DeMatha reinforces status by easily fending off Rock Creek Christian
Moments after the public address announcer called DeMatha running back Tovani Mizell’s touchdown run late in Friday night’s game, the Stags’ fight song blared over the speakers at Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex in Landover.
DeMatha, long the premier program in Prince George’s County, was headed to another win — 26-0, over Rock Creek Christian Academy — and the familiar tune marked another celebration for the Hyattsville private school.
It was also a reminder of the strength of DeMatha’s tradition. No. 9 Rock Creek Christian Academy, an up-and-coming program from Upper Marlboro, entered the season with visions of shaking up the local hierarchy. But No. 3 DeMatha restored order.
“There’s a lot of history behind it,” said DeMatha defensive end Jason Moore, an Ohio State commit. “It’s a lot of responsibility to stand up to it. It’s definitely an honor to put [the jersey] on and represent DeMatha the best way I can.”
