Cato June named Anacostia football coach



Cato June, the 1997 All-Met Defensive Player of the Year at Anacostia and former NFL Pro Bowl linebacker, is Anacostia’s new football coach, Athletic Director Walter Bond said.

June replaces Terry Dixon, who was fired after two seasons, Bond said. Under Dixon, who took over for longtime coach Willie Stewart, the Indians compiled a 1-17 record. Anacostia finished last in the D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association this fall with a 0-8 overall record, including a forfeit for its role in a fight that ended its Oct. 22 game against McKinley.



June was the team’s defensive coordinator this fall and currently serves as the school’s athletic administrator, Bond said.

“It feels great,” June said. “Being able to kind of start again where everything all started in a sense and being able to take things that I’ve learned in my career and affect change in a positive way. It’s one thing to give money and give speeches, but it’s different to be part of the day-to-day operations.”

June starred as a running back and defensive back at Anacostia from 1995 to 1997, and was also a standout student. He played safety at Michigan and was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the sixth round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He spent four seasons with Colts, earning a Pro Bowl selection in 2005, and then two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. June appeared in a game for the Chicago Bears in 2009, his last season in the NFL.

“It was a fantastic opportunity to snap up a guy that knows the area and can relate to the kids here and knows what it’s like for them,” Bond said. “And he has the knowledge of the game and I see it already in the planning for the season.”

June said his offensive coordinator will be Walter Cross, the 1997 All-Met Offensive Player of the Year and fellow Michigan player, who held the same position at Potomac (Md.) this fall. June also said Stewart will also help with some coaching.

STAR HEADS BACK TO “THE VIEW”



Apparently enough water has flowed under the bridge for Barbara Walters and Star Jones to reunite for a day.

“The View” announced on Wednesday that Jones will appear on the daytime talk show on Feb. 22 to promote an awareness campaign about heart disease among women.

Walters and Jones had a falling out in 2006 when Jones, one of the five original co-hosts of the daytime chat show, exited “The View.” ABC decided not to renew her contract and Jones took Walters by surprise by announcing on June 27 that she would be leaving the show.

That exit came more quickly than expected. Walters wouldn’t allow her back the next day.

Walters later said that Jones had compelled her co-hosts to lie for her by not revealing that Jones had undergone gastric bypass surgery while on “The View.” Jones took her own shots, criticizing Walters for writing an autobiography that revealed details of an affair.

The women later had something serious in common. Both underwent open heart surgery to repair faulty heart valves within two months of each other in 2010.

Jones is coming back to the show to discuss her involvement in the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” public information campaign. Women are asked to wear red on Feb. 3 to support heart patients.
