All-Met Watch | Football

Previous: Preseason | Week 1 | Week 2

This past weekend was solid for much of the All-Met Watch first team, with only two changes, as a pair of defensive backs join the list: Atholton senior Matt Robinson and Lake Braddock senior Thomas Stickford. With most teams getting into their league schedules, there will be plenty of opportunities for the top players to be tested in the next few weeks. As in the past, the final selections will rest with The Post high school sports staff.

Latest On The Varsity Debate

This week we debut our high school football forum. Our first question is "Which area high school football players have emerged from obscurity to become bonafide stars this season?" but you can raise any topic you'd like.

The list of all All-Met teams since 1990.
