With two weeks left in the regular season, prep football has had a number of "sure" things, or so I think, as well as a number of surprises.
In 11AA, Sioux Falls Washington and Brandon Valley are unbeaten at 7-0 and have clinched first round byes. Those two teams may be headed for a collision in the 11AA finals at the DakotaDome. Both teams feature explosive offenses and shutdown defenses. If that title tilt happens the QB-WR combos of BV's Marso-VandeBerg and SFW's Hander-Gerry will face off in prime-time matchup. Could be quite a show.
Two-time defending champion Dell Rapids continues to be the team to beat in 11A, which is the only class without an unbeaten team. The Quarriers have not lost to an 11A team since the final game of the 2009 season (Milbank). Dell Rapids has the highest power point total at 55.167 while Harrisburg sits 6-1 and has the second best power point total at 52.186. It is worth noting that the Tigers have yet to lose to a South Dakota team.
In 11B, the biggest surprise is Terry Dosch's fourth-ranked Aberdeen Roncalli squad (7-0) which is one of three unbeaten teams along with #1 Flandreau (6-0) and #3 Winner (7-0). After an early season scare against Groton Area, the Cavaliers have picked up steam and are definitely one of the teams to watch in this class. Flandreau averages over 300 yards rushing a game and will use their pound and ground attack as they seek a second title in three seasons. While #2 Tri-Valley (5-1) lost a 24-22 decision to Flandreau a few weeks ago, the Mustangs have the top power point total at 57.33 with Winner second at 56.57. Tri-Valley has defeated a pair of 11A ranked teams including #1 Dell Rapids (28-21) and #4 Tea Area (34-27). Winner has a deep and talented team and will make a play for a fifth championship and a 12th appearance in the state title game.
Perhaps the state's most competitive class is 9AA where four teams remain unbeaten and several others will be in the hunt for the crown. The unbeatens include #1 Kimball/White Lake at 7-0 along with #3 Deubrook Area (6-0) , #5 Leola Frederick (6-0) and unranked White River (7-0). K/WL has the top power point total of 57.714. Dale Taylor's Kimball/White Lake team is coming off a win over defending champion Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan, and appear to be the best team in the class. They feature a veteran team with a solid backfield led by Jacob Kirsch and Trevor Reinesch. Jeff Van Leur's Seahawks may be 4-2 but have only close losses to K/WL and 9A @1 Canistota and won't give up their crown without a fight. Keep your eye on teams like White River, Potter County (5-1) and Gregory (5-1), which has one of the state's most dynamic quarterbacks in Jaden Bartling, who has both over 800 yards rushing and throwing. Arlington has rebounded nicely from a 4-4 season and while unranked will be a team looking for a third title to add to its trophy case.
In 9A six teams are unbeaten led by defending champion Canistota (6-0). #2 Warner (6-0), #3 Hamlin (6-0) #5 Herreid-Selby Area (6-0) and unranked Arlington (6-0) and Faith (6-0) all head into Friday's action without a loss. Herreid/Selby Area has the top power point ranking of 60.167. Hamlin has to be the surprise of the group. After not making the playoffs a year ago (4-4), they now have a seven-game winning streak dating back to the season finale of 2011.
In 9B, Harding County has not lost and appears to be the team to beat with the highest power point total of 59.833. However, be aware of Viborg-Hurley (5-1), which only has a loss to Canistota. Colome (5-1) and Hitchcock-Tulare (5-2) are team gaining momentum as the playoffs near.
Rushing Up a Storm
As the weather turns brisk and winds begin to rage, Friday nights on the gridiron are often dominated by rushing attacks. And, as a result, we are seeing some standout performances. This past week was a case in point when three players went over the 300-yard mark and at least six others had 200 yards or more. The 300-yard rushers included Tyler Trask of Wall with 25 carries for 341 yards and three TDs, Blake Reynolds of Parker with 24 carries for 315 yards and three TDs and Lane Weber of Arlington with 330 yards and four TDs. The 200-yard rushers included Alec Barta of Gayville-Volin, 260; David Kocer of Wagner, 257; Andrew Grassl of Marion, 221; Roy Lumpkin of Wolsey-Wessington, 221; and both Jaden Bartling of Gregory and Rush Milne of Madison, with 205 yards. In addition, Brandon Beutler of Eureka/Bowdle had 194 yards while Kasey Kurtz of Groton Area had 181 and Jaden Dennison of Lake Preston had 180 as well as 44 carries.
Eight Quarterbacks over 1K for the Year
Just seven games into the season, at least seven quarterbacks have already reached the 1,000 mark in passing yards. They include Chase Marso of Brandon Valley, who has the top yardage mark of 1,544 with Austin Hulscher of Wilmot next at 1,529. Also at the 1K mark is Brock Zeller of Elk Point/Jefferson, 1,163; Jon Hander of Washington, 1,161, Bo Fries of Langford Area with 1,080, Kyler Johnson of Baltic with 1,051 yards, Jess Feist of Harding County with 1,042 and Andrew McKuen of Harrisburg with 1,009. There may be others over 1,000 but the information is not available.
Huber, Milne Hit Milestone Marks; Knutson Getting Close to 2,500 Yards
Anthony Huber of Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan had 137 rushing yards on Friday against Kimball/White Lake and went over the 3,000 yard mark for his career. Huber has 3,107 for his career. With 205 yards rushing against Lennox, Rush Milne of Madison cracked the 1,000 mark. In addition, Deubrook Area running back Ryan Knutson, who has 1,192 yards this season through six games is nearing 2,500 career yards. Knutson, who has five games over 100 yards, including three games over 200 yards and one over 300, has 2,480 yards and will likely go past the 2,500 mark on Friday when the Dolphins play DeSmet/Iroquois.
Canistota Goes for #31
With a 42-13 win over Chester Area on the road, 9A Canistota extended its winning streak to 30 games, which moved Lenny Schroeder's Hawks into a tie for third place all-time with Arlington (2004-06). Next on the schedule will be Marion as Canistota looks to tie White River (1976-79) for second all-time.

The game was 0-0 at the end of regulation. Eugene Martin had 24 carries for 81 yards and a TD. Barber Martin had 18 tackles and Andrew 15 for DeSmet/Iroquois.
