We at Kentucky Prep Gridiron are voting members of the Associated Press. As such, we will vote toward player inclusion on that team. If you wish, you may consider this team, published today, to be likely for whom we will vote, either first or second team, on the AP squad when voting commences.
This team will not “get them all.” It will omit players who rightfully should have been included here. There are way more All-State caliber players across Kentucky than there are All-State teams to make.
We can’t say for sure the below are the very best high school players from across Kentucky. We are confident they are easily in the discussion.
Remember, this team is not the all-prospect team. This team is comprised of the players we would choose to play another state’s best were that onus placed on us. Were we fielding a team of Kentuckians to play a football game against Tennessee, for instance, we would be very confident with the below players we have set forth providing us our best chance for success.
