  1. Bluegrasspreps.com is giving you a chance to show off your football knowledge statewide! The Bluegrasspreps Regional Pick 'em gives you a chance to pick games in different parts of the state for prizes EACH WEEK. 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. 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 a quality prize. http://bluegrasspreps.com/new-member-introduction/contest-prizes-for-366882.html The overall state winner after the playoffs will get a grand prize custom made for you. The deadline for all entries is 5 p.m. (ET) 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 for Week 9 in the Western KY Regional contest are: Warren East at Allen County-Scottsville Green County at Metcalfe County Madisonville-North Hopkins at Logan County Daviess County at Henderson County Graves County at Christian County

  3. BluegrassPreps 2019 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 5 Edition The top story line this week is ¾ of the Top 20 recorded wins during Week 5! Great Job! And 3 of the 5 losses were to other Top 20 teams. The other 2 were Bowling Green falling to 6A stalwart St Xavier and Henderson County losing a close game at solid Anderson County. Overall, it was another good week for the Western Part of the State! Week 5 PurpleHaze Western Kentucky Game of the Week: Bowling Green 5A (3-2) 14 vs St Xavier 6A (4-1) 28. St Xavier came out very strong in this game and took two opening series drives in for touchdowns. Bowling Green’s defense then seemed to recover and it remained 14-0 at the half! BG made good additional adjustments at halftime and came out strong in the second half and had a chance to tie the game at 14, but the turnovers kept mounting for the Purples and it was ultimately too much to overcome! While disappointing, I think this game can help BG down the road as hopefully mistakes made in this game are identified and corrected. Onward! Week 6 Western Kentucky Games of the Week: This week we spread out focusing on some of the best District Openers around! 4A Logan County (5-0) at 4A Madisonville North-Hopkins (5-0). A dandy right here sports fans!!! Both these teams have played so well thus far! Madisonville is the favorite and playing at home is a clear advantage. But could Logan County Stars QB Tyler Ezell and RB Gary Hardy roll up 431 toward Madisonville and come away with a vital district win right out of the gate? You tell me… 3A Paducah Tilghman (4-1) at 3A Trigg County (4-1). This is a diamond in the rough the highlanders out east would overlook! But this is likely the top District Matchup in 3A District 1 right out of the gate! The stellar skill guys from Tilghman will test ultra-talented Wildcat QB Cam Jordan. Jordan will lead his crew into this matchup hungry to prove they are worthy to be considered in the 3A playoff race! Good Luck! Honorable Mention: South Warren at Glasgow (This game is worthy too); Bowling Green at Corbin; OCATH at Todd County Central; and Crittenden County at Union County. Try to make it out to one of these great games! Week 5 Top 10: 10) Hopkinsville (4A) – Preseason Rank: 6 - 2019 Record 3-2; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 41-13 vs County Rival 5A Christian County (0-5). After a tough road trip last week at Henderson County, Hoptown refocused and regained the “Bragging Rights Trophy” for the first time since 2014. QB Jay Bland had a record setting game! You will see him later. Star WR Reece Jesse was double covered the entire game, which allowed others including Lane Rushing and Tyrell Gray-Lewis to have big games from the WR spot! But the bigger take away from this game was the return of the Tiger rushing attack that gained over 110 yards on the night against a County defense that prides itself for stopping the run! Week 6: vs District Mate 4A Calloway County (0-5). The hits just keep coming for the poor ole’ Lakers! They have had 2 close games and 3 blow outs. Unfortunately for Laker fans this will be another blowout loss. I don’t get any pleasure typing that. I really believe all teams should get a win. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not an “everybody gets a trophy” guy, but want to see all youngsters hard work rewarded. But it won’t be here Lakers! Tigers Roll! 9) Glasgow (3A) – Preseason Rank: 12 - 2019 Record 5-0; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win 42-0 vs 3A Hart County (3-2). QB Tanner Abernathy and RB Nick Mitchell have big games for the Scotties as they roll to their 4th straight running clock game. But that streak will end next week. Week 6: vs 5A South Warren (5-0). Great game here for the Scotties to find out where you are really are at this point in the season! While you will not be the favorite in this game, you are capable! If you can find a way to neutralize the powerful South OLine, I think the Scotties can hang around. If not, I’m not sure. But regardless, Glasgow needs this game to prepare for the post-season! Good luck Scotties! 8) Logan County (4A) – Preseason Rank: 10 - 2019 Record 5-0; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 43-6 vs 5A Greenwood (4-1). The Cougars good a good win here and seem razor sharp heading into a crucial district matchup next week. QB Tyler Ezell had a great game – you will see him later! And the Cougar Defense was rock solid only giving up 88 yards the entire night! Week 6: WESTERN KENTUCKY GAME OF THE WEEK at 4A District Rival Madisonville North-Hopkins (5-0). Did anyone think just 3 seasons ago that Logan County would ever be a part of anything close to a Game of the Week! Congrats to them on turning their program around! This 2019 season is rolling right along and here were are to the District Schedule and we have a Great Game right out of the Gate! Last year the Cougars were set up in this game outgaining the Maroons by over 140 yards, but 2 big fumbles proved costly and the Maroons snuck out of Russellville with a big district win. This year the Cougars would like to return the favor. While I expect the Cougar offense to play well, I also expect the Cougar defense to be under duress with the rushing arsenal that Madisonville will unleash. And late in the game, will Logan County be able to come up with a big stop if it’s needed? You tell me… 7) Owensboro (5A) – Preseason Rank: 8 - 2019 Record 4-1; [District Record 1-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 55-17 at Daviess County (1-4). Just the haves and the have nots here! The Red Devils have the weapons to control a game like this and that’s basically what they did! I have no stats for this game, but it was a mismatch from the start. Week 6: at 5A Ohio County (2-3). District game #2 for the Red Devils! They will have to pay particular attention to hidden gem RB QDaryius Jennings, but I don’t think I have to tell the O Coaches that! Should be too much Red Devils in this one for sure! Running clock… What say you… 6) Paducah Tilghman (3A) – Preseason Rank: 7 - 2019 Record 4-1; [District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 44-21 vs 4A Calloway County (0-5). According to our good friend @TilghmanPride, the Blue Tornados rested several injured players last week, but still managed almost 400 yards on the ground. Star Jayden Freeman had a big game and you’ll see him later. Week 6: WESTERN KENTUCKY GAME OF THE WEEK at 3A Trigg County (4-1). Your district opener is always highlighted on anyone’s schedule, but when it may be at your most difficult district opponent it carries more weight I think. This will be a fascinating strategy game with Tilghman trying to impose their will on the ground while Trigg County can play the shootout game with anyone. So will the Trigg defense carry the majority of the minutes in this game if Tilghman runs the ball and Trigg scores quickly? I’m not sure, but it’s something to pay attention to. What say you… 5) Mayfield (2A) – Preseason Rank: 1 - 2019 Record 4-1; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 48-7 vs 5A Graves County (1-3). No chance of a 2 game slide here, as Mayfield comes out very strong in this one. According to our good friend @Squirrel, Mayfield earned the running clock in the 2nd quarter at 41-0. Mayfield played refocused and Graves did not. Week 6: at 3A Fort Campbell (0-5). I’m not sure if Mayfield has ever lost to Fort Campbell, but I know they won’t next week! The Falcons typically pick up a win against their military counterparts Ft Knox, but the Eagles upended the Falcons to extend their difficult stretch! Mayfield rolls… 4) McCracken County (6A) – Preseason Rank: 9 - 2019 Record 3-2; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 42-6 at 5A Marshall County (2-3). The Mustangs fresh off a memorable win against Mayfield rolled on! I don’t have stats here, but McCracken County now has their sites on starting off their district slate on a positive note! Week 6: at 6A Apollo (2-3). The Mustangs roll into the district schedule welcoming new district mate Owensboro Apollo! The Eagles have played some tough teams and are coming off a very nice win against an uneven Meade County squad. The Mustangs should be in a good spot to get out of town with a win and some fine Old Hickory Barbeque! I already feel cheated since BG didn’t get to play Owensboro this season! Oh well! Good luck to both teams! But I think the Mustangs will be too strong in this one, but it will be