The Vikings are 1 of 16 NFL teams being represented at this year’s HSPD 7-on-7 National Tournament, and the team representing them is from Lakeville South High School. And although they’ve been on the wrong end of 2 close decisions with a 10-point loss sandwiched in between, their head coach Larry Thompson has kept an up-beat attitude.
“Hopefully we can find some luck here along the way,” Thompson said.
Thompson also explained how neat it was for his kids to not only qualify for the national tournament but then also have the chance to compete in it as it’s hosted by the Vikings at Winter Park.
So far, the Lakeville South team has been unable to tally a win. They fell 24-21 to New Orleans in Game 1, 38-28 to Carolina in Game 2 and then 35-34 to the Giants in Game 3. The Vikings have 2 more round robin games today against the Rams and Redskins before they play their last 2 round robin games tomorrow against the Cardinals and Falcons.
After round robin play concludes around noon tomorrow, the teams will be seeded and will then compete in a single elimination tournament to determine the champion.
