Dunville started his hockey career in 1972 as a midget all-star, added a high school Most Valuable Player award and a rewarding junior hockey season prior to being selected provincial senior hockey rookie of the year for 1976. He was the top scorer for four provincial hockey seasons, earned Most Valuable Pplayer designation on three occasions, and was named the most dedicated player on two occasions.
Captain of the Stephenville senior team for 10-straight years, his leadership both on and off the ice played a major role in the four league championships and the two Herder Memorial Trophies that the team won. In 1993 he paced Stephenville to an intermediate hockey championship.
