Spring 2015 – NLG 7v7 Recap

Written by: on Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015. Follow David Mika on Twitter.

 

Next Level Greats Football Club (NLG) is a developmental program operated by Marcus Hammond, Preston Brown, and Brandon Bather based in Southern New Jersey, just outside of Philadelphia. Our goal is to teach young men how to use football as an avenue to be successful for their entire lives, with a focus on teaching fundamentals expected of players at the highest collegiate levels.

NLG closed out its travel 7v7 season with two solid showings in back to back weeks at the end of June. 2015 marked the 2nd consecutive year playing at the I.M.G 7v7 National Championship.  NLG sent three teams, 2 club level teams and a Future Stars team (players 15 & under).

Next Level Greats Team 3 finished 6th in the Nation and was a few plays away from playing for the championship. The roster for team 3 consists of:
