RUHS Hosts Pop Warner Championship

The Southern California Falcons and the Arizona Grand Snakes face off to see who will represent the region in the national playoffs.

The UCLA-USC crosstown match is not the only "Big Game" today, as a regional Pop Warner football match could send a South Los Angeles team to the national championships.

The Southern California Falcons face the Arizona Grand Snakes for a playoff berth today at Redondo Union High School.

A Falcons team official said the team includes boys who come from poor neighborhoods and broken families. "My heart breaks at some of the things they've faced in their personal lives," Keith Johnson said.

The squad is "a tight-knit group of underprivileged youth from South Los Angeles who are beating the odds, overcoming tremendous personal adversities to position themselves to compete against the best on a national level."

The 4 p.m. kickoff is at 800 Diamond St. in Redondo Beach. The winner goes on to represent the region at the national Pop Warner Championship game at Walt Disney World in Florida.
