I am very proud of my son and Palo Alto Knights Varsity team. The players are very good in playing as a team. They have a great system for teaching them football, teamwork and sportmanship. Go knights continue to do well

My son's name is Dominic Dawkins not Dominique Dawkins. He was also the captain of the Knights' defense.

What a terrific job! I sure hope that Mike Piha and his fine assistant coaches will stay coaching long enough to let my kid learn from them. Keep up the good work.

Wow! Way to go boys. We have a talented group of kids on this team, and AWESOME coaches. I want to give a big shot out to our coaching staff! With out you, I truly believe our kids wouldn't be where they are today!

I have had the awesome pleasure to be a part of the Knights family for five years AND to experience the great... no, magnificent coaching and leadership skills of Mr. Mike Piha for five straight years. Danny, you are incredibly great, smart and professional as well! And to the all of the other coaches, you guys are truly the "best," and I'm not just saying that as fluff! I feel blessed and happy that I made the right move for my sons to come to the Knights organization years ago. Immediately, I noticed a difference in the coaching staff, and I just want to applaud you.

Boys! Enjoy the season and remember this forever!

Morris, Justin and Jayshawn definitely will!!!

Go Knights!!

Congrats to the Knights coaching staff for taking an obvious talented bunch of kids and coaching them to greatness.

I wish that I had that kind of staff at my organization. Congrats Mike, Danny, Warren, Jason, Rubin, and Jeff. Well done boys.

GREAT JOB!!! Team work, your team work is paying off. To be apart of an organization/team that respects, values and recognizes the most important part of a team, PEOPLE, is a blessing. Learning the things that will advance you in the game AND in life is unmeasurable. To watch you is a great thing because you put yourself in it. Thank you for showing me, you, because there's always something else I could be doing.


Boys-Remember to keep up your determination and perseverance. Be the best you can by doing the best you can.

Tony the Tiger says it best, They’re Grrrrrrrreat!
