    Re: IowaPrepFanatic.com HS Rankings

    So, what has changed with Valley in the past 8 months to warrant their ranking after a dismal season (by their standards) last year? Have they been able to step up recruiting?

    We all know that preseason rankings don't mean a heck of a lot, especially in high school sports.

    I will say this though. We've put together an awesome team of journalists to rank these programs. Our guys are spread out all over the state and I have a lot of faith in their abilities.

    FM at #5 in 8-man? Odd to see them doing so well.

    Fort Dodge AND Mason City in the top 10? What is going on? Both those teams were abysmal when I was in HS.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Yeah, that wont last past week 1.

    Also, Newton, Harlan and Heelen will be a fun group to watch compete in 3A.

    Fort Dodge will be there all year long....RB's are studs and got a transer in that may play QB. Valley is the biggest hurdle to FD this season. MC could be up and down, but have a really soft schedule to start the year.

    I dont think its the players, its the lack of solid coaching. Heck, when we played them they had Kurtis Taylor playing both ways and we destroyed them for his two years. Not saying they wont be a decent team, but coaching goes a loong ways.

    FM is my pick to win the 8-man state title. Remember that when November comes around.

    #1 Dowling vs. #2 Valley should be a heck of a way to start of the year. While I do think Valley may be a little overrated, they are certainly going to be better than last years 5-5 team, and this is always a hard fought rivalry game.

    Different coach now in charge, and imo a better one.

    No dis respect Chris, but I just don't see any possible way that FM does well in 8 man this year even though they are moving down from A. I played against them last year as a member of the Treynor Cardinals. I know they were a young team with talented sophomores playing key positions(they seemed like head cases). I just don't think they have enough quality, even in 8 man.

    That being said. Can't wait for Treynor to kick off your class 1a #7 ikm manning on august 27!
