2012 Howard County football power rankings, Week 10
So it comes down to this. The last week of the regular season and there is plenty on the line: playoff spots, the top seed in the 3A East region, a share of the county title. Now, the casual observer may not have realized that all of that was at stake, because it all hinges on something very improbable happening: namely, River Hill losing. The Hawks have now won 19 games in a row, the last four by shut out, and have lost only six times in their last 90 (!) games overall. That includes playoff games, which is kind of mind-bottling when you think about it.
