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:

  • Belfry dropped a spot to No. 2 in Class 3A after falling at Cabell Midland, the top-ranked team in the state of West Virginia. The Pirates had been No. 1 all season ahead of Boyle County, this week's new No. 1.
  • Lafayette moved up at spot to No. 9 after beating Bryan Station 19-12 on Friday. The Defenders fell from No. 8 to No. 10.
  • Oddly Lexington Catholic moved down a spot, from No. 8 to No. 9, despite not playing on Friday. Same thing happened to Lexington Christian, who also moved down from No. 8 to No. 9 in a bye week.
  • Only one newcomer this week. That's Henry County, debuting at No. 10 in Class 3A.
