Are you ready for some summertime football? If you are than Tampa is the place to be this weekend as some of the top athletes in the state of Florida will descend on to the Bulls campus for the second round of the USF Sling & Shoot passing tournament and Big Man camp this weekend. With 100's of players from schools from all over Florida attending both camps, there will be a lot going on all weekend long.
Since its inception fourteen years ago when the field consisted of just 8 teams, the two-day event has become the premier event of the summer, attracting some of the top athletes in the state of Florida. Last year the event was split into two dates to accommodate the growing field of teams and the talent was rich for both events. This year, will certainly be no exception as more than 52 schools from around the state will fill the USF practice fields for non-stop football action.
There will be a good contingent of local schools attending including Plant, the runner up from this year's first session, and Jefferson, the winner from last summer's tournament. Here is a list of schools expected to attend:
This side of the bay: Jefferson, Plant, Armwood, Jesuit, Wharton, Alonso, Chamberlain, Freedom, Lennard, Spoto, Tampa Bay Tech, Tampa Catholic, Carrollwood Day, Land O'Lakes, Pasco
From Pinellas: Admiral Farragut, Calvary Christian, CCC, Clearwater, Countryside, East Lake, Northeast, Palm Harbor University
Schools from around the state: Chiefland, Colonial (Orlando), Hardee (Wauchula), Hollywood Hills, Jupiter, Lake Minneola, Lake Region, Lake Wales, Lecanto, Liberty(Kissimmee), Mainland (Daytona Beach), Naples, Coconut Creek, North Broward Prep, Palm Beach Central, Sebring, South Sumter, Tenoroc (Lakeland), Umatilla, Village Academy, Western (Davie), Fort Pierce Westwood, Palm Beach Gardens, Dwyer, Wayne County (GA).
