7-on-7 football is considered a pastime.
This weekend, however, the notion will be disproved.
For a majority of players, coaches and fans, 7-on-7 is simply seen as something to occupy time during the offseason. It allows for camaraderie to be forged and conditioning to take place, but holds little value and often is more of a glorified practice than actual competition.
The EndZone 70n7 Texas Showcase Tournament is not typical 7-on-7, though.
Some of the sport’s elite 7-on-7 squads will descend on The Woodlands’ Gosling Sports Field for the benchmark event, looking to emerge with tournament’s prestigious championship.
A qualifier for the upcoming the National 7v7 Football Association National Championship, the two-day competition begins with pool play Saturday before bracket play decides the winners of the 15U and 18U divisions.
Established by Lavalius Gordon — a former athlete, coach and current scout — and Clay Mack — a trainer and coach — EndZone 7on7 has quickly grown into a premier destination for athletes to hone their skills in an ultra competitive environment, allowing them to take their skills to the next level.
And the EndZone 7on7 Texas Showcase Tournament will put the philosophy on full display.
Fans unable to attend the event can watch live thanks to a partnership between EndZone 7on7, TexasHSfootball.com and FiteTV.
