Armwood moves up on National Polls!

Posted Thursday, September 18, 2008 by Coach Taylor
Armwood's 9-2 defensive triumph over highly regarded Plant High School and
top rated QB Aaron Murray on national television and their 51-10 offensive
outburst against north Tampa power Wharton High School have pushed Armwood
further up the national polls.   As a side note, Aaron Murray who broke the
state record for touchdown passes in a season this past year was once again
held without a touchdown pass vs. our Hawks on ESPNU.  That's 12 quarters
now without a touchdown pass by the South Tampa record breaker against the
toughest defense in the state.   These impressive wins have had a huge
positive impact for our Hawks in the normally static national poll.  

Armwood is now:
  • 5th in the Cal Preps National Power Rankings
  • 10th in the CNN Sports Illustrated Poll
  • 8th in the ESPN Rise Poll
  • 7th in the Prepnation Poll
  • 6th in the USA Today Poll
  • 2nd in the Rivals National Poll
  • 4th in the Cal Preps Compilation Poll that takes all these national polls

This compilation poll is particularly flattering since it shows the national
consensus of respect that exists for our Hawks outside the Tampa area. 

In addition our Hawks are:

Listed in the Sporting News Top 25 prep football programs to watch in the
United States
  • #2 in the Beef O-Brady's all classes state football poll
  • #1 in the Florida Football Magazine all classes state football rankings
  • #1 in the AP Florida Sports Writers Association class 4-A football poll
  • #1 in the Tampa Tribune's Top 10 Hillsborough Teams
  • #1 in the St. Pete Times Fabulous Fifty teams in the Tampa Bay area
  • #1 in the Brighthouse Catch 47 top 20 teams in the Bay area.  

Next up for our Hawks is neighborhood rival Brandon High School who has
shown a stifling defense this season shutting both of their opponents down
to virtually no yard on offense.  This Friday in Brandon will be quite the
test for our Hawks and it is one of those rivalries where once can throw out
the records, so please come out and be the twelfth man that makes such a
difference for our players!
