Not a ton has changed locally in the latest version of the Associated Press high school football poll, which was released Tuesday afternoon.

Monticello, Unity and Bismarck-Henning/Rossville-Alvin retained spots in their respective top 10s, though the Blue Devils dropped slightly despite not playing in Week 3.

Paxton-Buckley-Loda did slip out of its top 10 after a last-play loss to Bloomington Central Catholic, but the Panthers still are receiving votes alongside Mahomet-Seymour and Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley.

Below are the complete results of this week's voting, which included input from News-Gazette preps coordinator Colin Likas.
