The West Volusia Wolves claimed the Southeast United States Pop Warner Junior Midget championship Saturday, Nov. 25, and are now gunning for the Super Bowl championship.
The Wolves, composed of players 10-14, captured the Southeast crown in St. Cloud with a solid whipping of the CFL Outlaws of Jacksonville, with great play on both sides of the ball.
Even though the Wolves won handily on the field, they are still in need of off-the-field assistance. Wolves head coach Cameron Robinson, assistant principal at Galaxy Middle School in Deltona, points out that the team needs $15,000 to make the trip to the Super Bowl.
The cost is $750 per player, which covers the various fees and the cost of the hotel, as well as incidental needs during the stay.
Anyone interested in giving the individual Wolves players a boost should contact Robinson as soon as possible by calling 386-846-8148 or by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be 64 teams gathering at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports, but the Wolves are interested only in the other seven teams that will join them in the Junior Midget Division. At this writing, the pairings were not available.
The Wolves are ticketed for their first game Saturday, Dec. 1, and with a victory, they will return to the field Tuesday, Dec. 4. The times for kickoffs have yet to be announced.
The national championship game is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 7, to be aired on ESPN3 with the time for the Junior Midgets, as well as the Junior Pee Wee, Pee Wee, and Midgets also slated for that day.
