Extracurricular activities[edit]

Boyle County competes in the several interscholastic sports as The Rebels.[2] The school has rivalries with neighboring schools Danville High School and Lincoln County High School.


Boyle County's football program was coached by Chuck Smith for 13 season. Under Smith, the Rebels compiled a 142-33 record during his tenure. During that time, the school competed in Class AA and Class AAA ranks, winning five consecutive state championships – a state record – from 1999 to 2003.

Smith's teams won the Class AA titles in 1999 and 2000 with perfect 15-0 records. Reclassification changed Boyle County to Class AAA in 2001, but the school again won the crown with another 15-0 mark. The winning streak ended at 47 games (second-longest in Kentucky history) during the 2002 regular season, but Boyle County went on to win the state championship again. The 2003 team returned to a perfect season with a 15-0 slate and state title. Smith's 2004 squad went 12-3, with a loss in the state finals ending the state-record streaks of five consecutive championships and 29 straight playoff victories. Smith would leave after the 2004 season but will return to take over the head coaching position again for the start of the 2014 Season.[citation needed]

As a result of KHSAA class expansion in 2007, the Rebels now compete in Class 4A (6A being the largest - by school population). In 2008, Larry French became the head coach of the rebels. French led the Rebels to a 13-1 record and a trip to the state semifinals. In 2009 and 2010 he led the Rebels to the state championship with perfect 15-0 records. The Boyle County Rebels currently have 7 State Championships in football.[citation needed]
