The highly anticipated DR7 7v7 season has kicked off this weekend in Houston, TX, and it has already lived up to the hype. With over 105 teams participating, the event was held at C.E King School and featured some of the top Texas talent mixed in with some Louisiana boys. The first day of the event was action-packed with some thrilling matchups, and we witnessed some standout performances from the participants. As the championship Sunday approaches, let’s take a look at some of the Day One standouts who made a significant impact on the field.
Jack Daulton | QB | 2026 | The Woodlands | @JackDaulton10
Daulton ended Day One as one of the more accurate passers throughout the tournament. He was able to lead The Woodland’s 18U squad to an undefeated 3-0 record with the 1st seed heading into championship Sunday. The 6’2, 175-pound sophomore gunslinger was throwing dimes today and should catch some attention on championship Sunday.
Andrew Taylor Wood | QB | 2028 | @at_wood09
Team: 14U Undefeated Outlaws
Wood finished as my top underclassmen from the 14U bracket because of his natural throwing ability and arm strength showed off in two games I watched. The 2028 riser displayed good decision making skills for his age with a strong arm to zip passes around.
Aiden Martin | QB | 2025 | Tomball Memorial | @23aidenmartin
I left Day One really impressed with this kid’s ability to just play smart with the ball and lead his team with no coach calling plays on the field. Martin was another accurate QB with good ball placement on his throws. He put the ball where it needed to be plenty of times but his IQ to read defenses presnap is what stood out.
Landon Kieselhorst | QB | 2025 | Deer Park
I didn’t watch much of Kieselhorst compete on Day One but you can’t miss a 6-6 QB prospect with good arm talent and mechanics when working in the pocket. Have to get my eyes on this kid on championship Sunday to give a true breakdown of his game. Kieselhorst is a dual-sport athlete that has a future on the gridiron or baseball diamond.
Cole Morkovsky | QB | 2024 | Pearland | @ColeMorkovsky
Team: TTG Sports
A productive senior season for Morkovsky who showed off his advanced arm talent and ability to make the right throw on Day One. Tough go for TTG who has the ability to change things around tomorrow for some wins where it counts. This kid has an impressive arm for sure.
Best of the Rest:
Cameron Nunley | QB | 2027 | Conroe | @cameron2nunley
Nunley is the younger brother of talented QB prospect Christian Nunley and make no doubt about it this kid can sling it. He had a decent Day One playing with Texas Fury. Look out for Nunley to continue working on his mechanics where his arm talent can really shine.
Gabriel Couisnard | QB | 2028 | @GGcousy
This kid has a solid day where I watched him throw a few dots in two games. Has decent QB mechanics and put the ball where it needs to be. He’s continuing to develop at the position.
