La Vernia to host 7-on-7 tourney
LA VERNIA -- La Vernia High School will host a qualifying tournament Saturday, June 16, for the sixth annual Division II (Class 1A-3A) Fox Sports Southwest 7-on-7 State Championship Tournament presented by Adidas and Academy Sports & Outdoors.
The top two schools in the 16-team qualifying event advance to the state tournament July 19-20 at Texas A&M University. The La Vernia tournament is one of 16 qualifying events, held on high school campuses around the state to determine the 32 teams that will play in the state championship tournament.
Texas high schools use 7-on-7 football as an off-season workout program to promote and improve the quality of quarterbacks, receivers, secondary players, and linebackers. High school programs throughout Texas organize teams and participate in a summer league that culminates with the championship tournament in July. To comply with UIL rules, active coaches are prohibited from instructing players during games.
At the state tournament, the 64 qualifying teams will divide into 16 groups of four teams each and compete in pool play with three games per team. The top two teams from each pool advance to a 32-team single elimination tournament, while the remaining 16 teams are entered into a single elimination consolation championship. The state championship tournament is scheduled to begin pool play Thursday, July 19. The championship games will be played at Kyle Field Friday, July 20.
