Montclair Recreation Pee Wee Football Players Patrick Caughey, Jeffery Keys and Midget Football Player Julian Zincani were selected to the 2015 Eastern Region All Academic team for maintaining a 97% or better GPA in the classroom in the 2014 school year in grades 5-8.
The young men and their families are invited to attend an eastern region luncheon to receive their awards on Saturday March 21, in Woodcliff Lake, NJ.
Caughey and Keys were also key contributors all season long for the North Jersey Pop Warner Pee Wee Champions Montclair Bulldogs (10-2). In addition, Zincani was a dominant lineman for the Montclair Bulldog Midget football team that finished in second place in the North Jersey Pop Warner Championships.
The three football players were some of the 200 winners that were selected from over 1,411 applicants throughout the Pop Warner Eastern Region. Montclair’s region comprises Pop Warner teams from upstate NY, New York City, Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Washington D.C.
This marks the second year in a row that Montclair Recreation/Pop Warner has submitted the most qualified applicants (15) who have maintained a 97% or better GPA in the classroom in 2014, throughout the entire North Jersey Pop Warner of Football and Cheerleading league.
The 2015 Pop Warner Eastern Region All Academic team is now posted on the eastern region website.
