Media members across South Dakota have joined together to create one single, complete media poll. Here are the preseason football rankings.

The South Dakota Prep Media Poll will be released each Monday afternoon during the high school football season. Voters are spread across the entire state, and are made up of those in radio, television, and print. This includes us at ESPN 99.1.