interesting to see how Apollo plays after a solid win! 3) Madisonville – North Hopkins (4A) – Preseason Rank: 5 - 2019 Record 5-0; [District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 41-7 vs 2A Ballard Memorial (0-4). The Maroons haven’t been 5 and 0 since 1993 according to 14 News out of Evansville. The next most important information for this game was reported by our good friend @Maroonman in that this game was a fill in when other/better teams scheduling didn’t material and Madisonville was left scrambling for a game. So the Poor Ole’ Bombers had to drive 2 hours each way to Madisonville. I really feel for Ballard. They have no wins this season. They have scored a total of 27 points all year. They have 25 kids on their roster and 10 or 40% of those are seniors. What about next year? You saw that Poor Ole’ Jenkins in the far eastern part of the state just packed up the program! I’d hate to see that happen to the Bombers, but it is a problem for the majority of small schools across the state and nation. Sorry to focus on this, but the game isn’t very interesting. We all knew what would happen. Moving on to a MUCH better game! Week 6: WESTERN KENTUCKY GAME OF THE WEEK vs 4A Logan County (5-0). There should be no excuses from Madisonville in this one. They come in hitting on all cylinders! They have arguably the top rushing offense in the State with Jeriah Hightower in the saddle. Add to that a passing offense that really hasn’t been needed this season, but was very evident they had hit another gear when SR QB Hayden Reynolds and company surprised many by leading the opening day at the highly successful Best of the West 7v7 Tournament this July! So Madisonville has the rest of 4A in the West on notice, as I look for them to play awfully strong here. If they can dictate offense with the run and sprinkle in some Hayden Reynolds passes, they will be a very tough out! 2) Bowling Green (5A) – Preseason Rank: 2 - 2019 Record 3-2; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: PurpleHaze Western Kentucky Game of the Week - Loss: 28-14 vs 6A St Xavier (4-1). In a word, disappointed. Not in the fact BG lost the game, but more so in the first half of the ball game. I think every Purples offensive series had third down and long every time. So ineffectiveness on first and second downs really cost BG. But not more so than 4 big turnovers. You simply can’t give a very good team that many and expect to win. See some highlights here: VIDEO: Week 5 high school football highlights | Sports | bgdailynews.com Week 6: at 4A Corbin (2-2). The Redhounds were on their BYE WEEK last week, so they should be well rested when the Purples come calling next week! I got to see Corbin in the Best of the West 7v7 Tournament back in July and they had some fine players, but they seemed young as they couldn’t click in that environment, but Friday Night Lights are much different. I look for this to be a competitive game. You tell me… 1) South Warren (5A) – Preseason Rank: 3 - 2019 Record 5-0; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 22-8 at 4A Louisville Central (1-4). The Spartan defense played very well only giving up 88 yards on the night. The Spartan offense played well enough, but the big news out of the Spartan camp is talented SO QB Cade Veltcamp was believed to have broken his wrist and likely out at least 6 weeks. I certainly hate that for the young man if this is confirmed, who was playing well for South! It will be interesting to see who will now step into the QB slot. But the new QB will be tested right out of the gate. Week 6: at 3A Glasgow (5-0). This will be a good game, but it’s a better game for Glasgow than South. I say that because all perspectives say South should win this game. I realize when you get on the field of play that a good team is a good team. The fact is South favors a medium schedule. No problem, but own that. It will not be until October 4th when the Purples come calling that we will really know where the Spartans are. That will continue to be a game most will look forward to. Next 10 – 11 to 20: 11) Henderson County (6A) – Preseason Rank: Not Ranked - 2019 Record 4-1; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Loss: 21-17 vs 4A Anderson County (3-2). I don’t have any stats on this one, but obviously was a good game. It’s tough to drive across the state and play a good team, but was a good pickup on the schedule for Hendo, as Anderson will have to travel to Henderson next year! Week 6: BYE WEEK. The BYE WEEK is undefeated and comes at a good time for the Colonels. Rest up as your near term games area very favorable. Those lead to the likely District Championship game when the Mustangs of McCracken County come calling on October 25th! Mark that one on your calendar sports fans! Good Luck Hendo! 12) Owensboro Catholic (2A) – Week 5 Results: Win 68-14 vs 4A Hopkins County Central (0-5). Team Air Raid continued to put up big numbers handing poor ole’ Hopkins County Central their 5 straight loss. It was a remarkable output for the Aces offense and you will see them later! OCATH is really playing well now as they head into district play! Next up: at scrappy Todd County Central. The District Opener! This will be a terrific test for the Aces. The 2 hour bus trip down 431 should be very entertaining. The Aces rarely get tested in their district. I got a little glimpse at both these teams in the 7v7 earlier in July and I honestly think the Rebels have a punchers chance in this game at least for a while. Yes, Todd County Central is the clear underdog, but beware Aces! 13) Greenwood (5A) –Week 5 Results: Loss 43-6 at 4A Logan County. The Gators have been arguably the best “feel-good” story this season, as they have come out of nowhere to shock most people! But that fairy tale ran out of magic dust in Russellville on Friday night as the Cougars controlled play and the game as well, but chin up Gators! Next week: vs 6A Barren County. I hope the Gators lay the law down next week as the Trojans rubbed me the wrong way last year, but let’s move on! Go Gators! 14) Caldwell County (2A) – Week 5 Results: Win 50-13 vs 3A Union County. This is a good win for the Tigers! Coach McGowan’s Tigers appear to have hit their stride as the Tiger offense is playing really well right now. Too bad they are in Mayfield’s district! Next up: at Poor Ole’ District Mate Ballard Memorial. Not much to see here. Ballard is winless with dwindling numbers and Caldwell is playing good ball right now! This one’s over early! Tigers roll! 15) Franklin Simpson (4A) – Week 5 Results: Win 42-0 vs Old Foe Russellville. Not much of a game here as Russellville is still trying to put the limited pieces together. For Franklin, it has to feel good to get a win. That’s the game you play with a tough schedule and they have played a challenging schedule. Good first step Wildcats! Next up: at 4A District Mate Allen County Scottsville. The Wildcats are favored against all their district mates. That’s why they play the challenging early schedule. Because there are other VERY tough 4A teams awaiting should Franklin seek to advance beyond Week 3 of the Playoffs! Wildcats roll! 16) Murray (2A) – Week 5 Results – Win 64-27 at Trigg County. The Tigers get a very nice road win last Friday going to Cadiz and rolling up over 400 yards on the night! QB Hunter Utley had a big game with 250 passing yards and 5 TDs. RB Charvelle McCallister also had a big game. You will see him later! Next up: Vs 3A Fort Campbell. This game should be over early, as I see the Tigers running away with this one! The new playoff system hurts a team like Murray more than most, as they will be over-tested to get through the Mayfield Forest, but could take down most other 2A squads that will make it through to Week 3 of the Playoffs. Fair? You tell me… 17) Graves County (5A) –Week 5 Results: Loss 48-7 at Mayfield! Talk about walking into a Buzzsaw! Poor ole’ Eagles draw the unenviable task of facing Mayfield after a rare home loss. But they are going to have to forget it as district season is upon us. Next week: vs New District Mate Breckinridge County (3-2). Just what the doctor ordered Eagles fans, as the Fighting Tigers won’t be able to drive 3.5 hours over and put up much of a fight IMO! Eagles roll! 18) Trigg County (3A) – Week 5 Results: Loss 64-27 vs 2A Murray. I don’t have any Trigg stats here, but I think a dose of toughness was given out on Friday Night! It will be up to the Wildcats to take that medicine and get better from it. If they hang their heads, the Blue Tornados won’t let up. A test of character in Cadiz this coming Friday! Next up: WESTERN KENTUCKY GAME OF THE WEEK vs Paducah Tilghman! Great Matchup sports fans! Wildcats QB Cam Jordan will have to play a special game to get this done for Trigg! But he is capable! It’s a big spotlight! Let’s see what the Wildcats have for a very solid Tilghman squad! Go Wildcats! 19) Todd County Central (2A) – Week 5 Results: Win 57-27 vs Poor Ole’ 1A Caverna. The Rebels ambushed the Colonels early and it was over fairly quickly! I don’t have stats for the Rebels, but there was a SUPER Effort by one of the Colonels and you’ll certainly see him next! But now comes a BIG Game Rebel Fans! Next: District Foe vs 2A Owensboro Catholic. Now is your chance Rebels! The Aces are and have been the Top Dog in this District for a long while and I really think you have a punchers chance to compete here! But it will take a GREAT effort! You will need the home fan support in this one! Oh and make sure you call the refs so they show up for sure in this one! Ha! Good luck Rebels! 