Handley still No. 1 in prep power rankings

The Northern Virginia Daily Sports staff collaborated to create a football top 10 list. Each staffer voted, with 10 points being awarded to the top ranked team, nine to the No. 2 team and so on. Numbers in parenthesis indicate where each team was last week.

1. Handley (1), 2-0, 0-0 Northwestern -- Handley beat Briar Woods, 17-14, without senior RB/LB Leonard Grant, who was out with a sprained ankle. Senior RB/DB Jeremiah Wilson also suffered an ankle injury during the game, but Handley was still able to hang on for the win.

2. Clarke County (3), 3-0, 0-0 Bull Run -- The Eagles easily beat Stonewall Jackson, 46-7. They are averaging over 45 points per game.
