Sun-Gazette power rankings: Week 2
1. Montoursville (1-0): The defense outscored five area teams last week, producing two touchdowns.
2. Jersey Shore (1-0): In addition to topping 100 yards rushing, Cam Allison also intercepted a pass, kicked a field goal and connected on two extra points.
3. Williamsport (1-0): Lots of sharing on this team. Five Millionaires scored touchdowns against Nanticoke.
4. Loyalsock (0-0): Lancer graduate Bam Brima made a tackle in Pitt’s 55-0 win last Saturday.
5. Muncy (1-0): Alex Rosario set the tone last week, dropping a ball-carrier for a loss on the first play against this stout defense.
6. Canton (1-0): Anyone who doubts the lessons sports teach and the memories they create should have to watch a replay of last week’s Old Shoe Game to see how wrong they are.
7. North Penn-Mansfield (0-0): Brima and Garrett Bickhart are now teammates and the former Panther wide receiver caught two passes in that Pitt victory.
8. Central Mountain (1-0): Looking for a team that may be the area’s most improved this season? Mill Hall might just be that place.
9. Montgomery (1-0): While the skill players are exciting, do not sleep on an experienced and strong Red Raider offensive line eager for revenge tonight.
10. Wellsboro (1-0): Tonight will be the third time in four games Wellsboro plays North Penn-Mansfield. Welcome to the craziness 2020 has produced.
11. South Williamsport (0-0): Think the Mounties are excited to play their opener next week? Me, too.
12. Lewisburg (0-1): Expect this offense to start flourishing as players get accustomed to running the triple option.
13. Hughesville (0-1): If the offense catches up to the progress the defense showed last week, Hughesville could be on its way up.
14. Warrior Run (0-1): Keep an eye on senior Hunter Rovenolt. He’s not the biggest player, but he’s versatile, fast and makes things happen.
15. Milton (0-1): After not playing last year, Jason Valladares already has re-established himself as the team’s workhorse.
16. Cowanesque Valley (0-1): No area player collected more tackles than Michael Sipps (16) last week.
17. Bucktail (0-1): The Bucks dressed just 18 players last week, but played well in the second half, displaying the character that has long shaped its program.
