All hail the Commodores: Pep rally celebrates Maury HS football team's 1st state championship in 80 years

Maury had an in-school celebration of their first football state championship in 80 years.

NORFOLK, Va. — This kind of thing doesn't happen every day at Maury, but they could certainly get used to it. 

The school had a pep rally on Friday to honor their Class 5 state champion football team. It is Maury's first football title since 1939. 

The team defeated Stone Bridge 28-21 at Hampton University in the VHSL Class 5 State Football Championship on Dec. 14.

The Commodores completed a perfect 15-0 season.
