We encourage all of our readers to vote in the poll. The deadline to vote is Sunday at 5 p.m.
It’s simple to vote. Just rank the teams from 1 to 13.
The first-place team receives 13 points while the last-place team gets one point.
We ask that each person only votes once in the weekly poll. If we receive any ballots that are obviously biased, such as ranking one of the top teams at the bottom of the poll, that poll will not be taken into consideration.
The points will be tallied up after we receive the votes and the polls will be released each Wednesday in the Heavener Ledger and on Thursday on heavenerledger.com.
