to bring their A-game to win this week. 9) Dixie Heights (5A /0-0) – The Colonels have yet to open their regular season, but their scrimmage against 1A Beechwood seems to have validated some suspicions about how well the defending 6A runners up will perform after losing many of last year’s starters to graduation. It’s still hard to gauge the Dixie’s offense, as they were without their starting quarterback for the scrimmage. If they are still starting a backup quarterback this week against Scott, the Colonels may be looking at a particularly tough game against the Eagles this Friday in Edgewood. 8) Scott (4A / 1-0) – Their first game this past Friday may not have been the prettiest of performances, but after eking out a 8-7 victory against New Cath, the Eagles are taking the win for what it is, and they are moving forward to prepare themselves to take on Dixie Heights as the Colonels open up their season this week. It should be a good test for this Scott team to see how they continue to develop, and to build on any shortcomings they identified after their first big test this past weekend. 7) Beechwood (1A / 0-0) – The Tigers won’t be opening their season until this Friday, but they’re already moving up in the polls. With the way they handled 6A Dixie Heights in their final pre-season scrimmage, along with a not-so-stellar performance by New Cath in their own season opener, Beechwood has climbed two rungs from their #9 spot in the BGP Pre-Season Power Rankings. The Tigers will start their season on Friday in Erlanger against the Lloyd Memorial Juggernauts. 6) Campbell County (6A / 0-1) – The Camels had a rough week, beginning with the passing of a recent graduate and football standout, Mitch Kramer. With many of the players taking time out of their day on game day to attend Kramer’s funeral, it was undoubtedly a challenging day for them even without their game against East Central (Indiana) Trojans. The Trojans controlled most of the game this past Friday, but from all reports, the Camels never packed it in, punching in two late-game touchdowns in the 4th quarter to pull within three points of East Central. The Camels will be heading to Ft. Thomas to take on Highlands this Friday. 5) Covington Catholic (5A / 0-1) – Coming into their game against Ryle with a new coaching staff, a new quarterback, a completely new offensive scheme and playbook, and a couple of missing starters, it was hard to say what the Colonels would do. Although they came up short on the win, losing 28-35, they still traded touchdowns with the Raiders for most of the game. It would appear that the development of the defensive backfield will be one of the big missions for Cov Cath. The Colonels go to UC’s Nippert Stadium this Friday to take on a very highly touted Cincinnati St. Xavier team. 4) Ryle (6A / 1-0) – There were many who wondered what Ryle was going to look like this season. After a couple of seasons that had many questioning the Raiders, there was a lot of talk about what Coach Engler would be able to get this year out of his D1 quarterback, Tanner Morgan, and his senior star running back, Collin England. The Raiders managed to take it to the Cov Cath Colonels, posting over 450 yards passing, and walking away with a hard fought 35-28 victory. Ryle travels to Lex Cath this Friday to take on the Knights in the Traditional Bank Bluegrass Bowl. 3) Cooper (6A / 1-0) – Cooper’s biggest question coming into the season was how things would look in the quarterback position for the Jaguars. Nathan Brown’s opening pass – a 72 yard touchdown – seems to have answered that question. At 5’8”, Cordell-Armstrong is a punchy little running back, but his 2 touchdowns and nearly 200 yards rushing against Highlands prove that Cooper is going to be the real deal in 6A this year. Cooper travels to Newport this week to play New Cath on Friday. 2) Highlands (5A / 0-1) – There were a lot of eyebrows raised around Greater Cincinnati and around much of the state of Kentucky this past Friday night after Highlands had their first loss to a Northern Kentucky football program in five years. What may be more concerning for the Bluebirds is the fact that almost half of their 13 points from the loss to Cooper was scored by special teams. Look for Highlands to come out angry and with a purpose this Friday against Campbell County in Ft. Thomas. 1) Simon Kenton (6A / 1-0) – By all appearances, Simon Kenton is coming out strong this season, and has improved on last year’s team. After a very nice showing in their scrimmage at Louisville St. Xavier (6A), and a romping win this past Friday over Christian Academy-Louisville (2A), the ‘Neers will be looking strong and confident as they welcome the Bryan Station Defenders (6A) to Independence this week. Player Of The Week: Torey Cordell-Armstrong (Cooper High School) Running back Cordell-Armstrong showed that he is a major cog in the Cooper machine this past week, running for 189 yards, and scoring 3 touchdowns in the Jaguars’ 37-13 victory over 5A powerhouse Highlands. Game Of The Week: Covington Holy Cross (2A) vs. Walton-Verona (2A) After a tough 1-10 season last year, the Holy Cross Indians celebrated a solid first week win against cross-town rival, Holmes. The Indians will be looking to build on their first taste at success this season when they take the field on Friday. Walton-Verona took one on the chin in their season opener against the Lloyd Memorial. The Bearcats trounced Holy Cross last season when they met in the first round of the 2A playoffs, and will be looking to correct some mistakes on Friday after their Week 0 loss to the Juggernauts. Trending Up: 6A Cooper proved that they are here to stay as a Northern Kentucky Power with their convincing victory over 5A defending champs, the Highlands Bluebirds. 2A Covington Holy Cross is working to climb back to their championship form from earlier this decade. The Indians beat 4A Holmes this past week. Trending Down: 2A Newport Central Catholic wasn’t looking too great this last week when they lost 7-8 to Scott High School in a sloppy game this past Friday. Hopefully returning starter Jacob Smith will bring some fire back to the Breds’ offense. 5A Highlands surprised many folks around the state when they opened up their 2015 season by losing 13-37 to the 6A Cooper Jaguars. The loss marks the first time the Bluebirds have been beaten by a Northern Kentucky team since 2010. Highlands will undoubtedly be making some adjustments as they prepare for the remainder of a very tough schedule this season.

