Five Pop Warner Participants Honored for Academic Achievement

MONTCLAIR, NJ - Five participants from the 2015 Montclair Recreation/Pop Warner Cheerleading & Football Program will be traveling to Orlando, Florida to be recognized for academic achievement. 

The following participants were added to the National Pop Warner All Academic team for maintaining a 96% GPA in the classroom last school year: fifth grader William Hoffman (Watchung school), sixth graders Gavin Gammon and Ryan Phariss (Mt. Hebron) and seventh graders Stephanie Webb and Ya’Nae Brown (Glenfield).

Brown and Webb are standout cheerleaders for the Bulldogs, who helped lead the Midget Cheerleading & Dance team to two first-place finishes in the Pop Warner Garden State and North Jersey League Competitions.

On the football side, Hoffman, Gammon and Phariss were main contributors on the Jr. Pee Wee and Pee Wee levels.

All recipients have been invited to receive their awards at the 56th Annual All-American Scholar Banquet, taking place on Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28 at the Disney Yacht club, in Orlando, FL.

Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. (PWLS) is the only national youth sports organization in America that requires its participants to perform adequately in the classroom before permitting them to play. Montclair Recreation/Pop Warner believes that the standards that have been set give our children a sense of responsibility and an appreciation for academics and athletics that will help them develop later on in life.

Registration for the 2016 season begins on Monday May 2 – to register, please visit the Bulldog; or register in-person at the Montclair Recreation office located at 205 Claremont Avenue, Montclair. For more information, please call Montclair Recreation at 973-509-4915.
