Peko brothers Domata Jr. and Joseph have been able to depend and learn from their father Domata Sr., a defenseman in the NFL, for 15 years. They’ve been on the field in NFL stadiums before games, watching, listening, trying to understand what it takes to be successful.
Now they’re capitalizing on those lessons at Calabasas High, where Domata Jr. is a 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior defensive end and Joseph is a 6-foot, 245-pound freshman lineman.
Domata Sr., who was born in Whittier and later lived in Samoa, was an assistant coach at Calabasas in 2019 until a late signing with the Baltimore Ravens.
Known in Calabasas as “Baby Peko,” Joseph is built similar to his father, who weighs 6-3, 325 pounds.
Being able to see pros up close helps both boys understand how much hard work and focus it takes to reach the highest level.
