In total, 50 football players and cheerleaders have qualified as a Pop Warner Academic All-American Scholar. To qualify, the child must have achieved a minimum of a 96% Grade Point Average in the preceding academic year! These children will be eligible for scholarships and other recognition at the local, regional, and national levels of Pop Warner.
Last season's Pop Warner National banquet was held in Boston (see photos). Hall of Famer Ben Coates, All-Pro Alfred Morris, and 1994 silver medalist Nancy Kerrigan were speakers at last year's banquet. Last season, Pop Warner awarded over $100,000.00 in scholarships to players and cheerleaders.
"This is what I love about Pop Warner. This is what sets us apart from any other youth sports league. Pop Warner understands that academics must be a child's number one priority", said Schumacher.
