Aztecs fighting for Super Bowl bid tomorrow

These guys practice right across the street from our house:

The North Philadelphia Aztecs, whose 100-pound team won the 2004 Pop Warner Super Bowl at Disney World in Florida, have two teams just a game away from the 2007 Super Bowl series. They would have to win two games in Florida next month to gain a national championship, league officials said.

In addition, the Aztecs' "midget" girls' cheerleader squad will compete in the Pop Warner National Cheer and Dance Championships, also next month at Disney World.

Before getting a trip to Florida, the two Aztec teams face pivotal weekend games.

"I believe we are going to win. I'm going to make you believe you will win. I'm not going to quit, so you don't quit," coach Wayne Allen shouted to his team of 14- and 15-year-olds at an evening practice this week at Hunting Park, Ninth Street and Hunting Park Avenue.

Tomorrow, the Aztecs' 160-pound "midget" team will face the Marshall Heights Bisons of Washington, D.C., and the Aztecs' 120-pound "pee-wee" team will take on the Beacon House Falcons, also of Washington. Both games will be played at Toms River South High School in Toms River, N.J.
Good luck, Aztecs! Article link.

Hopefully both teams can bring home the hardware...but if one advances and Hunting Park has produced a plethora of athletic talent...I'm proud to be one...Marcus Godfrey (McClure, Roberto Clemente, Mastbaum, Temple University).

Go Aztecs!!!

Thanks for sharing.
