ECHS prepares for 7-on-7 tourney

Published 9:49 pm Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Skill players for the Escambia County Blue Devils will get their first chance at a competitive environment on July 6 in Gulf Shores.
The Blue Devils will participate in a 7-on-7 tournament featuring Daphne, Robertsdale, Baldwin County, Gulf Shores, Escambia County and a team still to be determined.
Every team will play each other and then by record games will be set up to determine first, second and third place teams.
Blue Devils head coach Mark Heaton said he wants to see his players go out and be competitive against their opponents.
“This will be our first competitive 7-on-7,” Heaton said. “We have been practicing against each other in that style at workouts, so right now I just want to see our kids going out competing and being coachable. We are still using this time as a learning experience, so hopefully everything will come together.”
