The overcast sky provided a cool Tuesday evening as Land O’ Lakes High School hosted this week’s 7-on-7 Summer Football League.
The football programs in attendance were the Land O’ Lakes Gators, Gulf Buccaneers, Fivay Falcons, Ridgewood Rams, Anclote Sharks, and Nature Coast Sharks.
The Gators looked sharp against their opponents, Anclote and Nature Coast, even though they were missing their star tight end, Kent Taylor. However, Jackson Cannon filled in nicely at the tight end position, and connected with quarterback, Ryan Bird, on many occasions. Bird was throwing with precision and reading coverage very well.
Not only was the offense clicking, but the defense was covering ground well, too. The Gator defense had many stops, and a few interceptions to create opportunities with their forced turnovers.
Next week’s games will be played at Anclote High School and Wiregrass High School, on Thursday July 7.
