AWP team sixth at national tourney

Fort Wayne’s Athletes with Purpose finished in sixth at the IMG 7 v 7 National Championship football tournament in Bradenton, Florida, on Sunday.

AWP won three in a row, beating Southern Xpress Elite from Tennessee (33-27), Rat Pak from Orlando, Florida, (32-15) and BBT from California (26-24, OT).

AWP’s first loss came against the Florida Fire, 30-17, and the final loss came against BBT 25-19, which meant elimination. AWP finished with a 6-3 record.

The Florida Fire won the tournament.

“The quarterbacks played much better today,” AWP Sports president and CEO Mike Ledo said, “and when Justin Tranquill (Carroll) got hurt with a knee injury in the second game, the younger players stepped up.”
