Happy New Year From DeMatha Football

Screen shot 2013-11-19 at 10.57.07 AM2013 was a banner year for DeMatha Football, an undefeated regular season in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference capped by a WCAC championship. A number of seniors heading off to play college football at some of the best schools (Princeton, William & Mary) and football programs (Florida State, Wisconsin).

But what’s most important is our players kept perspective and, beyond great play on the field, helped out in their community. The Washington Post wrote a great story about senior Stags Taiwan Deal and Mark Allen chipping in at the Washington View apartment complex in D.C.

Screen shot 2013-12-31 at 12.10.12 PMDeMatha running backs coach Martin Gibson brought the young men to give out gifts and spread holiday cheer, and all were quite thankful for the opportunity.

“They loved it,” Gibson said. “At first, I’m not sure they really knew exactly what they were doing, but by the end, I think it really hit home for them.”

2013 has been great. Let’s make 2014 even better!! Happy New Year to all!!
