“We are so proud of the Washington Glory’s impressive inaugural season and all their accomplishments,” said Council member Harry “Tommy” Thomas. “We’re excited about the strong mentorship and leadership that they are providing the youth of the District of Columbia through their Champions for Children foundation. Their champion level season provides our youth the worthwhile dream of striving for excellence -- and more importantly – the Washington Glory is focusing their off-season efforts to improve the lives of our community’s children through Champions for Children.”

“It’s absolutely wonderful to receive this recognition from the District of Columbia. Every member of the Washington Glory organization worked incredibly hard all season. It means a great deal to us for the Council members of the District of Columbia to honor us in this very special way,” said Paul Wilson, Washington Glory owner and general manager.
