Third annual Crowning of the Champions presented by Under Armour honor South Florida’s brightest youth football stars.

Miramar, FL – The Miami Dolphins hosted the 3rd annual Crowning of the Champions presented by Under Armour at the Miramar Cultural Center in Miramar, FL. In a red-carpet style ceremony, the Miami Dolphins in collaboration with Generation Nexxt, honored South Florida’s brightest youth football stars from some of the area’s most popular youth leagues.

“The event is getting bigger and bigger every year. We appreciate the growth of everybody who is following and celebrating the youth of South Florida,” Generation Nexxt Co-Founder Jonah Woullard said. “It’s huge that the kids can have a platform where they can see themselves on television and be appreciated for all the hard work they put in.”

32 cities were represented, including the top teams from Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County, with a variety of different awards being handed out to 2012’s top performers, including the best athletes, coaching staffs and squads from six different youth football leagues (SFYFL, AYFL, GMPW, FYFL, NYFL, MXYFL).

The event started with the red carpet ceremony, as the nominated athletes came dressed to impress and walked down the carpet before they entered the event. The award show commenced in front of a capacity crowd with various presenters coming to the stage to honor the athletes.

Additionally, Miami Dolphins Youth Programs Director Twan Russell and Dolphins cheerleaders presented and handed out awards to the athletes. The organization presented some of their own distinct awards, such as the Presidential Community Service Award, which honored the board of directors of each youth football league.

“The student athletes worked really hard all year to get to this point,” Russell said. “It’s great to see them rewarded for all their effort, and I’m happy to see the kids get recognized. I look forward to seeing this event grow over the next few years.”

The winners came from a variety of different cities and areas of South Florida, as everything from top cheerleading squad, to top coaching staff and best youth player was awarded.

The awards represented a year full of hard work and dedication paying off for the student athletes. It will certainly be an event the kids will never forget.
