The Final WyoPreps Football Rankings of the 2022 Season
The last football rankings of the season changed three of the five classifications in the WyoPreps Coaches and Media Football Poll.
The Cody Broncs and Little Snake River Rattlers went wire-to-wire as top-ranked teams.
Sheridan was also at No. 1 in the preseason poll, but they didn’t keep that ranking all season. Both Lovell and Pine Bluffs began the year at No. 2 and quickly rose to No. 1, where they stayed since the Week 2 poll.
The Jackson Broncs returned to No. 5 in the 3A rankings. They replaced Lander, who fell from the top five. Cody got all but one first-place vote, which continued a trend back to the preseason poll. The Broncs are ahead of Star Valley, who was ranked second all season. Douglas and Buffalo held their position at third and fourth.
In Class 1A 9-man, the Rocky Mountain Grizzlies returned to the poll for the first time since Week 2. They jumped into the third spot. Pine Bluffs and Shoshoni were unanimous choices for first and second in the 9-man division. Big Piney held in fourth, and Wind River dropped to fifth.
For the first time in a few weeks, there was one difference in the Class 1A 6-man poll. The top four didn’t move. Little Snake River was a unanimous pick for No. 1 with all 15 first-place votes. Dubois earned all 15 votes for the second position. Burlington and Encampment were still third and fourth. Farson-Eden rounded out the top five at No. 5. The Pronghorns returned to the poll for the first time since Week 2.
Classes 4A and 2A were the two classes that did not change.
The 4A rankings stayed the same for the fourth straight week. Sheridan received 18 of the 19 first-place votes for the top spot. Cheyenne East held second. Natrona County picked up one first-place vote and was third. Cheyenne Central and Thunder Basin remained fourth and fifth, respectively.
Class 2A featured Lovell on top with 15 of the 18 first-place votes. The Bulldogs are followed by Big Horn, who garnered the other three first-place votes. Lyman, Tongue River, and Cokeville completed the top five.
