2018 Battles in the Bluegrass Kicks Off Sept. 7

2018 Battles in the Bluegrass Kicks Off Sept. 7

Elizabethtown, KY (August 31, 2018) – In its eighth year, the annual Battles in the Bluegrass – a Bluegrass Cellular initiative to help strengthen and grow local high school athletic programs – will kick off September 7. Bluegrass Cellular announced the eight selected Kentucky high school football teams that will compete in this year’s Battles in the Bluegrass.

The program gives high schools in the South Central region of Kentucky a chance to compete in featured rivalry games and be awarded $750 for participation. Schools are then eligible to compete for a $2,000 end-of-season prize.

Following each of the four football games, a play from each competing team will be uploaded to Bluegrass Cellular’s Facebook page at Once the clips are uploaded, fans will have one week to vote for their favorite plays. In a bracket-style competition, a winner from each match-up will advance to the next round. This process ultimately leads to the finals, which will determine the team that will take home the title of “Play of the Season” and the additional $2,000 prize.

“The buzz and excitement of high school football season is finally here, and we are eager to kick off another season of Battles in the Bluegrass,” said Barry Nothstine, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bluegrass Cellular. “Your favorite school needs your support to win, so be sure to vote. Together, we can help local athletic programs grow.”
