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).
  • No changes in No. 1 teams this week. Belfry maintains a strong lead over Boyle County, despite the latter holding a firm advantage in the Cantrall Ratings. Same goes for South Warren over Johnson Central, although those two are much closer in the computer metric.
  • Lafayette returns to the Class 6A poll at No. 10 after a week's absence. It travels to Bryan Station, ranked eighth, this week.
  • Lots of newcomers to the polls this week: Fairview (No. 10 in Class A), Shelby Valley (No. 9 in 2A), Lloyd Memorial (No. 10 in 2A), Adair County (No. 10 in 3A), Wayne County (No. 10 in 4A), Greenwood (No. 10 in 5A)
