Summit HS CB Donte Deayon (Fontana, CA) wrapped up his senior season last Saturday in a thrilling 24-17 win over Heritage in the CIF Championship Game. With the win, Summit finishes the 2011 campaign with a 13-1 record and captures a CIF Championship after falling in the title game just last year.

"It was an amazing feeling," he said. "You can't explain how I felt that day," he added.

"It was a good game," he stated. "They came out strong and were very physical, but we were too. We got out early, went up 10-0, and then they scored. The atmosphere was amazing. Just being there with all the fans made it feel like a championship game."

"Losing in the championship game last year motivated us all off-season," said Deayon. "We had to start lifting the week after we lost. We thought about it all off-season."

The difference between the 2010 team and the 2011 team? Leadership.

"We didn't have the leadership or the character last year," he said. "We harped on showing good character all off-season and not being about just one individual. It was all about the team."

"We wanted to show the younger guys the way to go," said Deayon. "We didn't have anyone to show us, so we knew we needed to show them that it was all about the team and not the individual."

Summit HS has only been open for six years. Deayon and his teammates have left a legacy that will carry on for years to come.

"We've only been open for six years," he said. "We were the first to win a League Championship, CIF Championship, and also the first to have six shutouts on the season."

"I played well in the championship game," he said. "I had a lot of tackles on defense, couple carries, but the biggest was the kick return early in the fourth quarter. I got it down to their 40 and we scored on that drive."

With team success also comes individual recognition for Donte Deayon. He was just recently named the All-League MVP on defense and the All-CIF MVP as well.

"It's pretty nice to have people recognize the things I've done at Summit," he said. "I don't really care about those type of things, but they're nice to get."

The future Bronco says he'll rest up over Christmas Break and get right back to work after the next couple weeks.

"That's what I'm going to do," he said. "I'm going to rest up, recover a bit, and get right back to work after the break. I'm going to start lifting, try to put on some more weight, and that'll be my goal before going to Boise State."
