Southeast 7-on-7 Photo Gallery

Scenes from the first day of action at the Southeast 7-on-7 Tournament at Hoover are featured.

Foley quarterback Roosevelt Byrd put on a show on day one of the tournament as he led Foley to a perfect 4-0 record.

Much of the attention from Byrd went to star junior receiver Julio Jones. Here Jones goes up high for a grab in a game against Jefferson County, Ga. High.

Jefferson County's top player at the tournament is senior linebacker Tim Nelson. A big, physical prospect, Nelson is likely to be a defensive end on the next level.

Last season Springdale (Ark) quarterback Mitch Mustain got a lot of attention for his play and rightfully so. This year it's going to be quarterback Jeremy Paxton. A very good passer, Paxton won a state competition in Arkansas last week for his ability and is getting a lot of attention from schools including Arkansas.

Another lesser known quarterback that performed well was Wooddale (Memphis) standout Jeremy Perry. Throwing to all-everything receiver Roderick Davis, Perry showed he's capable of playing on the next level and it won't be surprising to see his name pop up on several schools' lists as signing day gets close.

Every season there are several players that come out of nowhere as seniors to become prospects. This year that player could be Dematanise Hill from Olive Branch, Miss. A running back with good hands, he could also play linebacker or safety on the next level.
