The 2012 Mythical 7on7 National Championship Team!
The Super Elite Top Gun Camp in Middletown, Connecticut was going to be a great and exciting Football Camp in The Great Northeast and it was going to pit some of the greatest high school football players in the country against each other. The terrible economy put a damper on the Super Elite Top Gun Camp, but in the Pre-Camp buildup, I received a lot of valuable information and I evaluated a lot of players on their highlight films. This info helped me to initially rate and rank many of the top high school football players in The Great Northeast area.
Later, even after the Super Elite Top Gun Camp was cancelled, because of the bad economy, I thought that I might be able to put together a Top Gun Camp National 7on7 Team from The Great Northeast, but most the players were already on a 7on7 Team.
In 2010, I formed a Super Southeast 7on7 and we competed in two National 7on7 Tournaments and then in 2011, I formed a National 7on7 Super Select Team that qualified for two National 7on7 Championships, including The Badger Sport Elite 7on7 National Championship.
The 2011 National 7on7 Super Select Team had a unique set of intriguing stories. First of all, the Badger Sport Elite 7on7 Regional Tournament was scheduled to be in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but the distructive tornado came through Tuscaloosa that week and they moved the tournament to Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.
Our 7on7 players were from eight different states, but our plan was to meet in Tuscaloosa on Friday and I had rented an indoor facility for us to work out together for about two hours before the tournament started on Saturday. Obviously the tornado changed these great plans, but moving the tournament to Birmingham also changed our overnight lodging plans. We had a chartered bus and we left Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Friday with about twenty-three players, including about eight of our players and about 15 players that were on another Louisiana 7on7 team.
Then we got to our first hotel that we had already made reservations and they had cancelled our reservations for State Tornado Workers. Then we got to our second hotel at around 1:00 Saturday morning and they had also cancelled our reservations. Around 1:30 in the morning, I found us a dump of a hotel, but it was the best we could do at 1:30 in the morning. We also were about 45 miles from Samford University.
Then, we had to get the players up at 6:00 A.M., so we could leave around 7:00. Our first game was at 9:00. During all of these distractions, all of our other players that we were to meet and workout with, had to stay at other hotels and so our players got to see each other for the first time, just before our first game. In that game, it looked like we were going to lose, but junior WR Shelby Christy caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from QB Zach Conque with 30-seconds left and we thought we had won the game. As the clock ran out on a continuous running clock, the other team lined up and ran a play for the winning touchdown. We didn’t even have our defense on the field when they scored the winning touchdown. We argued for 10 minutes, but we still lost the game.
With some incredible players making some incredible plays, we won our next two games and finished our Pool Play with a 2-1 record. On Sunday, we lost our first game by two points. Everyone was impressed with our players and although we did not qualify for the Badger New Level Elite 7on7 National Championship, we were given an invitation to attend. In fact, the word got out about our great athletic team and we were given invitations to three other 7on7 National Championships.
A few weeks ago, I talked to Baron Flenory, Jr and Kashann Simmons of New Level Athletics and I told them that I thought that I could form at least one Super Northeast 7on7 Team and maybe two teams, but as I said, most of the great players were already committed to their own 7on7 Team. With all of this in mind, if I could have put together a Super Northeast 7on7 Team, this could have probably been the 2012 Mythical 7on7 National Champion.
I also added four four offensive linemen and four defensive linemen, all with a Six Star MEARS RATING, to the team for support. Every single player on this team has been evaluated on his Highlight Film and there are some Super Surprises.
