Field of 25 set for 2nd Annual Corky Kell 7-on-7

The field of 25 teams is set for the second annual Corky Kell 7-on-7 tournament that will return to Roswell Area Parks Football Complex on June 19. Archer defeated McEachern in the finals of last year’s 15-team tournament as Gwinnett County teams dominated the action. Norcross, Archer, Mill Creek, Brookwood, North Gwinnett and Collins Hill went a combined 21-4 against teams from outside of the county in last year’s tournament and will each be returning this year.

Archer returns as one of this year’s headliners and is one of 12 teams from this year’s Corky Kell lineup that will play in the 7-on-7 tournament. The Tigers are joined by Norcross, Mill Creek, Brookwood, North Paulding, Carrollton, Sandy Creek, Creekview, North Gwinnett, Tucker, Kell and defending Class AAAAAA state champion Colquitt County.

The 13 other teams include out-of-state powerhouse Byrnes (SC) and Gwinnett County’s Peachtree Ridge and Collins Hill. Roswell, Centennial, Blessed Trinity, Griffin, Mays, Glynn Academy, Houston County, Cherokee, Walton and Gainesville make up the remaining field.

The tournament will attract a lot of recruiting attention as some of the top prospects in the state will face off. Roswell’s Tre Lamar stands 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, and we will get an opportunity to see how the hard-hitting four-star linebacker moves in his pass coverage. Archer’s Kyle Davis did it all in the Tigers’ offense last season as a receiver and running threat and will star in the offense with new starting quarterback Will Bearden for the first time.

North Gwinnett star wideout Josh Imatorbhebhe is the No. 21 rated senior in the state and other top receiving prospects like UGA-commit Darion Anderson of Houston County will challenge a deep lineup of highly-recruited defensive backs.

Peachtree Ridge brings four-star cornerback Chad Clay and the No. 1-ranked Class of 2017 prospect in the state in cornerback Deangelo Gibbs. Archer will have safety Isaiah Pryor, the No. 6 ranked Class of 2017 prospect in the state.
