Top Performers: Under Armour Sevens

EL TORO, Calif. - A recap of the action and look at the top performers at the Under Armour Sevens Tournament.

Twenty-four high school football teams battled it out at the Under Armour Sevens Tournament at El Toro on Saturday, with some of the region's top programs facing off , and at the end of the day the Hart Indians emerged victorious with a perfect 7-0 record.

The Indians went 5-0 in pool play, thanks to some big plays by 2015 wide receiver Trent Irwin, who once again showed that he is one of the top underclassmen in Southern California.

"There were a lot of talented teams out here and I think we did good as a team," Trent Irwin said. "Our defense stepped it up in a lot of games. We tried to compete and I think we did a good job."

In the semifinal round, Hart's defense came up big, with a surprising shutout victory over quarterback Conner Manning and El Toro's high-powered offense.

In the championship game, Hart scored in the closing seconds to escape with a thrilling 34-28 victory over an extremely talented Serra squad.

"This is a huge accomplishment. As a team, you can see that we are all real excited," said Irwin. "We got our trophy, we are going to go home and lift on Monday."

Top Performers

Josh Savage | WR | Damien
WR Josh Savage
Josh Savage has remained under the radar despite an impressive offseason. It's hard to imagine that the talented wide receiver isn't being recruited by any Pac-12 schools after watching him shred some quality defenses on Saturday, including a dominant, three touchdown performance against Servite.

Jalen Greene | QB | Serra
QB Jalen Greene
Last year as a sophomore, Greene was named Mission League MVP largely because of his tremendous athleticism and ability to run the ball, but this offseason he has made great strides in the passing game. The 6-3, 195-pound quarterback was one of the most accurate passers on Saturday and displayed a strong arm. Greene throws a good deep ball and has all the tools to be a special player.

Trent Irwin | WR | Hart
WR Trent Irwin
The 2015 wide receiver was once again one of the most productive receivers at the tournament. Despite being just a sophomore, Irwin has emerged as Hart's go-to playmaker and one of the top underclassmen in the state. The 6-1, 165-pound receiver runs crisp routes and always seems to find the hole in the defense. Irwin also made a handful of nice plays as a cornerback on Saturday.

Jaleel Wadood | DB | St. John Bosco
S Jaleel Wadood
The 2014 standout was arguably the top defensive back on the day, racking up at least three interceptions during pool play. Wadood has been very impressive on the camp circuit this offseason and will be a major factor on one of the top teams in Southern California. He currently has an offer from Oregon State and should add more by the end of his junior season.

Conner Manning | QB | El Toro
QB Conner Manning
The 6-2, 195-pound quarterback doesn't wow you with any one aspect of his game, but does everything well. Manning showed very good accuracy and leadership in leading El Toro to the semifinals. After watching Manning at various camps this offseason, it hard to believe that Utah is his only offer. Not to mention the fact that he passed for over 4,000 yards last season.

Josh Savage beats the defense for a touchdown on Saturday.