We encourage everyone to patronize our sponsors, and you can visit them at 2311 Buttermilk Crossing in Crescent Springs. Feel free to bring along this premium coupon when you visit! THE RANKINGS: 10) Lloyd Memorial (2A / 3-1) – The Juggernauts had this past week off but are currently still holding on to the #10 spot in NKY. Lloyd will host 3A Garrard County this week in Erlanger. The Golden Lions have a 4-1 record coming into the game on Friday. 9) Scott (4A / 4-1) – Scott beat 2A Holy Cross this past Friday, managing to put up 50+ points for the second time this season in their 56-39 victory over the Indians. The Eagles’ offense is looking better and better with quarterback Fitzgerald, and running backs London and Pleasant all putting up solid numbers this week, but their defense is showing some need to improve, having given up 67 points in their last two games combined. Scott travels to Maysville this week to take on the winless 4A Mason County Royals. 8) Newport Central Catholic (2A / 2-3) – Coming off a tough loss on the road to the defending 3A champion Belfry Pirates, New Cath rebounded on the road this past week by beating 4A Harrison County 47-7. The Thoroughbreds put up an impressive 470 yards of offense, with stud running back Jacob Smith carrying the ball 23 times for an average of over 10 yards per carry, and holding Harrison County to only 156 yards of offense. New Cath will host the 6A Conner Cougars this week. 7) Conner (6A / 3-1) – The Cougars struggled a bit on offense this week, only managing 228 total offensive yards in their matchup against a struggling 5A Dixie Heights team. Even after three turnovers by the Colonels, the win came down to Dixie’s failure to convert after their two touchdowns. A win is still a win, and with the margin between the #7 and #5 spots looking pretty slim at this point, Conner’s game on Friday against 2A Newport Catholic should make for a pretty interesting matchup in Newport. 6) Beechwood (1A / 3-1) – Beechwood took one on the chin this past Friday, losing at home to 5A Covington Catholic in a game that had many eyes on it around the state. Beechwood comes out of the 41-21 loss showing several positives on their end, and will still be the team to beat in 1A, but Cov Cath’s size on the line, and depth was too much for the Tigers on Friday. Still, they showed an impressive ability to move the ball as a 1A team matching up against a 5A team. Beechwood will be looking to rebound on Friday when they welcome the 2A Holy Cross Indians to Edgar McNabb Stadium this week. 5) Highlands (5A / 1-4) – Friday night made for the second time in three weeks that Highlands went into halftime with a 0 on the scoreboard. 6A St. Xavier is no slouch of a team, but after losing 37-0 to the Tigers and failing to score until the 4th quarter in Friday’s game, the Bluebirds currently have more regular season losses than they’ve seen in almost a decade, and their regular season is only now at its halfway point. This week’s matchup against the 6A Simon Kenton Pioneers doesn’t look to be much easier on Highlands, with the ‘Neers rolling on top of their NKY competition with a 5-0 record. The Birds keep their place in the power rankings this week, but the Covington Catholic Colonels have moved ahead of Highlands for the time being after coming to life this week against the 1A Beechwood Tigers, previously ranked above both Highlands and Cov Cath in the polls. 4) Covington Catholic (5A / 1-4) – It’s hard to see a team with a 1-4 record in the fourth spot of the NKY power rankings, but losing their first three games to three talented teams, and showing a few first hints of resolve in a one-point loss last week to the 3A Lexington Catholic Knights, Cov Cath managed to put up the first win of the season on the road this past Friday in a 41-21 victory against 1A Beechwood. The Colonels are still working to figure everything out on the defensive side of things, and are working to fit the pieces together after a couple of key injuries on both sides of the ball, but there has to be a sigh of relief in Park Hills after the Colonels showed their ability to move the ball and to control the line of scrimmage. Cov Cath hosts Columbus power St. Francis DeSales this Saturday, before their bye week and beginning district play against 5A Grant County on October 10th. 3) Cooper (6A / 3-2) – There are a lot of good things going on out off Longbranch Road in Union, but for now, 6A Ryle has moved ahead of the Jaguars in the NKY rankings and have taken over as the top team in Boone County. Cooper managed to hold the 6A Simon Kenton Pioneers’ high powered offense to the least points they’ve scored yet this season, but the Jags struggled to put points up without their star running back in the backfield. Cooper hosts the 3A Lexington Catholic Knights this Friday, and then will be taking on crosstown rival Ryle to prove who’s king in Union, KY on October 9th. 2) Ryle (6A / 5-0) – The Raiders have knocked 6A Cooper out of the second spot in the NKY rankings. After a 52-7 routing of the 6A Campbell County Camels, it would certainly appear that the Raiders have ironed out the kinks we saw in the first couple of weeks this season. Both Ryle and Cooper managed 24 point victories over 5A Highlands, but Ryle edges ahead of the Cooper in the rankings after beating Campbell County this week by 17 more points than the Jags did last Friday. The Raiders will have the week off before taking on the winless 6A George Rogers Clark Cardinals on the road on October 2nd. 1) Simon Kenton (6A / 5-0) – The Pioneers are one of two teams to have made the top 10 in the NKY power rankings this season that still hangs on to a 5-0 record. The other team, 6A Ryle, falls in behind Simon Kenton as #2 in Northern Kentucky. Although 6A Cooper held them