The 5th Annual Pop Warner Panini Classic Highlights a Most Super Saturday

February 4, 2012

INDIANAPOLISNFL rookie sensations Andy Dalton and Von Miller were joined by record-setting University of Houston quarterback Case Keenum in headlining the 5th Annual Pop Warner Panini Classic skills clinic on Saturday, lending undeniable star power to an event that benefited the Northern Indiana Pop Warner organization.

Dalton, Miller and Keenum spent quality time with more than 100 Pop Warner football players, running them through a gauntlet of hands-on drills and imparting pearls of pigskin and life wisdom that will no doubt enrich hundreds of lives long after Super Bowl XLVI leaves town.

The kids also received special Panini America prints signed by each player and memories sure to last a lifetime.

You’ll find a quick gallery of some of the day’s highlights below, as well as images from Friday night’s activities in the Panini America booth, which included a free autograph signing from Indianapolis Colts defensive end Robert Mathis and a special live broadcast from Cardboard Connection Radio’s Doug Cataldo and Rob Bertrand.

We’ll have tons of additional coverage of the 5th Annual Pop Warner Panini Classic in the coming days here on The Knight’s Lance, including exclusive video, player interviews and more.
