Students from six area high schools enriched their football skills on the campus of Northeast Mississippi Community College during the annual seven-on-seven and big man challenge camps on June 7.

The seven-on-seven event used two-hand touch rules with no pads and enabled offensive and defensive specialists, including the quarterback and linebackers, to sharpen their techniques.

Teams competed in a round-robin format during the morning hours and were seeded based upon their earlier results into a single-elimination bracket following a short lunch break.

Alcorn Central High School defeated Saltillo High School in the round-robin portion of the event and fell in the quarterfinals of the afternoon tournament.

Linemen met at the adjacent practice facility for a series of tests, including one-on-one drills and an obstacle course, that were designed to improve their fundamentals in the trenches.

Over 100 athletes attended Northeast’s second-ever offseason function that helped each prep program in its preparations for their respective upcoming campaigns on the gridiron.
