NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Tennessee Titans are still on break, but during the downtime they are helping develop some of Middle Tennessee’s local high school football talent.
On Wednesday, 12 area high schools sent teams to St. Thomas Sports Park to compete in the inaugural 7-on-7 tournament.
For the Titans, this wasn’t just about giving the local teams the opportunity to play where the pros practice.
“We are always looking at different ways of developing and growing the game of football”, said Titans Youth Football Coordinator Josh Corey. “We thought that this was something that was very popular with high school programs around the region and we wanted to provide an opportunity for kids to come in and experience our facility and come in and compete”.
Former Titans fullback Casey Cramer conducted a leadership development presentation for the teams and then during the afternoon the teams competed in the single-elimination championship.
Murfreesboro’s Oakland High School team won the 7-on-7 Championship Tournament beating Father Ryan.