20) Grayson County (5A) – Week 5 Results – Win 24-12 at Breckinridge County! 5 and 0 Cougars! That has to feel good! Congratulations! The Cougars haven’t been 5 and 0 since a very strong 9 and 3 2012 team opened that year 7 and 0! If the Cougars can beat Graves County they will tie that mark! We’ll see! Next up: At Muhlenberg County. I like Grayson County to pull this one out, but it certainly could be close! Good luck! Week 5 Players of the Week: *I don’t have all stats available, so please add as you see fit! 1) Drew Rhodes – QB/OLB – Caverna – 19 for 39 for 219 yards passing with 2 TDs v 1 INT! He also ran the ball 10 times for 116 yards and 2 TDs! And instead of selling popcorn he had 1 INT as well – OUTSTANDING! Add WR Zyier Yates with 7 catches for 111 and 2 TD vs Todd County Central! Great Job! 2) Jay Bland – QB – Hopkinsville – School Record 6 TD passes (218 yards) vs Christian County! 3) Drew Hartz – QB – Owensboro Catholic – 18 for 21 for 548 yards and 9 TDs vs Hopkins County Central! Add WRs Hagan Edge 6 catches for 167 yards and 3 TDs and Dre Thurston with 5 catches for 147 yards and 3 TDs! WOW! 4) Charvelle McCallister – RB – Murray – 17 rushes for 161 yards and 3 TDs vs Trigg County! 5) Tyler Ezell - QB – Logan County – 21 for 31 for 347 yards and 5 TDs vs Greenwood! GREAT WORK GENTLEMEN!!! Week 5 “Teams Trending Down” Greenwood (5A) – Down – The Gators have had a storybook beginning to the 2019 season! There’s no doubt about that! But from afar Cinderella lost her slipper in Logan County Friday Night! But still a lot to play for Gators! District play is looming in about a week! Rise up Gators!!! Trigg County (3A) – Down – The magic the Wildcats have been hammering people with this year got transferred to the Murray sideline last Friday! Can’t win them all Wildcat fans! But you still have a good chance to control your own destiny with strong District play. Let’s see what you got Wildcats! Teams “Trending Up” Hopkinsville (4A) – Up – Hopkinsville has been all over this part of the article the last few weeks. I’m sure Tiger fans like it down here as opposed to up above any day! And when you punch your rival in the gut for the first time since 2014 has to be that much sweeter! Nice win Tigers! OCATH (2A) – Up – Coach Morris’ club has played very well this season and has dominated pretty much every team not named Owensboro! Drew Hartz is playing as well as anyone right now! It will be interesting to see if any of their typically soft district teams can put up ANY resistance? Can they? You tell me… Caldwell County (2A) – Up - The Tigers continue to play well and dedicating their season to their former Coach David Barnes has produced a talented team heading up as we go into district play! While I don’t think they can take down the Mayfield Cardinals, I do think their likely 2 games with Murray to be very competitive and highly entertaining! Good luck Tigers!

  13. BluegrassPreps 2016 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 5 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, District Football is here! Whether you already have 1 district game under your belt or if you are on the brink of it, the most important part of the regular season has arrived. These are teams you know well and they know you well. You have a history that goes back many years (by most accounts). Some battles have gone your way and some have not, but the freshness in the air of a new season is upon us. Whether you have had a good season to this point or not really, doesn’t matter as long as you play well now! Popcorn N Coke Top 10 Version – Week 5: 1. Bowling Green 5A (6-0): Win 55-7 vs 6A Central Hardin 2. Mayfield 2A (6-0): Win 35-34 vs 3A Corbin at Lindsey Wilson University 3. Franklin Simpson 4A (6-0): Win 30-24 vs 4A South Warren 4. Christian County 5A (5-1): Win 40-13 at 5A Marshall County 5. South Warren 4A (4-2): Loss 30-24 at 4A Franklin Simpson 6. Greenwood 5A (5-1): Win 45-12 at 2A Glasgow 7. McCracken County 6A (4-2): Win 62-20 at 6A Daviess County 8. Owensboro Catholic (5-1): Win 42-28 at 2A Butler County 9. Hopkinsville 4A (4-1): BYE 10. Russellville 1A (6-0): Win 33-14 at 2A Murray Week 5 Western Kentucky Game of the Week Recap: 4A South Warren (4-2) 24 at 4A Franklin Simpson (6-0) 30. Well I’m sure the Frosty Freeze was hopping after this Great District Battle in Franklin last Friday night! A game full of many types of drama: dropped passes, injuries, perseverance, determination and just flat out good football! These are 2 of the best teams in 4A this year – no denying that! According to our good friend @macdon, Franklin Simpson gained a total of 414 yards (271 through the air which was HUGE!) and South Warren gained 287 yards (all but 21 net yards in the Air!). Franklin scored on a blocked punt for a safety. South hit a Big 30 yard FG. Several big penalties as these close games typically have. I’m sure none of us will be surprised if this is only the first of two meetings this season between these 2 fine squads. However, the Hopkinsville Tigers will have something to say about that! Week 6 Western Kentucky Game of the Week: 5A Owensboro (3-2) at 5A Christian County (5-1) – This is the biggest game of the season for 5A District 1. Owensboro won last year 49-24 at Rash Stadium, but both teams are different this year. Christian County has excellent athletes but several go both ways, as do several key guys for the Red Devils. Our good friend @devils58 says the Red Devils implemented a new offensive wrinkle 2 Fridays ago vs Apollo using the QB to run some. That could be a factor in this game. Another factor will be: can the Colonels offense hit more of a stride they lacked in the Hopkinsville game? We shall see. But make no mistake, the winner of this game is the leader in the district and the leader to avoid BG for another week in the playoffs. No more Tune Up games! It’s District Ball! It’s time to play your best right now! Honorable Mention: Adair County at Edmonson County and McLean County at OCATH Meat & Potato’s Version Week 5 Top 10: 10) Russellville (1A) – Preseason Rank (PR): Top 15; Last Week (LW): 10 - 2016 Record 6-0; [District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 33-14 over 2A Murray (1-5). The Panthers didn’t get a running clock but just about everything but. They outgained Murray 395 to 295 and had a 26-0 halftime lead. Jaylyn McMurray led the way with 7 carries for 165 yards and 1 TD and 1 24 yard TD pass to MJ Jones. Week 6 or Weak 6: In Pilot Country at 1A Fulton County (0-6) Is this really necessary; Don’t hurt the Pilots! 9) Hopkinsville (4A) – PR: 9; LW: 8 - 2016 Record 4-1; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: BYE, which means the Cupcake Flavor of the Week is Vanilla! Check below to find out next week’s flavor! I would imagine several Tiger Coaches may have traveled to Franklin last Friday to scout ahead (Might be a good idea!) Week 6: at Madisonville North Hopkins (2-4). The Maroons have played some pretty dog gone good teams, but haven’t beaten any of them. They are the Tigers toughest test in the district and it’s on the road. However, Hopkinsville is coming off a bye week after losing a winnable game to their biggest rival. Therefore, I’m sure Coach Clark hasn’t had any trouble getting his team's attention this week. But I still expect them to start sluggishly, but recover, and then bury the Maroons in the end sending a statement to the rest of the district – if they don’t already know what’s coming! Maroon Cupcakes…… Must be red velvet!!!! 8) Owensboro Catholic (2A) – PR: Top 15; LW: 9 - 2016 Record 5-1; [District Record 1-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 42-28 at Butler County 2A (3-3). Sorry, I don’t have any stats, but 1 thing I do know is Owensboro Catholic is on a roll and will be a tough out come playoff time. They go on the road to their toughest district opponent and win by 2 TDs. Week 6: vs 2A McLean County (4-1). The Cougars have already had a solid year beating 6A Ohio County and nearly beating upstart 6A Muhlenberg County (lost 34-32 on the road). So now they come calling to Owensboro for some Old South Barbeque and maybe something more. However, that would not be the norm. Since 2009, all games but 1 (2009 the Aces won in Calhoun 42-41 – Great game!) have been blow out Aces wins. Will this be any different? I don’t think so. 7) McCracken County (6A) – PR: 4; LW: 5 - 2016 Record 4-2; [District Record 1-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 62 to 20 vs. Daviess County 6A (3-3). Mustangs earn 600 total yards and give up only 136! WOW! Cash Jones with 270 passing yards and 5 TDs; Darren Woods with 7 catches for 85 yards and 2 TDs; and Tayshawn Allen 4 carries for 129 yards and 1 TD. That’s the way you start out in district play! Expect much of the same next week! Week 6: In Eagle County at Ohio County 6A (2-4). The road trip lingers on for weary Mustang followers. After this week’s trip, Mustang fans will have logged over 8 hours and 500 miles of travel to follow their team! Not sure anybody else can match that in this specific 2 week period! Problem is there’s another 4 hours and 240 miles (following week at Henderson County) behind that! WOW! Hope you got a good tune up for the family roadster this week! Football wise, you should be in great shape as these 3 teams are down right now. You should prosper by taking control of the district during this span of games. 