Jake Nominated for Pop Warner All-American Scholar Program and Receives 5th Grade Math Award
Each year, the most academically accomplished Pop Warner kids compete for Academic All-American status. This process begins at the association level and up through each of the eight Pop Warner regions to the national level. In 2004, approximately 380,000 kids participated in Pop Warner. As our numbers once again reached record levels, 276 First Team members, over 4,200 Second Team members and 900 Honorable Mention scholars were named as Academic All-Americans at the National Level for 2004-2005.
The PWLS All-American Program requires a minimum 96% grade point average to apply for All-American status. After the applications have been processed, Pop Warner determines National First Team All-Americans (35 football, 25 cheer per grade), National Second Team All-Americans and National Honorable Mention Scholars.
The criteria are as follows:
- Currently be in 5th Grade or higher for the Pop Warner Season
- Have a 96% Grade Point Average (GPA) from your previous school year's report card.
- Have a Complete Full-Year's Report Card from your previous school year to prove eligibility
Wednesday, he received the 5th Grade Math Award for his school.
Straight A student. Loves football and skiing. Never swears, ever (I have no idea where this comes from because I am a Arizona Cardinals fan and he goes to games with me). Loves the Suns, Cards, and ASU.
The only negatives I can think of are that he beats the crap out of his brother and has an incredibly sarcastic sense of humor. And based on the way I have raised him, he gets both of those traits from me.
I am pretty proud of the Redhead.

YAY! Smart guys always get the best looking girls. My mom had 5 children plus 8 more step children. One day she went into Will's room and saw all kinds of acheivement awards. AND she said "What are these? My children never got any of these before. HA! That is why I had to marry my husband. Because he is sooooo smart! You must be very good parents to have children like this! YAY!
