MLK High football rolls to fourth consecutive win with rout of W. Philly [gallery]

After watching his team finish off its biggest victory of the season, a 50-8 rout over West Philly High, MLK  Cougars Head Football Coach Ed Dunn acknowledged steady improvement that led to its current four-game winning streak.

Friday night’s win makes the team’s slow start a distant memory.

“We’re getting better each week, slowly but surely,” Dunn told NewsWorks. “We still got things we need to improve on, but the trajectory is right.

“After starting 0-2, we’re starting to slowly get things together. I’m proud of the guys but your job’s never done until you get that [Public League] championship. We’re a step closer.”

Dunn also shouted out a stellar defense and the fact that “our stars played like stars today.”

Next up for the 4-2 Cougars is the 1-4 team from Boys’ Latin Charter.
