HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A number of area teams participated in a rousing series of games of 7-on-7 Thursday on the campus of Alabama A&M. 

Lee, Johnson, Pope John Paul, Sparkman, Madison County, Guntersville were among the teams from our area and beyond who came out to evaluate and compete. 

"It's a good day, we brought our lineman, got our varsity, got our JV, so we got the whole team over to Alabama A&M," said Lance Reese, the head coach of Guntersville. "You can always develop good depth like this. We try to come to college campuses as often as we can to try and let the kids see what happens at the next level."

John Paul II first-year head coach Elijah Asante was happy to try and gain some positives for his young program. 

"We got us a victory against a really good team, and the boys feel good about it," Asante said. "We haven't had many of these in recent times, but we should be able to build off the victory, get the morale of our program up and keep on going."
