It’s Unanimous, Daniel Hand is #1!

After knocking off top ranked Xavier 40-20 last Friday night, The (5-0) Daniel Hand Tiger Football Team took over the number one spot on all three of the major high school football polls in Connecticut.

Ansonia and Staples were the only other teams to receive first place votes, but they were not that close. Check out the attached pdf file for a look at how the top five teams from last week all changed spots:

After Friday's win Coach Filippone told the team that they would now get to carry the (#1) bullseye on their backs.  Well they won't have to wait long for their first big test, when (5-0) #8 West Haven comes to the Surf Club this Friday at 7pm.  But that’s life in the SCC.  

Hand is also the #1 ranked team in the CIAC Class L playoff standings.
