Falcons fourth in opening state football poll


Pre season polls...the bane of all coaches on every level in every sport. The first high school state football polls are out from the Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association. At this point...these polls are about worth the paper they are written on...or the webspace they take up. Most of the 15 writers who are doing the voting can only really go on last year's performance and the reputation of the team they are choosing...and that's okay. We'll know a lot more after week one.

I know that Coach Walker sure wouldn't put the Falcons fourth in state after the jamboree. Anyway, here's a look at where they'll start in the polls this year!
