No Big Changes in the Latest WyoPreps Coaches and Media Football Poll
Four of the five classes had teams move around in the top five of the new WyoPreps Coaches and Media Football Poll.
The only classification that remains the same is Class 1A-6 Man. Also, no new teams enter this week’s rankings.
In the 6-man division, Little Snake River is a unanimous choice for No. 1. The Rattlers received all 13 first-place votes. They are followed by Encampment, Meeteetse, Hulett, and Dubois for another week. The Rams and Red Devils will play each other at a neutral site to end the regular season, and then, in Hulett in the first round of the playoffs.
The next three classes all had teams flip spots at the bottom of the poll.
In 9-man, Pine Bluffs earned 14 of the 16 first-place votes. Shoshoni and Rocky Mountain hold in second and third. Lusk moves up one to fourth, which pushes Wind River down to No. 5.
In 2A, the top three remain unchanged. Lyman is on top with 15 of the 18 votes for first. Torrington got the other three votes for No. 1, and the Trailblazers hold in second. Lovell stays third. Despite a loss last week, Wheatland climbs back up to fourth. Cokeville’s loss drops them to fifth.
The Broncs remain 1-2 in Class 3A. Cody stays at the top for the sixth straight poll. They received 14 of the 17 first-place votes. Jackson earned the other three. Star Valley is an overwhelming choice for third. A couple more third-place votes push Douglas up to fourth and move Powell down to No. 5.
The biggest change, which wasn’t that big, was in 4A, where three teams are impacted by the voting. Rock Springs stays atop the ranking with 14 first-place votes. The Tigers are followed by Sheridan in second. Cheyenne East and Natrona County both move up one position in the poll after the Mustangs beat Thunder Basin in Gillette last Friday night. That loss drops the Bolts two spots to fifth.
