HSFB 2023: S.C. Prep Football Media Poll (Week 1)

The trio of Lowco high school football teams who began the season ranked in the top 10 in the state in their respective classifications are still there, but Week Zero brought some shuffling of the decks.

Defending Class 3A champion Beaufort High tumbled from No. 2 to No. 7 in this week’s S.C. Prep Football Media Poll released Monday after the Eagles dropped their opener 29-10 at Cane Bay (5A RV), and it won’t get any easier with Class 5A No. 5 Fort Dorchester visiting Lady’s Island on Friday.

Hampton County dropped two spots to No. 9 in Class 2A despite a 10-0 win at Colleton County on Friday. The Hurricanes travel to Allendale-Fairfax this week.

Whale Branch was the only Lowco team to move up in the rankings, and the Warriors don’t even start their season until Thursday at North Charleston, but they still climbed from No. 10 to No. 7 in Class 1A.
