Taking a look at the top trends and players in Week 1:

Lexington Catholic - The Knights look like they’re going to be firmly in the mix to win it all this season. They rolled over Holmes on Saturday then handled Highlands fairly easily on Sunday. Ben JohnsonBenJohnson6'3" | CGLexington Catholic | 2021StateKY gets all the headlines but it’s a true team effort with Catholic as Jack GohmannJackGohmann6'3" | SGLexington Catholic | 2022StateKY, Ryan Russell, Reece PotterReecePotter6'10" | CLexington Catholic | 2023StateKY and Hudson SparksHudsonSparks6'5" | SFLexington Catholic | 2023StateKY are all having strong seasons so far. And they just added a 6’8 transfer in John McCrearJohnMcCrear6'8" | PFLexington Catholic | 2023StateKY from Michigan. They’ll be a tough out when post season gets here.
