#5: Boyle County Rebels
2012 record: 8-5
The Boyle County Rebels begin our list at number five.
Running back Seph Burke is back after a near 1,500-yard performance running the ball in 2012 to lead the Rebels again this season.
#4: Covington Catholic Colonels
2012 record: 9-4
The number four team in our 4-A preseason poll is the Covington Catholic Colonels.
Dual-threat quarterback Adam Wagner is going to be the new starter for the Colonels. He will have a sufficient receiver to throw the ball to in Evan Braun even with the departure of last year's number one guy, Ethan Egbers. Linebacker Sam Burchell who lead the team in tackles in 2012 will be a senior leader on the defense.
#3: Collins Titans
2012 record: 11-4
After an appearance in last year's state championship our number three team, the Collins Titans, are ready for another run.
Collins will be a show to watch with WKU-committ DeAndre Farris on the field. When the ball is in his hands you never know what can happen. Masai Whyte who is a fellow WKU-commit will be a large presence on their defense.
#2: Lexington Catholic Knights
2012 record: 11-3
The Lexington Catholic Knights check in as our number two team.
Quarterback Reese Ryan has seen an increase in his stock as a prospect and is going to have a chance to prove himself further in 2013. The coach's son Sam Letton will have a break out year as only a sophomore as well.
#1: Highlands Bluebirds
2012 record: 14-1
Was there ever any question on who would be number one on this list? The Highlands Bluebirds are the consensus number one team in our 4-A preseason poll.
Tight end Nick True is another WKU-commit on this list that will help this his team out a lot this year. True will also have someone new throwing the ball him in Drew Houliston. Cornell-commit Seth Hope will be a terror at the defensive end spot for the Bluebirds.
This Friday, Highlands and 6-A frontrunners Trinity will square off in a scrimmage at Trinity (Louisville,KY).
