The Shore Sports Network along with the Shore Football Coaches Foundation today announced that Sportz Farm is the title sponsor for the Shore Conference 7-on-7 Tournament, which runs in conjunction with the Shore Sports Network All-Shore Gridiron Classic, presented by InVision Eye Care.

The 41st All-Shore Gridiron Classic is set for Thursday, July 12 at Brick Memorial High School and features recently graduated players from Monmouth and Ocean County.

Sportz Farm is a nationally-recognized organization with significant ties to the Shore Conference under the leadership of Executive Director Diteko Hammary, a Monmouth County native who has won five state championships and three national titles as a player, coach and administrator. Hammary, who also serves as a recruiting specialists said, “We are looking forward to our role in this year’s Gridiron Classic. We recognize that all the participants are students and citizens first. Sportz Farm seeks to fill a void in the communities where youth often prioritize sports over academics.”

While the Gridiron Classic is for those seniors who just graduated, the 7-on-7 tournament features underclassmen, who in many cases will be among the top players in the Shore this fall. On Monday, July 9 Monmouth County teams will participate in a qualifying event at Matawan High School while at the same time Ocean County teams will be at Southern Regional High School. The two county champions will then meet on the field at Brick Memorial just prior to the Gridiron Classic to determine the Shore Conference 7-on-7 champion. Last year, Long Branch defeated Central Regional and the Green Wave went on to win an NJSIAA state sectional title in December.

Sportz Farm is a NJ-based 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that seeks to bridge a disconnect that exists between local student athletes’ athletic prowess and their failure to shift that talent past the high school level. Student-athletes are provided with everything they need from online recruiting profiles, personalized email solicitations to college coaches, highlight reel assistance, academic tutoring, college application and essay writing guidance college placement assistance and much more.
