On Dec. 3 Paul Laurence Dunbar High School Baltimore made a trip to the Annapolis Navy Marine Corps Stadium in search of history.
A victory would put them in an elite category of teams that have earned 12 state football championships. Only one other school has accomplished that feat and another victory would give Coach Lawrence Smith eight state shampionships.The Poets started off slow and their opponent, the Patuxent High School Panthers, raced to a 13-point lead. As the Poets regrouped, their defense stiffened and did not allow the Panthers to gain another point.
The Dunbar Poets went on to win the 2A/1A State Football Championship with a score of 22-13. Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott was there to celebrate the victory and congratulate the winners along with Baltimore City Public Schools (City Schools) CEO, Sonja Santelises, Ed.D.
