The Pop Warner team from Westport won their Super Bowl in Florida on Friday. The Westport Patriots, 24 Westport and Mt. Winans boys between the ages of 11 and 14, beat the Suncoast Bucs, 27-8, in at the Disney sports complex in Orlando, winning the Pop Warner Super Bowl, Midget division.
"The team has overcome many obstacles including the lack of a football field, training equipment, uniforms, and storage and meeting facilities," said a handout from the team. "Many Westport Patriots live in difficult environments and for most of these boys and girls, it was the first time that they traveled out of the area."
The team is coached by Marty Williams, Westport resident and former college player, along with six other volunteers.
Baltimore City paid for the team to travel by bus to Orlando and Turner Development Group provided funds for uniforms, travel and other team expenses.
