Tarpon Football Guys Doing 7-on-7

Special to the PRESS

Returning and prospective Port Isabel Tarpon football players are getting in a little advance preparation for the 2016 football season.

They are playing a non-contact version of the game know as 7-on-7.  The players do not wear pads or helmets and every play is a passing play.

The team has been playing games each Tuesday and Thursday night at various fields in Brownsville for several weeks.  The season concluded this Thursday night with a second game against Brownsville Veterans.  The team won the first game against the Chargers, 19-12.

The team is coached on a volunteer basis by Jarrod Martinez.  Martinez has about 20 players participating this season, and the team entered Thursday’s game with a 2-3 record.  This Tuesday night they lost to Brownsville Pace and their other win came in a previous game with Pace, 19-12.
