Every week I use results and formulas to rank each Class 4A school and give them a tier-grade based on their rating. If your curious about how I calculate these rankings, my explanation should me the pinned tweet on my twitter @IAFootballRanks.


#1. Dowling (2-0) - 44.6057 (A+)

W, 22-0 vs Valley

A quick word: Dowling’s back on top after pulling off an upset win over their bitter rivals Valley. Their defense controlled the game as they made 7 sacks, 11.5 tackles for loss, and 4 total turnovers all together. Their D-Line featuring Jaylen Pettus, Chase Patton, and Russell Pearson controlled the trenches and helped teammates like Max Derry, Jack Meyer, Will Hermann, and Carson Kriegshauser make some key defensive stops. Offensively QB Jake Steingreaber and WR Mack Anderson made a couple of big connections while Louis Brooks returned a punt back for a touchdown as well.


#2. Cedar Falls (2-0) - 42.5872 (A)

W, 39-0 @ Waterloo West

A quick word: The Tigers managed to shut out their neighbors, the Wahawks, on Friday. Ryan OstrichRyanOstrich5'9" | RBCedar Falls | 2021IA carved up West’s defense, as he made 186 yards off of 16 carries, that’s an average of 11.6 yards per carry.
