Pop Warner Tigers play on Sunday in San Jose

Staff Reports

The Douglas Tigers Pop Warner junior pee division football team is 11-0 and looking for one more win Sunday when the Best of the West Championships are held in San Jose, Calif.

Douglas will be playing the Santa Cruz Sea Lions at Andrew High School. The Pacific Northwest Region junior pee wee champion Tigers had their scheduled game changed after the Arizona state champion decided not to travel to Northern California, according the coach Jon Grisell.

“This Santa Cruz team was the runner-up in their region and they’re pretty good,” Grisell said. “They got hot in the playoffs and beat two good teams, so we’re expecting a tough game, especially down there close to their home.”

The Tigers defeated the Bay Cities Bulldogs 43-0 to win their region title on Nov. 22 in Reno. Even snow in Carson Valley earlier this week has done nothing to dampen their motivation, Grisell noted.

“This is a good group of kids and they’re ready to go,” he said on Thursday. “We practiced in the gym the last two nights and they were fired up. We had to hold them back.”
