First AP polls of the high school football season

Three Twin Counties teams are ranked in the first Associated Press high school football polls of the 2010 season.

In the 3-A ranks, undefeated Southern Nash (3-0) received 44 points to land in the No. 8 spot. West Rowan holds down the No. 1 position.

In the 2-A poll, Edgecombe County can bost having two of the top three teams in the state. SouthWest Edgecombe (3-0) received two first place votes (I would hope from the Rocky Mount Telegram and the Wilson Times) and 100 total points - good enough for the No. 2 spot. Reidsville, the team that knocked the Cougars out of last year's 2-AA state playoffs, is No. 1.

Defending 2-A state champion Tarboro, which survived its trip to Death Valley last week, is in the No. 3 spot with 80 points. The Vikings did get one first place vote.

North Edgecombe was an honorable mention vote getter in the 1-A poll (No.13) after a 22-14 defeat to SouthWest Edgecombe for its first loss of the season.
