Frankford Chargers Advance to the Superbowl

The Frankford Chargers Midget football team is the three time Liberty Conference Football Champion, as well as the three time Eastern Region Pop Warner finalists and the 2008 Pop Warner National Champions.   On Saturday, November 27, the team won the Eastern regional championship game and will advance to the Pop Warner Super Bowl in Orlando, Florida.  The Super Bowl is an 8 region tournament to crown the National Champion.

From Jason Dawkins:

The Frankford Chargers has provided recreational activities for children since 1967. This year marks our 42nd year anniversary. Coaching our youth on football fundamentals and mentoring our young men and women to be decent citizens has made it exciting 42 years. Through our hard work and perseverance we won our first Pop Warner National championship in 2008, and have won multiple championships in football, cheerleading, basketball, and baseball throughout the years. Most of our youth go on to play for their high schools and colleges, and some even go as far as coaching community little league teams.

Rasheed Muhammad is the head coach, the win on Saturday November 27, 2010 in the Eastern Regional Championship was his 75th win in 7 seasons.  His overall record is 75-8-4.  He is the 3x Liberty Conference Champion and 3x Eastern Regional finalist.  Rasheed is a graduate of Frankford High School and a Frankford Charger’s Alumnus.

The Chargers need to raise $33,000 for this trip.  See their attached solicitation for donations.

Now can the Eagles be as good as the Chargers this year?
