Upcoming Heath Evans 7-on-7 to host 6 of 8 state champs 

By Jason Lieser

The Super Bowl champion has landed some state champions for his annual tournament.

The Heath Evans Foundation said in a press release it will feature six of last year’s eight state champions in its 7-on-7 football tournament next month. Dwyer (Class 4A), American Heritage (Class 1A), Glades Day (Class 1B), Miramar (Class 6A), Tampa-Plant (Class 5A) and Pensacola (Class 3A) all have committed to play.

Glades Central, Miami-Washington and King’s Academy also have accepted invites, leaving seven open spots for the tournament.

The tournament will be at King’s Academy on June 12. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the gate.

Proceeds will go to Evans’ foundation, which assists victims of sexual abuse.

Evans, a King’s Academy graduate, always has some of his NFL friends show up at the event. Last year, Randy Moss, Wes Welker and Matt Cassel were among the attendees.
