Attached are a few pictures from the 4/1/14 trip to Legislative Hall. The last picture is in Governor Markell's office. Governor Markell and State Rep Tim Dukes are standing in the back. Some of these pictures above were on Tim Dukes facebook page this morning. Our group received a tour of Legislative Hall. The children went into the House Chamber, Senate Chamber and Joint Finance Meeting Room. We sat in the balcony while afternoon session began and particpated in saying The Pledge of Allegiance and prayer. Both teams were then announced on the floor by Tim Dukes for their accomplishments and each one spoke their full name into the microphone to be recorded into the state archives. We then were escorted to Governor Markell's office where we had a private meet and greet session. He discussed the season's accomplishments with both teams and answered many questions they had. Before we left, Gov Markell presented both teams with a Governor's State Tribute for their accomplishments. It was a great day Delmar Pop Warner!

WHY THERE ARE NO PERSONAL STATISTICS IN POP WARNER
Pop Warner exists to use football, cheerleading, dance and a respect for education to develop strong, smart, responsible, healthy young men and women. We give them experiences that build their appreciation for and understanding of leadership, teamwork, and discipline.
While individual statistics may be more common, particularly among older football players, Pop Warner only recognizes the athletic accomplishments of the team, not the individual. We don't track personal tallies of touchdowns or yards rushing per game. We don't count sacks or blocked kicks. We applaud the athletic efforts of the team to reinforce the importance of teamwork, with each member.
We don't try to build stars. We don't want to over-inflate a young ego, nor do we want to risk injuring the self-esteem of a young person. Whether our kids have good days or bad, they are still an integral part of our team…and always will be.