to the fewest points they’ve scored all season, Simon Kenton still hangs on to the #1 spot without question. Next week comes the game that the Pioneers have been asking for for quite some time now, when the 5A Highlands Bluebirds come to Independence on Friday. Player Of The Week: Jacob Smith (Newport Catholic) Smith showed really off his ability to run the ball this week against Harrison County, carrying 23 times for 234 yards in Friday night’s when the Thoroughbreds took on the Thorobreds. Smith accounted for 4 of New Cath’s 7 touchdowns in their win over Harrison County. Game Of The Week: Highlands (5A) vs. Simon Kenton (6A) Simon Kenton is certainly the favorite coming into the long-awaited matchup between the ‘Neers and the Birds, but much of Kentucky will still be watching to see what the outcome of the game will be on Friday. Simon Kenton is one of two undefeated teams around Northern Kentucky, and Highlands is fighting to get their second win on the books. The Pioneers host this Friday in Independence. Trending Up: 5A Covington Catholic – Cov Cath got Coach Eddie Eviston his first win with the Colonels this past week, in a solid 41-21 victory on the road over the 1A Beechwood Tigers. They take on another big challenge this week against Ohio power Columbus DeSales when the 3-1 Stallions visit Wooten Field in Park Hills on Saturday. 2A Walton-Verona – Coach Barth and the Bearcats got their first W of the season by handing 2A Lexington Christian Academy their first L of the season. Walton-Verona lead early on in the game, but after falling behind, managed a 15 point comeback in the 4th quarter to win 28-27 over the Eagles. The Bearcats will host the 2A Carroll County Panthers this Friday. Trending Down: 6A Campbell County – The Camels have fallen to a 0-5 record this season after being routed 52-0 by the 6A Ryle Raiders this past Friday. Campbell County will play Western Brown (OH) this week as they try to get their first win of the season, hosting the 3-1 Broncos in Claryville. 5A Highlands – Things are still looking unusually rough in Ft. Thomas, as the Bluebirds drop to 1-4. It’s one of the rockiest starts to the season in memory for most Highlands fans, and the Birds will have another tough week taking on the undefeated 6A Simon Kenton Pioneers this week on the road in Independence.

We encourage everyone to patronize our sponsors, and you can visit them at 2311 Buttermilk Crossing in Crescent Springs. Feel free to bring along this premium coupon when you visit! THE RANKINGS: 10) Lloyd Memorial (2A / 4-2) – The Juggernauts hosted 6A Conner this Friday, and lost in a nasty, cold, and rainy game after a 4th quarter touchdown pass by the Cougars. Both teams struggled for yardage all night, and despite two impressive goal line stands by the Lloyd, the Cougars were eventually able to find the endzone with 3:00 remaining in the game. Lloyd travels to Newport on Friday to take on the 2A Wildcats in district competition. 9) Newport Central Catholic (2A / 2-4) – No action this week. The Thoroughbreds take on the 2A Holy Cross Indians this Friday in their first district game of the season. 8) Conner (6A / 5-1) – Conner added another win to their schedule, beating the 2A Lloyd Juggernauts 6-0 in Erlanger on Friday. However, the Cougar offense struggled – particularly in the red – as evidenced by the Juggernauts’ defense successfully making two goal line stands. The weather was against both teams, and the game was scoreless until Conner scored on a tipped pass with 3 minutes left in regulation. The Cougars take on the winless 6A Campbell County Camels on Thursday. 7) Scott (4A / 6-1) – Scott handed out a second beat-down in a row, this time beating the 4A Harrison County Thorobreds in a 43-0 shutout in Taylor Mill. The Eagles had 415 yards total offense, and had a running clock less than half way through the second quarter. The Eagles improved to 6-1, and will be taking on the 4A Bourbon County Colonels at home next Friday after their bye week. Bourbon County is 3-3. 6) Beechwood (1A / 5-1) – Beechwood’s win on Friday came as no surprise, but Tigers’ 49 points in the first quarter were quite a feat, as Beechwood routed the 2A Newport Wildcats 69-24. The Tigers were playing with mostly backups for 3 quarters of the game as they rolled on to coach Noel Rash his 100th win as Beechwood’s skipper. Beechwood certainly appears to be the undisputed top of the small school programs around Northern Kentucky this year, and holds on to the #6 spot in the power rankings. The Tigers have Bellevue this Friday in a district matchup at Bellevue’s Gilligan Stadium. 5) Highlands (5A / 1-5) – No action this week. The Bluebirds take on the 5A Dixie Heights Colonels this week in Edgewood for their first district matchup of the season. 4) Covington Catholic (5A / 1-5) – No action this week. Cov Cath will have their first district matchup on Saturday when they host the 5A Grant County Braves at Wooten Stadium. 3) Cooper (6A / 5-2) – Cooper had their turn against a struggling 5A Dixie Heights team on Friday, and sent the Colonels home from Union with a 35-7 loss. Much like Ryle, however, the Jaguars had a surprisingly rough first half, only scoring once against Dixie in each the first and second quarters. Inclement weather aside, it was surprising to many to see the halftime score, with Cooper only leading 14-7. The Jags were able to add on 3 more touchdowns in the second half, but I have to say I was surprised to see the team who beat 5A Highlands 37-13 only come away from the Dixie game with a 35-7 victory. Cooper still holds on to the #3 spot in Northern Kentucky, and will have their big matchup against district rival Ryle this week to determine which team is king of Union, KY. 2) Ryle (6A / 6-0) – The Raiders took on the winless 6A George Rogers Clark Cardinals, and handed them their 6th loss of the season, beating them 49-10. Interestingly enough, GRC was the first team to score, with a 25 yard first quarter field goal. Ryle answered with a field goal of their own, but was still only winning 10-3 at the half. However, the Raiders obviously put their game back together at halftime, coming out with a monumental 32 point third quarter. A surprising performance all in all by Ryle, but the Raiders hold on to the #2 spot in Northern Kentucky. Ryle hosts 6A Cooper this week, and the game will definitively tell us which team deserves higher billing in the NKY Power Rankings. 