Middletown: Three consecutive state titles; appeared in last four. Two straight undefeated season; 36 game winning streak. 41- 1 in the last three years. And in my most honest opinion of actually seeing both teams unlike most here, Middletown would have smashed mouth beaten Northwest last year. In fact, Middletown would have beaten all the classification champions last year including Franklin and the Indians they walked into the stadium with.. And you opine Northwest should be the only team in the top five which would leave Gilman, McDonough, ECA, and St. Pauls!!!!
Be honest and tell me if you even show Patuxent play last season? How about Fort Hill whose entire city lives and breathes football? What about Suitland? Huntingtown? You see anyone other than your own? There is a lot of good football out there beyond your fence.
Yes I have and I've been to Fort Hill twice, and attended games at Roosevelt, Suitland, Gywnn Park, McDonough (PG), Seneca Valley, Sherwood, QO, Middletown, many of Coach Franks, Oxon Hill, Franklin, Dunbar, Linganore, Oakdale, Urbana, all of the WCAC and MIAA, since 90. I've seen every NOVA public and most tidewater teams in my playing days in the 80's.
Middletown last year yes, they would ran many of the private schools right into the ground. Just like some of the old Dunbar, Roosevelt, Suitland, Huntingtown, QO, River Hill, Linganore, and Sherwood teams to name a few. This year no I don't see it happening lost two much and I saw what CHC did to Franklin so they aren't even in the mix.
I went to and played for a public school and will always cheer for them in the private public battle as long as we're not playing them. My old teammates will all be hooking up on the 5th making the ride to Clifton VA cheering on the Wildcats in their big game on TV.
