This has been quite the year for the Kroger KSR Game of the Week. From a No. 1 catch on “You Got Mossed” to a couple of instant classics, this year’s tour has led to some amazing moments. Corbin’s 6-0 win over Frederick Douglass in front of a packed crowd at historic and newly renovated Campbell Field/Denes Stadium last Friday was one of the most exciting events in series history.
This week’s show goes back on the road and features Lexington Catholic at Boyle County. BC is the No. 1 ranked team in the state in Kentucky Sports Radio’s most recent poll. Boyle County’s home field makes for one of the best atmospheres in the Commonwealth.
Boyle County is undefeated this season. A 5-0 record includes victories over the top-ranked teams in two different classifications: Lexington Christian (2A) and Scott County (5).
Led by Mr. Football candidate Montavin Quisenberry, Boyle County is loaded with talent. Quisenberry has produced 427 combined yards and scored nine touchdowns on offense and defense. He also pitched in a kickoff return for six points and intercepted two passes. The Boyle County offense is averaging just over 48 points per game while giving up 13.6 for a winning margin of 35 per contest.
Do-it-all athlete Avery Bodner, one of my favorite players in Kentucky, is the team’s top rusher with 381 yards and 8 touchdowns on the ground. He also leads the team in tackles with 33. Quarterback Sage Dawson is completing 72% of his passes and has thrown seven touchdowns compared to just one interception.
3A Lexington Catholic is currently 2-3; the record is somewhat deceiving. The Knights have faced a difficult slate of games that include losses to Highlands, Corbin, and LCA. A visit to top-ranked Boyle County will be yet another significant challenge.
Quarterback Jackson Wasik paces the Knights with 1,099 passing yards and 12 touchdowns. Joaquin Pereira is the Knight’s top rusher with 269 yards and 5 scores. Jackson Kreutzer’s 25 receptions leads the team. He also has 272 yards and 3 touchdowns. Sam Clements has added 17 catches for 271 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Lex Cath’s defense features three players with 35+ tackles: Bennett Williams (38), Brady Wasic (37), and John Moses (36). Sam Clements’ three interceptions have also led to field position-altering plays.
WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
The Kroger KSR Game of the Week has produced some incredible moments and games in 2023. The show goes back on the road to Danville on Friday in order to get a close look at top-ranked Boyle County. Lexington Catholic’s demanding schedule continues. The Knights will be looking to shock the Commonwealth by upsetting the defending 4A champions.
