An Alumni 7v7?
The amount of talent from just the coaches at the recent Pylon Elite 7v7 in Las Vegas could have made for an intriguing 7on7 tournament of its own.
While Icy Hot, Advil and first-aid kits would have been needed, a whole slew of former NFL and college football stars, including a number who played in the Super Bowl, were coaching teams from their hometowns.
On offense? Former Washington Husky quarterback Billy Joe Hobert, who coaches P2H and who led the Huskies to a share of the 1991 national title would be the likely signal-caller, with nine years of NFL experience.
His primary receiver likely would have been former USC receiver Keyshawn Johnson, who coached Team 19 and was the No. 1 pick in the 1996 NFL Draft and his assistant coach Darick Holmes and Those Guys coach Chuck Levy, a runnig back at Arizona and then the Cardinals, would rotate in at running back.
Longtime Jacksonville Jaguars running back and former UCLA All-American return man Maurice Jones-Drew, who coached with Kenion Training, could have been the all-purpose guy on offense.
At tight end would have been Tevita Ofahengaue, Mr. Irrelevant in the 2001 NFL Draft from BYU, who Jacksonville took with the final pick.
Defensively, the linebackers likely would have been former Butkus Award Winner Chris Claiborne, who coached the Frat Boyz as well as former New York Giant Antonio Pierce, who co-coached with Johnson on Team 19.
The secondary would have been anchored by Brian Dawkins, the former Clemson Tiger and Philadelphia Eagle All-Pro, who coached Weapon X and former Carolina Panthers cornerback Ricky Manning.
