For the second year in a row, the Curtis High School Warriors are New York City’s varsity football champions.

After a nail-biter of a game underneath the pouring rain, Curtis High School’s varsity football team prevailed over the previously undefeated Erasmus Hall Campus, 36-35, during the PSAL City Conference Championship game at Yankee Stadium on December 5.

Led by the senior trio of Quincy Barnes (QB, #3), Ty Son Lawton (RB, #17), and Amad Anderson, Jr. (WR, #24), the Warriors scored five touchdowns en route to their seventh overall PSAL City Conference football championship, the most among all City public schools since 1971.

Both teams finished 11-1 on the season; Curtis H.S.’s lone loss of the season came against this same Erasmus Hall team back in September.

Yankee Stadium has not been kind to the Erasmus Hall Dutchmen in recent years, as this loss marked the team’s fourth-straight loss in four years at the House That Jeter Built. Still, the fact that the Dutchmen have been able to make it to four straight City Conference championship games speaks volumes about the team’s talent level and culture.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this year’s City Conference Championship!
