The second installment of the New York State Sportswriters Association high school football poll is up -- Class AA and A here, Class B, C and D here -- so here's a quick rundown for our Glens Falls-area teams.
Glens Falls and Cambridge, both 3-0, remain on top of the state rankings in Classes B and D, respectively, and Greenwich (3-0) bumped up to fourth in the D's.
From the smallest enrollment up, here goes:
Class D -- Cambridge and Greenwich are ranked first and fourth, respectively, and it should make for a very exciting showdown when they meet at Cambridge on Sept. 30. In between them, Sidney and Clyde-Savannah are ranked second and third, respectively. Ticonderoga (3-0) is ranked seventh, with archrival Moriah (3-0) at No. 11. Whitehall (3-0) and Canajoharie (3-0) are ranked 18th and 19th, respectively, while Warrensburg (2-1) is an honorable mention.
Class C -- Stillwater (3-0) is ranked fourth and archrival Mechanicville (3-0) is No. 8 in the C's. Holy Trinity (2-1) is ranked 15th. Hoosick Falls and Watervliet, both 2-1, are honorable mention. Defending state champion Newark Valley remains No. 1.
Class B -- Glens Falls and No. 6 Schuylerville (3-0) are the only Section II teams ranked in Class B -- the difference in quality is that great. Cobleskill (3-0) just moved into honorable mention status with a 34-25 win over Schalmont last week.
Class A -- Queensbury (3-0) moved up to No. 14 after its 34-0 shutout of Amsterdam last week. Burnt Hills (3-0) remains fifth in the state -- defending state champ Somers is still No. 1. Averill Park (3-0) and Amsterdam (2-1) are honorable mentions.
Class AA -- Troy (3-0) remains No. 1 as the defending state champs, while Shaker (3-0) is ranked 17th. Saratoga Springs, despite its 3-0 record, is still only an honorable mention, as is 3-0 Colonie.
