FNL on ESPN NH Week 1 Power Poll

Once again this year, the members of Friday Nights on ESPN NH and the Nashua Telegraph Sports dept. vote on the top 10 football teams in the NHIAA. Here is our preseason list:

1. Pinkerton Astros (7)
2. Exeter Blue Hawks (2)
3. Nashua South Purple Panthers
4. Winnacunnet Warriors
5. Concord Crimson Tide
6. Trinity Pioneers
Bedford Bulldogs
Manchester Central Little Green
9. Portsmouth Clippers
10. Bishop Guertin Cardinals

Others Receiving Votes: Plymouth Bobcats (8), Keene Blackbirds (2), Goffstown Grizzlies (1), Souhegan Sabres (1)

It's hard to handicap the teams this early, which explains why there's a 3-way tie for the #6 spot on the list. Here is what my ballot looked like (Keene and Central just barely missed the cut on my ballot):

1) Pinkerton
2) Nashua South
3) Winnacunnet
4) Exeter
5) Bedford
6) Concord
7) Bishop Guertin
8) Trinity
9) Plymouth
10) Portsmouth

This weekend the NH Notebook will have the following games covered: Trinity @ Portsmouth, Pinkerton @ Bedford, Somersworth @ Stevens, Concord @ Manchester Central and Winnacunnet @ Bishop Guertin. We're excited to be back for our 5h year of NHIAA football coverage, good luck this season to all of the teams! Also check out nhsportspage.com, nhfootballreport.com and nh-highschoolsports.com who also provide great coverage.
