The Danbury Trojans youth football team is headed to the Nationals. This is the first time in over 20 years that the 12U team has been eligible to compete in the Pop-Warner Football National Championship. The undefeated team outscored opponents 320-56 and will face off against 7 of the best teams in the nation for the right to claim the title of national champs. Mayor Joe Cavo helped secure a $2,500 grant for the team from the Danbury Education Foundation. 21 athletes will be traveling to Florida to participate. The Danbury Athletic Youth Organization has raised more than $17,000 toward their $45,000 GoFundMe goal with 161 donations.
