Thanks to Trojan Nation - We Need You! Please Support Trojans Pop Warner Tiny Mites!
This fall the Trojans Tiny Mite football team has been part of an incredible pilot project organized by USA Football called Rookie Tackle. Our league, Hill Country Pop Warner, is the only Pop Warner league in the US to be a part of this program.
Pop Warner was so impressed with Hill Country Pop Warner’s Rookie Tackle teams and program that they invited 4 of our teams, including Trojans Tiny Mite, to come to Orlando, Florida to play exhibition games on the national championship field at the 2017 Pop Warner National Championships on December 2nd. They want us to demonstrate this new format for Pop Warner officials from around the country.
This is an unprecedented opportunity to represent our community on the national stage and the team is currently raising funds to make the trip possible.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
1. Friday, November 17th from 5pm to 9pm, come eat dinner at Chipotle on Anderson (2700 W. Anderson Lane, Suite 204) - show them this image (printed out or on your phone), and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to our Trojans Tiny Mite team for their trip to Orlando. Just screenshot the image below and show it when ordering (either printed out or on your phone). 2. Purchase a limited edition Nike Trojans Polo with all proceeds benefiting the Trojans Tiny Mite team for their trip. This is an exclusive run based on the popular 2017 Trojans Pop Warner Coaches Shirt. It’s the perfect holiday gift for the men in your family - for more info and to purchase see link in our bio.
Additional background on Rookie Tackle:
The goal of Rookie Tackle is to create a glide path into tackle football for youngsters to make it as fun, safe and simple as possible for them. By shrinking the field, lowering the number of players per side, modifying the rules, training the coaches on best practices, and making sure every player gets a taste of every position, the Rookie Tackle program has allowed our youngest players to get a fantastic first experience in football and to develop a love for the game.
Loved seeing Ricky Williams and Anderson’s Calhoon Field on the news this weekend. So proud of our community for making this great field happen. NWAAA is still working to collect funds to help pay for the lights that are being installed at the field next month. This will ensure the field is playable for more teams and events, such as Ricky’s football camp, throughout the year. You can donate to NWAAA using the link in our bio. #trojannation #trojanpride #community

More throwback pictures from @wheelerbreazeale’s Trojan Pop Warner days! #leadingtheway #trojannation🏈
This is not only a huge playoff weekend for the TPW family, it’s a big milestone weekend as well. Last night was the first time a Trojans Pop Warner alum, Wheeler Breazeale, played in a varsity game for Anderson. The kids from our first TPW team are now sophomores so as Cuatro Groos put it - we are really only at the very beginning of this process. Each year from here on out there will be more and more kids who first started wearing a Trojans jersey in elementary school, playing on Thursday and Friday nights for Anderson. This is the vision - that sense of small town community right here in NW Austin - that we all share. This ... is what Trojan Nation is really all about. Way to be a pioneer Wheeler - today we saw a lot of young men on the field who all hope to someday follow in your footsteps! #trojannation🏈 #community
And the Trojan playoff wins keep coming! JPW BLUE 7, Westlake 0! Way to go boys!
