A stunning sweep Sunday at the Junior All-American Football League's championship games capped off a very good year for the Hesperia Trojans.


"This is the first year Hesperia Trojans have had four teams playing in the conference championships," said Marisol Romano, one of the Trojans' board of directors. "Other years, we've had one."


The Trojans have a total of seven football teams, and thus a majority of them played for the chance to be conference champions Sunday at Oak Hills High School.


On the way to the championships, the teams have racked up impressive records: Junior Micro 1 were undefeated, 10-0; Micro 1 went 9-1; Junior Pee Wee 1 went 9-0 (and would have gone undefeated if they hadn't had to forfeit a game after their official paperwork was stolen); and Pee Wee 1 went 9-1.


It's been an especially sweet year for Pee Wee 1 team, which went 1-9 last year.


"We have a lot of talent this year," said Romano. "They're going to be a huge asset to high school football" programs in the coming years.


The long-running league includes about 240 kids, between its football and cheerleading programs, from ages 7 through 15. (The Trojans haven't just seen success on the football field: Their Junior Pee Wee Cheerleading squad took first place in their championships earlier this fall.)


"They want to come back to the organization" year after year, said Romano. "I think that's the biggest motivator that they get: the confidence that they get in the league."


The Hesperia Trojans Junior Micro won over Jurupa, 25-0; Micro 1 beat Rialto 27-19; Junior Pee Wee beat Apple Valley 42-0; and the Pee Wee team beat Cathedral City 28-0.
