South Bay's New Boys of Fall

This Pop Warner team from Campbell is going to Florida for the National Championship.

The 49ers and Raiders aren't giving the Bay Area fans much to cheer about on the field, but there is a team of youngsters out of Campbell that is hoping for folks to jump on their bandwagon.

The Campbell Bears Jr. Midgets,
a Pop Warner team, beat Carson City over the weekend. That means they will be headed to Disney World in Orlando in a couple weeks to compete in a national championship. It is the first time the team has made it this far.

It's a pretty impressive "get" to compete in Florida. There are 350 leagues across the country and only eight teams make it to the championship.   

The Bears are hoping to bring all 28 members with them to sunny Florida, but they need some community support in the form of money.

Most of the players are from families who can pay the $1,500 per child, but there are about 10-12 who need a little help.

Here are the numbers to call to make a donation: (408) 300-3181 or (408) 921-0705.
