For the second year in a row, Ryan has been awarded the Pop Warner Little Scholar Award. To receive this, you must have a grade point average of 96% or above(Ry's is 99- woo hoo),community service hours along with playing pop warner football. The kids and their families are invited up to Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots for a luncheon and then the award ceremony takes place. It's a huge honor and it's very hard to come by in this part of New England. It seems most of the awards are given to kids from Mass and RI...that's where the headquarters are ;) just sayin' Last year when we went, many names called were from that area. However, needless to say, I am one proud mama! Way to go Ry!