1) Simon Kenton (6A / 6-0) – No action this week. Still sitting tight in the #1 spot. The Pioneers take on the 6A Boone County Rebels at Boone County’s Owen Hauck Stadium on Friday in their first district game of the year. Game Of The Week: Cooper (6A) vs. Ryle (6A) The crosstown rivals have been running a very close competition for the second and third spots in Northern Kentucky for most of the regular season, and we’ll finally get to see which team is the best on Friday when the Jags host the Raiders. Trending Up: 4A Scott – The Eagles move up to the #7 spot in the NKY Power Rankings after blanking the 4A Harrison County Thorobreds 43-0 on Friday. The pull ahead of 6A Conner, who beat the Eagles three weeks ago. Scott has a bye this week before hosting 4A Bourbon County next Friday. 2A Walton-Verona – The Bearcats pulled of their 3rd straight win, beating the 2A Owen County Rebels 27-6 on Friday. That’s a shot in the arm for Walton-Verona, who started out the season 0-4. They play the 2A Gallatin County Wildcats on the road this week. Trending Down: 6A Conner – Even with a win this week, the Cougars still drop one spot in the NKY Power Rankings after only managing a single touchdown against the 2A Juggernauts this past Friday in a very sloppy game. The Cougars take on 6A Campbell County this week as they prepare for district competition beginning next week. 2A Newport – Second week in a row on the list for the Wildcats after bleeding out 49 first quarter points at the hands of 1A Beechwood this past Friday in a 69-24 dismantling by the Tigers. Newport takes on 2A Lloyd Memorial this week.

We encourage everyone to patronize our sponsors, and you can visit them at 2311 Buttermilk Crossing in Crescent Springs. Feel free to bring along this premium coupon when you visit! THE RANKINGS: 10) Newport Central Catholic (2A / 3-4) – New Cath showed more signs of struggle this week in their win over 2A Holy Cross. The game was neck and neck through three quarters of play, and the Breds struggled to find much rhythm. Jacob Smith did pull off a solid 193 yards rushing this week, but the fact remains, New Cath’s reliance on Smith will only get them so far, as evidenced by their 3-2 record with Smith in the backfield, and 3-4 record overall. New Cath will be fighting it out with 2A Lloyd Memorial this week in their second district matchup of the season. 9) Lloyd Memorial (2A / 5-2) – This week the Juggernauts added their name to the list of teams that have thumped 2A Newport this season, winning 42-7 on Friday. Lloyd has proven several times over that they mean business on the gridiron, and their near 500 yards on offense this week goes to show they are doing everything they can to make a run at the 2A playoffs this season. With 2A Newport Catholic appearing as their biggest opponent in district competition, the Juggs are going horse-hunting this Friday when they take on New Cath on the road. 7T) Conner (6A / 6-1) – Conner hosted 6A Campbell County this past Friday, and sent the Camels home with a loss. The Camels have had an obvious struggle this season, and the Cougars held them right at their season average 14 points, while putting up 36 points of their own for the win. With such a close game played on Sept. 11th between Conner and 4A Scott it’s still incredibly hard to put a point on which team should be ranked higher, so with a solid performance by Conner this week and no game played by Scott, I’ve got to put the two teams as a tie. Conner takes on 6A Ryle on the road this week. 7T) Scott (4A / 6-1) – No action this week. The Eagles are sitting at 6-1, and will be taking on the 4A Bourbon County Colonels at home on Friday. Bourbon County is 3-3. 6) Beechwood (1A / 6-1) – Beechwood rolled to their sixth win of the season, beating their 1A district competitor Bellevue Tigers 49-0 on the road. With the better part of 500 offensive yards, Beechwood is continuing to flex their muscles, and are building steam as they approach the playoffs. The Tigers will welcome the 1A Ludlow Panthers to Ft. Mitchell on Friday. 5) Highlands (5A / 2-5) – The Bluebirds left David Cecil Memorial Stadium with a solid 42-7 victory over 5A Dixie Heights on Friday. Nonetheless, there were quite a few eyebrows raised on Friday night when Highlands walked into the locker room at halftime only leading 7-0 after struggling to move the ball in the first two quarters. They clearly got their game together in the second half, but the Birds will have some work to do to prepare for the rival 5A Covington Catholic Colonels who will be trying to get their first win against Highlands since 2006. 4) Covington Catholic (5A / 2-5) – Cov Cath ticked off their second win of the season this week against the 5A Grant County Braves in a Saturday game in Park Hills. Cov Cath rushed for over 240 yards, and passed for another 180 yards in a 47-9 victory over the Braves. One new development for the Colonels this week was the addition of Cam Pitzer to Cov Cath’s offense. Pitzer brought some new life to the Colonels’ struggling receiving game, with 5 catches and 2 touchdown receptions. Cov Cath takes on their arch-rivals this Saturday when they play the 5A Highlands Bluebirds in Park Hills. 