    Starting in early September, the St. Albans Bulldogs pulled off a one-month stretch that any soccer program dreams about: nine wins, no goals conceded.

    Sometimes in sports, an accomplishment like that goes purposely unremarked upon, like a no-hitter. Whether it’s a fear of jinxing things or disrupting rhythm, coaches are often hesitant to advertise those types of streaks.

    Not at St. Albans.

    High school football notebook: Dunbar QB proving size doesn’t matter

    By Washington Post Staff 10/15/2019, 5:45am EDT

    Three years ago, when Dunbar quarterback Amonte Dreher was contemplating which school to play for, he had one major concern: Would the coach view him as a quarterback or make him switch to another position?

    Standing just 5-foot-4 at the time, Dreher had been playing quarterback his whole life and had no interest in changing once he got to high school.

    After multiple coaches questioned whether his height would limit him, Dreher found someone who was willing to give him a shot.

    “Amonte looked me in the eyes and said: ‘Coach, I know I’m short, but I’m a quarterback. I just need a chance,’ ” Dunbar Coach Maurice Vaughn said.

    Vaughn has firsthand knowledge that height doesn’t always dictate success. In 1983, Vaughn led Dunbar to a Turkey Bowl appearance despite being 5-7.

    “As a shorter quarterback myself, I told him, ‘If you show me you that can throw, I don’t care how tall you are,’ ” Vaughn said. “ ‘You’ll be allowed to play quarterback here.’ ”
