Ten reasons why Boyle County and Danville will make it a Title Town Repeat when they go for state championships this weekend in Louisville.
Tradition: This is an annual game for both teams. Boyle is playing in the state championship game for the sixth straight year, Danville for the third time in four years. Plus, both teams expect to win. Boyle is 5-for-5 in state title games and Danville 10-for-11.
Scheduling: Both teams plan their non-district games to prepare for this event. Boyle opened the season at Lexington Catholic, played in Commonwealth Stadium and survived the Title Town Showdown with Danville. And then there was that game at Highlands. Danville also took on Highlands as well as Boyle, the two best teams in Class AAA, and faced a Garrard County team that was as good offensively as almost anyone in Class AA.
Momentum: Danville has had four straight physical playoff games with little margin for error but has made game-winning plays in each. Boyle is on an offensive roll and has averaged 445 yards and 53 points per game in four blowout playoff wins.
