LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — The debate atop the WDRB High School football Top 10 has turned from the top spot to the runner-up position.

Male answered any questions about status over its credentials as the top team in the area by rolling into St. Matthews and stuffing Trinity last Friday.

No surprise that coach Chris Wolfe’s 4-0 team earned all seven-first place poll votes this week. Male has outscored its opponents, 155-6, without allowing a touchdown.

DeSales remains second in the voting, four points ahead of Christian Academy. Trinity, which has lost four games against strong competition, dropped to fourth.
