LANGHORNE, PA (November 19, 2019) – Pop Warner Little Scholars, the nation’s oldest youth football, cheer and dance organization and the only one with established academic standards, today announced the six finalists for its 10th Annual National College Football Award. Established in 2010, the award recognizes a graduating senior who has made a real impact on the field, in the classroom and in his community.

The 2019 Award Finalists are:

Pop Warner’s young people look up to these players and we love to see that so many of them share our values and strive to set positive examples for the next generation of football players.”
