POPLARVILLE – Pearl River Community College assistant football coach Terrence Metcalf has added another honor to his list of accolades.
Metcalf, who serves as assistant head coach and offensive line coach at PRCC, was named as one of 14 members of the Southeastern Conference Football Legends Class of 2017, representing Ole Miss, his alma mater.
"I'm glad that Ole Miss has selected me for this honor, but I'm not real big on that kind of stuff," said Metcalf. "I'm humbled and blessed to be a part of this."
The SEC Football Legends is an annual awards program that honors football greats from each of the league's 14 member schools.
Metcalf was a consensus All-America as an offensive lineman at Ole Miss in 2001, after starting all four seasons as a Rebel. He went on to a seven-year pro career, mostly with the Chicago Bears, for whom he played in Super Bowl LXI. He is in his second season as an assistant at PRCC.
