"I just think everyone coming out in the community, just showing us how proud they are of us, I just believe that it shows just the true heart of this town and of the city of Martinsburg," said senior wide-out and defensive back Cedric Brown.
And for a former Bulldog player that has gone on to bigger things, he says a team like the Bulldogs can bring the community closer together.
"I think it brings pride to the entire community, as demonstrated today," said Sen. John Unger, who also played football at Martinsburg back in the day. "I mean the community came out in support of these players, these coaches, the administrators. This school is a quality school. And it starts right at academics and goes all the way to the athletics."
Senator Unger says he plans to take the Bulldogs down to Charleston to be recognized for their accomplishments, which would just add to the memories these players have.
"A great legacy here that I think will stay here for the rest of our lives," said Brown. "Just memories that will be here with us. With the teammates, coaches, and just the fans here. And I'm just glad that everything happened how it did. I think it was just true destiny."
And for the Bulldogs that will carry on that legacy next season: it's 28 wins and counting.
