Cadets top Class AA preseason polls

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Benedictine Cadets will be starting the 2017 season right where they left off in 2016: on top of the Class AA polls.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution released the publication's GHSA football preseason polls Sunday, and BC is ranked #1 in their class.

It's not surprising considering the Cadets are coming off a perfect state championship season, and are 29-1 over the past two years. But the team says they are only looking forward.

"We're definitely just thinking about this season, not looking to the past or what we did," says senior offensive lineman Austin Williams. "We're just going to take every game, every week."

"Obviously, the kids know the expectations surrounding BC football, but we try to really just focus on the details," says head coach Danny Britt.

The Cadets are the only southeastern Georgia team making an appearance in the preseason polls. Here's a look at the rest of the AJC's rankings, with area teams in italics.
