For the first time since 1996, the Westinghouse Bulldogs are on top of the City League football world.
A 12-2 victory on Saturday, Oct. 26, over University Prep was followed by a joyous celebration for the Homewood team, as quarterback Troy Lanier completed 7 of 14 passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns, and star defensive end Dayon Hayes had 1.5 sacks and helped tame the U-Prep running game.
In an interview with the New Pittsburgh Courier earlier in the season, Bulldogs coach Donta Green said that “it takes maturity to finish games,” and his team struggled early on. “It’s just finishing those games and really driving that point home that we have to finish,” Green said.
Well, things have changed. After losing their first three games of the year, including a 32-22 decision to University Prep on Sept. 5, Westinghouse has won seven straight games, including the convincing City League championship win this past Saturday.
