DEFCON South Florida Stacked With Elite Talent

When it comes to the off-season 7-on-7 season, nobody has to tell you how important it has become.

What began in south Florida well over a decade ago has now morphed into a national craze – with impressive talent from coast-to-coast.

What once featured a handful of post-season teams is now something that is being played every weekend from south Florida to California and everywhere in between.

With prize money, trophies, and bragging rights at stake for these sponsored programs who must travel, be transported, eat and stay in hotels, this is as competitive as you get.

What this time of year is all about for these young men and coaches is bringing the best of the best together, and one of the teams who has done just that is coach Chris Ewald and DEFCON South Florida.