3) Ryle (6A / 6-1) – Ryle was handed their first loss of the season this past Friday, and there’s no denying that there must be some disappointed Raider fans this week seeing as not only was it a district loss, but it also was suffered at the hands of their hometown rival, 6A Cooper. The game was highly debated in the days leading up to Friday night, but the Raiders struggled to get their usual passing game moving against the Cooper defense, and they struggled with the Jaguar passing game in turn. The Raiders look to bounce back this week against 6A Conner. 2) Cooper (6A / 6-2) – Cooper has proved live and in person that they are the best team in Union, KY this year. Even after star running back Torrey Cordell-Armstrong left injured only moments into the game, the Jags were able to press forward with 220 yards in the air and another 74 on the ground. Cooper also held 6A Ryle’s high powered passing game to only 132 yards, and 58 yards on the ground. Junior receiver Dante Hendrix caught for 153 yards and 1 touchdown in the 27-21 win over the Raiders. Cooper plays at 6A Boone County on Friday. 1) Simon Kenton (6A / 7-0) – Simon Kenton played a far inferior 6A Boone County team this week in their first district matchup, and many folks seemed a bit surprised at the 37-13 final score. However, with the score at 30-0 less than 13 minutes into the game, the Pioneers started switching in their backups. The Pioneers had 9 different offensive players with their hands on the ball on Friday totaling for over 300 yards on offense, and 18 different defensive players with tackles, and allowing less than 150 yards on defense. Simon Kenton will have their second and final district game this week against 6A Campbell County. Game Of The Week: Covington Catholic (5A) vs. Highlands (5A) This rivalry may not impress many, with Highlands having won every game between these two since 2006, but to the folks in Park Hills and Ft. Thomas, this is often THE matchup of the regular season, regardless of records coming into the game. There’s no denying that both of these teams have struggled thus far this season, but there are many people wondering if this is finally going to be the game that Cov Cath is going to get over the recent hump. Kickoff is at 1:00pm on Saturday in Park Hills. Trending Up: 1A Beechwood – The Tigers are rolling, and are looking more and more like Bowling Green is in their future. 2A Lloyd Memorial – Lloyd is starting to flex their muscles, and they’re looking like they’re going to have their team warmed up and ready right on schedule for the playoffs. Trending Down: 4A Holmes – The Bulldogs are having a very, very difficult season this year, and lost their 5th game of the season this week to 4A Bourbon County. 6A Ryle – They played tough this week, but Ryle drops a spot in the rankings this week after losing to 6A district rival Cooper.

  19. 1) 5A Covington Catholic (15-0 in 2017) – The Colonels have a heck of an act to follow after an undefeated state championship season in 2017. Job one is replacing graduates linebacker/running back Grant Dyer, linebacker/tight end Kam Butler, quarterback AJ Mayer, defensive back/receiver Malachi Pike, and safety Adam Schneider. Most indications are that sophomore Caleb Jacob will be getting the nod as QB after a very strong freshman season for the Colonels. Casey McGinness will be returning for a 3rd year at starting RB, and receivers Jack Coldiron, Zach Coburn, and Luke Summe will be returning as well, along with the entire Colonel offensive line. Notre Dame commit Michael Mayer, junior, will lead the defense, but there are a lot of positions to be filled elsewhere on the D. Sophomore kicker Trey Gronotte also returns, with the potential to be one of the best kickers in program history. 2) 6A Ryle (8-3 in 2017) – After a disappointing first round exit from the playoffs last season, Ryle will be working hard to prove in 2018 that their playoff loss to Butler last season was a flub that they won’t be dwelling on or repeating. Quarterback Jake Smith with be leading the offense along with seasoned running back Kyle England and offensive lineman Jacob Gideon. Linebacker Jackson Saladin will be leading the defensive side for the Raiders, with a strong cast of juniors and seniors coming in to fill roles vacated by last year’s graduates. Keep an eye out this season for defensive back Elijah Cusick, tackle Keegan Points, and D-ends Jack Cleveland & Cooper White. It will also be fun to see what D1 recruit Mason Molique will do this year for the Ryle kicking game. 3) 6A Simon Kenton (11-2 in 2017) – The Pioneers have two tasks at hand in 2018: regaining the title of top 6A team in NKY by beating Ryle, and getting past the Louisville powerhouse schools to advance further towards the 6A championship. Their first task for Coach Marksberry is to find a replacement for quarterback Matt Shearer, who will be playing D2 college football at Concord University in 2018, as well as replacing 8 other starters lost to graduation. Caleb Farfsing is likely to start at QB after backing up Shearer last season. They will be returning two solid RB’s this season in junior Austin Hammack and senior Jon Sergent. The offensive line will be anchored by Treyvon Nash, who will also be the big returning man on the defensive line. Defensively, senior linebackers Bryson Pernell & Clay Cogswell will be key returning seniors as well, along with D-backs Brady Nipper & David LeCount. Simon Kenton will be strong, but their success will hinge primarily on the offense coming together for them this season. 