ENGLEWOOD The Denver Broncos will host the Rocky Mountain Region’s largest high school 7-on-7 and Linemen Challenge tournaments from Tuesday to Friday at All City Stadium and on Saturday the UCHealth Training Center.
Presented by Children’s Hospital Colorado and Chick-Fil-A, more than 160 combined teams—nearly 34 percent of the schools in the state of Colorado that play high school football—will participate. The teams include 20-of-32 Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) 5A and 4A state playoff teams.
Each team in the tournament is guaranteed to play at least three games in a pool play format, with 32 teams playing each day.
The first three days of competition will be held at All City Stadium at Denver South High School (1500 S. Franklin St., Denver, CO 80210). Play will begin each day at 9 a.m. and will finish at 5:45 p.m.
The pool winners from the 7-on-7 and Linemen Challenge tournaments will advance to the championship event on Saturday at UCHealth Training Center (13403 Broncos Pkwy., Englewood, CO 80112) from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. The remaining teams will be seeded according to pool play record and total points scored before playing in a single-elimination tournament.
The Linemen Challenge competition includes tug-of-war, tractor tire flip, obstacle course, five-man sled push and relays.
Media are invited to attend all of the events. Bobby Mestas, Director Youth and High School Football, and select players and coaches will be available for interviews by request.
