Ten teams from the Cedar Valley and northeast Iowa are featured in the latest Iowa high school football poll released by the Associated Press on Monday (Sept. 4, 2017).

Following a pair of decisive victories to start the season, defending state champion Don Bosco (2-0) has taken over the top spot in the eight-player poll. The Dons jumped one spot from No. 2 to No. 1 after an 86-36 win at Iowa Valley Friday night and a 60-26 home victory over Midland on Aug. 25. Turkey Valley also climbed one spot, moving from No. 9 to No. 8, while AGWSR debuted at No. 10.

The Cougars are one of four newcomers to the poll from the area. The others are: Cedar Falls (Class-4A, No. 8), Waverly-Shell Rock (Class-3A, No. 10) and Wapsie Valley (Class-A, No 6), which upset Class-1A No. 3 Denver 27-6 Friday night. The Cyclones (1-1) fell to No. 10 in the 1A survey following the loss.

Two-time defending state champion Gladbrook-Reinbeck (Class-A) and Waukon (Class-2A) are both ranked No. 2 for a second-straight week, while Aplington-Parkersburg (3-0) jumped five spots to No. 3 in the 2A survey. Gladbrook-Reinbeck (2-0) has the state's longest-active winning streak, a mark that reached 24-straight games when the Rebels defeated Dike-New Hartford, 19-7, in Gladbrook on Friday.
