Kauai Pop Warner Football League president Teddy Arroyo said in some places in Asia, when you give birth, you are already one year old.

He joked about how long Pop Warner football has been in existence on Kauai, and the growth of the program that focuses on leadership and scholastics in addition to teaching the game of football. He was joined by Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. and Council Chair Mel Rapozo in welcoming players, parents, and fans to the 57th year of Pop Warner football.

The welcome included bestowing honors to the 2017 national scholar-athletes, Kauai volunteers of the Year, Randi Levinthol and Ginny Agena, and the national volunteer, Lani Cummings of the Kapaa Eagles. Lance Miyao was honored for his years behind the clock, keeping track of countless number of football games.

That said, the KPWFL welcomed the 2018 season with a full slate of football games starting with flag, and ending with a junior varsity matchup at Hanapepe Stadium.

    Prior to this date, 1929-1960, Kauai was just in a boom or feeling the effects of the industrial revolution. Cars, radios, washing machines, sewing machines. No time for pop Warner.
