Depending on the poll, one or both of the teams squaring off Friday in Ackley are ranked. One has Turkey Valley ranked fifth and left AGWSR off. Another has the Cougars rated fifth and Trojans 10th.
Whatever the case may be, the preseason rankings mean nothing in the big picture. AGWSR head coach James Koop knows what he has. But more, he knows what TV has. He’s hoping it’s a good game, unlike last years that was called at the half due to weather in Jackson Junction as the hosts were flooding the Cougars 38-13.
