Linebacker Kyle Doran (right) and the Glendale Falcons are now the No. 5-ranked Class 5 football team in Missouri after beating Kickapoo 40-20 and improving to 5-0.

The Glendale Falcons are flying upward, way upward in the state high school football rankings.

A 40-20 win over Class 6 Kickapoo sent Glendale (5-0) to the No. 5 spot in the Class 5 Missouri Media Rankings. The Falcons are now the top-rated southwest Missouri Class 5 team, bumping Nixa (5-0) to No. 6.

Meanwhile, Kickapoo (4-1) slips four spots to the No. 8 position in Class 6.

The Class 2 rankings feature a logjam of teams of Springfield area interest. Mountain View-Liberty (No. 2), Mountain Grove (No. 4) and Fair Grove (No. 8) all hold steady in the rankings for another consecutive week. All three teams are 5-0.
