The H.D. Woodson High School Football team needs our support. Woodson is not just a school, but the lifeline of its community enhancing the lives of numerous disadvantage students since it opened in 1972. Though the last District of Columbia Public School (DCPS) built, Woodson strives for excellence and has accumulated more DCIAA Championships than any other school in the history of DCPS Athletics and is the POWERHOUSE of DC Public High Schools Football.
Woodson’s football team’s winning tradition has afforded players the opportunity to attend Division 1 colleges and universities across the nation afterwhich, numerous have been drafted into the National Football League i.e. former NFL players: Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback and current Quarterbacks Coach of the Arizona Cardinals Byron Leftwich, Washington Redskins wide receiver and kick returner Josh Morgan, Baltimore Ravans’ offensive tackle Orlando Brown to current players New Orleans Saints cornerback Ken Crawley and Detroit Lions defensive back Tavon Wilson and a host of others.
Approximately 78% of the total student body are identified as economically disadvantaged. Yet through adversity, Woodson students continue to win. Six(6) of its players are amongst the 2018 DC Top20 Football Recurits with 3 in the Top5.
Over the years, the football program has been a catalyst driving the graduation rate within the school. Pushing students to their limits, Woodson football has given young men the passion to succeed. Due to their resilience and commitment, DCIAA Championship Football Titles run through NE DC, east of the river.
The H.D. Woodson football program is bridged together by respect and discipline. Each athlete agrees to be “a young man, student, and then an athlete. To be part of Woodson’s football tradition, the staff ask students to strive for EXCELLENCE. In response, students display their efforts through their commitment and dedication.
Utilizing athletics to help students succeed in and out of the classroom, the coaching staff contributes to the school's increased graduation rates among scholars. Woodson athletes are not only showing their commitment to the sport(s) they're involved in, they are also proving their dedication through academic achievement, attending study hall for classes where they require additional assistance.
During the 2015-16 school year, over 2 dozen players were on the HONOR ROLL.
From practice to game days, students show up and show out with all that they possess. As a result, H.D. Woodson has been represented in five (5) consecutive DCPS Turkey Bowls, winning four (4) DCIAA HIGH SCHOOL CITY CHAMPIONSHIPS consecutively and has won more DCIAA titles than any other DCPS school in history.
The proud, dominating Woodson Warrior football team has been winning year after year in uniforms that were purchased when the new school building was opened seven (7) years ago. In the continuation of Woodson’s domination on the field, the team needs new uniforms.
Overly worn and falling apart with holes, rips, and tears, uniforms are repeatedly taken to the cleaners for repair. However, due to the nature of the sport, repairs are only temporary. We are asking alumni, family & friends to help our young men dress like the CHAMPIONS they are on the field. They are desperately in need of new uniforms. Our goal is to purchase 120 in total.
