The 2016 Lamar Viking 7 on 7 team joined the most exclusive club in Texas high school 7 on 7 Saturday as they qualified for the State 7 on 7 Championship for a record 19th consecutive time. The Vikes went 3-0 in pool play and then won the qualifying game to go to 4-0. To give you some idea of how long this streak has continued none of the players on the current team were alive when the streak started in 1998. The Vikes are the ONLY high school in Texas to have achieved this feat out of some 1350+ high schools.

Up next is the Southlake SQT. The Vikes will participate in Pool Play beginning at 1:00 pm at Southlake Carroll Sr. High. Directions and other information can be found under the "PDF" tab on the home page.

The State Championship will be held July 8-9 in College Station.

The Viking 7 on 7 team will travel to Justin NW High School early Saturday morning in quest of a record 18th consecutive qualification for the State Championship Tournament in July.

The kids had a good spring in regular football and we supplemented that with a handful of preseason 7 on 7 practices. This group works hard and is a reflection of the work put in on by Coach DeLay and his staff all year long. Now that the kids are "ours" we will step up putting in our packages that relate to the 7 on 7 game which along with their regular football packages gives us a good mix.

The tournament gets underway at 9:00 am Saturday. The pool play schedule is attached as a PDF along with directions to the tournament. Sam Thomas a former Viking football player is going to update our twitter feed so if you cannot make it out just check in periodically for updates. I will of course update the blog after we see how we fare in this first tournament.
