Ryken Echo Hawk

Pocatello sophomore Ryken Echo Hawk starts at running back for the Thunder.

Following a seven-point win over Twin Falls, Pocatello moved to 2-0 and jumped up a spot to No. 3 in the latest Idaho High School Football Media Poll.

The Thunder were one of three local teams to earn a spot in the top-five of their classification following Week 2 of action. The other two, though, stood pat in the standings.

West Side still sits atop the 2A rankings. Now on a 23-game winning streak after an impressive win at Snake River, the Pirates will face another local 3A school this week in Marsh Valley.

Also, despite its offensive outburst in a 47-13 win over Logan (UT), Highland remained in the fifth spot of the 5A rankings.

Close to making the cut were 3A Marsh Valley and North Gem of IA DII.

The Eagles placed seventh but will surely rise with a win this week against West Side. And North Gem was a spot outside the rankings despite losing to the top team in 1A DII, Carey.
