This year will mark the 4th year our program has hosted a 7 on 7 event to raise money for the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. As a coaching staff, WE have loved to see our student athletes interact with our Nation’s Heroes. Our kids have been the BEST when it comes to raising money for this group.
Our first tournament started with Kent City and Grant. Year two saw 12 teams taking part. Last year we had 16 schools attend. This year WE have 21 schools who will be in Kent City on Friday July 19th!
To make it more interesting this year, schools will be allowed to bring a JV or a Lineman Team. Kent City football will have three teams present on the day: Varsity, JV, and a Lineman Team.
WE will not be charging admission to the tournament, but are asking fans for donations to raise money for the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. The concession stand will be open and t-shirts will be available to purchase to help with the fundraising efforts. One hundred percent of the money raised during the tournament will go to help with quality of life of each member at the Home for Veterans.
Please consider joining us an evening of high school football in July!
