ORLANDO, Fla. – Jacksonville is once again home to a Pop Warner Super Bowl champion.
The Westside Wildcats crushed the Oak Cliff Titans 40-0 on Friday to win the Division II Junior Pee Wee Super Bowl at Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando.
Naeem Burroughs had a pair of touchdowns, one on a 55-yard interception return and the other on an 11-yard pass from Rodney Townsend III. The Wildcats broke things open with a 19-point second quarter against the previously unbeaten team out of Dallas.
It was the second shutout in the tournament for Westside. It beat Brick City 19-0 in its first game on Dec. 7 and then Capital City 18-12 on Dec. 10.
It was the second championship in as many years for a Pop Warner team based out of Westside. Last season, Westside won the Division I championship with a 19-18 win over the West Jets out of Arizona.
