The Everett Crimson Tide Pop Warner 8U team won a national championship with an undefeated season.
“We got off to a great start with a 45-yard touchdown run by Amari Ssembitto on the first drive of the game, and Ty Fiore’s touchdown put us on top again in the 4th quarter,” Head Coach Mel Fiore said. “We never looked back – a pair of touchdowns by Jerai Rogers and an interception by Patrick Walsh helped seal it.”
They celebrated their win by receiving championship rings, T-shirts and plaques at Village Bar & Grille on Sunday. The only Everett team to win the league, they went 10-0 in the National League, outscoring opposing teams 188 to 39, with six shutouts during their fall season.
“It was a great year for the kids,” Fiore said on Tuesday.
