When the footballs begin flying through the air, some of Indiana's best high school players will be lining up against one another on offense and defense. These players have 35 college offers between them from the Big 10, SEC, MAC, Big East and ACC. You can see their talents and abilities before they ever don a college helmet. They will be focusing on their senior high school season and getting ready to play the final season of high school football.
This event will garner radio and television attention in Indianapolis. The spacious Pike campus and football facilities create a wonderful atmosphere if you like watching footballs fly. Here you can see some of Indiana's best, like Carmel, Ben Davis, Warren Central and, the host team, the Pike Red Devils. Noblesville, Hamilton Southeastern and Lawrence Central are big schools with some extremely talented players. Ft. Wayne Wayne and Ft. Wayne Bishop Luers will travel down from the Summit City to compete. IPS powers Broad Ripple and Arlington will whip up their usual rivalry as well.
Host Coach Derek Moyers believes this summer contest is a great opportunity to get better as football players with a great mix of teams represented at the Pike 7 on 7. "The reason we host this is because of the great talent that is assembled at Pike and the superior competition helps teams get better," Moyers told Indiana Varsity Scout. Indiana Varsity Scout will choose an all tournament team featuring the top 7 offensive players and top 7 defensive players. Also, 5 lineman will be featured as "Studs of the Sty" from the lineman's challenge.
