Herndon and South Lakes high schools meet Friday in the "Baron Cameron Bowl" - the annual interconference battle for neighborhood bragging rights.
The schools play in different conferences - South Lakes, former Liberty now VHSL Conference 6; Herndon, former Concorde, now Conference 5 - but many of the players grew up playing youth sports together, and, of course, a good portion of Herndon High students live in Reston.
Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. at South Lakes.
Herndon has the historical advantage, but South Lakes is the current holder of the Baron Cameron Bowl trophy. The Seahawks defeated the Hornets 21-7 at Herndon in 2012.
That victory was only the Seahawks' second win over the Hornets since 2002.
South Lakes is 1-1. After a season-opening 45-7 loss to Westfield at home, the Seahawks defeated Washington-Lee 14-8 on the road last week.
Herndon is 0-2. The Hornets lost close games to Mount Vernon 19-17 and West Springfield 23-21 to start the season.
