Class 2A, District 1

I'll figure it out between now and the kickoff of the new season, two weeks from tomorrow, but I'm not sure how Kentucky high-school football works anymore. The top four finishers in District 1 advanced to the Class 2A playoffs last season.

Three of the teams--Murray, Trigg County and Caldwell County--finished their seasons with losses to the eventual-state-champion Fort Campbell. Heath was eliminated by Hancock County.

Class 2A, District 1 Overall District
(1)Murray 10 - 0 4 - 0
(2)Trigg County 6 - 4 3 - 1
(3)Heath 4 - 6 2 - 2
(4)Caldwell County 4 - 6 1 - 3
Reidland 4 - 6 0 - 4

In 2009 district competition, Murray won 17-0 at Trigg County and 28-0 at Heath and won at home 49-0 against Reidland and 20-6 against Caldwell County. The Tigers open the new season at Madisonville-North Hopkins in a non-district tilt, so I will get the opportunity to scout the defending district champs.

Trigg County in 2009 lost 17-0 at home to Murray, won at Caldwell County 30-29 and at Reidland 28-7 and won 35-14 at home against Heath. The Wildcats apparently looked good again, at the summer Border Wars tournament.

Heath lost at home 28-0 to Murray and 35-14 at Trigg County last season; it won 7-6 at Caldwell County and at home against Reidland 34-7. The Pirates will have to depend on a new quarterback this fall, but he's a junior who has grown up in third-year Coach Cory Tilford's spread offense.

Caldwell County lost 39-29 at home to Trigg County and 7-6 at home to Heath. It lost 20-6 at Murray and won 38-21 at Reidland. The Tigers are the sexy choice of media speculation to ratchet up the district standings.

Reidland lost 34-7 at Heath, 49-0 at Murray, 28-7 at home to Trigg County and 38-21 at home to Caldwell County. This has not been a happy era for Greyhound football; in 2007, they closed the season with fewer than 20 players. But the "Friends of Reidland Greyhound Football" Facebook group are hopeful the tide has turned.
