ASWA preseason football poll released

By Paul Beaudry/For ASWA

For the seventh time in the last 12 seasons, Hoover will open the high school football season as the No. 1 team in its class.

For the first time in school history, so will Mc-Adory.

The two Birmingham-area schools open the Alabama Sports Writers Asso-ciation preseason poll atop the two largest classes in a vote of the state’s high school sports writers, released last Wednesday (Aug. 7).

The Bucs, who beat Opelika 31-0 in the Class 6A championship game, were the lone unanimous pick among the poll’s six Ala-bama High School Athletic Association classes. All 34 writers participating in this year’s poll chose the Bucs over runner-up Clay-Chalkville, which lost to Hoover in last season’s North semifinal.

The Yellow Jackets, on the other hand, had the tightest margin with a 348-321 edge over Spanish Fort – which topped McAdory in last season’s Class 5A championship, 45-14. McAdory picked up 17 first-place votes to 12 for the Toros, with the rest scattered between Homewood, Benjamin Russell and Jackson.

In the remaining four AHSAA classes, state champions were tabbed to repeat their 2012 accomplishments with Class 1A Brantley, 2A Tanner, 3A Madison Academy and 4A UMS-Wright all chosen to pick up where they left off. Madison Academy and Tanner received 33 of a possible 34 first-place votes, while UMS had 28 and Brantley had 26.

In all, 10 of the 12 teams reaching an AHSAA title game in 2012 appear in the top-two in their classes to start this season.

Locally, Class 5A Southside and Class 4A Sardis received four and two votes, respectively.
