#5: Lafayette Generals
2012 record: 7-4
Under first year head coach Eric Shaw, the Lafayette Generals are number five in our countdown.
Kaylan Nelson seems like he will be a do-it-all man for the Generals in 2013. Sophomore quarterback Clay Bolin will get his shot under center to lead Lafayette.
#4: Pleasure Ridge Park Panthers
2012 record: 14-1
The Pleasue Ridge Park Panthers made it to their first ever football state championship in 2012 and are number four in 2013.
There will be no more Sumpter to Taylor in 2013 both are headed to WKU to play under Bobby Petrino. The Panthers will instead rely on skill players Delvon Dunn and Malik Walker to give them big plays. Their offensive line on the other hand, only loses one starter and returns prospect Daniel Seum who will move over one spot from center to guard. On defense, they will surely be hurt from the recent injury to Joe Lewis who will sit out due to his knee.
#3: Scott County Cardinals
2012 record: 12-2
Many thought of the semi-final between our number three team Scott County and Trinity as the state final last season.
Wide receiver Scott Daniel will lead the Cardinals in 2013 but will be helped immensely by quarterback Clay Mckee. Daniel will also play on the defensive side of the ball where linebacker Grayson Miller is the most accredited piece of their defense.
#2: St. Xavier Tigers
2012 record: 8-5
St. Xavier is also debuting their new head man this year in Will Wolford and come in at number two.
St. Xavier is in possession of the three headed monster of backs Charles Walker, Austin Davis and Treyveon Percell. These are three backs that would be starters anywhere else and would get a boatload of carries elsewhere. Their new transfer quarterback B.J. Nagle will define the Tigers in 2013. He adapts well and good things are headed to Poplar Level Road.
#1: Trinity Shamrocks
2012 record: 13-1
Looking to complete a four-peat the Trinity Shamrocks are the number one team in 6A.
Reggie Bonnafon has been somewhat of a mystery leading into this season, but a scrimmage against Highlands where he had 320 yards before half time cleared gave clarity to all. They also showed off their duo of wide receivers Cody Swabek and C.J. Ott who both had stellar performances. Though during the scrimmage against Highlands, the Trinity-D was exposed on a few long balls showing the void left by Ryan White. If Trinity can sure up their secondary I see no reason why they shouldn't be doing the same thing they've done three straight years in a row come the end of the season.
