Last weekend, there was a seven-on-seven football competition in Las Vegas, and let’s just say it resembled an AAU basketball all-star competition.
There was fighting over players.
Cameron Haney, a junior defensive back at L.A. Cathedral, was listed on three different rosters. Cathedral Coach Kevin Pearson took a team to the competition and told his players they had to play for his team and not the team run by their private coaches. That didn’t go over well.
There are more all-star competitions ahead. High school coaches who are entering their own teams are going to have some interesting conversations with their players as these passing tournaments proliferate.
Welcome to high school sports, 2014.
