Boyle County High School, located in Danville, Kentucky, is a public secondary school serving nearly 900 students from grades 9-12. Built in the early 1960's, the school was created to consolidate the public county high schools of East End, Perryville, Forkland, Junction City, and Parksville. The school's mascot is the "Rebel".

Athletics & Extracurriculars

Boyle County boasts a very competitive and talented group of students across many extracurricular activities. They have strong rivalries with neighboring schools such as Danville High School and Lincoln County High School.


Boyle County is perhaps most commonly known for its football dynasty under coach Chuck Smith, now an assistant (linebackers coach) for the University of Kentucky. Under Smith, the Rebels compiled a 142-33 record in 13 seasons. He built Boyle County into a juggernaut in the Class AA and Class AAA ranks, winning five consecutive state championships - a state record - from 1999-2003.

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 was no obstacle for the Rebels, as they 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 perfection 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.

As a result of a KHSAA class expansion in 2007, the Rebels now compete in Class 4A (6A being the largest - by school population). Larry French is the current head coach.

Marching Band

In addition to championship football teams, Boyle County has produced state championship marching bands under the direction of Tim Blevins. The Marching Rebels were crowned the KMEA Class A State Champions in 2001, 2002, & 2003. The Marching Rebels were also state finalists in 1996, 2004 (A), 2005(AAA), 2006 (AAA) and 2007 (AAA). Only 5 other bands in the state of Kentucky have participated in the KMEA State Finals for seven years. This consistency has established the Marching Rebels as one of the more respected musical programs in the state.
