A 6-foot-5, 265-pound former New Jersey high school football player has admitted kicking his girlfriend's 9-pound miniature dachshund to death.  

Donovan "Donny'' Allieri pleaded guilty to animal cruelty, theft and other charges Thursday.     

The 19-year-old admitted he went to his now-ex-girlfriend's home in Boonton Township in June 2010 and kicked the dog, one day after "Pepper'' bit him.     

He also admitted he joined his girlfriend in stealing jewelry from her mother.     

The Daily Record of Parsippany reports the Morris County Prosecutor's Office has recommended that Allieri be sentenced in September to up to 364 days in the county jail, probation and restitution of $3,293.     

Allieri had signed to play football for Villanova University before the incident.
