TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - One Pee Wee Football Team is left standing in the Big Bend, the Chairs-Capitola Eagles.

After winning a regional title this past weekend, the guys are off to Nationals.

They are a great group made up of 11-12 and 13 year olds and are unbeaten on the year and ready to take on Disney.

The guys have been working hard on and off the field, deserving of this opportunity, and they are ready to represent this community.

Tremaine Hughes said that "Everybody is doing it for everyone else, from the parents and the association to the coaches, everybody is out here, really getting the work in with everybody else, we have traveled over 2200 miles, so for us to do all of those things and still be here, working hard together it's really about the group."

Tremaine Hughes Jr. also commented.

"This is my last season going to be able to play for Pop Warner as well as with my dad being the coach," he said, "so you know it's really good to go out on a good note, we won't be able to have this team ever again, so we need to take advantage of this while we can."

And the guys they need your help.

A GoFundMe account has been set up under the Chaires Eagles Superbowl Trip, so go donate, and their next game is set for December 3.
