The Associated Press released its preseason poll for high school football on Tuesday.
North Central, who finished 9-2 last year and features 20 returning starters, is ranked No. 3 in Class A.
Warren Central (6A), Columbus East (5A), East Central (4A), Evansville Memorial (3A), Southridge (2A) and Pioneer (A) are the top ranked teams in each of the six classes.
The Thunderbirds have been picked by pundits as the favorite to win Class A Sectional 48.