4) 1A Beechwood (12-2 in 2017) – Beechwood is one of two teams looking to defend a state championship from 2017. And like Covington Catholic, the Tigers will have to replace a star quarterback in Brayden Burch, along with athlete James Davis, and receiver/defensive backs Jake Massie & Daniel Mescher. The Tigers are likely to rely on sophomore Highlands transfer Cameron Hergott, nephew of Beechwood quarterbacking legend and current assistant coach Greg Hergott. They are also very fortunate to be returning workhorse players like senior WR/DB Logan Castleman, senior OL/DL Adam Derry, and his younger brother, junior RB/DB Josh Derry. Twin brothers Dayton & Duncan Baugh will also be back to anchor the offensive and defensive lines for their senior season. Coach Noel Rash and the Beechwood Tigers will definitely find themselves contending for the top spot in Kentucky’s 1A class for the 2018 season. 5) 5A Highlands (6-6 in 2017) – After a couple of rough seasons in ’16 and ’17, the Birds are working on fighting their way back into form for 2018. They will be starting that off on offense with returning starters Cooper Schwalbach at running back, Nate Roberts at tight end, and Austin King at wide receiver. Senior Grady Cramer will be replacing Carl Schoellman at quarterback after backing him up last season. Their offensive and defensive lines are not going to be the largest in NKY, but historically that has not been anything to stop the Birds from having their way with the ball. Still, it’s their play at the line of scrimmage that is likely to be the key to Highlands’ success in 2018. Coach Weinrich and his staff also have their work cut out replacing starters this season on D, and will be relying heavily on senior linebackers Alex Starkey and cornerback Bailey Armstrong for leadership. Junior Brycen Huddleston is also someone to watch at linebacker, as well as Max Dierig at defensive end. 6) 2A Newport Central Catholic (6-6 in 2017) – New Cath will be back in 2018 with stud running back Kyle Kelly back for his senior season, and returns junior quarterback Paul Kremer to lead the offense. Their O-line returns a good amount of beef, as well as a couple of promising up-and-comers. On defense, again, Kyle Kelly is the obvious big name, joined by junior linebacker Daniel Craig, junior defensive lineman Tanner Daunt, senior defensive backs Hunter Cain, Hezekiah Miller, and junior defensive backs Caleb Jefferson & Aubrey Posey. With a new head coach and staff, it’s going to be exciting to see what Coach Steve Lickert and the Breds can do to improve on their 6-6 season last year, and try to re-capture the top spot in their district. New Cath definitely has the potential to be a very strong 2A team in 2018. 7) 6A Campbell County (7-5 in 2017) – The Camels have a new head coach for 2018 in former Ryle assistant coach Mike Woolf. Coach Woolf is familiar with the Campbell County program, after having been an assistant there previous to moving to his position at Ryle. The first big job on offense is finding replacements for QB Austin Hoeh and all-star running back Alex Dowds. The quarterback position will be decided between senior Andrew Helton and junior Nick Cartwright, with Helton likely to get the starting nod. They have a large group of big seniors returning to the line, most of whom play both offensively and defensively. And they also have seniors RB Grant Jolly, WR Brady Singleton and WR Reid Jolly to help with the offensive game. The defense will be led by DE Tanner Lawrence and LB Peyton Anderson, with Brady Singleton and Reid Jolly joining in the defensive backfield as well. It will be interesting to see whether or not Coach Woolf will continue to use so many of the players on this 6A program on both sides of the ball this season. 8) 6A Cooper (2-9 in 2017) – The Jags are hoping to put last year behind them this season, after having a disappointing 2-9 season in the wake of graduating nearly all of their starting talent from the season before. Cooper is likely to have a sophomore quarterback this season in Jeremiah Lee, after Lee became the primary QB out of 3 contenders last season in his freshman year. Mikey Armour, who also spent some time as QB, is likely to spend all of his offensive time this season at WR, while also playing in the defensive backfield. Junior Jayden Maynard is also going to be a likely target at WR. Senior Michael Spencer, who spent much of last season waiting for transfer approval, looks to be a real talent for the Jags at tight end and linebacker, and Michael Attabary will be the anchor on both the offensive and defensive lines in his senior season. Cooper was young last season, and will be looking to make much better on things this season after spending a year rebuilding. 9) 6A Conner (4-7 in 2017) – The Cougars will be back in 2018 with one primary mission: beat more 6A teams. The team only managed a single win last season over a team from their same classification with their Week 1 win over Boone County. Their remaining wins came against two 2A teams and a 4A team. They will have senior RB Christian Webster back, helping to spark the offense, with junior Jared Hicks coming in at QB. They will also be relying heavily on senior receivers Tate Niederman & Ayden Camp. Their offensive line will be anchored by senior David Seal, alongside juniors Michael Neal & Zane Cahill who both play OL/DL and Noah Benza who plays TE/DE. Conner’s linebacking corps will be led by senior Clayton Boyd, who led the team in tackles last season. D-back Andrew Davis will be another big defensive player, joined by two-way players Ayden Camp & Tate Niederman to round out the defensive backfield. 