ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — For now, the 7-on-7 scrimmages are still on.


The next time the varsity teams take the field will be Tuesday – where eight different football teams will play in the round-robin tournament. 

If everybody behaves themselves, some head coaches say this work in the summer will pay off in the fall. 

The last two state champions played in the 7-on-7 event. 

"This Highland thing has really helped," said Charlie Dotson, head coach for the Eldorado Eagles. "Our last two state champions have been from the metro area so it's been a good thing." 

"Really the goal is not to win – we'd like to win but the goal is to evaluate players and give them an opportunity to step up and be a player," said Heath Ridenour, head coach for the Cleveland Storm.
