As usual, the opponents of the Effingham Hearts during the football season are highly rated in the state polls.

Breese Mater Dei, the Hearts' season-opening foe, is rated #6 this week in the Class 4A poll.

Three other opponents are mentioned in the Class 5A poll.  Charleston is rated #6 and Centralia is ranked #8.  Mahomet-Seymour, who will be the regular season ending opponent, got votes but fell just outside the Top 10 in the 5A poll.

A couple of area teams are also making noise in the polls.  Casey-Westfield is second rated this week in the Class 2A poll, and Vandalia got votes in the 3A poll but fell outside the Top 10.
