The Washington Generals attacked hard on offense, defense, and special teams to secure a 55-0 win over the Jordan Bulldogs. The victory gives Washington Prep a 4-2 overall record and Jordan now has a 5-2 overall record in their first Metro league loss.
“I feel like we just kept our head up, we fought,” said junior wide receiver Logan Johnson “We didn’t let nothing happen, nothing bring us down and we fought until the end, like we always do.”
The Generals set the tone at kick-off when senior Anthony Whitsey sprinted in a return for a touchdown. Whitsey noted how he wants to put his best foot forward anytime he can.
“I want these offers, I’m trying to go to college,” Whitsey said. “I got to show out every time, 110 percent, not just 100 percent, ball out 110 percent.”

Along with being quarterback, Whitsey played on defense and made an interception in the second quarter. The Washington Prep defense kept the Bulldogs in their own territory, they only had 58 rushing yards.
By halftime, Washington Prep had scored 40 points.
“It’s what we do, we come out here, we dominate,” said junior Fernando Barrios. “We’re predicted to lose by seven, we took that personally, we bounced back. Nobody believed in us, God did.”
Junior Sesame Mixon scored two touchdown rushes. He was a main source of rushing yards for the Generals in the match up.
“Coach just said “hit the hole if you see it wide open and go to the house for the touchdown,”” Mixon said. “He’s been telling us that all week.”
Washington Prep snapped Jordan’s three-game winning streak to create a three-game streak for themselves. Every team that lost to Washington Prep scored no more than six points. Jordan shut out Contreras and West Adams to start their season.
Jordan senior Henry Benson made 10 carries for 23 yards and sophomore Amauri Powns made four rushes for 24 yards against the Generals.
“They played a good game, we played a good game,” said Washington Prep junior Isaiah Harris. “We’ve had a couple bad games in the past, so I feel like this game really boosted our confidence a lot.”
