Midwest 7s All-Star Update

August 26-27th, 2011: A belated congratulations goes out to Jamie Gasparella who was a late addition to the Midwest 7s team roster. He joined Josh Kraemer at the US Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA for matches against the All-Star 7s Territorial sides and the Collegiate All-Americans. Josh and Jamie joined players from the Youngbloodz, 1823 and the Chicago Lions under Lions Coach Aaron Manheimer for a few days on the West Coast.

The team took youth to the fields against some very experienced All-Stars and Eagles and came out with a 7th place finish posting a 2-4 record on the weekend. Jamie and Josh scored 3 tries apiece and accounted for half the Midwest tries for the tournament.

More information is available at here. Congrats Jamie and Josh! Well done on the MRFC!
