This past Sunday, Boom completed their 7-on-7 with a double-elimination tournament held at St. Francis High School. There was plenty of talent on hand, even though this kind of format is designed to highlight wide receivers and tight ends, there were plenty of defenders that stood out. Here are the linebackers, corners and safeties that made an impression during the four hours of competition.

2022 Safety Khary Shaw, Brother Rice @KharyShaw

Shaw’s team made it to the finals and he was a big part of it. Constantly directing his teammates and calling out defensive alignments, Shaw was clearly a leader on their defense. A great frame at 6’2” and around 200-pounds, could ultimately outgrow the position and become an outside linebacker. Either way, Shaw has a high ceiling.

2021 Safety Ben Perry, Mount Carmel @perry_ben10

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to see Perry’s name on this list, as a Louisville commit he should stand out. Long, athletic, and rangy doesn’t quite tell Perry’s whole story. Perry was constantly communicating with his teammates, showing his high football IQ. The Cardinals are getting a very good prospect.
