The Rockets Midgets remain unbeaten on the year under Coach Chris Hampson and have only given up six points all season.
This is the first Rockets squad to advance to the national championships.
In 2001, the South Brevard Cougars, a forerunner of the Rockets, won the national Pop Warner Jr. Midgets division title by beating the Gilroy, Calif. Browns
In 2010, the Merritt Island Mustangs fell in the Jr. Midgets division national championship game to the Far West, Ariz. Jets.
