FOOTBALL: Two County Teams In Preseason High School Football Poll

The inaugural 2016 preseason NBC12/RVA Sports Network Big 12 High School Football Poll was released Tuesday night, and two county teams made the cut: one a poll mainstay, the other a team hoping to continue its renaissance, proving they are not a one-year wonder.

The Hanover Hawks begin the season ranked at #8. Hanover has made the playoffs every year since 2006 and open the season at home Friday September 2nd hosting #3 Dinwiddie on our RVA Sports Network Game of The Week, to be heard on WHAN Radio, 102.9 FM and 1430 AM.

The Lee-Davis Confederates start the season ranked 12th overall. After a big 9-3 season, Lee-Davis hopes to use a strong running attack led by Nathan Evans and returning offensive lineman back to the postseason.
