Anacostia's Xavier Harkum (33) breaks up a pass in the end zone intended for Dunbar's Michael Smith (19) in the first quarter during the 43nd Annual DCIAA Turkey Bowl Varsity Football Championship at Eastern High School in Washington, D.C., Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012. This game, played between two District high school football teams is rich in tradition and always played on Thanksgiving Day, however this year's contest had a slight change in the last few days leading up to the game when Woodrow WIlson High School was disqualified because one the team's players was found to have been a resident of Maryland. Anacostia High School was chosen as an alternative. (Rod Lamkey Jr./The Washington Times)
