Cathedral Catholic Dons (San Diego, CA) vs Damonte Ranch Mustangs (Reno, NV)
SoCal vs Nevada
Game Five, the finale of the SoCal Honor Bowl, is a Cali vs Nevada matchup for the first time! The visiting Mustangs will bring a strong team to San Diego to play the Dons for the third time! This will be Damonte Ranch’s second appearance in The Honor Bowl but for the first time in SoCal. Head Coach Shawn Dupris loves that this game worked out for both the school’s schedule. Most important, Coach Dupris looks forward to what the event represents and provides to the athletes, coaches, and school. The Mustangs were 11-2 in 2019 and again the Northern – Sierra League Champions. Damonte Ranch was the NIAA 4A Northern Sectional Finalist and will be led by QB Ethan Kulpin who had 1,921 yards with 16 TDs. The backfield will be blazing with rising Junior RB Ashton Hayes who rushed for 2,356 yards and 32 TDs. WR Nick Vargas had 11 TDs with 912 receiving yards. On the defense side, DG Ethan Kulpin had 119 tackles and MLB Carson Smith led the Mustangs with 147 tackles.
Home team and Host School Cathedral Catholic Dons will field a strong team behind Head Coach Sean Doyle. The Dons are a well prepared and coached team that ended their 2019 season as 8-3 Western Football League Champions. A new era will begin with QB Charlie Mirer, a rising junior to lead the Dons. RB Christian Hall and WR Colman Smith should generate offensive stats and MLB Lukas Otineru and FS Malachi Williams will put in the stops on the defensive side of the ball.
#SoCalvsReno – This game will be a compelling finale with the Home Crowd of Cathedral Catholic!
