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.
