Pop Warner Team Used Bounties: An inquiry is underway into whether a California youth football team of 10- and 11-year-olds was offering cash bounties for knocking opponents out of games. The Orange County Register reported Sept. 21 that two coaches of the Tustin Junior Pee Wee Red Cobras offered players cash, usually between $20 and $50, for big hits and knocking opponents out of games. One of the players targeted with a bounty, an 11-year-old running back from the Santa Margarita Stallions, suffered a concussion while playing against the Red Cobras last November. "This kid speared him. Hit him right in the head," the father of the injured player said.
