I am more of a 3A follower, however, I do enjoy the 2A level and because the Data that makes up my 3A RPI Spreadsheet, fills about 85% of the Data needed to do a 2A RPI Spreadsheet making it a fun project and only having to find 15% more Data. I am also a Big fan of Declo, North Fremont, Grangeville, St. Maries, Ririe, West Jefferson, West Side and Aberdeen.

2A RPI Rankings
After only one week, RPI is going to be all over the place. Mainly due to alot of first week bye weeks and out of state opponents have not started yet. I also do not have any District 3 teams represented due to very little knowledge of that area, but once one of those teams starts to push away from the others in that district, I will add them to the list.
1) Aberdeen 74.63
2) West Side 72.42
3) North Fremont 65.73
4) St. Maries 60.06
5) Grangeville 36.02
6) Declo 27.68
Big 2A Week 2 Games
Aberdeen @ Declo - This game will have much to show us on how each will do this season. If Aberdeen wins, Declo will be looking far from the power that they once were and Aberdeen should crack the top 5. If Declo wins, it will be a step in the right direction and put both Aberdeen and Declo just outside the top 5.
Jackson Hole (WY) @ Bear Lake - Bear Lake takes on its second out of state opponent in week two. Jackson Hole defeated 3A Teton last week and a win against them should raise a few eyebrows and could launch them into enough spotlight to be just outside the top 5 in the state.
Grangeville @ Nampa Christian - This will be Nampa's first game of the season while Grangeville tries to come back from a devastating loss to 4A Moscow last week. Its time to shine for one of the two programs. For Nampa, a win over a normally 2A Power like Grangeville in week one would be a great start to the season. Grangeville needs the win to show that week one was just a loss to a team two classifications higher and nothing more. Grangeville is still in the hunt but that could change with a loss here.
West Side @ 3A Snake River - Huge test for #1 West Side this week. Snake is an up and down program, however, with a win over another normally powerful 3A Kimberly 42-14 last week, Snake looks to be on an up year. If West Side can pull off the win, alot more media and coaches votes will be going their way to solidify their #1 ranking, a loss will send them down but not out of the Top 5.
Medical Lake (WA) @ St. Maries - Medical lake often has good team speed and depth, this with whatever they feed them over there in Washington, should prove a big test for St. Maries who has taken on a heavy loaded schedule this year as always. A win may not lift very many eyebrows because its a little known out of state program, however it will keep them in the Top 5 and may help their rank a spot or two. A loss however, will most likely send them out of the Top 5.
North Fremont @ 3A Teton - Teton is another hit or miss program, but no matter which they are, Teton will smack you in the mouth. North has their work cut out for them, but this is a winnable game. A victory for North gives them a few points to move up in the polls but a loss will send them to the bottom of the Top 5 or the door out.
