New Hampshire Football Report

Bedford tops Power Poll


The top 10 high school football teams in New Hampshire, voted by the staffs of the New Hampshire Union Leader and ESPN New Hampshire, with first-place votes/points in parentheses:

1. Bedford (5/68)  
Having a healthy Nick Leahy certainly helps.

2. (tie) Merrimack (1/56)
We’ll learn a lot about the Tomahawks on Friday night in Bedford.

2. (tie) Exeter (56)
The Blue Hawks are always dangerous when they have experience at quarterback.

4. Goffstown (1/48)
The Grizzlies are still a handful.

5. Pinkerton (47)
The Astros are young, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be good.

6. Salem (26)
Another playoff berth appears to be within reach.

7. Windham (25)
Highest-ranked team from Division II.

8. Manchester Central (16)
If Central is strong, Division I North may be the best conference in the state.

9. Winnacunnet (13)
The Warriors could be the surprise team in Division I.

10. Timberlane (10)
If Timberlane is strong, Division I South may be the best conference in the state.


Also receiving votes: John Stark (5); Portsmouth (5); Nashua North (4); Londonderry (3); Milford (2); St. Thomas (1).
