It is getting time to start thinking about All-State selections. When it comes to voting on the All-State team (AP), we nominate guys positionally for inclusion.

Anderson County has made the move from 5 to 4A. In Kentucky, the classification in which a team plays is meaningless as we have argued many times previously. Kentucky has good high school teams and bad high school teams and they are all over all 6 of its classifications. Still, Ryan Stratton is one of our top 2021 offensive centers. If you like them big, strong, and imposing, he’ll also be on your board of top players at the position.
