The Pop Warner Little Panthers have decided to move from being organized by the Charlotte Optimist Club to being run by the Pop Warner National Presidential Model. What does this mean exactly? It means a lot of changes are coming for the 2015 Lake Norman Giants Football season including the opportunity to compete for the Pop Warner Super Bowl!
The Presidential Model will allow Pop Warner Little Panthers to be run by a board. Mike Newell, former President of the Lake Norman Giants, is the new President of the Pop Warner Little Panthers. Bryon Fields, of the Coul Oak Steelers, will be the new Vice President. Jeff Sullivan, of the Porter Ridge Ravens, will be the Football Commissioner and there will be a new board made up of one member from each association.