6). Greenwood (5A) – PR: 10; LW: 6 - 2016 Record 5-1; District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 45-12 at 2A Glasgow (4-1). No stats for this one, but you can bet Jackson Adams had another big game! Glasgow is a good team, but as our good friend @GHSFAN09 told us: the Scotties are fighting off some injuries at this point in the year. Still very good road win for the Gators as they ramp up for District Play! Week 6: District Opener & Senior Night as the 5A Barren County Trojans (0-6) come to the Swamp! Don’t worry Trojans your district grudge match with Grayson County (1-5) will offer you an opportunity to get a sweet W! No more regular season home games for the Gators! When you say that, you know the season is chugging along. 5) South Warren (4A) – PR: 3; LW: 4 - 2016 Record 4-2; [District Record 0-1] Week 5 Results: Loss: 30-24 vs 4A Franklin Simpson (6-0). Another gritty game Spartan fans! This time the grit went against you though. I assume you are disappointed with several opportunities that you weren’t able to seize upon that could have changed the outcome of this game. But, you have to be proud of your team for continuing to play hard and give everything they have even while playing at less than 100%. You also are getting valuable minutes to younger Spartans you will need in the future to stand up now. All is not lost for sure, but this does have District and playoff ramifications in that if things play out AS EXPECTED (maybe they will; maybe they won’t); you will have to travel to Hopkinsville in Week 2 of the playoffs! Can you win that one? Sure, but it won’t be easy. Week 6: BYE. And it’s a GREAT time for that, as the Spartans have been a MASH unit since Week 2 at Greenwood! 4). Christian County (5A) – PR: 5; LW: 7 - 2016 Record 5-1; [District Record 1-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 40-13 at 5A Marshall County (3-2). The only stats I had were from Marshall County. The yardage battle was tight: CC 108 vs MC 143 rush yards; CC 165 vs 136 pass yards. Christian County is a good solid team, but I am impressed with this Marshall County team and with continued stability and coaching from Coach Merrick and staff, I see very good things in the future for the Marshalls. Christian County moves to a really significant game for them! Week 6: Western Kentucky Game of the Week! District Buster vs 5A Owensboro (3-2). The strongest 2 teams in the strongest 5A district (top to bottom) meet at the Stadium of Champions in a high stakes game to gain a clear early lead in the district. Can Owensboro stop Christian County’s passing offense? Can Christian County stop Owensboro’s punishing rushing offense? Who do you like in this one? Just as important: Meet at the Wood Shed for a great Pre-Game Meal! 3) Franklin Simpson (4A) – PR: 8; LW – 3 - 2016 Record 6-0; [District Record 1-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 30-24 over 4A South Warren (4-2). WHAT A GAME Wildcat Fans! You have to be beaming off the ceiling still! For me, the Wildcats have proven a lot this season. Not to say they weren't good last year; it’s just the microscope wasn’t as focused as it has been this year. Add that to the fact you have wins at Caldwell County, at Greenwood and now your first ever vs defending 4A State Champions South Warren and you are feeling GREAT and next Friday can’t come quick enough! Greatest Regular Season Win Ever? I wouldn’t go that far due to Franklin’s rich past, but it has to rank up there somewhere. Week 6: In Dragon Country at 4A Warren Central (0-6). Not shaping up for much of a game unfortunately, but awesome shiny new stadium! I would say use this game to rest and heal up your banged up troops as Allen County Scottsville is on the horizon and will give you a game. But that game will be in Franklin, so if I’m a Wildcat fan, I like my chances! 2) Mayfield (2A) – PR: 2; LW: 2 - 2016 Record 6-0; [District Record 0-0] - Week 5 Results: Win: 35-34 over 3A Stout Corbin (5-1). WHAT A GAME Cardinal Fans! What a way to use 7 hours and 480 miles (round trip totals)! Hat’s off to both schools for working through all the hoops necessary to make this game happen! Both teams will be better in the playoffs for it! Mayfield was On Fire in the first half! If not for a blocked punt kick 6 and pick 6 the halftime score would have been 28-0 Mayfield, but was actually 28-14 with Corbin having 0 first downs and 19 yards total compared to 361 for the Cardinals. But to their credit Corbin never quit and fought all the way back and decided to go for 2 and the lead, but missed and settled for 35-34 with almost 5 minutes to go in the 4th Quarter. Mayfield to their credit stayed the course and finished out the game to win it. I know several Mayfield fans are disappointed that Big Red didn’t keep the hammer down and finish off the Redhounds. But keep this in mind. You go to school all day; get on a bus and drive 4 hours; prep for the game and blow their doors off in the first half; I’d be feeling pretty good by then also. And Corbin is/was #2 in 3A and plays far fewer (if any) 2 way players. I’d say the Mayfield coaches have to understand this and will use this as motivation going forward – not that you need it as YOU won the game! Week 6: District Opener in Tiger Country vs 2A Murray (1-5) NOT your typical Murray squad. As you recall last year, Murray gave you a real game for at least a half. How you pulled that late 2nd Quarter TD in that one, I still don’t know! Will Super-talented RB Trajan Bright return for this one? If he does, that would tell me that he is completely healed, as no reason to chance it with such a valuable player. 1) Bowling Green (5A) – PR: 1; LW: 1 - 2016 Record 6-0; [District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: Win: 55-7 over 6A Central Hardin (3-3). First, I thought Central Hardin was well coached and came out and punched BG in the mouth for the first time since St X. Problem was that Central is very limited in the skills positions. Iller and Barbour are both very good, but they fill A LOT of gaps for the Bruins! Good luck in your district! Second, How about Clark Payne! The young man is simply getting it done! As our good friend @Purple Nationtold you in the game thread, Payne set a BGHS school record with 415 yards passing. As Coach Wallace tweeted, “After 6 games (only 17 quarters played) 104-175, 72% , 1,661 yards, 19 TD, & only 1 INT. Dear recruiters, please take a 2nd look!” Third, Jamale Carothers needs 2 TDs to pass Nacarius Fant for 2nd on the all-time BGHS scoring list. Finally, 3 Purple receivers had 6 catches on the night highlighted by a career night for SR Luke Brown who’s 6 catches totaled 231 yards for 4 TDs! He has had a FANTASTIC SR Year! Week 6: Thursday Night – District Opener – In Cougar Country at 5A Grayson County (1-5). First, thanks to the Grayson County administration for agreeing to play on Thursday night, as this lets those that want to get a jump on Fall Break jumping early! Also BIG congratulations to the Cougars for their first victory of the year (49-34 over Breckinridge County)! I know it’s already been a long one, but hope you savored it as I don’t see another on your remaining schedule! Vs BG – just not going to be competitive is about as nice as it gets. Week 5 Players of the Week: (I am going to try to pick different guys for this list if I can to try and provide more hardworking young men a chance to get highlighted than to keep going to the same ones over and over. Also, I do not get all the stats by the time this edition goes out, so please add to the list and thank you for it!) 1) Clark Payne – QB – Bowling Green – 24-27 for 415 yards and 4 TDs! Luke Brown – WR – Bowling Green – 6 catches for 231 yards and 4 TDs! 2) Jack Murrell – WR – Mayfield – 10 catches vs Corbin! 3) Grant Johnson – LB – Marshall County – 16 tackles vs Christian County! 4) Cash Jones – QB – McCracken County – 28-38 for 270 yards and 5 TDs! 5) Jordan Stallings – RB – Grayson County – 17 carries for 212 yards and 3 TDs; plus 2 catches for 76 yards and 1 TD! Great Job & Determination! Week 5 “Big Droppers” South Warren (4A) – Down – I had to put someone here. Even though you battled your tales off and fought valiantly, just wasn't enough. Plus our good friend @jcarter reported many dropped passed that would have made a difference. Just is what it is. Get healthy Spartans! Long way to go! Logan County (4A) – Down – Yes, I know they haven’t won a game in a long time, but at home, for Homecoming, vs a beatable team (Hopkins County Central) and get clipped in overtime 35-27 is just an awfully demoralizing loss. That’s why they are here. Hold the fort Cougars, as we’re behind you on the last game of the season at Todd County Central! . Week 5 “Big Risers” Franklin Simpson (4A) – Up – Finally, got that hunter green monkey off your back! I bet that feels good! Have faced all challengers and come out on top! Allen County Scottsville and Russellville will be challenging games, but by your efforts on Friday – YOU are now the Man and the District now must come through you! Owensboro Catholic (2A) – Up – Just beat your biggest district rival on the road. You have to feel good about that! I feel a Big Battle brewing for the 2A West playoffs between OCATH and Mayfield. Both teams have great players! Will they all be available is my question? Too early to tell! Focus on continuing to take care of business in the district is job 1. But inquiring football fans always have their eyes up to see what might/should be down the road! Aces are Rollin! 