The Bell football players snuck behind Coach Daniel Tyson on their sideline with about a minute remaining Saturday afternoon and surprised him with a celebratory ice water bath.

Those players then embraced Tyson with hugs before counting down the final five seconds of the 47-0 win with their fans. When the scoreboard read zeros, and Bell had won its first District of Columbia Interscholastic Athletic Association Gravy Bowl, the Griffins stormed Dunbar’s field in Northwest Washington and formed a dogpile near the 50 yard-line.
