1st State Championship Is 1 Win Away For Broadneck Football
BROADNECK, MD - Broadneck High School football will play for its first state title this Friday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.
The Bruins beat Winston Churchill High School of Potomac 31-7 last Friday. Broadneck will now play in the Maryland Class 4A state championship against Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High School of Upper Marlboro.
This is Broadneck football's second appearance in the state title game. The Bruins lost in their only other state final in 2003, the Severna Park Voice reported.
Eli Harris is a Broadneck senior wide receiver committed to playing for Navy next year. He is excited to compete for a state crown in his future college stadium.
“It’s a different level of excitement,” Harris told the Voice. “You’re only there one time, maybe two times in your life, getting that experience of playing on the big stage in front of a big crowd. We’re fortunate.”
