Joe Protheroe ran for 138 yards and a touchdown in a token appearance, and the host Clayton Valley Charter High football team clinched the Diablo Valley Athletic League title outright with a 62-6 win over Mt. Diablo on Friday.

Protheroe carried just three times, including a 63-yard touchdown on his second carry that put him over the 2,000-yard mark for the season and shattered the school's single-season rushing record, finishing with 2,091 yards.

Clayton Valley (9-1, 5-0 DVAL) scored on every possession, with six players reaching the end zone. Tanner Wraa scored twice, on a 6-yard run that opened the scoring and a 50-yard pass from Mike Protheroe that gave the Eagles a 27-0 lead with 3:10 left in the first quarter.

The Eagles amassed 497 yards in total offense despite both coaches agreeing to a running clock from midway through the second quarter. Curtis Grant also scored twice for the Eagles, on runs of 3 and 47 yards.

Joe Protheroe came off the field after his final carry of 49 yards to the 5-yard line with a slight limp, but coach Tim Murphy said it was nothing more than a minor bruise.

The Red Devils (2-8, 0-5) avoided a shutout when Isaiah Barney outran Clayton Valley's defense for a 70-yard touchdown on the last offensive play of the game.

Barney finished with 108 yards on eight carries. Mt. Diablo had been held to 46 yards on the ground before that play.

Darneail Jenkins had nine catches for 59 yards for Mt. Diablo.
