The Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr. High School Puma varsity football team capped a perfect (14-0) season by defeating Quince Orchard 12-7 in the State 4A Championship. “The players told me they were never going to let me down,” said Coach DaLawn Parrish. “Our preparation and hard work earned us the championship. A win like this brings the community and school together, so it’s a special time.”
Student athletes on the football team have a GPA of 3.5 or better and want to be known as more than just athletes. “This a special group of players,” said Carletta Marrow, Principal “They obviously perform on the football field, but they also perform in the classroom. Our quarterback has a 4.0 GPA – I can’t say enough good things about these young men.”
