 HARLAN (Aug. 28) -- No matter which set of preseason football rankings you follow, Friday’s Week 1 non-district clash between the Harlan Community Cyclones and Grinnell Tigers is expected to be a good one in Class 3A. HCHS is listed third in the first Radio Iowa Poll of the year and sixth by the...
