ROMEOVILLE, Ill. (WIFR) - The Rockford Renegades Jr. Pee Wee team clinched the state championship Saturday winning 6-0.
The team went undefeated all season and have qualified to play in the Pop Warner Super Bowl in Orlando, Florida. The championships are December 2-9 and will be televised on ESPN.
Pop Warner is a scholar program, so not only do the kids have to work hard on the field, they have to maintain good grades in the classroom to be eligible to play.
The team, headed by Head Coach Tyrone Thomas, is working on fundraising efforts to ensure all the players and parents can make it to Orlando.
