The Carmel Valley Dons Tackle Football 5th grade team has started its season with an impressive four-game winning streak. In a recent game against the Chula Vista Aztecs, the Dons players demonstrated a strong offensive show by putting up 40 points against the Aztecs. Outstanding line play by Grant Anderson (5), Justin Vilchis (34), Logan Berzins (11), Cole Shearson (22), Leo Silverman (55) and Raymond Sanchez (9) proved too powerful. Crew Fritsch (56) added, “these guys are beasts with an average weight of 110 lbs. per player, anyone can run behind our Offensive Line.”
Not to be outdone, running backs William Alter (15), Edin Gonzalez (32), Owen Davies (83), and Ethan Kreutzmann all had long impressive runs. First-year wide receiver, Young Soo Kim (6) caught an impressive 40-yard pass for a touchdown from team captain Jack Foate (20) and Chaz Talman (1) scored his first touchdown on an impressive sweep of 15 yards.
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.
