Below are the Kentucky Associated Press high school football polls as voted on by members of the media. First place votes are in brackets with team records and total poll points in parentheses.

Some observations from this week's polling:

  • Bryan Station moved up one spot to No. 8 after winning 54-14 at Meade County. It is the lone Lexington school in the top 10 of Class 6A polling. Lafayette dropped out after falling 65-46 to Scott County. It and Henry Clay each received votes (I voted Henry Clay No. 10).
  • Paintsville is No. 1 in Class A now, overtaking Beechwood after the Tigers lost at home to previously winless Covington Catholic. Mayfield re-assumed the top spot in Class 2A after DeSales was shutout 14-0 at Fern Creek.
  • New to the polls this week: Harlan (No. 10 in A), Butler County (No. 10 in 2A) and McCracken County (No. 9 in 6A).
  • Lexington Christian dropped two spots to No. 5 in Class 2A after losing 28-27 to Walton-Verona at home.
  • Lexington Catholic remained at No. 6 in Class 3A after a 41-0 shutout win at Madison Central.
  • Highlands did not receive any votes in this week's Class 5A polling. Anyone know the last time the Bluebirds went voteless?
