CORKY KELL CLASSIC 7-ON-7
By Craig Sager II
Top programs clash in passing showcase

 

This year's two-day, seven-game Corky Kell Classic is bigger than ever and for the first time in event history, the kickoff classic is inaugurating its Corky Kell 7-on-7 tournament. 12 of this year's Corky Kell teams and a total of 15 of the best teams in the state will hit the turf on Friday at the Roswell Area Parks Football Complex.

Friday and will give each team four games to then determine seeding for the single elimination afternoon tourney. There are five teams in each of the three sections.

 

In Section A, Norcross, Creekview, Centennial, Archer and McEachern are grouped up. Section B stars Mill Creek, North Paulding, Tucker, Sandy Creek and Roswell. Finally, Section C pins North Gwinnett, Carrollton, Brookwood, Collins Hill and Blessed Trinity together.

 

The first games of the day will be Norcross vs. Creekview, North Paulding vs. Mill Creek, North Gwinnett vs. Carrollton, Centennial vs. Archer, Tucker vs. Sandy Creek and Brookwood vs. Collins Hill. Six games will be going on at once every 30 minutes.

 

Aside from the team talent and rivals set to cross paths, there will be outstanding individual matchups to look for with some of the nation's most coveted prospects. And while some prospects are already well-established in the recruiting ranks, others will have an opportunity to prove themselves on a competitive stage.

and brother's Daniel and Josh Imatorbhebhe helped the Bulldogs dominate 7 on 7 action last summer and lead arguably the top receiving corps in the state heading into 2014. This trio is physical and has great size to go with plenty of big game experience. Senior Jaye Stackhouse is a ball-hawking defender that can also play receiver for North Gwinnett. 

 

North Gwinnett will be trying out a new quarterback and so will Norcross, which beat the Bulldogs for their second straight Class AAAAAA title in December. Norcross lost a senior class of over 60 players and will have a lot of new playmakers that have waited their turn the past two seasons.

 

Tucker brings cornerback Duke Shelley, wide receiver Nekyle Lundie and new running back Delvin Weems. Weems starred for Sandy Creek the past two seasons but transferred to Tucker this offseason. He will face his former team in the first game of pool play.

 

Here is a quick overview of the game rules:

 

1. All Teams are guaranteed 5 games.

2. Games run for 22 minutes.

3. Games will begin promptly on the half-hour.

4. Opening possession will be determined by coin toss.

5. Play begins at the 40-yard line.

6. The offense has 4 plays to reach the 20-yard line for a first down.

7. Each team is allowed one 60-second time out per game.

8. Scoring:

          Offensive Touchdowns = 6 points

          Offensive PAT = 1 point

          Defensive Interception = 2 points

          Defensive Stop = 1 point

9. PAT's will be from the 3rd yard line.

10. Over Time:

          Each team will have two plays from the 10-yard line to score. No PAT's or Defensive points are awarded. A coin toss determines the order of possession and the process continues until a winner is decided.

11. Two coaches are allowed on the field with their teams but must remain behind the huddle.
