Pahokee joins Dwyer, Glades Day in state AP poll 

By Anthony Chiang

The latest Associated Press high school football poll was released Monday and Pahokee’s victory over American Heritage impressed the state’s newspaper writers.

The Blue Devils cracked the top five in the Class 3A poll after beating the Stallions on Friday, as Pahokee is ranked No. 5. On the other end, American Heritage fell out of the rankings due to the loss. However, Fort Pierce Central, Dwyer and Glades Day are still ranked in their respective class polls.

Park Vista continued to receive votes in the Class 8A poll and Glades Central started to receive votes in the Class 4A poll this week.
