Tanner makes a move in prep poll

— Tanner took advantage of a Washington County loss last week to Sweet Water and moved into the No. 2 slot in Class 2A in this week’s ASWA prep football poll. The Rattlers narrowly missed a chance to retake the No. 1 spot where they began the season.

The new No. 1 team, Mobile Christian, received 18 first-place votes to Tanner’s 10. No. 3 Lanett received the other first-place vote in 2A.

Class 6A Hoover joined Class 3A Madison Academy as the poll’s unanimous No. 1 teams, as both earned all 31 first-place votes from this week’s panel.

Tanner could have a chance to retake that No.1 spot with a win over Hatton Friday as Mobile Christian hosts No. 6 Washington County. The other newly minted No.1 team, UMS-Wright plays 4A No. 6 Andalusia. The third pairing is Class 1A No. 1 Pickens County playing at No. 5 Marion County.

Other matchups involving ranked teams include Class 6A No. 4 Vestavia Hills hosting No. 5 Shades Valley and No. 2 Smiths Station at No. 7 Opelika; Class 3A No. 2 Piedmont hosting No. 7 Saks, and No. 5 Straughn at No. 3 T.R. Miller; Class 1A No. 4 Addison at No. 6 Falkville, and AISA No. 5 Bessemer Academy at No. 6 Fort Dale Academy.
