The West Pasco Prowlers junior pee wee team, with the ball on the right, square off in a scrimmage Saturday against the East Tampa Bandits at Raymond James Stadium. Members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave the players encouragement. The Prowlers came up short, 6-0.

The West Pasco Prowlers participated last weekend in the seventh-annual Pop Warner Nationwide Kickoff hosted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The junior pee wee team participated in a scrimmage during halftime on the field at Raymond James Stadium while the cheerleaders added support from the sidelines.

"For all of us it was surreal to be down there on that field and to go through the tunnel that the Bucs come through," junior pee wee coach Carl Edwards said. "When the Bucs came out, they were tapping the kids on the helmet and saying a lot of encouraging things. I've never seen these kids so excited. It was really a cool experience for all of us to be in front of that many people."

Pop Warner is celebrating its 83rd season, which is started each year with the Nationwide Kickoff. The Prowlers lost this year's matchup to the East Tampa Bandits by a score of 6-0.
