Youth football team to play in national championship tourney

A local football team will play for a national championship.

The Castle Rock Knights Pop Warner JV team (seventh through ninth grade) will be representing Rocky Mountain Pop Warner at the Pop Warner National Championship Tournament in Orlando, Florida. Tournament games will be played between Dec. 2 and 8.

The Knights (9-2) won the Southwest Regional Championship game in San Antonio on Nov. 18, defeating Mercedes (Texas) 28-0. Two weeks earlier, the Knights defeated the Parker Wolfpack 19-18 to win the Pop Warner Division II state championship.

A page has been set up on gofundme.com to help raise the nearly $34,000 it will cost for the Knights to make the Orlando trip. To help, go to www.gofundme.com/castlerock-knights

Players from the Knights will feed into the Douglas County Huskies and the Castle View Sabercats football programs over the next one to three years. The Castle Rock Knights are coached by Kurt Klopfenstein, Lorenzo Urrutia, Will Parker, Dennis Johnson, and Steve Madonia.

In addition to the JV team's success, the Knights' Pee Wee squad, comprising sixth- and seventh-graders, also had a stellar season. The team won seven straight games and claimed the Southwest Regional Pee Wee crown in San Antonio on Nov. 18.