10) 4A Scott (8-4 in 2017) – In his 6 years as Scott’s head coach, Dan Wooley has led the Eagles to 38 wins. You would have to tally wins back over the course of more than fifteen seasons to find 38 total wins prior to Wooley taking over the program. This season, the mission is the same: keep improving. To do that, the Eagles will have senior quarterback Chad Ohmer to lead the offense this season, with junior RB Quincy Perrin in the backfield with him along with senior RB David Patrick. Senior receiver Sabeon Turner and junior O-linemen Eric Linton and Jacob Randall will also be part of their offensive backbone. Linton and Randall will also be on the D-line, with Perrin also playing both ways in the defensive backfield, as does Patrick at LB. Seniors Jerad Kelsey & Justin Grindstaff will also be leading the linebacking corps, and corner Kyren Simpson will round out the senior leadership on D. HONORABLE MENTION 2A Lloyd Memorial (8-4 in 2017) – Lloyd beat Newport Central Catholic last season for the first time in over 20 years to win their district. They graduated quite a few starters, including QB Jordan Fann who will be playing college ball at Thomas More this year. They have a solid group of offensive and defensive linemen returning, but the team’s success will depend largely on replacing starters in their skill positions. 5A Dixie Heights (3-8 in 2017) – Last season was a re-building year for Dixie. They were a young team with a lot of un-tested players. They have graduated a few starters again, but will have a good group of juniors coming in who saw significant playing time last season. Coach Brossart has turned over offensive play-calling to Kevin Siple, a very experienced assistant who brings a lot of knowledge from over a decade of previous head coaching experience. GAME OF THE WEEK: WEEK 0 1A Ludlow vs. 2A Carroll County It's Panthers versus Panthers. Carroll County heads up the river to take on Ludlow on the banks of the Ohio at James Rigney Memorial Stadium. Ludlow handle Carroll County comfortably last year, winning 56-39, but after losing team all-star Justin Blackburn, this game could make for a much more interesting match-up this year.
  20. In 2015, BluegrassPreps is excited to roll out weekly football Power Rankings for each of the regions around the state. With each week's Power Rankings, we will be looking to rank the top ten teams in each region - regardless of class - against the other teams in their region. Throughout the season, we will be accounting for the results of all the games throughout the region, including the strength of each opponent played, points scored, points allowed, along with several other statistics on each side of the ball. We will also be featuring a highlighted "Game Of The Week", and moving forward, will be re-capping the previous games of the week, as well as highlighting regional "Big Risers" and "Big Droppers" as various teams improve their performance and other teams fall back. The BGP Power Rankings will also feature a "Player Of The Week". Pre-Season Top Ten: 10) Scott (4A) – The Eagles will be returning numerous starters, including a standout running back in Roberto London. Biggest games this season include New Cath (defending 2A runners-up), Dixie Heights, and Holmes. Coach Dan Wooley is developing a solid program in Taylor Mill, finishing with a 6-4-1 record last year. The Eagles are bringing some long awaited noise to the football competition amongst the schools in Northern Kentucky. 9) Beechwood (1A) – Returning numerous starters including quarterback Fieger, running back Stringer, wideout Slusher, and standout o-lineman Overstreet, the Beechwood Tigers and Coach Rash will be eyeing an awaited return to the 1A title game with 1A rival Mayfield having moved up to the 2A division. Their biggest regular season games include New Cath (defending 2A runners-up), Cov Cath, and road games against Somerset and Ironton (OH). 8) Newport Central Catholic (2A) – The development of junior QB Patrick Henschen will be a major determining factor for the Breds. Coach Wagner brought in Henschen last season as a sophomore, and he managed to lead New Cath the 2A title game, finishing with the runner up trophy. They have strong returning players on both sides of the ball, including standout running back/cornerback Jacob Smith. Major games this season include Cooper, Belfry (defending 3A champions), Scott, Campbell County, and Beechwood, while defending 2A state champion DeSales and 2A newcomer/defending 1A state champion Mayfield will lurk in the playoffs. 7) Campbell County (6A) – Coach Lickert and the Camels will be looking to push further into the playoffs this season after a first round loss last season to Lafayette. The Camels relied heavily last season on QB Carson Plessinger, who returns as a senior as well as receivers Froelicher and Crowder, and running back Garland. A lot of questions remain to be answered on the defensive side of the ball. Campbell County has a very nice regular season schedule this season, with contests against Highlands (5A newcomers, and defending 4A champs), New Cath (defending 2A runners-up), Cooper, Ryle, and Simon Kenton. 6) Covington Catholic (5A) – New head Coach Eddie Eviston and his new coaching staff are up against what may be the most difficult schedule in NKY. The Colonel linebacking core will be returning this year, along with a solid offensive line anchored by senior Chris Reisiger. With an opening at the QB position & an entirely new offensive scheme, offensive performance will be a big question for the Colonels. Their 2015 schedule includes Ryle, perennial Ohio power Cincinnati St. Xavier, Sycamore (OH), Lex Cath, Beechwood, perennial Ohio power Columbus DeSales, Dixie Heights (defending 6A runners-up), and Scott County. The biggest question will be whether Cov Cath can overtake rival Ft. Thomas Highlands; fellow 5A newcomers, and defending 4A champs. 