11 Thru 15 11. Adair County (3A) – PR: Top 15; LW: 13 – 2016 Record: 6-0. Indians with another good win over a solid 1A KCD squad 44-3. Next up at 2-4 Edmonson County! According to our good friend @ACfan4, this game could be considered a trap game as the Indians have a bye the following week with Etown on the horizon. Also Edmonson County just went to Etown and lost 52-29. So we will have to compare scores after next Friday! 12. Owensboro (5A) – PR: 7; LW: 12 - 2016 Record 3-2; [District Record 0-0] Week 5 Results: BYE. Red Devils should be fresh as daisies after the time off! Now they head to Christian County with the District on the line - Plain & Simple! Yes, it’s the first game of the District, but these are the 2 best teams in that district. Can Owensboro’s OLine dictate the line of scrimmage? We shall see! 13. Glasgow (2A) – PR: Top 15; LW: 11 – 2016 Record: 4-1: Loss 45-12 against a very talented 5A Greenwood squad. Our good friend @GHSFAN09 reported that Glasgow has been fighting with injuries for a bit and this was amplified as the first half score was 24-12. Glasgow never scored again while Greenwood tacked on 3 more TDs. Depth was a real issue for the Scotties. But all is not lost, as you should be favored in all your remaining games except maybe Etown. 14. Muhlenberg County (6A) – PR: Top 20; LW: 15. Mustangs took the bye week off after trouncing 2A Hancock County 42-3, and now travel to the Land of John James Audubon to take on the Henderson County Colonels coming off their first win of the year (55-13 vs 6A Ohio County). Last year, Henderson beat Muhlenberg 35-12 in Greenville. I’m pickin the Stangs in this one even though they are the underdog! 15. Caldwell County (3A) – Fresh off a 45-20 win at 3A District Rival Paducah Tilghman, you seem to be riding high after a rocky non-district slate against tough upper classification teams. If healthy, I can see Caldwell making a move and being a very tough out on the west side of the bracket of 3A! Others Receiving Votes: Graves County, Allen County Scottsville, Paducah Tilghman, Monroe County, Metcalfe County, Edmonson County, McLean County “Broke Their Maiden” – In horse racing, when you break your maiden, you win your first race. Well this category is for teams that don’t get as much love, but did get their first victory of the season here and I think that’s significant: Henderson County spanked Ohio County 55-13 to get their first W of the year. And a district win at that! No time like the present! Grayson County beat 4A Breckinridge County 49-34 for their first win of the season – Congratulations!!! THE SEXY 6: Glasgow bows out and these 6 teams remain unbeaten this season! Team (% likely to remain undefeated all season) (biggest challengers remaining) (In alphabetical order): Adair County (75%) (Elizabethtown and Casey County) Bowling Green (95%) (Greenwood and McCracken County) Franklin Simpson (65%) (Allen County Scottsville, and Russellville) Mayfield (85%) (Caldwell County) Muhlenberg County (25%) (Henderson County, McCracken County, Daviess County) Russellville (50%) (Franklin Simpson) THE SULLEN 6: With Henderson County (and Grayson County – How did I forget them?) surging on, these 6 troopers remain winless on the season! Team (% likely to get a win this season) (best chance at a win remaining) (In alphabetical order): Barren County (40%) (Grayson County and Edmonson County) Caverna (25%) (Fort Knox) Fulton County (10%) (Merge with Fulton City, Earthquake, Hurricane, Forfeit) Logan County (50%) (Todd County Central) Todd County Central (50%) (Logan County) Warren Central (10%) (Warren East)

  17. BluegrassPreps 2017 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 10 & Post-Season Preview Edition Concerning the top story line for this week: The third season has arrived: Playoff Time! The time most of us cherish most, as teams prepare for the win or go home drama ahead! Looking back, we have had some terrific football this season! These playoffs seem pretty open (At least initially) with many teams in the West capable of making deep playoff runs! Get your honey-do’s out of the way Sports Fans and get out and watch some playoff High School Football! Nothing Like it! Popcorn N Coke Top 10 Version – Week 10: Man it was a Frog-Strangler of a Friday Night!!! Cold and wet conditions gripped all teams in the West causing coaching staffs to have to gear down into slower, less risky offensive and defensive sets (except Mayfield). Conditions made it difficult on the fans as well. With these conditions, I find it best not to take these games totally as they seem. Most times you can just look at the scoreboard and know how a game went. These aren’t those kinds of games. These games are just get the lead and grind it out and go home as fast as you can, where you can’t run what you really like to run offensively speaking. 1. Bowling Green 5A (8-2): Win 28-0 vs 5A Bullitt Central 2. Mayfield 2A (9-1): Win 55-14 at 3A Caldwell County 3. Christian County 5A (10-0): Win 20-10 at 3A Paducah Tilghman 4. South Warren 4A (8-2): Win 21-16 at 2A Owensboro Catholic 5. Caldwell County 3A (8-2): Loss 55-14 vs 2A Mayfield 6. Franklin Simpson 4A (7-3): Win 55-6 at 1A Russellville 7. Logan County 4A (10-0): Win 34-6 vs 2A Todd County Central 8. McCracken County 6A (6-4): BYE Week 9. Glasgow 2A (7-3): Loss 20-12 vs 3A Elizabethtown 10. Apollo 5A (7-3): Loss 26-7 vs 6A Daviess County Week 10 Western Kentucky Game of the Week: 9-1 2A Mayfield 55 at 8-2 3A Caldwell County 14. YOUZZZAAA!:eek::eek::eek: Double Nickels on the road vs a worthy opponent! Speaks volumes to me!!! The Mayfield defense played very well, bending several times, but came up with HUGE turnovers in critical times to get the ball back to their outstanding offense. To go into hostile territory with difficult playing conditions and still roll just like any other game says this team is ready to go DEEP into the playoffs! For Caldwell County, I take my hat off and scratch my head a bit. Is this a reflection of Mayfield being just that good or a reflection that you really haven’t been tested in a while and not quite as good as your record would suggest? I’m not sure, but still think you could pull a playoff upset at home! More on these 2 below! Meat & Potato’s Version Week 10 Top 10: 10) Apollo 5A (7-3) – LW: 9 – Preseason: Not Ranked (NR) – District Record – (3-1) - Week 10: Loss 26-7 vs County Rival 6A Daviess County (5-5). I don’t have any stats on this one, but again think this game meant more to Daviess County with Apollo just looking to get ready for next week’s game hosting Greenwood. I think Coach Crume was willing to lose this one in order to be in a better position to win Friday night! GREAT Season Eagles! Playoff Snapshot: Where did this team come from? I mean… did they and Logan County get together with Harry Potter and magically transform overnight? Just seems that way… Just a remarkable season! Apollo earned their first winning season since 2009 and first 8 win regular season since 2004; also the last time they beat rival Owensboro. Can’t say it enough…Outstanding season!!! Ceiling: Show up at BG Week 2 and have the lead in the second half. But it doesn’t last! Floor: Turnovers and penalties could let the Greenwood Gators win one for SR QB Jackson Adams! Purple88 Pick: Apollo is too good for Greenwood this year and the Eagles win by 3 TDs. Show up in BG and play very well only being down by 7 at the half. BG finds another gear in the 2nd and ends a terrific Eagles season 42-17. 9) Glasgow (2A) – 2017 Record 7-3 - LW: 7 - Preseason Rank: Top 20; [District Record: 3-0] Week 10: Loss 20-12 vs 3A Elizabethtown (9-1). Battled valiantly in this one and was up 12-7 at the half… But couldn’t tackle on both special teams TDs and costs you the game. Tough loss because you played well enough to win. Still a very fine regular season Scotties!!! Playoff Snapshot: Glasgow has played well this season with a difficult non-district schedule in order to attempt to prepare for the 2A Jefferson County Beasts! This team is well coached and has terrific athletes. 7 and 3 is fine record and I expect most in Glasgow are pleased with that! Ceiling: Roll Covington Holy Cross; Sneak by a talented Newport Central Catholic; Face a better than you think Lloyd Memorial team and win the Region in OT! Face a destined to get to Lexington Danville squad and just get outmatched. Floor: NCC is good enough to beat you, even at Glasgow. This is your floor. Purple 88 Pick: The Scotties make it to the Regional Final game and play well, but Lloyd Memorial just makes more plays and wins 28-24 in a well-played game. Go Scotties! 