What is Battles in the Bluegrass?
Battles in the Bluegrass is an ongoing initiative from Bluegrass Cellular that gives local high schools the chance to compete in featured football games. By participating in Battles, each school is awarded $750, as well as the chance to compete for the $2,000 end-of-season prize, "Play of the Season."
Bluegrass Cellular promotes each Battle by reaching out to local media, fans and the community to generate as much excitement as possible. As a result, the games become pep rallies for the entire community with halftime activities, fan-appreciation giveaways and fun Battles Gear.
Following each Battles Game, Bluegrass Cellular selects one outstanding play from each team’s highlight reel. The videos are uploaded to the Battles in the Bluegrass web pages and Bluegrass Cellular’s Facebook page. Fans can watch the featured plays and cast their votes by selecting "Like" or "Love" on the video post as directed on the Bluegrass Cellular Facebook page. The winners of each game go on to compete in the semi-final and final rounds. The final winning school takes home $2,000, as well as the coveted title of "Play of the Season."
How does it benefit students and schools?
Strong athletic programs build successful student athletes. The Battles program is an initiative to strengthen and grow local high school athletic programs, ultimately helping student athletes achieve the athletic scholarships needed to reach higher levels of education and success.
How are teams selected?
When the high school football season schedules are announced, Bluegrass Cellular teams up with the Sporting Times to select the top must-see games of the season. The selection committee takes a variety of factors into consideration, including school history and location, team ranking and past Battles participation.
