Class A Final

mayfield

Mayfield wins its second championship in a row with an impressive win over Williamsburg 42-0.  It was 35-0 Mayfield after one quarter and the Cardinals coasted from there for the victory.  This ended the magical ride for the Yellow Jackets of Williamsburg.  We would like to congratulate Coach Jerry Herron and the Jackets on a great season of their own.

Class 2A Final

desales

In a mild surprise, Louisville DeSales prevents Newport Central Catholic from repeating as State Champs with a 34-26 victory.

Class 3A Final

belfry

In an defensive struggle, a third quarter field goal was all that Belfry needed to take the championship over Wayne County 3-0.  It was the first loss for Wayne County in their best season in school history.

Class 4A Final

collins

In the best finish of any of the championship games, Collins wins their 1st state title with a touchdown pass with 7 seconds remaining to prevent Highlands from a 23rd state title 37-24.

Class 5A Final

purples

Down 14-0 after one quarter, Bowling Green scores 49 unanswered points to claim their 3rd state title in a row by defeating Pulaski County 49-14.  The win gives the Purples their 44th straight victory.  That ranks in the top 8 current winning streaks in the Nation.  This ended Pulaski County’s bid for a perfect season of their own.

Class 6A Final

scott county

In a tough contest, Scott County outlasts Meade County 21-14 for Scott County’s first state title since 1975.

DeSales and Collins claim their 1st state title for their football programs.

Congrats to each of the 6 KHSAA Class Football Champions.  Well deserved!!

Well that concludes another great football season for Kentucky state football.  We cannot wait to see what 2014 has to offer.

Have a great week!!

2013 Steve Black Show Mythical Football Championships

For the 2013 KHSAA football championships, I have decided to share my mythical high school football championships for the schools in the Tri-County area, along 25E (Cumberland Gap Parkway) and those counties that encompass what is recognized as the 13th region when it comes to other sports in this area.  The winners will be recognized on my show and on this website.  Here are the three championships.  May the best team or teams win!!

Mythical Tri-County Champion

This award goes to the school in the tri-county area (Knox, Laurel and Whitley Counties) that has the last football team to be eliminated from the playoffs or wins their class championship.  Schools eligible for this award are Corbin, Knox Central, Lynn Camp, North Laurel, Whitley County and Williamsburg).  South Laurel did not make the playoffs this year, so they are not eligible.  Last year’s winners were Knox Central and Whitley County (both eliminated in the second round).

 

Mythical Champion of 25E

This award has gone on among some of my friends for several years now.  This mythical championship goes to the school in the towns connected by the Cumberland Gap Parkway (25E) that is the last team to be eliminated from the playoffs or wins their class championship.  Schools eligible for this award include Middlesboro, Bell County, Pineville, Knox Central, Lynn Camp and Corbin.  Last year’s winner was Bell County (eliminated in the regional championship).

 

Mythical 13th Region Champion

This award goes to the school in the 13th Region (Bell, Clay, Harlan, Jackson, Knox, Laurel and Whitley Counties) that has the last football team to be eliminated from the playoffs or wins their class championship.  Schools eligible for this award include Middlesboro, Pineville, Bell County, Harlan Independent, Harlan County, Jackson County, Clay County, North Laurel, Williamsburg, Whitley County, Lynn Camp and Knox Central.  South Laurel did not make the playoffs this year, so they are not eligible.   Last year’s winner was Harlan County (eliminated in the final four).
