RENTON, WASH. - High schools from all over the northwest, Idaho and Montana converged on the Seahawks Headquarters at Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton, Wash., this past weekend for the NFL High School Player Development  Seahawks Regional 7-on-7 Tournament. The Bearcats of Monroe High School (Monroe, Wash.) outlasted all other teams in the region and will represent the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL’s National 7-on-7 Tournament in Cleveland, Ohio, this July.

To participate in the non-contact 7-on-7 competition, all high school football players must first complete the HSPD character development program. As an extension of the HSPD program, the all-expense paid National tournament will include character development sessions as well.

For the second-consecutive time in the national tournament’s history, which began in 2007, all 32 teams will have a regional representative. The Seattle Seahawks won the national title in 2008 when  Skyline High School (Bellevue, Wash.) finished the tournament with a perfect 11-0 record.
