Seven on Seven football has become a spring rite of passage for rising High School sophomores, juniors and seniors interested in playing varsity in the fall. The 2014-2015 sports calendar for high school students ends with the last pitch of the Varsity Baseball state championship, which coincides with Memorial Day weekend. The following week prospective varsity football players and their coaches can take the field in a game of touch football in round robin league play. This “spring football” season is quick and ends before the last day of school, which this year is Monday, June 15.
I caught a few spring games as played at Seneca Valley HS in Germantown. What I like about these spring games is that first, it is a low-key event and two, and you can get close and find great expressions on these student athletes.
Here is a short slideshow of the a few area teams that include Paint Branch, Clarksburg, Damascus and Quince Orchard.
