ASWA PREP FOOTBALL POLL: Cullman falls out of rankings following loss, Addison moves up to No. 7

Heading into the final week of the regular season, some 19 teams carry an unblemished record into their final game.

Five of the 19 are ranked No. 1 in their respective classes in this week’s Alabama Sports Writers Association high school football poll –  Class 6A Hoover, 5A Spanish Fort, 3A Madison Academy, 1A Pickens County and the AISA’s Edgewood Academy.

Madison Academy is the lone undefeated No. 1 team and one of five 9-0 schools to face a top-10 opponent this week as the Mustangs will play at 4A No. 7 Central-Clay County. The other four unbeaten are 5A No. 3 Muscle Shoals at 6A No. 6 Bob Jones, 2A No. 5 Luverne at 5A No. 8 Saraland, 3A No. 2 T.R. Miller at 2A No. 6 Sweet Water and AISA No. 2 Monroe Academy hosting No. 6 Tuscaloosa Academy.

One of the 19 unbeaten teams will finish the regular season that way as 2A No. 2 Lanett does not play this week; the team it’s chasing, No. 1 Tanner, is also off. Madison Academy is not the only No. 1 team to play a ranked foe as 4A UMS-Wright will host 5A No. 9 St. Paul’s.

Other games involving ranked teams include 5A No. 4 Homewood at No. 5 Benjamin Russell, AISA No. 2 Restoration Academy at No. 9 Kingwood  Christian and No. 8 Patrician Academy at No. 5 Bessemer Academy.

As far as The Times’ coverage area is concerned, Cullman dropped out of the 5A rankings following a 47-7 loss to No. 3 Muscle Shoals. Addison took advantage of an off week to climb up to No. 7 in the 1A poll, while 3A Hanceville received 11 points from voters.
