Pop Warner: Redwood City 49ers win regional title

The team travels to Florida this week

By Michelle M. Amirsehhi, parent of a player.

The Redwood City 49ers Junior Pee Wees won the Pop Warner football Pacific Northwest Regional Championship in the 10-11 age group on Saturday at Woodside High School and will travel this week to Orlando, Florida, to compete for the national championship.

The 49ers defeated the Evergreen Bulldogs of Vancouver, Washington, 30-0.

The 49ers are the second local Pop Warner team that is traveling to the nationals. The Menlo-Atherton Vikings Pee Wees won the regional title Saturday in its age group (11-12).

This team has accomplished so much from the rigorous training days back in August.

Two Woodside Elementary students are on this championship team. Ryan Amirsehhi is in the fifth grade and Andre Crooks is in the seventh grade.

Daisy: I saw much of this game, while waiting fir the MA game that followed. Don't know what you're complaining about. RWC has a very good football team and Coach Lockett has a disciplined team.

You shared your displeasure with the coach and the officials yet offer no reason why you do so.

So unless you can elaborate, we'll all chalk it up as sour grapes - blaming the refs when losing to a superior team 30-0 is pathetic.

Congrats to RWC, good luck in Florida!

And the same to the Menlo Atherton Vikings PeeWee team (11-12 yr olds) also winging to Orlando to play for a national championship Web Link
