Local Pop Warner teams compete for top title

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It was great weather for football Saturday at Legion Stadium.

Local Pop Warner Division Champions competed against other teams from Raleigh and Virginia in the first round of playoffs.

Jacksonville Storm Quarterback Jai’kei Taylor says his favorite part about playing football is meeting new people.

“We got to keep on focusing on the task at hand and just do what the coaches tell us to do,” Taylor said.

If they win, they will move on to Regionals in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Trot Nixon also made an appearance during some of the games.
