Turf Woodson - Twenty for Turf Many schools and parks in Fairfax County have installed synthetic turf fields in the past decade.  Unfortunately, W.T. Woodson and the surrounding area have lagged behind.  Now, after years of effort by the school, parents and community groups like Braddock Road Youth Club, W.T. Woodson is on track…

Football player, Andy Heck #88 is the only athlete to have his jersey number retired. Andy is currently the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaquars.

Hope everyone is making plans to attend some or all of the homecoming activities this weekend. The weather should be perfect. The campus looks beautiful, the students are excited.
It's homecoming weekend!!!
Let's go Cavs!!


Last question before we head into homcoming weekend.
Based on the history we could find, only one jersey has been retired from Woodson sports, Who wore that jersey and what sport?


It was the red power ranger and his name is Austin St. John.


What was the name of the power ranger that attended Woodson for a bit and what color was this power ranger


State Champion wins goes to Girl Lacrosse, although as mentioned, this could be a trick question since it has only been recently that VHSL has recognized girls lacrosse... State wins in 1995,97,99,02,04 and 05


Today Woodson trivia question. Which sport has won the most state championships.


It was the Latin team under the sponsorship of Mrs. Maureen O'Donnell. She was also awarded Virginia Teacher of the Year


During the early 80's, what team won national awards for Woodson.


yep, it was Chuck Billack. He was Woodson's first head football coach and then served as principal fro 1986-1991


Today's questions. Who was both a head football coach and a principal at Woodson?


You all are great...... it was April 1, 1973 at 3:15 PM a tornado took the roof of the school causing extensive damage, but fortunately since it was on a Sunday, there were no injuries. Student spent the rest of the school year at Oakton. The school set up 2 shifts to accommodate everyone. Round the clock work crews completed the repairs in time for school to open on time in September. There was a second tornado in 1979 that did damage to our athletic facilities. No damage to the school was done and classes were not interrupted.


Today's trivia question.. This will be easy for some, but it is the stuff of urban legends to younger generations.
What year AND month did the tornado take off the roof of Woodson HS? AND where did the students finish school that year?


If you answered boys basketball to our trivia question, you are correct... 3 coaches over the last 50 years,
Red Jenkins from 1962-1998
Mike Pfulgrath 1997-2004
and our current Coach Doug Craig since 2004
Woodson Cavaliers have brought home 19 district championships over those 50 years
