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.
The Redwood City 49ers are in Junior Pee Wees Divison II and will play its first game on Saturday, Dec. 3.
