MLK Defeats Belmont Charter Tigers

By Andre Brown, Deputy Editor

King defeated the visiting Belmont Tigers as both teams opened up the new season at Benjamin L Johnson Stadium

The final score was 30-14 an excellent win for Coach Malik Jones and his Cougar team on this young season.

The game started with a defense stand that saw the Cougars take advantage of a young sometimes overpowered O-Line of Belmont

The first score came when Daimler Bobo-Brown (5’9 185,RB/LB) tunneled his way into the end zone

The play of Isaiah Robinson (5’9 165, RB/S) can not be ignored as he dashed the Tiger secondary for run after run on the open scoring drive for the cougars

Add in QB #17 Abdal Bin-Habib and the rushing attack for the Cougars were on fire a few untimely penalties kept the game even 6-6 at halftime

Credit to the coaching staff because in the second the Cougar defense stood up to play

Bobbo Brown, and Shafi Reed (6,2 185, WR/DB) who is also a standout in Track and Field attending the High School Nationals and finished as one of the fastest in the state lead a lethal defensive attack for the purple and gold

The young season saw the Cougars dominate and eventually walk away with a multiple touchdown victory over the Tigers of Belmont Charter

The roster for the Cougars is full of young talent and they look to have a chance at a deep run this season but will need the youth in the team to grow quickly and develop

A special Shoutout to at Makhai Robinson who made a number of key plays and even scored on an amazing catch and run but was called back by a penalty -AB11

I think this young man will surprise a lot of opponents this season and could be a player to watch as he is only in the Class of 2025.
