Dana Point Times
The Dana Hills High School football team hosted their annual Honor the Valor game on Thursday, Oct. 30. The Dolphins took the field wearing custom camouflage jerseys bearing the name of a military veteran on the back and, following the game against opponent San Juan Hills, presented the 63 veterans in attendance with their jerseys. Veterans and players also took part in a pre-game meal together.
In the two years since the event’s inception the 12th Man Club, a parent booster organization, and the Dolphins football program have raised more than $60,000 for local veteran support groups, including: Dana Point Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9934, Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group and the Laguna Niguel Military Support Committee.
