My Week 6 AP prep football ballot

September 26, 2011 - Troy Banning
For complete transparency purposes, I thought everyone might like to see how I voted in this week’s Associated Press prep football poll. The complete set of rankings will be released later today and published in Tuesday’s edition of The Daily Freeman-Journal.

There weren’t a lot of changes to my ballot this week … I still kept Webster City at No. 2 in the Class 3A poll and Northeast Hamilton at No. 2 in 8-man. But I do seem to be contradicting myself, and I don’t know why. My theory is that a defending state champion should be No. 1 until it gets beat, and that’s why I continue to rank Iowa City Regina over West Marshall in 2A and Armstrong-Ringsted over the field in 8-man. And yet … I cannot get myself to vote North Tama in front of LeMars Gehlen in Class A, even though North Tama is the returning champion, is unbeaten and hasn’t given up a single point this season.

Yeah, I don’t understand myself either.

Anyway, here you go.

Class 4A 1. Iowa City High 2. Cedar Falls 3. West Des Moines Valley 4. Ankeny 5. Southeast Polk 6. Davenport Assumption 7. Linn-Mar 8. Bettendorf 9. Marshalltown 10. Iowa City West

Class A 1. LeMars Gehlen 2. North Tama 3. Lisbon 4. West Hancock 5. Lone Tree 6. Postville 7. Bedford 8. Mason City Newman 9. BGM Brooklyn 10. Lynnville-Sully

Where did I get it right? Where am I completely crazy? Let me know.
