6. Ankeny

Last Week: 21-17 loss to No. 9 Waukee. Ankeny turned a 7-3 halftime deficit into a 17-7 lead entering the fourth quarter, but the Warriors rattled off two touchdowns of their own to upset the Hawks.

Up Next: No. 10 Fort Dodge. The only game that'll feature a pair of Super 10 teams playing one another in Week 3. We could see a lot of points here, as both Ankeny and Fort Dodge have high-powered offenses.

2. Ankeny

Last week: 48-6 win over Ankeny Centennial. For the first time since 2015, and just the second time ever, the Hawks took down their crosstown rival — and emphatically, at that. Jase Bauer threw four touchdowns and Colin Kadolph rushed for three more.

Up next: Waukee. The Warriors gave No. 4 Southeast Polk all the Rams could handle last week, but this Ankeny team is going to present different types of problems, especially once the Hawks work out the Week 1 hiccups.

Arland Bruce

Iowa school: Ankeny

Transferred from: Olathe North High School (Olathe, Kansas) 

Skinny: Bruce's move gave this topic some high-profile Hawkeye flavor, as the Iowa commit will team up with fellow commit Brody Brecht to form a dynamic receiving duo. Dowling and Valley have dominated the 4A conversation, but Ankeny has as good a chance as any to wiggle in with Bruce in the fold.

2020-08-24 - The Des Moines Register's 2020 Preseason High School Football Rankings - FOR SUBSCRIBERS

by Cody Goodwin, Des Moines Reigster

Class 4A

1. W.D.M. Valley (12-1 last year, state finalist)

2. Ankeny (7-4, state quarterfinals)

3. Dowling Catholic (12-1, state champs)

4. Southeast Polk (7-3, playoffs)

5. Bettendorf (9-3, state semifinals)

6. Waukee (7-4, state quarterfinals)

7. Ankeny Centennial (8-2, playoffs)

8. Cedar Rapids Kennedy (10-2, state semifinals)

9. Cedar Falls (10-1, state quarterfinals)

10. Urbandale (7-4, state quarterfinals)

2020-08-21 - Iowa high school football: The Des Moines Register's 2020 preseason Super 10 rankings - FOR SUBSCRIBERS

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/high-school/2020/08/24/iowa-high-school-football-2020-preseason-super-10-valley-ankeny-dowling-southeast-polk-iahsfb/3408877001/

2. Ankeny

Last year: 7-4, state quarterfinals

Why they’re in the Super 10: Another incredibly talented team with playmakers all over. Jase Bauer is the argument against Rubley as the state's best quarterback. Brody Brecht and Arland Bruce IV are a pair of Division I receivers. Colin Kadolph is back after rushing for 1,000 yards. These Hawks are going to score a lot this fall.

2020-08-21- Meet The Register's top 40 senior prospects in Iowa high school football - FOR SUBSCRIBERS

by Matthew Fain, Des Moines Register 

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/high-school/recruiting/2020/08/19/football-recruiting-ranking-top-40-senior-high-school-prospects-iowa-thomas-fidone-tj-bollers/3379867001/

5. Brody Brecht, WR, Ankeny

Height/weight: 6-4, 205

College: Iowa

Brecht has the makings of a top-tier, Power Five receiver. He's got the size and length to win battles with defensive backs. But what really stands out is Brecht's rare speed for his size. He was recently clocked at 4.45 seconds in a 40-yard dash. Brecht picked Iowa over Iowa State in one of the state's most-watched recruitments.

12. Arland Bruce IV, WR, Ankeny

Height/weight: 5-10, 195

College: Iowa

Bruce is a high-octane playmaker who can change games in a heartbeat as a receiver or out of the backfield. He just transferred to Ankeny from Olathe North in Kansas after Kansas City, Kansas schools announced they wouldn't participate in fall sports. Bruce picked Iowa over Iowa State, Tulsa and Western Illinois. His father, Arland Bruce III, played in the NFL and CFL and his cousin is NFL Hall of Famer Isaac Bruce. 

19. Jase Bauer, QB, Ankeny

Height/weight: 6-1, 205

College: Undecided

A deceptively athletic quarterback with a live arm, Bauer has become an FCS darling and could rise on some Power Five big boards with a strong senior season.

 TEXT THAT MENTIONS ANKENY....

17. Colin Kadolph, RB, Ankeny

Height/weight: 5-10, 170

College: Undecided

An under-the-radar athlete, Kadolph can broad jump 10 feet and do a standing backflip in pads. He also produced at a high level as a sophomore and has a knack for staying on his feet through contact.

2020-08-17 - Iowa Eight football: Meet the best Iowa high school football prospects for 2020

ANKENY MENTIONED

Brody Brecht

School: Ankeny

Class: 2021

Position: Receiver

Size: 6-4, 205

College: Iowa

Why he made the Iowa Eight: Brecht has the makings of a top-tier, Power Five receiver. He's got the size and length to win battles with defensive backs. But what really stands out is Brecht's speed, which is rare for his size. He was recently clocked at 4.45 seconds in a 40-yard dash he ran at his high school. Brecht picked Iowa over Iowa State in one of the state's most-watched recruitments.
