The rose 'Pop Warner' was named for A.J. Pop Warner, one of the most beloved of all rosarians in the South Central District, not for the football coach. The rose was presented to Pop at the South Central District at the 2001 Convention in Beaumont, Texas. It had been Eddie Edward's intention that if this rose was as good as he expected it to be, that he would name it for Pop.
