    Best Of The West 7-On-7 Tournament

    It's a 32 team 7-on-7 passing tournament in Hopkinsville, KY on July 19th-20th. Anyone heard about this, or planning on going?

    Christian County High School, Hopkinsville High School, and Hopkinsville Parks & Recreation are teaming up to hold the event at the Stadium Of Champions in Hoptown, and the adjacent Tie-Breaker Park. Each of the teams will compete in at least 8 games, and they're expecting to have teams competing from Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri.

    They've started announcing teams on social media, beginning with Corbin High School, and Brentwood Academy (TN).

    Sounds like a pretty cool event.

    Do teams that win the 7v7 tournaments usually do well in the playoffs?

    I wouldn't put any stock in to how a 7 on 7 tourney team will do in the regular season. It's touch football on a 40 yard field usually, and teams will often gamble more taking deep shots than they would in a real game. Also you get points for stops so maybe you have a good pass D coverage but your run D is horrible.

    It's a chance for quarterbacks and receivers to work on timing against different personnel.

    It's a chance for defensive backs to work on their man coverage against different personnel.

    While you don't want to put too much stock into it, you also don't want to gloss over it especially if you have an offense dependent on some passing or play in a district against teams that like to throw the football
