The Callaway Cavaliers will jump into a new season looking up at just one team in the Associated Press Class AAA poll.


Washington County, which lost to Buford in the state-championship game last season, is the consensus top pick in the Class AAA poll, which was voted on by sports writers across the state.


Washington County, which beat Callaway in the second round of the 2012 playoffs, received all of the first-place votes.


Callaway, coming off a 12-2 season that ended with a 24-14 loss to Buford in the state semifinals, is ranked second, and traditional state power Calhoun is third.


Blessed Trinity is ranked fourth, and Ringgold is fifth.


Rounding out the top 10 are Jefferson County, Peach County, Cedar Grove, Central-Carroll and Cook County.


Callaway and Central-Carroll are both in Region 5-AAA.


Callaway finished the 2013 season ranked third after the best season in school history.


Callaway was the only team to hold a halftime lead against Buford, and the 10-point margin of victory was the Wolves’ smallest during the season.


Buford, after winning the Class AAA title a year ago, has moved up to Class AAAA this year, and it is ranked first after receiving all but two first-place votes.


The other first-place votes went to Griffin, which won the Class AAAA title last season.


In third place is Sandy Creek, which has been one of the state’s elite programs over the past several years, and Carrollton is ranked fourth.


Troup, Carrollton and Sandy Creek will all be in Region 5-AAAA this season.


McEachern is atop the Class AAAAAA rankings, and Creekside is ranked first in Class AAAAA.


Lovett is the top team in Class AA, and Heard County is ranked fifth.


Aquinas is the number one team in Class A.
