Members of the Tokay High football team have already learned a valuable lesson during their summer workouts: It’s OK not to have their smartphones on them almost 24 hours a day.
In recent weeks, the Tigers have been busy in working toward their mantra of “trust the process.” Last week, Tokay made a trip to Nevada to compete at the Lake Tahoe Football Camp. That gave quarterbacks, running backs, tight ends and wide receivers to showcase their strengths and skills against linebackers, defensive backs and safeties.
This was the third 7-on-7 passing tournament this month for the Tigers. Earlier this month, Tokay competed at the Stagg Brown and Gold, plus the first-ever Edison High tournaments.
While Tokay skilled players were busy with 7-on-7 passing games at the Lake Tahoe Tournament, the linemen competed in the Trench Wars tournament. That featured events such as an obstacle course, sled push, 40-yard dash relay, tire flip replay and the popular tug-of-war.
