The origins of the Columbia street named "Coon Hunt Court" are murky, but the inappropriateness of it is crystal clear. The name should be changed. Coon Hunt Court is a tiny cul de sac with only six homes on it, tucked away off of Thunder Hill Road in Oakland Mills. You might have driven by it on your way to somewhere else. If so, you've probably wondered what in the world whoever named the street was thinking. Yes, we know "coon" is short for "raccoon," and Columbia is full of cute names, some having to do with critters.

Francis Scott Key coach Mike Coons said trying to build a winning football program has been fun.It just hasn't always been easy.The Eagles have lost five in a row, 26 of their last 27, and the school has not had a winning season since the mid-1970s. Coons and the rest of the Eagle program continue to plug on, however, hoping to again bring Francis Scott Key to a level of respectability.Coons took over at Francis Scott Key -- a Monocacy Valley Athletic League participant -- before the 1989 season.

Francis Scott Key football coach Mike Coons will be the first to tell you this is a "crucial" year for his Eagle program."Not necessarily on the field," Coons said. "It's all about attitude. The kids have to hang together and decide this is what they want to do and that it (football) is important to them. We're not rebuilding -- we're building."Construction won't happen overnight. A year ago, the Eagles finished the season without a win -- 0-10. Coons knows he is building fromthe ground up."

Jason Zinkand was 7 when his dad got him started in rec football."I loved it as soon as I stepped on the field. I liked running into people," he said.These days as Francis Scott Key's starting tailback, Zinkand is still doing his share of running into people. But he's also running around them and past them, too.One of Key coach Mike Coons' biggest concerns going into the season was who would take over the running duties left behind by 1,000-yard rusher Cortney Woodyard.
