It’s Championship Day For The Fabulous Falcons

The Day has finally arrived.

Championship Day for the Fabulous Falcons of Danvers High School.

The Day the Falcons reach a pinnacle of perfection one would never have imagined just a few years ago.

It will take a fantastic effort today against 21-3 Marlboro in the DCU Center in Worcester starting at 4 p.m. But this is their day and no one else’s as they become MIAA Division 2 state champions.

The Fabulous Falcons’ third state championship in four years. One of only four teams to accomplish such a title dominance in MIAA history. The only school to do it in two different divisions while moving up a level. And only the second North Shore team ever to finish 27-0.

The Day Coach John Walsh and his staff will lead at their very best.

The Day Peter Merry will have a career two-way performance pitted against a worthy adversary.

The Day Devan Harris puts a fitting finale on the most spectacular two-year career in DHS basketball history.

The Day Vinny Clifford caps a glorious senior year comeback following knee surgery with one of his finest games at both ends of the floor.

The Day Mike Nestor solidifies his role as the team’s most unsung hero with yet another dynamic defensive performance.

The Day Devonn Allen plays yet another marvelous all-around game as quarterback/playmaker, outside/inside scoring threat and defensive stopper/ballhawk deluxe.

The Day Rashad Francois provides a repeat splendid spark off the bench with his eclectic play from all angles — three-point bomber, basket penetrator, defensive demon.

The Day Tre Crittendon and the rest of the bench provide the exact kind of support, on the court and on the sideline, the regulars need to complete this dream of a season.

The Day theĀ Falcons’ fandom shines like never before with thunderous support from their DCU seats

On to 27-0. The perfect second bookend to go with unbeaten neighbor Hamilton-Wenham’s Division 4 state title victory from last night.
