Recruiting: 7 on 7 Championships - June 21-23

Submitted by TampaJake on June 10th, 2013 at 9:42 AM

So MgoBlogers,

It's time for the national 7 on 7 tourny at IMG again.  My officials association has been chosen to officiate again this year.  Please let me know if there are any M recruits that I should look for.  I can also send along some pictures from the event, although the media outlets are much better at this than I am, plus I am working the event.

It is no longer the Madden 7 on 7, the event now has national sponsorship through the National Football Association  http://www.nfa7v7.com/

I predict 7 on7 will become very big and maybe overtake regular football at the lower levels as there is MUCH less contact and the chance of injuries is significantly less.

From the regionals, some local coverage:
