Dear DC Touchdown Club members and supporters,
Every year at our annual Awards Dinner, I marvel at the former Timmie Award winners in attendance. But I also wonder where many of these special people are now. So this week in The Extra Point, we are introducing a regular feature to catch up with these people and see where they have been and what they have done. I hope that you enjoy this as much as I do.
If there is someone you are wondering about, or perhaps you have an interesting story about a former Timmie Award winner, please reach out to Josh Barr on our staff at and let him know.
Yours in football,

Steve Beck

Week 1: DC Touchdown Club High School Player of the Week
Damascus running back and linebacker Jake Funk rushed for a career-high 276 yards and four touchdowns and made 11 tackles on defense, with two for loss and one sack, leading the Swarmin’ Hornets to a 39-17 victory over Quince Orchard in a meeting of northern Montgomery County rivals that  entered ranked in The Washington Post’s top 10.

1984 Timmie Award for Prep High School Player of the Year

Three-time All-Pro Eric Metcalf resides in Seattle, where he founded an elite high school track club and is a volunteer assistant coach for the University of Washington track and field program.

Metcalf, who was the 1984 Prep High School Player of the Year while starring for O’Connell, played 13 seasons in the NFL, where he was a multidimensional threat at wide receiver, running back and returning kicks. His 12 returns for touchdowns are the third-most in NFL history.

After his football career, Metcalf returned to track, where he had been a four-time All-American and two-time NCAA champion long jumper during his career at the University of Texas. He went on to coach high school track, founded the Sea Town Express and is entering his fifth season at the University of Washington.

Ballou (2-0) vs. Carroll (1-0), 7 pm at Wilson High: The start of the DCSAA Pigskin Kickoff Classic has an interesting public/private meeting. On Saturday, the Classic continues as St. Albans will host the first games at its newly rebuilt stadium, including its game against Anacostia at 2.


Sherwood (1-0) at Clarksburg (1-0), 6:30 pm: Both teams cruised to easy victories in their openers last week, but this should provide an accurate measuring stick among upper-tier Montgomery County 4A teams.

Douglass (0-1) at Riverdale Baptist (1-1), 7: At a time when many teams avoid early-season showdowns, these two teams are testing themselves. Maryland 2A defending champion Douglass opened with a loss to Prince George’s 4A power Wise, while independent Riverdale Baptist has lost to McNamara and handled another Prince George’s 4A heavyweight, Eleanor Roosevelt.

Howard (1-0) at Wilde Lake (1-0), 7: After toppling Howard County power River Hill in their opener, the Wildecats take on last year’s Maryland 4A semifinalists.


South County (1-0) at Westfield (1-0), 7: The Stallions threw four touchdown passes in last week’s opening victory over Briar Woods, but Westfield’s stingy defense will be a tougher test in the best game this week in Fairfax County

Battlefield (2-0) at Woodbridge (2-0), 7:30: Both teams have put together solid wins to start the season, but face a tough challenge this week in this meeting of top Prince William County teams.
