The Kansas high school football season kicked off last week and weather ruled the night as several games were delayed or postponed due to storms. It wasn’t until Monday night that all results were completed and we can officially close the book on Week 1.

In all, eleven ranked teams lost in the opening week, including a pair of top-ranked teams.

Class 6A

There has been some slight changes to the 6A poll this week after last week’s No. 5 Blue Valley Northwest topped then No. 4 Blue Valley, 35-21. The Huskies used a huge rushing night from Grant Stubblefield (196 yards) and Mikey Pauley (167 yards) to top the Tigers. Find out the changes and the new entry into the 6A poll below.

Class 6-Man

Kpreps plans to rank the top three teams in 6-Man football this fall as part of the Rankings press release.

Defending 6-man champion Cheylin opens the season with a 67-12 victory over Golden Plains. Sophomore Logan McCarty displayed similar explosiveness that his brother, Colton, did for the Cougars. Logan passed for 190 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 171 yards and five scores in the Cheylin victory.

Second-ranked Ashland had its season-opener against Burrton suspended until Monday, September 27th. The Blue Jays are now scheduled to play Moscow on Friday, September 24th, Burrton on Monday the 27th, and Cunningham on Friday, October 1st. That’s three games in a span of eight days.

Third-ranked Cunningham opened the season with a 58-8 win over Rolla.
