The Carmel Valley Dons Spring 8 Tackle Football 3rd-4th grade team has started its season with an impressive six-game winning streak. In a recent game against the Mira Mesa Gold team (5-0 at that time), the Dons players demonstrated a strong defensive show, allowing only one touchdown. Outstanding linebacker play by Zackary Thorn (19), AJ Gustaveson (5), and Jack Foate (20) held the Mira Mesa team to only three first downs. Game captain Crew Fritsch commented, “We got such good defensive line play by Justin Vilchis (28) , Logan Berzins (11), Leo Silverman (32), and Troy Manzano (18) made it all possible.” On the offensive side, outstanding blocking by Mark Lingren and Chaz Talman proved too much for Mira Mesa at the CV Dons won decisively 20-7.

The Carmel Valley Dons Youth Football League was formed in 2010 to create a highly competitive Division 1 Youth Football Program in the Carmel Valley area to prepare top athletes for high school football. The League’s home stadium is Cathedral Catholic High School (CCHS) and players proudly wear the colors of CCHS. Informally nicknamed “Little Dons” by the Cathedral High football players, much of the team’s first year success can be attributed to the support of Cathedral’s Varsity Head Coach Sean Doyle and Athletic Director David Smola. For information about the League, visit www.cvdons.com. Fall registration is now open for boys ages 5-14.
