FOOTBALL + BOOSTERS

When the Friday Night Lights illuminate across America, entire cities shut down and everyone convenes at the local high school football game. Acalanes Football is always a  big Fall Friday Night event: players, coaches, parents, students, and friends gather together under the lights to cheer on our Champion Dons! The  Acalanes football players and coaches pour it all out on the field in an effort to prevail. Don fans pack the stands to support and cheer on their Dons. There’s a genuine love and desire to see the team and players do well. The bonds and relationships form at Acalanes typically last a lifetime, and it all starts at the beginning of the school year, the excitement of  our men of Blue on the football field, the grandstands full of fans, and the magic in the air on Friday night

WELCOME TO DON'S NATION!

You better ‘BLUE’ieve it! Acalanes football has always been about building a solid foundation for a young person’s life, based on principles and experiences that can only be taught through the game. It’s about cultivating genuine relationships between players, coaches, and a community of fans. We are proud of our Varsity  (2019 DAL League Champions),  JV  and  Freshman teams. There’s nothing like Acalanes Football.  We encourage parents to talk to our coaches and parents.

BECOME A BOOSTER NOW AND PICK UP YOUR CARD ON GAME DAY

See you in the stands!

While everything around us is certainly not back to normal, we are hopeful that we will be welcoming back a “real” ten-game action-packed fan-filled ...
