Did anyone here play in Arlington little league or the football league in the 70's? Played on FOP and two season with the Black Knights in baseball. In football played on the Bearcats, which won back to back County titles in the 75lb class.

Small world ... I played for Washington Police Boys Clubs #4 and #11. We played the "Arlington Black Knights" in football -- 100 pound I think it was. We went unbeaten two years in a row but I rmember coming to Yorktown HS and we barely escaped with a 7-0 win. It was the toughest team we played by far; I still remember since our kids ironically then both ended up playing for Yorktown. Hope you connect with some buds here.

I was a coach in the late 70's and early 80's for the Black Knight baseball teams at various age levels. Both my sons also played for the Knights for years.

I played on the Black Knights 120lbs and 130lbs in 1969, 1970 & 1971...we were undefeated in league play for three straight years. Our toughest games were almost always against the Bearcats. However, we did have a few close ones against the Cubs and the Hawks.

Does anyone remember the Black Knight's Coach Ed Hunter (1960's & 70's)? If so, whatever happen to him?

He was caught anally raping a young boy in a McDonald's bathroom, arrested, convicted, and now doing time.

Or it could have been a BK bathroom, I forget the details.

I played for the Black Knights 1964-1966...75, 80 and 90 lb. Head coach was Mr. McKay and asst. was Mr. Lilly. Won title every year. Last season we scored 161 pts and gave up 6. I still have yearbook. Toughest opponent was the Annandale Bulldogs. Ed Hunter coached the bigger guys at 120 as I remember (my brother played for him). I played tight end, defensive end, punter and kicker. My teammates were a really tough bunch! Sure wish I could see some of them again.

Thanks for the response. Say, what years did you play at O'Connell and what happened to Jeff Wilson and Ricky Saunders (I played with him too)?

Regards,

I played for Coach Kay 80lbs in 1970. I was a teammate of Gene "Bull" Maestas who posted above in 2014. In fact, he and I were next door neighbors in Fairlington. I also played football at Gunston Jr. High.
