From the Football Director’s chair:
Good morning, Pop Warner Nation!
We have an action packed weekend of football, including our own FPPW JPW-DIII team playing for the Southwest Regional Championship on Saturday, preceded by our own Vandegrift Vipers playing Friday in the Regional Semi-Final playoff game. (Both in San Antonio! See details, below.)
News on this past weekend’s 2014 SOUTHWEST REGION CALVO CONFERENCE SEMI-FINALS:
Congratulations to Coach Mike Draeken and his FPPW PW D1 football team on a tremendous season!
Note: Coach Draeken began this team in 2009…FPPW’s first season. He’s taken that Tiny Mite team through every age bracket from youngest to oldest. What an undertaking and accomplishment!
This past Saturday, they faced the perennial powerhouse Holy Cross Knights, but came up short in a hard fought battle, 19-8.
Please join me in congratulating Mike, Stephanie, the players and coaches! We are super proud of you!
Congratulations to Coach Falgout and his FPPW JPW-D3 football team! They are Southwest Region Calvo Champions!
They move on to their final playoff game, this Saturday evening, as they head back to San Antonio to battle for the Southwest Regional Championship! (The Southwest Region includes teams from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, New Mexico and Colorado.)
