Sophomore quarterback Mabrey Mettauer has goals that go beyond the football field. He and his brother McKade, a Cal football player and TWHS alum, are raising funds for the local Ronald McDonald House.
“Our goal is $50,000 and we are at $38.8K in a month and a half,” Mettauer said.
With the funds, they would like to build a new wheelchair accessible playground, and have a shade canopy installed on the playground at the Ronald McDonald House.
The Mettauer brothers had a connection to the Ronald McDonald House through McKade’s girlfriend, and have been able to volunteer there, serving food and signing footballs.
While there, they have met several who were staying at the House.
“I met this kid who’d had open heart surgery and he was 4 years old – he showed us his scar,” Mabrey said.
With the end of the football season at TWHS, Mabrey hopes to bring teammates down to volunteer with him.

“We had a lady donate $1,000 because she thought the cause was a good one,” Mabrey said.
