The USA South Athletic Conference's football coaches have released their 2019 preseason poll. Averett was atop the rankings and will look to capture the program's first USA South championship. Last season, Maryville earned its fourth USA South football crown and the first one claimed outright. The Scots' perfect 7-0 record in League play earned the program's second trip to the NCAA post-season in school history.
Head coaches do not vote for their own teams in the balloting.
