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!

Frosh Dons Scored First, But Could Not Get the Win

Frosh Dons Scored First, But Could Not Get the Win

The bad news is that the freshmen lost a football game to Campolindo 20-12. The good news is that the Dons more than held their own in the trenches – on the offensive and defensive lines. This bodes well for the future. While it was an off day for the passing game, Acalanes ran the ball all over the place.…

Football: About Being Perfect

Football: About Being Perfect

Being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there, it’s not about winning. It’s about you, and your relationship to your family, yourself, and your friends. Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye, and know that you didn’t let them down because you told them the truth. And that truth is that you did…

OUCH! Dons Lose by One Point, Acalanes 34- Las Lomas 35

JV Football Does it Again, 41 Dons-Knights 0

The JV Don’s Football team was in action on Friday vs the Knights of Las Lomas.

The Dons Freshman Lost an Exciting Game to San Marin, 35-32

With key players out for the Dons, it was great to see other players step up and assume an expanded role. EITAN ROMICK filled in for KEEGAN GODDARD at running back and was spectacular. ROMICK ran effectively both between the tackles and outside on the option pitch for a total of 209 yards rushing. Wow! Awesome to see the offensive…

The JV Don’s continued to roll this week shutting out Castlemont High School with the score of 56 to 0. What a great way to cap off a amazing Homecoming Week!

FROSH FOOTBALL: Early Lead ends in a Dons Victory, Acalanes 38-Hertiage 26

Set…Ready…Go FOOTBALL!

As incredible as it was to get a short six-game Spring after the COVID-delayed 2020 Football Season, it was just not the same as the Friday Night Lights extravaganza that we look forward to each Fall. 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 ...
