This week’s Associated Press weekly top-ten polls for all six classifications. @Minguabeefjerky, @PrepSpin, @KyHighFootball, @1776Bank

It is our privilege to get to vote in the Associated Press’s weekly top ten poll for Kentucky high school football. As you subscribers have given us this opportunity, we make it a point to exercise our vote every week.

We give our vote considerable study and thought and kind of kick it around the magazine in a joint, collaborative effort. This week, we were one of only 14-members voting from around the commonwealth. We pledge for so long as you subscribe to us and pay us your hard-earned money to represent you, we will continue to subscribe to the Associated Press and do our part by voting in this poll and in nominating and voting for the post-season All-State team.

Here is this week’s poll. The number in parenthesis represents how many of the 14-voters voted the team number one in its classification.
