The Carolina Panthers, Under Armour and USA Football partnered to host the 2017 High School 7on7 Regional Championships on June 29. Nearly 1,000 high school football players and coaches converged on the Manchester Meadows athletic complex in Rock Hill, S.C. for the tournament, which featured a who's who of high school football with 32 high-powered North and South Carolina programs participating.
Following a full day of intense competition, the Wake Forest Cougars defeated the Mallard Creek Mavericks 24-12 in the championship game. The Cougars posted an impressive 8-0 record during their march through the tournament field and earned the right to advance into USA Football's national high school 7on7 championship tournament.
"The Carolina Panthers and Under Armour were pleased to partner with USA Football for this year's event, which featured the largest number of teams we have ever hosted," said Pater Vacho, Panthers military and football outreach manager. "While the competition was outstanding, one of the real positive outcomes of the day was the ability for some of the region's top high school coaches to use the tourney games as a good teaching opportunity as they prepare their teams for the upcoming season."
