The Carmel Valley Dons sixth-grade Pee Wee football team rolled to an impressive 47–0 win over the Granite Hills Eagles. The Dons' stellar defense held the Eagles to one first down the entire game. Ethan Dellar and George Hagestad both had interceptions for The Dons. Middle linebacker and defensive captain Tony Perez and Ryan Thomas led the defense to a shut out of Granite Hills.
On offense, running backs Demitri Washington and Ethan Deller ran for huge gains behind an offensive line of Kevin Gottlieb, AJ Van Ryn, Ben McCoy, Jack Rosoff and Carson Drake that dominated the Eagles.
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.
