Before the playoffs begin, the Alabama Sports Writers Association has released their final poll of the 2017 season for each classification. This poll marks the 10 best teams in the eyes of the ASWA voters for each class.

Briarwood (5A) and Maplesville (1A) were the only consensus #1 teams. Piedmont (3A), Fyffe (2A) and Maplesville (1A) are the only teams that started the season first and finished there. All of the preseason top-ranked teams were the Super 7 champions from the year before. The other preseason #1 teams:

Hoover (7A) – Finished #6, made the playoffs at 7-3 as a second seed.
Ramsay (6A) – Finished unranked, but made the playoffs at 6-4 as a third seed.
Beauregard (5A) – Finished #3, made the playoffs at 8-1 as a first seed.
Handley (4A) – Finished unranked and didn’t make the playoffs at 2-8.
