NFL fans are still cheering on the Redskins and RGIII, but in middle school football there’s already a champion. On Nov. 15, the Jefferson Middle School Trojans football team won the City-Wide DCIAA middle schools championship title by defeating Kramer Middle School 21-13. This was the culmination of an undefeated season with a 10-0 record. This was the school’s first ever city championship for football. It was also the first time a West Division football team had won the championship over an East Division team in many years.

The Trojans are led by Head Coach Ronald E. Hines, Sr. His coaching staff includes Shawn Hart, Mark Collins and Michael Hines. Coach Hines came to Jefferson in 2006, and over that seven year period Jefferson football has a record of 80 wins and only 9 losses, a fantastic record. The Trojans are always considered the team to beat. Almost every year the Trojans have been in the championship game, but until this year the title has always eluded them. NO MORE!

Jefferson MS football program wishes to thank all the parents, teachers, principal and the community for all the support they have provided to the school.
