Rob Sutton set his sights on another golden year. And 2019 is shaping up to be just that for Quick 6 Football 7-on-7 championship series — GOLDEN GREAT in the golden state!
Being a middle school or high school football player nowadays means more than just showing up for tryouts come summer.
Over the last decade, many players train with conditioning or high school coaches in the off-season.
The evidence of how well the training is going is often tested in the arena of 7-on-7 football during the winter/spring season.
Just as it sounds, 7-on-7 is seven offensive players (really six players because the center position is a non-receiver) against seven defensive players in a non-contact one-hand-touch football game.
7-on-7 GOLDEN GREAT CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
Quick 6 Football events have been one of the most-sought after 7-on-7 football tournaments in California in recent years.
Many teams come with hopes of being the last man standing at the end of the day. And to hoist the gorgeous trophy as well as receiving medals and custom Dri-Fit shirts.
More importantly, the champions have bragging rights against other teams which feature players they likely will face in padded competition in the fall.
Quick 6 Football was established in 2012 in Elk Grove. The organization’s goal is to create a competitive 7-on-7 football tournament that gives players and coaches an atmosphere built on integrity and sportsmanship.
There were a total of six teams at the inaugural Quick 6 tournament in Elk Grove, registered from Santa Rosa, San Jose, Fresno and the Sacramento Area.
Things escalated quickly as Quick 6 now hosts four to five high school-aged events averaging 12 to 16 teams per tournament. Plus two middle school-aged events for ages 11-14.
On Sunday, March 24, Quick 6 will host it’s first event up North.
The Air To The Throne 7-on-7 Challenge will take place at the California Soccer Park in Redding. There is excitement about this high school division tournament. It gives teams up North, (including Oregon, Nevada and Utah), a chance to play in a competitive event closer to home.
Quick 6 is also working to help bring in teams outside of Redding to support a city that was impacted by the devastating fires of 2018.
A Quick 6 Football day consists of three pool play games.
The object of pool play is to score as many points as possible in each game to accumulate a high score.
Wins and losses do not factor.
Following a lunch time intermission, the competition heats up as the single elimination games begin and it’s “Win or go home!”
The Quick 6 high school tournaments give teams a chance to qualify for the Golden Great 7-ON-7 Championship held at the City of College of San Francisco. The top four teams from each event are automatically invited.
The first event of the year for the High School Division was the 7th Annual Under The Lights 7-on-7 on January 27 in Sacramento.
DB SELECT of Sacramento took the top prize with Dream Chasers Legends, Game-Fit and 916 Boys rounding out the top four.
