The event will crown winners for the Nike 7ON tournament, Nike Linemen Challenge, and SPARQ Rating National Championship. Designed to give student-athletes the training and knowledge to develop their speed, explosiveness and position skills, The Opening brings together top performers from all of the Nike Football Training Camps and Nike Football SPARQ Combines, combined with other top prospects – all battling for the chance to claim ultimate bragging rights.
Several of Nike’s world-class football athletes will also be on hand during the tournament to assist in coaching and provide insights into athletic training at the highest level and what it takes to succeed on and off the football field.
The Opening has quickly become the high profile high school football event in the nation. Last year it drew media coverage from ESPN.com, Scout.com, Rivals.com, 247sports.com and every other major recruiting website, as well as being featured with six hours of broadcast on ESPNU.