8) McCracken County (6A) – Last Week (LW): 10 - Preseason Rank: 9 - 2017 Record 6-4; [District Record 4-0] Week 10: BYE Week. Rested and healed up! The Mustangs get ready to host Poor Ole’ Muhlenberg County again. My recommendation is to blast them out early and rest your players you can’t do without! Playoff Snapshot: Cross-bracketing is the Mustangs Friend this year, as it will keep them away from the Jefferson County Beasts all the way to the State Semi-Final! The opportunity is NOW Mustangs! Ceiling: Win the regional championship vs probably Central Hardin and Host the Trinity Shamrocks over on the Left Bank. Play hard and fight to the end, but that’s all she wrote…. No shame losing to the #9 team in the Nation! Floor: Come in “unfocused” and let a dangerous Daviess County team with revenge on their mind capitalize on too many turnovers. And to lose here would be devastating IMO. Purple88 Pick: Running clock Muhlenberg County; beat a game Daviess County squad by 2 TDs; and take Central Hardin’s Best Shot and win 24-14. Host Big T and get a rough way to go 56-7. Still an excellent year and MUCH to build on! Go Stangs! 7) Logan County 4A 2017 Record (10-0) – Last Week (LW): 8 – District Record: 4-0 - Week 10: Win 34-6 vs 2A Todd County Central (6-3). Don’t have many stats here either, but on a grim night for playing conditions, the Cougars finish off what they started – their FIRST UNDEFEATED REGULAR SEASON IN SCHOOL HISTORY!!! Sound the trumpets!!! :dancingpa Unprecedented achievement! Congratulations Coach Adler, Players and Cougar Nation!!! Playoff Snapshot: The BEST Story in the West & the BEST Story in the State 2017 – the Logan County Cougars! Epic turnaround we will be referencing for years to come capped off with an Undefeated regular season on the heels of the state’s longest losing streak. Start writing the book now… But I feel the Cougars aren’t done and like the sweet taste of Victory. But how are their wounded comrades? Will be vitally important later! But the Cougars have the ability to play in Russellville until the State Championship Game – Big Advantage! Ceiling: In the second round, you will struggle with the athleticism coming your way, but they know not the Heart of a Cougar and Cougar Nation rolls on. Up next is Franklin Simpson who has been achieving steady runs to the State Championship game for some time now – OH What the Hey – Logan County in this one too! But the train runs out of coal at the Semi-State as a gritty Collins squad finally stops Cougar Nation after a remarkable run! Floor: The team in the second round is good enough to beat you and that would be your floor! Purple88 Pick: Logan County ROLLS in Week 1; gets tested significantly, but refuses to die and ekes out a 24-17 win over Warren East. When Franklin Simpson comes to town, they are all business and stops Logan 28-17 in a hard fought game! Go get em Cougars!!! 6) Franklin Simpson (4A) – LW: 6 - Preseason Rank: 4 - 2017 Record 7-3; District Record 3-0] Week 10: Win 55-6 at Old Rival 1A Russellville (6-4). Not much to see here on a cold, rainy evening in Russellville. Many Wildcats play well, but not sure Russellville was really in this one from the start. Playoff Snapshot: After some speed bumps early in the year, this Wildcats team has really come on! Coming off an undefeated 2016 regular season, I want to think this Wildcat Team has benefitted from the early season losses. If you are a Wildcat fan, you have to like where you sit going into this postseason run! Ceiling: Playing for the 4A State Championship in Lexington! You won’t be the favorite, but your opponent isn’t as invincible and if you can get some momentum going in that game, especially early, you can win it! Floor: I think Madisonville is capable of beating you, but I just don’t think they will. But that’s your floor. Purple88 Pick: Running clock Hop County Central; Beat a tough and physical Madisonville squad in a closer than predicted game. Travel to a better than predicted Logan County, struggle early, but come on late and win by 1 TD. Edge a very well coached Collins squad by 3 points and travel to Lexington for a Class 4A rematch. I will be pulling for you, but you will have to win the turnover battle to win this game! 5) Caldwell County (3A) – LW: 4 - Preseason Rank: Top 15 - 2017 Record 8-2; [District Record 4-0] Week 10: EJ Austin Western Kentucky Game of the Week: Loss 55-14 vs Old Rival 2A Mayfield (9-1). While I expected Mayfield to win, I did not expect this score. Some teams handle adverse weather conditions better than others. I’m not sure if Caldwell just came out of the locker room down 7 or what, but just never got the feel they were playing with much energy, especially defensively. For example, Caldwell has been one of the best defensive squads in the West, especially against the pass. But Mayfield passes cut through the Caldwell D like the P51 Mustang (one of the Best US Planes of All-Time!) cut through the Nazi lines in WWII. One game Tigers – shake it off and move on!!! Congratulations to Hunter VanHooser who is now the leading tackler in Caldwell County History!!! Well done! Playoff Snapshot: The Tigers have played much better than I anticipated they would this season (barring last Friday Night). Their defense is good enough to win deep playoff games; can their offense do enough to win those games? You tell me… Ceiling: I think the Tigers can avenge some old demons and send the Elizabethtown Panthers home for the winter! These 2 have had some terrific battles before and even though you wouldn’t be favored, you would be at home and that’s important for that game! Can’t pull the trigger against Boyle County for you though, but you prove me wrong… Go Tigers!!! Floor: Larue County is a dangerous team. They are under the radar and you likely won’t get up for them. If you are too flat; it could be all she wrote for Caldwell! Purple88 Pick: Running clock vs Hart Co in Round 1; Beat Larue by 7. Play Etown a nip n’ tuck game and I want to pick you to win this game, but just don’t feel it with how Etown is playing right now. But prove me wrong Tigers!!! 4). South Warren (5A) – LW: 5 - Preseason Rank: 10 - 2017 Record 8-2; District Record 3-1] Week 10: Win 21-16 at 2A Owensboro Catholic (6-4). I will say it again, OCATH is not your average 2A team. And I thought they likely played harder than South did in this game. BUT, you HAVE to take into consideration the double whammy of FINALLY playing the Bowling Green game and all that emotion and also losing handily. Taking all that into account, plus the crappy weather, and being on the road, and South being an effective passing team, I’m not that surprised by this outcome. And I still think they can make a good run. BUT make NO MISTAKE, South Warren has THE TOUGHEST DRAW OF ANY TEAM IN CLASS 5A. Let me back that statement up: 1st Round – Graves County, who is capable of beating South and playing well in their own right. 2nd Round – at Christian County, undefeated Christian County. 3rd Round – at Bowling Green, Defending 5A State Champions. 4th Round – at Covington Catholic, #2 in the State with arguably their best team ever. 5th Round – State Final – you’ll be challenged in this game regardless. :eyeonyou::eyeonyou::eyeonyou:CRAZY DIFFICULT!!! Playoff Snapshot: South Warren has had a terrific inaugural 5A season. They played several tough team early (winning those) and 2 really tough teams late (losing those). But you have to think South learned quite a bit from those really tough games that will help prepare them for the playoff wars ahead! Solid team here! Ceiling – I may get some flak for this one, but I think South is capable of pulling some shockers; winning the Regional Championship and facing Covington Catholic in the Semi-State game. Don’t like your chances there, but would be a heck of a year if that plays out!!! Floor – Graves County is good enough to beat you in round 1, especially if the penalties are severe for South. This is your floor. Purple88 Pick: I predict South to beat Graves County is a very competitive, fist fight kind of game. Travel to undefeated Christian County and have a chance to win, but just feel it's Christian County’s year to challenge for the Regional Championship. South falls 21-20. 3) Christian County (5A) – LW: 3 - Preseason Rank: 2 - 2017 Record 10-0; [District Record 4-0] Week 10: Win 20-10 at Paducah Tilghman 3A (4-6). Congratulations on earning your first undefeated regular season of varsity football in school history! Big Deal right there considering the Colonels rich football history! Lot of hard work went into making this happen! Enjoy it this week Colonels – you’ve earned a bunny Week 1!!! :bunny::bunny::bunny: Playoff Snapshot: Not sure how you can improve on an undefeated season! But I will call to the spotlight your schedule, as it does not provide a lot of tests to get you ready for deep playoff games IMO. Now you may have prepared yourself on your own and if you have, your efforts on the field will reflect that! Let’s see what you got!!! Ceiling – This team is clearly capable of making the 4 Game Run to Lexington!!! Floor – Second Round of the Playoffs, no matter who comes to the Stadium of Champions – South Warren or Graves County – either team is good enough to beat you. Plain and simple…. Purple88 Pick: I spoke to our good friend @TackleTrap in January of this year and we predicted BG would travel to Christian County in November with the regional championship on the line. I say that plays out. While I think Christian could win that game, I just honestly feel BG is better prepared to win it. I’ll take BG 35 Christian County 21. 