HARRISBURG, PA – The U.S. Army Harrisburg Recruiting Battalion is proud to announce the launch of the Pennsylvania Passing League, a 7-on-7 passing tournament featuring high school football players from throughout the KeystoneState. The Pennsylvania Passing League is an opportunity for high school football teams from across the state to engage in a leadership-developing, team-building, skill-enhancing competition during the summer.
Depending upon the level of interest and the number of participating teams, the Pennsylvania Passing League may be a single-day state championship event; two regional events (East & West) with teams qualifying for a single-day or weekend state championship tournament; or series of state qualifying tournaments throughout the state with teams qualifying for the single-day state championship event. The tentative date for the Pennsylvania Passing League Championship is the weekend of June 11-12. If enough teams participate, regional qualifiers would be held during the weekend of June 5. The site is to be determined.
The structure of Pennsylvania Passing League (PPL) Tournaments will consist of pool play to determine the qualifiers for the single-elimination championship round. For example, with a 16-team PPL tournament, the teams will be broken down into four pools of four teams each. Each team is guaranteed to play three games, with the top two teams from each pool advancing to an eight-team single-elimination tournament.
The official rules of play for the Pennsylvania Passing League are available for download at www.TheSportsFlash.com/PPL. Entry forms and releases are also available for download at the web site.
Entry fee is $20 per player with a minimum, maximum of 12 players per team. A school can enter multiple teams in the tournament. The cost of the entry fee covers the cost of an official PPL tee-shirt to be worn by all competitors, referees, facility rental, and insurance. Trophies will be awarded to the winning teams as well as the Pennsylvania Passing League Most Valuable Player. A Pennsylvania Passing League All-Star team will also be selected.
TSF Radio Network is now accepting team entry forms for the league. In addition, if your school is interested in hosting a PPL event, please contact TSF Radio Network’s Mike Sinnott at (517) 927-4570 or via e-mail at ArmySTRONG.PA@TheSportsFlash.com or TheSportsFlash@aol.com.
