2013 Crowning of the Champions

3rd Annual Miami Dolphins Crowning of the Champions

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 & NBC6, honored South Florida’s brightest youth athletes 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 by age groups, scholar athletes, coaching staffs and cheer squads from six different youth football leagues (American Youth Football League, South Florida Youth Football League, Greater Miami-Dade Pop Warner, Florida Youth Football League, National Youth Football League, and Miami-Dade Xtreme Youth Football League).

The event started with the red carpet ceremony, as the nominated athletes came dressed to impress and walked down the red carpet while being filmed by television cameras, 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.

Exciting music performances from International Music Group’s Whyl ChylDyme PieceMarcoTeam Phlyte and dance team, Live In Color set the tone for an entertaining ESPY type of evening.

Community partners such as the Orange Bowl Committee honored NFL veteran, Kennard Cox with a Community Impact Award. Also, other community partners such as Dr. Chen of Tooth Tales, Mentoring Valuable Protégés, Flo-Fitness Gym, Caribbean Pageantry, Specialty Orthopedic Center, and International Music Group presented awards to various teams, cheer squads and student athletes.

Additionally, Miami Dolphins Youth Programs DirectorTwan Russell and Dolphins cheerleaders presented and handed out 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,” Russellsaid. “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.”
