Washington Post reporter B.J. Koubaroulis speaks with Hayfield quarterback Anton McCallum, a dual threat whose father Willie is Hayfield's offensive coordinator. Together the two are weighing Anton's options between Delaware, James Madison, Pittsburgh, Rhode Island, Temple, Shepherd and Illinois.

I got a chance to interview Hayfield QB Anton McCallum and his father Willie, the Hawks' offensive coordinator.

One bit of news that had to hit the cutting room floor was that Willie, a former area football player, was the offensive coordinator at West Potomac for the first two years of Anton's high school career.

When Hayfield played in the Patriot District, the two schools played each other. That meant that his defensive coaches at West Potomac would ask him, "How do you stop Anton?"

Imagine having to game plan against your son.

With his father at Hayfield now, Anton is tearing it up. He's blown up in the last few weeks, going for more than 300 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. The Hawks are averaging a Northern Region best 36.5 points per game heading into Friday's district championship against Edison.

McCallum is now getting looks from Delaware, James Madison, Pittsburgh, Rhode Island, Temple, Shepherd and Illinois.
