Pop Warner football was named after the legendary coach who began his career way back in 1895. Warner’s first coaching job was at the University of Georgia, and his 1896 team went undefeated. Later, he coached at the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania where he tutored the great Jim Thorpe. He and Thorpe put Carlisle on the map. Warner than moved on to the University of Pittsburgh where he developed three undefeated teams, and then to Stanford, where he coached from 1924 to 1932. They won the Rose Bowl in 1928.
