DeMatha Head Football Coach Elijah Brooks has seen a litany of success in his tenure running the Stags football program — sending players to the best colleges in the country and teaching young men to be better football players and people — but a Washington Area Catholic Conference championship proved elusive.
Words can’t express how it feels to be called CHAMPIONS! I am so proud of my players and coaches for all the hard work they put in to prepare for this game. Our focus was outstanding all week and we executed very well all game. The players knew there was no way they could let the opportunity to bring home the title pass them by.
Now that the WCAC trophy is back where it belongs in Hyattsville, Brooks will focus on helping players select colleges. Expect much more news on recruiting as we enter the offseason, as well as player and coach honors as they come in.
Throughout the season, Brooks has selected a few players that stood out in a weekly feature called Players of the Game. In the WCAC title game, Brooks said the entire team deserved the honor, and who could argue with that. Congrats to all the players and coaches for a great season and an even better title game!
