Several teams from the Cedar Valley and northeast Iowa are featured in the second high school football rankings of the season released by the Associated Press on Monday (Sept. 3, 2018).

In all, 11 area squads are rated in the latest survey. Two-time defending eight-player state champion Don Bosco and Hudson, which finished second in Class-A a year ago, are ranked No. 1 in their respective classes for the second week in a row. Don Bosco owns the state's longest-active winning streak at 22 games.

Turkey Valley (No. 8) jumped into the eight-player top-10 this week, while East Buchanan (No. 5) and Wapsie Valley (No. 7) each jumped to spots in the Class-A survey.

Other rated teams from the Cedar Valley and northeast Iowa include: Dike-New Hartford (No. 3, Class-1A), La Porte City Union (No. 3, Class-2A), Waukon (No. 7, Class-2A), West Delaware (No. 6, Class-3A), Waverly-Shell Rock (No. 7, Class-3A), and Cedar Falls (No. 4, Class-4A).

Four area teams received votes, but just missed being ranked among the top 10 in the six-class poll.
