The Passing Down Elite 7-on-7 Challenge hits Orange County on April 16 for the first SoCal regional in Newport Beach. New to the event is the Elite Linemen Challenge, which will feature unique, exigent drills to determine a lineman’s ability, quickness, and strength…

The second regional tournament in Passing Down’s Elite 7on-7 Challenge takes place at the Sage Hill School in Newport Coast. The 12-team tournament will feature some of the top prospects in the West. A few of the teams committed to the event include Big Picture Athletics out of Santa Maria, Pride N Skills out Carson, QB Myles Carr’s Team SGV All Stars, QB Andrew Elffers’ Team Success, and Team P4NL out of Arizona among others.

Team Central Cal Boys won the Passing Down Elite 7-on-7 NorCal Regional in San Ramon on Feb. 12.
