FAIRFIELD, Conn. — The Fairfield Giants 10U have been crowned the Division III Pop Warner National Champions with 21 -12 victory over the Kansas City Titans last month.
The members of the Fairfield Giants 10U team boarded a bus headed to Worcester, Mass., on the day after Thanksgiving to face off against the Lee’s Summit Titans of Kansas City, Mo., in the Division III Pop Warner National Championship game.
The boys left Connecticut as state and regional champions, and came home the next afternoon as National Champions of Pop Warner's 10U Unlimited Weight Division, beating the previously undefeated Titan team.
The victory capped the teams perfect 12-0 season, which began Aug. 1st in the midsummer's heat at Sullivan Field.
"This is quite an accomplishment for a special group of young men. It goes to show you what commitment, hard work and discipline can accomplish when you are bound together with one mind, one heart and as one team," said coach Mark Cirilli.
