There was a time when off-season 7-on-7 events were not attended by everyone. Times have definitely changed!
Throughout the past decade, the four months between the end of the regular season and the beginning of spring has been occupied by 7-on-7 all-star programs with football prospects from all over the country competing nearly every weekend.
From California to Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Arizona, Nevada, and in every corner of the country, these programs take center stage with media and recruiting services flocking to these events to watch and get interviews.
While skeptics will continue to say that this is NOT real football, colleges across the country feel otherwise, and that’s why this Saturday and Sunday at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale will be overloaded with teams from all over the nation and fans coming to see the current and future stars of the gridiron.
While Battle Sports is known for uniforms and equipment, the company has now dominated the 7-on-7 industry, hosting these events and showcase tournaments across the country for athletes in the 10u, 12u, 14u, 15u and the 18 and under high school varsity teams. Battle7 tournament games are defined by the highest level of competition and the highest level of sportsmanship.
LOCAL TEAMS ARE READY
In the first decade of 7-on-7 tournaments you could not attend an event without a team from south Florida coming home with a first-place trophy. But times have changed and everyone in every football hotbed has athletes who are among the best in the country.
When play begins on Saturday afternoon for these high school standouts, south Florida will boast powerhouse DEFCON, Florida Stars, Hard Knocks, Miami Immortals, Miami Raw, South Florida Bless and a South Florida Express program that has long been the blueprint nationally – with athletes who are easily among the country’s best.