2) Mayfield (2A) – LW: 2 - Preseason Rank: 3 - 2017 Record 9-1; District Record 3-0] Week 10: EJ Austin Western Kentucky Game of the Week – Win 55-14 at 3A Caldwell County (8-2). When you play Mayfield in late October and you get a chance to score; you better capitalize! Mayfield puts so much pressure on you from a “having to keep up” standpoint, I think the mental fatigue took over after the Cardinals got up a couple TDs and that was all she wrote! The Cardinals 4 Phases (offense, defense, special teams, and JV) all played so well; not sure who to mention as I’ll leave many out who played well (Valuable Minutes for the Mayfield JV also - will bode well for next season:thumb:), but the dual QB position this season played by Stinson and Guthrie has been particularly impressive. Usually 2 QBs playing significantly don’t work out that well; seems just fine in Mayfield! Would also keep defensive coordinators up late at night I’d think as well! Playoff Snapshot: These Cardinals have sailed the 2017 waters with incredible seamanship! Their first 5 games saw stiff competition be overwhelmed early and often. Weary, they sailed on to Clarksville to battle a desperate (lost up in Beechwood the week before) 3A Title Contender in Corbin who had to use the “If All Else Fails” Playbook to nip the Cardinals by a FG. The ship pulled back into port for the annual recharging/District Bloodbath and just set sail again LOADED for a deep run – plowing through Princeton – on its way to Lexington!!! Ceiling: This is the Year the Cardinals can start another consecutive Championship Game appearance streak – This time at the Grocery Bag in Lexington! Floor: At the first of the year, I would have said OCath can beat you. But this game would be at Mayfield and OCath has faced too many obstacles during the season IMO – I just don’t see it. But the Desales Colts have been to Mayfield before and they’d like to win this time. They are capable and they are your floor! Purple88 Pick: I think Mayfield goes to Lexington is the bottom line. I think the first and second round games are running clocks. I’d like to think the OCath game would not be a running clock, but it might be as well. The Desales game will be Epic with the game going back and forth. I think Mayfield has more offensive ability than Desales outstanding D is used to and that’s the difference – Mayfield 28 Desales 21. Go to Lexington and get it done Cardinals!!! 1) Bowling Green (5A) – LW: 1 - Preseason Rank: 1 - 2017 Record 8-2; District Record 4-0] Week 10: Win 28-0 at 5A Bullitt Central (6-4). Just a mud bog of a game with players “tippy-toeing” around trying to find decent footing to kick it back in gear. The BG D played well as did 2nd team RB Ja’vyon Collins with 3 TDs on the night! No significant injuries which is great news! Good Regular Season Purples! Playoff Snapshot: Some will say BG didn’t have a good regular season. Then the phase “the pigs get fed and the hogs get slaughtered” comes into play as expectations have become forecast above realistic understanding. Facts are BG lost to a fired up 6A team (PRP) on the road second game of the season; St Xavier strategically places their bye week in Week 2 to prep ahead of the BG game and comes to El Donaldson Stadium and wins fair and square by 11 points. I think the young Purples learned a lot from those games! Now let’s go looking for #7!!! Ceiling: BG has the ability to make it to Lexington – plain and simple!!! Floor: I have a ton of respect for the Owensboro Red Devils, so I will say the Red Devils are their floor. It would be a HUGE disappointment for BG to lose that game, but the Red Devils are like those old firecrackers called “Jumpin Jacks”! You light them and got back quickly because you never knew where they were going to go. They made a whizzing noise and bounced around and you couldn’t get a good handle on them. That’s Owensboro! Makes me nervous for that game as I know they will play as hard as they possibly can. Purple88 Pick: The Purples have been picking up momentum steadily since 2 early season setbacks against better 6A schools. They have a deadly combination of good talent, good speed, good schedule, and a great coaching staff who has been through these firecracker infested grounds before. I think BG handles Owensboro by 21. They play the best Apollo team I’ve ever known and win by the same amount. Travel to Christian County and win by a TD. The Colonels of Covington Catholic, with arguably their best team in their illustrious history, come calling the day after Thanksgiving! Would be EPIC! My feelings are mixed on this game. My head tells me Covington Catholic will win. My heart won’t go against the men in Purple and Gold. I’ll leave it at that. But the team that wins this game; wins it all!!! Next Tier 11 Thru 15 – 11. Tier: Madisonville-North Hopkins 4A – LW: 11; Preseason: Top 15 – 2017 Record: (6-4) [District Record – 3-1] - Week 10: Win 37-6 vs 3A Fort Campbell (2-8). Solid win in tough conditions, which fits the way the Maroons want to play! Good regular season Maroons as you improve off a 4-7 2016 campaign! Playoff Snapshot: The Maroons have played well this season and really developed a strong rushing attack with Hightower and Miller, who will both pass 1,000 yards on the season. The untimely loss to Logan County put you in a MUCH tougher part of the bracket, but you still have much to play for. Purple88 Pick: One of the toughest 4A opening round games you’ll find, as the Maroons host Allen County-Scottsville. The run-first Maroons will look to set that tough physical tone, while the pass-first Patriots will look to ride the arm of their senior leader QB Chase Wilson. Both teams struggled a bit down the stretch, but I’ll go with Madisonville as when the air gets colder, it is easier to run it than throw it. The second round shows a trip to Franklin Simpson. Not this year Maroons, but still a good season overall! Warren East (4A) – LW: 12 - Preseason Rank: Outside Top 20 - 2017 Record 6-4; District Record 2-1] Week 10: Win 36-6 vs. 3A Bardstown (3-7). East just has way too many athletes for this Bardstown team. They have already doubled their win total from last season! Very good season Raiders!!! Playoff Snapshot: Outside of Logan County, I have probably been more impressed with the season Warren East has had than any other team from what I expected. If you look at their record 6 and 4, 2 of those losses were 2 of the best teams in 4A IMO Wayne County and Franklin Simpson. They lost to a good 2A team in Glasgow and a gritty 2A team in Monroe County by a combined 3 points when they were dealing with considerable injuries. Purple88 Pick: The Hopkinsville Tigers will travel to Warren East for a date on the Smurf Turf. The Tigers have been faced with more than any team should have to face in a single season (death of a teammate, loss of irreplaceable key players, change of coaching staff, and reinvigoration of their schedule going from Team Cupcake to Team Rambo!). But the Raiders must come out and just play football and I like them to win this game and travel to Russellville and face the new sheriff in town Logan County. While I do think East is good enough to beat Logan County, I just don’t think they do it here. Great Season Raiders!!! The future seems bright! 12. Tier: Graves County 5A (6-4) – Last Week (LW): 12 – District Record 2-2 - Week 10: Win 36-13 vs 4A Calloway County (0-9). Eagles double up on the poor ole’ Lakers in total yards and run behind that big OLine to get a comfortable win. Sets up the best opening round game in Class 5A when the Eagles visit South Warren! This is a good team here! Playoff Snapshot: The Eagles have had a good season. I’m sure they would have liked to have sealed the deal vs Christian County and put that as their signature win on the year. But a solid year none-the-less. Purple88 Pick: While I think you can beat South Warren, I don’t think you will and fall by 6 points. QB Mathis returns for his SR year next year and I think the Eagles will be better next year than this one! Owensboro Catholic (2A) – LW: 11 - Preseason Rank: 5 - 2017 Record 6-4; District Record 4-0] Week 10: Loss 21-16 vs 5A South Warren (8-2). I didn’t expect you to win this game Aces, but I did expect you to be competitive and that’s exactly what you did – compete at a high level on a difficult weather night. I am impressed by this effort and look for you to roll into the playoffs! Playoff Snapshot: Following the Aces this season has been like chasing water-based paint in a glass of water – they keep moving in an out of focus, mystically moving about (early season schedule) and then all of a sudden they appear as a solid film (dominant district campaign) on top. Purple88 Pick: Honestly, I’ve known the Aces path for some time now. Running clock Webster County and maybe Murray too. Travel to Mayfield with the regional championship on the line and just come up short against a better team. Nothing to fret over, you’re just going to need a complete season with much less adversity to overcome to be able to take down Mayfield. Still a good season for a team that was too hyped at the beginning of the year to no fault of their own. 13. Tier: Daviess County 6A (5-5) LW: 14 – District Record 2-2 - Week 10: Win 26-7 at 5A Apollo (7-3). This is a Big win for Daviess and sets the tone going