5) Cooper (6A) – After finishing 9-5 and making it to the 5A semifinals in 2014, Coach Borchers and the Jaguars have proven that Cooper football is no flash in the pan. Returning nearly all of their starters is undoubtedly the largest contributing factor to success for Cooper this upcoming season. The quarterback position is their biggest question after graduating QB Billy Prickett last year. Cooper’s move up to 6A under the new alignment puts them in a three team district with Ryle and Conner, and leaves them with a tough row to hoe in the playoffs. It’s a big regular season schedule this year for the Jaguars including games against Highlands (5A newcomers, and defending 4A champs), Bryan Station, Campbell County, Simon Kenton, Lex Cath, Dixie Heights, and Ryle. 4) Dixie Heights (5A) – The Colonels went 13-2 last season, losing in the 6A state finals to Trinity. This year Dixie moves to the 5A division, and Coach Brossart will have to replace the majority of his starters this season, including most key positions on both sides of the ball. Defense will be the strength of their returning starters, with D-linemen Lohre and Sammons coming back, along with linebacker Caple and defensive back Schulte. The Colonels will be looking to develop players for most of their offense, including the virtually their entire line and backfield. Dixie’s biggest games this upcoming season will be against Simon Kenton, Cooper, fellow 5A newcomers and defending 4A champs Highlands, Cov Cath, and Ryle. Dixie will be facing a challenge to make it out of the region in the playoffs, with Cov Cath and Highlands both competing for the same regional title. 3) Ryle (6A) – There are going to be a lot of folks keeping an eye on Ryle this year as they come out in their second season under Coach Engler. They began rebuilding last year after a very tumultuous 2013 season, and finished the 2014 season with a 5-7 record. The Raiders will be returning a very talented runningback in senior Collin England, who was ranked 13th in Kentucky 6A football last season for average yards per game, with 95. Quarterback Tanner Morgan will also be returning this year as a junior, after being brought in last year to start as a sophomore. Morgan’s arm and the potential for a strong passing game isn’t something that is very familiar out of the Raiders, but will likely be a new aspect of the Ryle offensive scheme. The Raiders also have numerous other skills players returning this season, but their success will rely heavily on how they are able to develop their offensive and defensive lines, which have been greatly impacted by graduating players. Their regular season schedule this season is a solid one, with major games against Cov Cath, Lex Cath, Highlands (5A newcomers, and defending 4A champs), Cooper, Simon Kenton, and defending 6A runners up, Dixie Heights. 2) Simon Kenton (6A) – This will be Coach Marksberry’s 16th season as the Pioneers’ head coach, and after averaging over 9 wins per season for the last seven seasons (including one visit to the 6A state finals), the folks in Independence will be looking to see if this year could bring another visit to the 6A finals. The Pioneers will be looking for a big year out of junior QB Cameron Racke and senior running back Dillon Powell running plays behind a bulky and senior-heavy offensive line. The defense will have several returning seniors, including linebacker Dalton Finnell, Blake Powell at nose and Taylor Galbraith in the backfield. Simon Kenton will be looking for a lot of support from their juniors this season as well, with many of them having seen significant playing time last season. Their regular season schedule this season includes big games against defending Bryan Station, 6A runners-up Dixie Heights (who has moved down to 5A under the new alignment), Cooper, Ryle, and a long-awaited matchup against Highlands (5A newcomers, and defending 4A champs). 1) Highlands (5A) – There are few programs around Northern Kentucky or the state that get as much respect as the Highlands Bluebirds. Only two Kentucky teams – Collins & Ryle – have managed to hang a loss on the Bluebirds in the last 8 seasons. In his second season at the helm, Coach Weinrich looks to bring a 24th state championship back to Ft. Thomas in their first year as a 5A program. Their first job will be to replace their graduated D1 quarterback, Beau Hoge, and they will be looking to senior Austin Hergott for the job. The Bluebirds will bring back a much of their dominant offensive line as well as a skilled group of receivers and running backs, with seniors Miller, New, Cain, and Kendall to frequently have their hands on the ball. The defense will only be returning two starters in D-lineman Tyler Robinson and safety Austin Beal, but Highlands has consistently showed over the last two decades that their ability to reload with new talent is unprecedented. There is little doubting Highlands’ place as the #1 ranked team in Northern Kentucky. Their schedule this year includes big games against Scott County, Ryle, Louisville St. X, defending 6A runners-up and fellow 5A newcomers Dixie Heights, rival Cov Cath, and a much touted game against Simon Kenton. Game Of The Week: Ryle (6A) @ Covington Catholic (5A) Friday, August 21 5:30pm The Ryle Raiders will have a lot of eyes on them to see how Coach Engler is able to expand his offense around junior quarterback Tanner Morgan. Will the men in black be taking to the air more this season? How will their offensive line and defense look after replacing so many seniors? Cov Cath will have just as many eyes on them in the first game of the season, bringing on a new coaching staff, new offensive and defensive schemes, and having a new quarterback to break in. The Colonel defense should be solid, but after losing most of their offense to graduation, how will the Blueboys perform when it comes to moving the ball with their first big test coming at them right out of the gate?
