Wyoming High School Football Rankings: Week 4, 2018 [POLL]
There's no change among the top-ranked teams in the week four edition of the Wyopreps.com Coaches and Media Poll, but all five classes have at least one change.
Natrona, Cody, Glenrock, Big Horn, and Farson-Eden all kept their status at No. 1 in their respective classes.
The Mustangs are a unanimous #1 with this week in Class 4A, while Thunder Basin received all the #2 votes. Cheyenne East has moved back up to #3, and they get their shot at #1 Natrona Friday night at home. After its second consecutive loss, Sheridan falls another spot to #4. After back-to-back wins, Rock Springs makes its way into the 4A poll for the first time this season at #5. The Tigers edged out Laramie and Kelly Walsh for the final spot.
Defending champ Cody maintains its grip on the 3A poll this week. The Broncs will face the other 3A Broncs and new #5 Jackson on the road Friday night. Torrington holds at #2, while Evanston moves up to #3. The Red Devils get a visit from Powell, who just knocked off last week's #3 Douglas. The Bearcats dropped from the poll. Checking in at #5 is Star Valley, who moves up one spot.
Class 2A has no big surprises, as the top three remains unchanged for another week. Glenrock is #1, followed by Buffalo at #2, and Mountain View at #3. That could change this week at #2 visits #1 Friday night. The lone switch up is at the bottom of the top five, where Greybull moves up, but they have company in the form of Kemmerer. The Buffs and Rangers are tied for #4. Kemmerer is ranked for the first time since 2009.
In 1A-11 man, Big Horn remains the team to beat. The Rams were one vote shy of being a unanimous #1 ranked team. Two-time defending champ Pine Bluffs remains on their heels at #2. Cokeville has edged ahead of Upton-Sundance for #3. The Patriots are #4 and will get their shot at #1 Friday night. After last week's victory over the previous #5, the Lusk Tigers take that position this week.
The Farson-Eden Pronghorns received all the votes for #1 in the Class 1A 6-man division. After that, there seem to be a few teams in the mix from the voters' standpoint. Burlington regains #2 this week, while the H.E.M. Miners are hot on their heels at #3. After their upset of Little Snake River last week, the Meeteetse Longhorns jump into the rankings for the first time this season at #4.
