The halfway point of the high school football season is here! As we approach the final five weeks of the regular season, here's where the teams stand.

Sioux Falls Roosevelt (11AAA) and Viborg-Hurley (9AA) received all first-place votes from the media this week. All of the other five classes have some form of a debate over who deserves that top spot. Class 11A (Tea Area) and 11B (Winner) have teams ranked below them who received at least four first-place votes.

We have also reached Week 5 of the high school football season, which is the dividing line of the halfway mark. Staying positive, we as a state have been able to pull off getting this far into the year during a pandemic. There have been some hiccups, but overall things have overall been going well.

Let's continue to all do our part to make sure the season continues all the way through the end!
