Top 7v7 High School (18U) Teams in the Nation - Weekly Rankings
Watch this video to see this week's top 10 teams show out and make some great plays. Let us know in the comments who else should be on our radar.
1. Tucson Turf
Battle Miami Champions: Tucson Turf impressed everyone by winning the highly competitive Battle Miami tournament, defeating teams such as South Florida Express, Burch Sports, and multiple Defcon teams. However, they were unable to win the RedZone Elite Super Bowl 7v7 season, losing to Team Full Gorilla in the final.
2. South Florida Express
Pylon Orlando Champions: South Florida Express is a dominant team every year, but they got off to a slow start this year with a quarterfinal exit in bracket play at Battle Miami. They bounced back and won a competitive tournament at Pylon Orlando and another 7v7 tournament recently. Their receiver core, featuring players like Joshisa Trader, Jeremiah Smith, Lewayne McCoy, is not to be underestimated.
This team is so talented that they have to split into two 18U teams. Both teams performed well in Battle Miami and Pylon Orlando. They have a competitive event coming up at Battle Vegas.
Defcon dominated the Battle Miami and Pylon Orlando tournaments. They held 3 out of 4 semifinal slots at Battle Miami, including their team from Texas. Although they fell short in the final, Defcon has a great 7v7 program with depth.
5. Florida Fire
Florida Fire has been highly competitive in every tournament they have played in so far. They have yet to win a championship, but they are showing that Florida is filled with talented players.
6. Team Full Gorilla: RedZone Elite Super Bowl 7v7 Classic Champions
Team Full Gorilla dominated their first tournament of the year, taking down Tucson Turf in the final. Their future position in the rankings will depend on their performance in future tournaments.
7. Gamechangers: RedZone Elite MLK Weekend Champions
Gamechangers, who have talent from Bishop Gorman, started the year undefeated by beating Trillion Boys at the RedZone Elite MLK Weekend event.
8. Prime Truth: DR7 Road to Crown - Davenport Champions
Prime Truth has participated in multiple events and played well at Pylon Orlando, where they lost to SFE in the semifinals. They bounced back and went undefeated at the DR7 event in Davenport to win the tournament.
In their first event as a program, Raw showed why they will be a force on the 7v7 circuit. They went undefeated at Battle Miami until they lost in the quarterfinals to Defcon. With talented players and great coaching, we can expect to see them win a couple of tournaments as they gain more chemistry.
10. Burch Sports
Although Burch has yet to win a tournament, they get the nod at #10 for playing in multiple competitive tournaments and having some down-to-the-wire matchups against Tucson Turf and Florida Fire.
