To preview the 2013 high school football season, The Tampa Tribune is counting down the top 10 teams in Hillsborough County. These preseason rankings were voted on by Tribune writers Nick Williams and Scott Purks, high school sports editor Doug Jacobs and correspondents Mike Camunas and Jarrett Guthrie.

SEFFNER — Darryl Richardson is at San Diego State. Leon McQuay III is at Southern California, and Alvin Bailey is at the University of Florida.

Armwood’s top three weapons from the 2012 season, which ended in the region finals, have graduated. Yet, as they always do, the Hawks will reload and are the favorites to win the county’s toughest district, which includes Hillsborough, Jefferson and Robinson.

Defense, as in years past, will be Armwood’s calling card, led by four-star Vanderbilt commit Kyle Gibson at safety and junior defensive lineman Byron Cowart, one of the top junior prospects in the nation. Greg Newton, a senior, and Caylan Holloway, a junior, will share the load in the backfield, while junior Noah Johnson will take over at quarterback.

KICKOFF CLASSIC: Aug. 23 vs. Cooper City

SEASON OPENER: Aug. 30 at Durant
