How does that Jackson five song go again? Because that is what the Martinsburg Bulldogs did today and did what they had done all playoffs long. Win and win BIG.
I had a little bit of doubt when it came too playing George Washington last week. But it was NO CONTEST. Today was an undefeated Cabell Midland team, The question was (by most) how big would the Bulldogs win? Answer to that question is 38-14.
The last time there was a triple crown winner in triple-a was 1968-1970. By a school that no longer exists Charleston High School. Richard Nixon was still in office for that. So a mighty long time in between a triple crown.
What needs to be said and written about these three teams.Is They where just that TEAMS. Was not really a "superstar" among the bunch. From what Dave Walker has said on the radio and what not theres no egos. They just did it the right way and won three state titles.I have read/heard that many felt Ryan Switzer is the best player in the state and even last week when. Justin "Cookie" Clinton went nuts on George Washington. That Ryan Switzer was the best player on the field that day. But I start to question that.
I do not get a vote for the Kennedy Award (best football player state in West Virginia). But if I did I would swing it to Clinton. And here is why (not just a Martinsburg slant), Numbers wise he is right there with Switzer and among that he did not miss a game and Switzer did. Not only those two things but what also sticks out to me? Switzer was bottled up and DOMINATED twice. Were as for Clinton everytime he touched the ball he made magic happen. So although I know as does anyone else that follows High School sports that this area is hated upon from the rest of the state. Martisnburg is the best TEAM and has the best player in the state this year. NO QUESTIONS ASKED
Off my soap box.
Trey Boyd had the longest carry of 83 yards in todays game. Setting a Triple A state championship record Had to add that tidbit in here somewere.
So now where does the Bulldogs go from here? I have heard some people say that Martinsburg could be as good if not better next year than this year. I am not going to put the cart in front of the horse but that is just some rumblings.
Once again HUGE congrats goes out to Dave Walker and the Martinsburg Bulldogs. As 3-peating is no small feat!
