RIVERDALE, Md. (WUSA) — On Saturday, the Roosevelt Raiders bumped their record to 4-1 with a 47-12 victory over Parkdale.
“The game plan was to work hard, work on our consistency, work on their game plan … and make sure we step up,” said senior defensive tackle Jaylen Powell, and based on Saturday’s results, that strategy was a success.
Next, Roosevelt will take on a 1-4 Laurel squad. In keeping with Saturday’s game plan, Powell said Roosevelt will not underestimate their opponents. They will approach each game with the same competitive edge — a mindset that will be key to the Raiders’ success against Prince George’s 4A teams like Flowers.
