Southeast and its stellar sophomore running back, Courtney Allen, are one of three area teams ranked in the state.

Here is a look at how each team is sitting:

MANATEE: The Hurricanes climbed two spots to No. 6 in the AP's Class 7A state poll following their 63-0 win over Braden River on Friday during each team's District 10 opener. Manatee, which is also ranked nationally by Rivals (50th) and ESPNRise (34th), remained at No. 16 in the flavarsity.com Top 25. The Canes host Weston Cypress Bay this week. The Lightning (3-2) are a Class 8A team that reached last year's Class 6A state final four.

PALMETTO: At 6-0, the Tigers are the area's lone undefeated team, and they remained at No. 6 in Class 5A on the AP poll. Palmetto, unranked by flavarsity.com, is off this week, but begins a huge three-game stretch Oct. 21 against visiting Wauchula Hardee.

SOUTHEAST: Despite their 42-point loss to rival Manatee, the Seminoles are in good shape at 5-1 overall and 1-0 in Class 5A-District 10 following Friday's win over Arcadia DeSoto. Southeast, however, dropped a spot to No. 9 in the AP's Class 5A poll. The Noles have dropped off the flavarsity.com's top 25, but are on the bubble after receiving one vote. Southeast meets Riverview on Friday in a non-district game between the longtime rivals.
