After hosting an 11-team regional in Elk Grove two weeks ago, Passing Down will host another impressive list of double-digit teams on Sunday in Orange County. The top four finishers will earn an invite to the Best of West Elite 7-on-7 Challenge finals on May 27 in Santa Maria.
And picking the top four teams on paper is a difficult task.
The collection of talent that will be showcased on Sunday could load a few D1 teams’ back seven and offensive skill position sets.
Marin Catholic quarterback Jared Goff impressed in Elk Grove easily living up to his hype as the top quarterback in Northern California. On Sunday, Southern California’s top quarterback – Narbonne signal caller Troy Williams – will get his opportunity to light up Passing Down.
Williams leads Team 1925 All-Stars, and he will have a loaded receiving crew highlighted by Long Beach Jordan wide receiver John Ross and Lakewood’s X'avier Shepherd.
But the top prospect on Sunday won’t be playing offense at the next level.
Vista Murrieta athlete Su’a Cravens is the nation’s top safety and headlines Team Frat Boyz.
Team B2G will have two teams on Sunday. And after winning the IMG 7-on-7 last month, they must be considered a favorite. Also competing with two teams is Team Alliance – Team Body by Tra, GamechangersLA, IE Elite, and Impulse55 Elite round out the 10-team field. Two more teams could be late additions to cap the tournament at 12 teams.
