Varsity Football Wins Share of 2017 I.A.C. Title

Georgetown Prep's varsity football team won a share of the 2017 Interstate Athletic Conference (I.A.C.) championship with a 35-12 victory over visiting Bullis on November 11.

Running back Jalen Hampton '20 led the Hoyas on offense. He rushed for a team-high 129 yards and four touchdowns. Prep's defense continued its impressive play and did not give up a point until the fourth quarter. Read The Washington Post's recap of the game here.

For the season, Prep's defense only allowed 39 points in I.A.C. conference play, the third consecutive year the Hoyas have surrendered less than 40 points in conference play.

Prep opened their season with impressive road wins against Bishop O'Connell High School and Gilman School. Prep lost to Gonzaga in the annual Jesuit Gridiron Classic, but rebounded the next week to defeat a talented Riverdale Baptist School. The Hoyas defeated Benedictine 28-9 the next week before conference play.

In I.A.C. conference play, Prep defeated St. Stephen's & St. Agnes, 45-7, before losing their only conference game to Landon, 10-3, the following week. Prep beat a talented Episcopal High School team on the road (14-10) and St. Albans (41-0) on Homecoming Weekend.

Prep shares the 2017 I.A.C. title with Landon. The Hoyas finish their season with an 8-2 overall record and 4-1 league record.
