Shane Morris and target Laquon Treadwell are playing together on the Midwest team in the Champion Gridiron Kings 7-on-7 Tournament this weekend. Pool play competition started today with the Tournament final Sunday at noon ET (stream live on ESPN3 and broadcast at 7pm ET on ESPNU).
EDIT #1: Tournament bracket is set: West vs. Southeast. Midwest vs. Southwest. Winners advance to final at 12pm ET (live on http://espn3.com)
EDIT #2: Midwest will play Southeast in final. In the semis, Midwest beat Southwest 20-14, and Southeast defeated West 26-20.
EDIT #3: Southeast defeats Midwest 47-19. Morris didn't have the same rhythm in 2nd half. If you watch the tape delay on ESPNU tonight on 7pm, I recommend turning it off at halftime.
The bad news: Midwest team has opened the tournament 1-2. Midwest lost their opener vs. the West 27-21 after Morris could not connect with Treadwell on a fade on 4th and goal. Midwest then lost their 2nd game vs. the Southeast 20-7. Midwest pulled out their first win in the final game of pool play with a Morris 65 yd TD pass in the final minute vs. the Southwest 20-14.
The good news: Reports have Shane and Laquon developing nice chemistry on the field.
It's been Shane Morris to LaQuon Treadwell all day for the Midwest team, best kind of recruiting pitch a QB can make to a WR...
