The Carmel Valley Dons Youth Football was formed in 2010 to create a highly competitive Division 1 football program in the Carmel Valley area aimed at  preparing top athletes for high school football.  Informally nicknamed “Little Dons” by the Cathedral High football players, much of the team’s success can be attributed to the support of Cathedral Varsity Head Coach Sean Doyle and Athletic Director David Smola.
