6th Graders Robby Riggs & Cameron Jones awarded at annual Pop Warner Scholastic Banquet
On Saturday, May 25, 2013, the 53rd Annual Pop Warner Scholastic Banquet was held at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston,Massachusetts. The Scholastic Banquet is a fun filled evening wherein Pop Warner honors all of its All-American scholars from across the country and presents scholar-athletes with scholarships, recognizes notable award winners who serve as role models for participants, and congratulates the top volunteers in each region. Annually, there are approximately 400,000 participants nationwide in Pop Warner (football and cheerleading).
This special night draws approximately 2,000 people from across the country. At this year’s event, two very deserving young men from New Bridge Middle School were in attendance: Mr. Robby Riggs and Mr. Cameron Jones. Robby was selected as a 1st-Team Scholastic All-American and was also presented with a scholarship to be used at any college or university he may attend in the future. Cameron was selected as a 2nd-Team Scholastic All-American. Both of these young men play football for Jacksonville Storm of the Eastern NC League in the Pop Warner Mid-South Region.
Over the course of the weekend, both Robby and Cameron were able to tour the city of Boston which included events like taking in a Red Sox baseball game at historic Fenway Park, touring Quincy Market and the Boston Harbor, as well as enjoying the cities fine cuisine that included items like clam chowder or as the locals call it...”chowdah” and a”Fenway Dog” at the ballpark.
Cameron Jones is the eldest son of Bart and Joy Jones who accompanied Cameron on this prestigious trip. Robby Riggs is the son of Scott and Michele Riggs. Robby and his Dad really enjoyed their “guys’ weekend” in Boston.
Congratulations again to Cameron and Robby!
