2021 pre-season 3A football coaches poll

OSAAtoday presents its 2021 statewide pre-season 3A football poll. Thanks to all the coaches who took the time and had the expertise to contribute their opinions to this endeavor.

The pre-season 6A poll was released on Monday. The 5A and 4A polls were released yesterday. OSAAtoday will publish the pre-season 2A poll later today and the pre-season 1A (8-man) and 1A (6-man) polls on Thursday.

Look for the 3A football poll every Wednesday during the fall season.

Please note: these polls are for generating interest and discussion only and have no impact on the OSAA’s RPI and Colley ratings that form the basis of the OSAA’s rankings for playoff purposes.
