BEN GUTMAN, STAFF WRITER: 

Ever since Wilson’s questionable disqualification from last year’s DCIAA football championship, veteran senior quarterback Scot Beumel has had a chip on his shoulder. After leading the Tigers to an impressive 8-3 regular season record last year, including a 7-1 record in DCIAA play, Beumel set some high expectations for Wilson football this fall.

The Tigers have been challenged early on in the 2013-14 season, coming up with a 2-2 record at the start of a fairly formidable schedule. “The coaches put more responsibility on me this year, so I’ve got to work hard and play well to prove that I deserve the opportunity,” Beumel said.

Beumel and the Tigers went to work fast with a striking 55-12 blowout of Perry Street Prep School in the season opener. Beumel completed 26 of 35 passes for 241 yards and three touchdowns, along with a rushing touchdown to boost Wilson past the long-time rival.

Wilson continued its unbeaten streak against DCIAA teams, which dates back to September of last year, with a 30-14 win at Anacostia avenging their only loss to a public school last season. Beumel led Wilson with two touchdown passes and an early 1-0 record in league play.

However, Beumel isn’t the only one who deserves the credit for recent outstanding offensive efforts. “My offensive line and receivers are the best in the city and they really help me out,” he said.

Two tough losses against competitive Prince George’s County schools Surrattsville High School from Clinton, Maryland(3-0) and DuVal High School in Lanham, Maryland (ranked 14th in Maryland) brought the Tigers down to a 2-2 record. While Beumel led a daring fourth quarter comeback throwing three touchdown passes against Surrattsville, Wilson was unable to capitalize, losing 20-19 on a botched two point conversion attempt in the last few seconds of the game.

Beumel has displayed unyielding dedication and success on the field, throwing for an average of 144 yards per game with eight touchdowns. “The team is working really hard to get back to the Turkey Bowl to prove it wasn’t just a one year fluke,” Beumel said.
