This was a great email to receive from Clark Ray (a candidate for DC Council at large seat). He writes:

“One of my proudest moments at DPR was to negotiate DPR’s Charter into the Pop Warner Football League. It gave our young athletes the chance to show off their abilities on a National level. Today I congratulate the DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) youth football team from Watkins Recreation Center, the Hornets, who became the first team in DPR history to win the coveted Pop Warner Division I Pee Wee National Football Championships. The Hornets defeated the Florida City Razorbacks from Miami, Florida with a final score of 22-8 at Disney’s Wide World of Sports in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. I hope this championship is the first of many more to follow.

All the people of the City should be proud of these young people who represented us well and came home winners!”

Congrats to the Hornets. DC represent!
