This year’s Mission Viejo team went undefeated en route to a second consecutive division title after beating Vista Murrieta, 21-14, on the road in the title game.

The Diablos were then given a berth in the Division 1AA state title bracket, where they beat Helix, 32-28, at home before winning the state title with a dominant 24-0 effort over Bellarmine Prep at Sacramento State.

Quarterback Brock Johnson was named CIF West Valley Division MVP and the Register’s Football Player of the Year.
