Boiling Springs (South Carolina) didn’t let being a No. 25 seed prevent them from having an outstanding day in the championship bracket of the USA Football 7 on 7 National Championships at Hoover High School in Alabama. The Bulldogs disposed of No. 1 seeded Walton (Georgia) in the quarterfinals and then beat No. 5 McGill-Toolen (Alabama) in the semis before taking-down host and No. 3 seed Hoover 29-17 in the championship game.
