All four of Horry County’s playoff-bound football teams will enter the postseason with a state ranking.

Led by Class 4A No. 2 North Myrtle Beach — which received four first-place votes — the area will have ample opportunity to make a run or two in the coming weeks. Also included in this week’s poll are Class 4A No. 6 Myrtle Beach, Class 5A No. 8 Carolina Forest and Class 3A No. 7 Aynor.

For the Panthers, it was a bump of two spots. Aynor and North Myrtle Beach held on to their their previous ranking. Myrtle Beach fell three spots after losing to North Myrtle Beach last week.

Green Sea Floyds, which saw its season come to a close Oct. 30, was receiving votes this week.

The next and final statewide media polls will be released at the conclusion of the playoffs.
