Last weekend we headed to Las Vegas for an Elite football tournament for my son Elijah (NLA Elite 7v7 Passing Tournament.) He joined the Gridiron Academy team recently with his high school quarterback. It was a great opportunity to play with top players from around the country showcasing their talent for the media & college scouts.
Elijah played great! He caught everything that was thrown to him (5 passes in 1 game) & his new teammates were very surprised & impressed at how good he was. They started calling him Wes Welker (a great NFL receiver) which he loved of course!
This weekend we're headed to the Nike Combine 2012 in Long Beach, CA. Hoping that he turns out some great numbers. He's been diligent in maintaining a high GPA & has trained hard in both football & track...he wants a scholarship!!
