The Gridiron Digest released their preseason rankings Monday. The poll, voted on by the readers of the website, ranked Reitz second in Class 4A behind NorthWood. The Northern Lakes Conference champion lost in the Class 4A state championship game last year to Roncalli, which has moved up to Class 5A.
East Central, which eliminated Reitz from the postseason last fall, is ranked third.
At No. 4 are the Central Bears, conference and sectional rivals to the Panthers.
