Davidson Day to appear on NFL Network
by Staff Writer
NFL Films produced the program, which includes plenty of attention on Davidson Day, given its connection to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
Davidson Day won the Panthers’ 7-on-7 tournament at the team’s Charlotte practice facility in early July and represented the Panthers at the NFL’s national 7-on-7 event July 12-15 in Indianapolis. Newton appeared at the Panthers' tournament and spoke to the high-school players.
Each NFL team sent a high-school representative to the national event.
Players don’t wear pads during 7-on-7, and there are no linemen, blocking or tackling. The format is geared toward refining passing, receiving and pass coverage.
The program is scheduled to be posted online at www.nflhspd.com in the near future.
