Dalyn Bearden’s job on Frenship’s 7-on-7 team is relatively simple.

Snap the ball to quarterback Trevor Lloyd.

Take a knee.

Repeat.

“I just work on snaps, go on a knee and tell Trevor if someone’s open that’s he’s not seeing,” the center said. “That’s about what I do.”

Although the former left tackle is getting plenty of reps each weekend at 7-on-7 tournaments as he plans to take over full-time duties as center in the fall, the real focus of the summer program is growing an offense’s cohesiveness.

The Tigers will get one last chance at the offseason game today and Saturday in College Station at the state 7-on-7 tournament.

“The offense has really grown a lot,” Bearden said. “We’re getting all of our routes out. It really works together. 7-on-7 is kind of like backyard football, and it’s mostly fun for us.”

Frenship, the only area team qualified for this weekend’s tournament, is led by coach Stacy Booher.

Booher, in his 13th season with the team, said the Tigers have greatly improved since the start of the summer, which began with an inauspicious 0-3 record at an Abilene tournament.

Since the winless tourney, the Tigers went 2-1 on their home field a week later and culminated with four consecutive wins in Odessa at the end of June to qualify for the state tournament.

“I think the main thing is just building camaraderie, leadership in the lockerroom,” Booher said, “and it just gives the receivers and the quarterbacks a chance to work on timing and their routes and their catching.”

Lloyd, a junior, participated in his first 7-on-7 team this summer, and Booher said the quarterback has improved immensely.

Bearden, who said he’s learned enough about route running and timing to harp on Booher to let him go out for one, echoed the coach’s sentiments.

“I’ve known Trevor for a long time,” Bearden said. “I’ve known his sisters, his brothers. He’s a real good quarterback. He’s going to do really good. We’ve got it down almost, and it’s not even two-a-days yet.”

There are 20 four-team pools in the Tigers’ division this weekend, and Frenship is grouped with Katy Cinco Ranch, Wylie East and Stony Point in Pool K. All pool play is conducted today.

The top two teams in each pool will advance to the championship round, while the bottom two advance to the consolation round.

Frenship also competed at the state tournament last season, finishing 1-2 in pool play.

Cade Davis, the only returning player from last year’s team, said last year’s fall team benefited from the 7-on-7 play, and this year should also pay dividends

“The main thing is just helping with the team chemistry, and that’s what’s good about this year,” he said. “All the 7-on-7 — the receivers, Trevor, the defense — all the players are really close together, and that’s going to help us a lot during the season.”
