ROCKVILLE – The War at Wootton 7 on 7 Tournament featured some of the area’s top high school football programs including Bullis, Quince Orchard and Gaithersburg but it was only fitting that the host team capture top honors Saturday at Wootton High School.
Led by a core unit that featured quarterback Grant Saylor and wide receivers Noelly Miller and Elijah Trent, the Patriots defeated Avalon in the championship game to earn the top prize.
“I just wanted to show everybody that Wootton is a football school,” said Miller, a second team All-Sentinel performer last season. “The past couple years we’ve been [expected] to lose every game but I want to change that and turn our whole program around. We’ve got a lot of talent obviously and I think we have a good chance of making the playoffs this year.”
