Berlin to Honor Pop Warner National Champs
(December 29, 2017) — The Town of Berlin will recognize the National Championship Junior Varsity Berlin Seahawks Pop Warner Football Team and their coaches at the Mayor and Council meeting on January 8th.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the Berlin Town Hall Council Chambers. The public is invited to attend.
The Junior Varsity Berlin Seahawks Pop Warner Football Team won the Division 3 Pop Warner Football National Championship in Orlando, FL in December. The team is organized under the leadership of Head Coach Jul Airey. The players, ages 10 to 13, traveled to Florida for the national championship games with the support of their friends and families.
“We are extremely proud of the team,” said Mayor Gee Williams. “They finished the season ranked number one nationally after winning a two-game championship series on Dec. 4th and Dec. 7, 2017 at ESPN Zone Stadium in Orlando,” he added.
“The Mayor and Council wish to honor these young athletes who at an early age are already leading by example,” Mayor Williams said. “They show all of us that although we choose to live in a small town, that does not mean we should limit our dreams and aspirations today, or in the future.”
