Former Brainerd area resident Spencer Lofgren helped his Creeks Outlaws Pop Warner football team defeat the Hawaiian Gardens Warriors of California 24-0 in the Division II Pee Wee championship Friday in Orlando.
The 13-year-old seventh-grader, who now lives near Jacksonville, Fla., played wide receiver, cornerback and safety for the 16-0 Outlaws, who yielded only two touchdowns the entire season.
The 26-player squad was made up of fifth- through seventh-graders.
Lofgren, who attended Lowell Elementary School in Brainerd, is the grandson of Kathy and Randy Woodhouse of Brainerd and Ray and Donna Lofgren of Lake of the Woods.
The Outlaws defeated the Michigan City Wolves of Indiana 38-6 Saturday at the ESPN Wild World of Sports complex at Disney World. They beat the Ward 5 Warriors out of Washington, D.C., on Tuesday to advance to the championship game.
Lofgren’s parents are Jamie and Kayla Lofgren.
