Valley Springs youth football player JoJo Dockett got a small taste of the big time. Dockett, who plays for the Calaveras Jr. Reds, was selected to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl in Arlington Texas. Dockett, who was the only player selected from Northern California, played the game inside AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys.
On Monday, Dockett, who played on the 11-12-year-old team, got to suit up and made the most of his opportunity. He was on the receiving end of a 57-yard touchdown pass for one of the game’s top plays. Dockett scored his team’s only touchdown in a 14-7 loss.
