BOZICH | Trinity unanimous top pick in WDRB High School Football Top 10

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- This won’t take long. 

Rallying from a 13-point deficit in the third quarter, Trinity overtook defending Class 6A champion Male, 37-34, last Friday. Not only did the victory avenge two losses to the Bulldogs last season, it made the Shamrocks the unanimous selection as the Number One team in the WDRB High School Football Top 10 poll.

Trinity had earned all but one of the seven first-place ballots last week but the late victory over the visiting Bulldogs gave coach Bob Beatty’s team every first-place vote.

Male remained the second ranked team overall, followed by St. Xavier.

Here are the latest rankings.

1. Trinity (4-0, 7 first-place votes) — The Shamrocks’ reward for holding off a determined Male team is a visit to Pleasure Ridge Park.

2. Male (3-1) (62 points) — The Bulldogs are in line to resume their winning ways against Seneca.

3. St. Xavier (2-1, 51 points) — The Tigers host a Highlands’ team that has surprisingly lost its last three games.

4. Manual (3-0, 49 points) — After an off week, the Crimson will try to remain unbeaten at Ballard.

5. Pleasure Ridge Park (4-0, 44 points) — The Panthers have an opportunity to climb by upsetting top-ranked Trinity.

6. Christian Academy (3-1, 28 points) — Coach Stefan LeFors’s team has averaged 40 points per game while winning its last three.

7. Ballard (3-1, 17 points) — The only smudge on the Bruins’ record was a loss to Male.

8. Brownstown (Ind.) Central (4-0, 16 points) — Brownstown has scored at least 42 points in all four victories.

9. DeSales (3-1, 14 points) — The Colts rebounded from their loss to Ballard by dominating Holy Cross.

10. Fern Creek (3-1, 12 points) — A trip to DeSales is the next challenge for the Tigers.