into the playoffs! And I still think Daviess needed this game more than Apollo did. Playoff Snapshot: The Panthers have a nice offense, but seem to have trouble putting a full game together at times. I know you wish you could have that Henderson County game back. You need to win that one next year to take a step forward. Good luck. Purple88 Pick: Daviess goes to north Etown to take on North Hardin. I think you can win this game and will be pulling for you, but feel it’s a draw. With that in mind, I think you have the best player on the field (WR Marquel Tinsley) so I think you’ll win by a TD. Week 2 you have to travel to McCracken County. Don’t like your chances there even with revenge in your favor for motivation. You play a strong game; just not enough McCracken County 42- Daviess County 34. Allen County Scottsville (4A) LW: 13 - Preseason Rank: Top 20 - 2017 Record 7-3; [District Record 1-2] Week 10: 29-0 vs gritty 2A Monroe County (7-3). Grisly night; but the Patriots took care of business in this one. Sets the stage for a tough 1st round playoff game in Madisonville! Playoff Snapshot: Uneven is the first word that comes to my mind concerning ACS. QB Chase Wilson is an upper level talent, so I expected a better showing in the tougher games. They beat Greenwood by 3 before their wheels fell off and beat Glasgow by 4 in Scottsville; the rest of their wins is to a rag-tag group that have no shot at winning a playoff game. Purple88 Pick: The Patriots have to travels to Madisonville to take on a tough Maroons squad. While the Patriots could rise up and win the game, they have given me nothing to suggest that will happen. Will be a while before a better QB than Chase Wilson walks out of that Patriots locker room! 14. Tier: Owensboro (5A) – 2017 Record 4-6 – LW: 15 - Preseason Rank: 6 - [District Record 1-3] Week 10: Win 39-20 vs Henderson County (4-6). According the Riherds Page stats, Owensboro amassed over 300 yards on the ground. That is not surprising. What is surprising is that Star Imonte Owsley got the ball for 14 carries and 127 yards and 2 TDs. That is almost 3 times as many touches as the Red Devils best player touched the ball vs Apollo. Trend??? You tell me… Playoff Snapshot: Well sports fans, I was praising the Owensboro coaching staff for going to the veer last season as I still feel it was a good call at that time, but I honestly think it’s easy to armchair QB it and say they should have flipped the switch the other way this season. Just too much talent to not try to scheme to get those athletes in space. Purple88 Pick: Red Devils travel to BG in the first round. Owensboro could win this game. I just don’t think they get it done though, but they scare me honestly as they’ll have nothing to lose, play loose and compete hard. But A LOT of baggage has built up off Frederica Street. Some form of change is needed. NO WAY Owensboro should be down here in the 14th Tier!!! :no: Union County (3A) – LW: 15 - Preseason Rank: Not Ranked - 2017 Record 8-2; [District Record 2-2] Week 10: Win 39-29 vs 2A Murray (4-6) Exactly what you needed Braves fans! Got an opponent that didn’t roll over and played you pretty well, but not enough to get the win from you. Your regular season record matches the 2013 season where you also won a playoff game vs Ballard Memorial. Playoff Snapshot: The Braves have been fun to follow this season honestly. They are a tough scrappy team that plays hard and is fun to watch. Had a HUGE crowd when they hosted Top Dog Caldwell County. A bit out of their reach at the moment, but I like what’s going on over in Morganfield! Great season! Purple88 Pick: The loss to Tilghman stings now as you will have to go on the road to a really tough Larue County Hawks team that has only lost once on the road to Etown. I want you win Braves but just don’t feel it this year. But hope to see you next year at the Central Hardin 7v7! 15. Tier: Henderson County (6A) – LW: 13 - Preseason Rank: NR - 2017 Record 4-6; [District Record 3-1] Week 10: Loss 39-20 at 4-6 Owensboro. As long as you come out of this one without injury, I’d say you’re in good shape Hendo, as I think Owensboro “should” be better than you are this year. Need to ramp up now though, as a playoff win would be HUGE for this program going into the offseason! Playoff Snapshot: You may not like their record, but Coach Boston and Company are making their way back up the ladder IMO. Playing TOUGH opponents early in the season and handling their district minus McCracken County in fine fashion and hosting a playoff game. Just like in the pre-season, I would call that a win! Purple88 Pick: Host a Gritty Meade County team, but find a way to win. Travel to Etown to play Central Hardin and while you can win this game, I just don’t think you will. Prove me wrong Colonels! Good, solid season Colonels!!! Paducah Tilghman 3A (4-6) – LW: 14 – Preseason – Top 20 - Week 10: Loss 20-10 vs 5A Christian County (10-0). Team Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda gets excruciatingly close to one of the biggest upsets in the state this season, but couldn’t close out the deal in the 4th Quarter. Still a dangerous team, but likely only 1 bullet left in the Blue Tornado gun this season. Playoff Snapshot: One of the toughest schedules you’ll find in the early season for a 3A school anywhere. Still has a punchers chance for a one-time upset. Still think this team has potential, but that song gets old after a while. Purple88 Pick: Edmonson County is good enough to beat you, but I don’t think they will (Long, Long bus ride!). The bus goes the other way in Week 2 as you’ll have to roll on down the WK Parkway to Etown to face the Panthers. Just don’t see it Blue Tornado’s, but ramp up for next season and have a less turbulent off-season and I can see you making noise in 2018! Others Receiving Votes: Hopkinsville, Edmonson County, Monroe County, Greenwood, Russellville, Metcalfe County, Ohio County. Week 10 Players of the Week: (I don’t have a ton of stats this week, so please add as you find players to add here) Congratulations to all the young men who have had a spot on this list throughout the season! Great Work!!! 1) Hunter VanHooser LB – Caldwell County – Breaks the All-Time Tackler Record at Caldwell County – Congratulations!!! 2) Gabe Harned and Josh Whitis – Graves County - both over 100 yards rushing vs Calloway County! 3) Juriah Hightower – RB Madisonville – 20 carries for 177 yards and 2 TDs vs Ft Campbell! Week 10 – Teams Trending Down – Plain and Simple… Caldwell County (3A) – Down – Plain & Simple… the Tigers got their doors blown off! Bad timing. I’m aware they played Mayfield. Past Tiger teams have put up stiff battles with the Cardinals – 2017 was not one of those. Wanted to pick you to upset Etown. I know it’s just one game, but it was a bad one… Paducah Tilghman (3A) – Down – Not much more deflating for a team to have the biggest upset in the state slip thought your fingers… But Team woulda, coulda, shoulda HAD THIS GAME! I realize you were playing undefeated 5A Christian County. I still think you can upset someone you’re not supposed to, but this was a lost opportunity! Week 10 – Teams Trending Up – Plain and Simple… Christian County (5A) – Up – Congratulations Colonels on your first undefeated regular season in your schools history! BIG DEAL HERE! Best of luck going forward… :dancingpa Logan County (4A) – Up – I think they should make a movie of these guys… small county school; been down for years of consecutive losing; change coaching staff; grind out a tough 2016 season, BUT come through and get a program changing win vs Todd County Central at the end of that season, which IMO was the spring board over the winter/spring/summer to allow the Cougars to rise up in 2017 – And Rise Up they Did!!! Congratulations Cougar Nation!!! :dancingpa MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Congratulations to both Christian County (much more expected) and Logan County (no one expected) and truly memorable and inaugural undefeated regular seasons in both programs history! Historic accomplishments! Good luck to both in the playoffs!!! The Sullen 6: It’s been a long season for Breckinridge County, Butler County, Calloway County, Caverna, Fulton City, and Warren Central. I truly want all these teams to break this streak next season. Will likely be difficult, but if Logan County has taught us anything, it’s that if you believe you can and you instill confidence in young men – anything is possible! Good luck next season! 2017 WESTERN KENTUCKY REGULAR SEASON ALL WEST TEAM QB – Kolbe Langhi – Christian County RB – Tre Bass – Franklin Simpson RB - Gary Hardy – Logan County WR – Marquel Tinsley – Daviess County WR – Caleb Huskey – Warren East WR – Peyton Peters - Apollo OL – Tanner Bowles, Glasgow OL – Trevor Terrell, Mayfield OL – Jackson Burke, Owensboro DL – Jacob Lacey – South Warren LB – Justice Dingle – Bowling Green LB – Pete Cross – South Warren LB – Kyle Hurt - Mayfield DB – Saul Brady – Franklin Simpson DB – Vito Tisdale – Bowling Green DB - Trel Riley- Caldwell County S – Corey Trice – Christian County S – Imonte Owsley - Owensboro Kick Returner – Ziyon Kenner – Bowling Green ATH – Jackson Adams - Greenwood ATH – Jacob Lightfoot – Allen County-Scottsville ATH – Trevor Grant – Graves County Coach – Todd Adler, Logan County Farewell: End of the Road!
