WASHINGTON, D.C., November 28, 2013 — This year Woodrow Wilson and H.D. Woodson Senior High School will face each other in the 44th Annual Turkey Bowl.
The Turkey Bowl is the District championship football game. The build up to the game has been tremendous, with students from both schools being treated to a week’s worth of excitement leading up to the big D.C. Thanksgiving tradition.
On Monday the athletes were invited to the Verizon Center where they enjoyed a large meal side by side with their upcoming opponents. And while the teams enjoyed the time they spent together, tensions are high for the actual Turkey Bowl.
So far this season, Woodrow Wilson Warriors has only suffered one loss on the field. And that loss came at the hands of the H.D. Woodson High School team. This will be Wilson’s first Turkey Bowl appearance since 2010, and with the teams meeting again in the District-wide Championship, you can bet everyone will be bringing their best game.
“This is a ritual here in the city,” said D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray. “It’s been for decades that this game has been played. I’m excited that we will hopefully have a full house again. I look forward to being out there.”
The game is today at 11am at Eastern High School.
