Cal High QB honored as San Ramon Valley's best

Cameron Owen receives Pete Villa Award from Danville Rotary Club

California High senior quarterback Cameron Owen was recently recognized as the San Ramon Valley's top high school football player in 2013, receiving the Danville Rotary Club's annual Pete Villa Award at a ceremony last month.

Owen helped guide the Grizzlies (11-3 overall) to an undefeated mark in league play and a deep postseason run that saw Cal High make it all the way to the North Coast Section Division I championship game – a 49-17 loss to De La Salle High on Dec. 7.

Owen was one of 12 San Ramon Valley Unified School District football stars nominated by their athletic directors and coaches for the award, which is named for Thunderbirds youth football program founder Pete Villa.

The other 2013 nominees were Blake Bierwith and Mario Diaz from Cal High; Afolabi Adeoti, Kieffer Longson and Michael Pangelinan from Doughtery Valley High; Brendan Landman, Matt Rood and Marco Zamora from Monte Vista High; and Dom Arotzarena, Marcus de la Pena and Matt Winaker from San Ramon Valley High.

The award was presented to Owen at a luncheon Dec. 16.
