Ready to Pop someone
As the nation’s oldest youth football organization, Pop Warner, gets set for its 87th season, Ormond Beach players have spent countless hours on the field preparing for better seasons and grades than last year.
“We are very excited about our upcoming season as our numbers across the organization have increased tremendously,” said Brandon Campbell, the program’s president. “We are solid within each level with strong returning players and talented new players. With a local game schedule (Volusia, Brevard and Flagler counties), we hope to see a lot of community support.”
The Sandcrabs were leaders within the Pop Warner National Organization, with almost 50 athletes who qualified as All-American Scholastic award winners last year. They have set goals to increase that number to see more scholarship opportunities this year.
All of the teams will play at their set times on Saturdays. The Tiny-Mites will play at 9 a.m.; Mitey-Mites, 10:15.; Jr. Pee Wee, 11:30; Pee Wee, 1:30 p.m.; Jr. Midget, 3:30 p.m. and Unilimited, 5:30 p.m. For the full schedule, see the box to the right of the picture above.
