Since I came around in 2006, the Coolidge Colts have made the playoffs every year. After Friday nights game against Dunbar, they are in serious jeopardy of not. It was a tough, defensive game and Coolidge led 7-0 until the 4th quarter. Dunbar scored two touchdowns and won 14-7. Read Tony Owusu's DCSportsFan article here. As the clock flashed 0:00, the Coolidge Colts' tears and dejection were on display as if they would not play another game. Their last game of the season will prove to be meaningless as a trip to the playoffs, barring a miracle, is not likely. The disappointment shone most vividly on the faces of the seniors who have never had the chance to play in the Turkey Bowl, DC's public school championship played annually on Thanksgiving Day.
I'll photograph the Coolidge Football Colts on Thanksgiving one day. I will. Shout out to the seniors.
