Published 12:02 am Wednesday, July 20, 2016

The 7-on-7 football tournament Tuesday at Flomaton will give coaches a chance to evaluate the Blue Devils’ offense and defense, Escambia County football coach Royce Young said.

The Blue Devils will be playing in the round-robin type tournament next Tues., July 26, at FHS. Kick off is slated for 5 p.m.

“The 7-on-7 gives your quarterback and receivers the chance to work on timing and working together,” Young said. “It gives defensive backs and linebackers some work on defense, especially pass coverage.”
