WASHINGTON POST: When Theodore Roosevelt quarterback Khalil Wilkins races into the end zone for a touchdown, he mimics Superman — as many athletes do — but instead of sporting a Nike swoosh or Adidas stripes, it’s a little-known “U” logo on his chest.
It’s the same logo Dunbar’s Michael Brown signals to after making a crucial catch during his games in Northwest D.C. In Southeast, the Anacostia Indians race onto the field with a feather design lining the outer seam of their pants; to the right of the design sits that U.
And on the sideline, at each of these teams’ games, you can often find one of the men behind the Unison brand, Phil Morgan Jr., beaming with pride. What started as a conversation during a business course at Bowie State has transformed into a company that has become part of the fabric of the city.
