While much of the 7-on-7 spotlight this off-season has been taken by some of the traditional off-season powerhouses, this year a new name has popped into the competitive landscape.
Coach “Fresh” and his second year Power7United has turned heads so far this winter with championships at the Coach Mac 15 and Under event as well as taking home the varsity title at Fort Lauderdale’s Eat Speed event and the Shook Tournament in Las Vegas.
With several tournaments left on the schedule, this team boasts some impressive south Florida athletes from throughout the talented Miami-Dade and Broward County areas.
“When you put together a group of gifted athletes who want to compete and play hard, this is results you get,” Coach Fresh explained. “We have only gotten started as this team will be headed to a number of cities – such as Tampa and Orlando as well as several other competitive tournaments throughout the state.”
In addition to Coach Fresh and several others, ex NFL player Jarius Wright from Arkansas and Mark Sanchez of Uschool and Bryce Sampson of Fort Lauderdale High all have played a huge roles in this program's success.
