You can thank former Sturgeon Bay football player Chris Greisen for saving the fall for several local football players.
According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Greisen was working on developing the The Friday Night Showcase, a 7-on-7 non-contact league that plans to begin next month. He has since turned the keys over to Steve Childers, who is part of the National Youth Football Organization. Greisen has been organizing 7 on 7 tournaments for a long time, even after he accepted a role to coach at West De Pere High School. The hope is 16 teams would participate in the league, which has a $2,500 registration fee and would play its games at Capital Credit Union Park in Ashwaubenon.
