His dad was the coach. So I'm sure he had been coached up by him mostly.
We just had a lot of great players. none others, to my knowledge made it to the NFL, but probably college players.

I think it was just a perfect storm of coaches/players. I don't think the program is really anything special, I haven't followed it though.
San Jose has the best teams always, Oak Grove.

I looked online and that San Jose team (Oak Grove) plays in another league, do Pop Warner teams play against other youth football leagues?

Looking at the peninsula pop warner league, it seems as though Oakland is the team to beat. I don't think that San Jose team is in the peninsula pop warner league, check out the teams here; http://www.ppwls.com/associations.html

I now consider myself a Pop Warner Guru, NOT!

I am going to support the kids this year by going out to some games. The peninsula pop warner league is the league I am targeting this year. Any coaches or players from this league here on the WZ? If so let me know what you are doing this year so that I can come out and see the future of the NFL.

Check out the scores from last weeks pop warner games in the peninsula pop warner league here; http://www.ppwls.com/scores/2013/2013_jamboree.pdf

If you have or know a kid that plays post updates in this thread, I'm looking for the next Julian Edellman or Jerry Rice!

Considering that Pop Warner is the biggest kids football program in America, and almost every NFL player started playing the game young, its not really a surprise that 75% played.

Pop Warner is the biggest youth football program in America? I would have thought there were many other league's.

Pop Warner seems to be the best kept secret out there, you look at this thread and the lack of responses. I am excited about this league because I like the sport, so I am now following a few of the local teams. How aware are city's when it comes to PW? Do most people even know if their city has a Pop Warner team?

Sometimes Pop Warner is used (misused) as a generic term for "youth football". Pop Warner is not that big in the Bay Area or No Cal for that matter. There's Peninsula PW, which is mostly Peninsula/South Bay, and I think that's about it. There's a couple East Bay teams in that PW league, but by far more East Bay kids play in non-PW leagues, e.g. Diablo Valley Youth Football.

I could never play when I was a kid (In late 60's early 70's) they had ridiculously low weight limits. I would not consider myself more that average size until I hit High School, but I was always too heavy for Pop Warner or Jr All American. No tackle at the Jr High level where I lived either, played one year of flag in 6th grade, totally lame.
