2007 Passing Down was created as the brainchild of El Lee and NFL veteran Cameron Worrell. Their aim was to build a football development entity that "passed down" to high school athletes the necessary skills and exposure to reach the next level of competition. Lee and Worrell initially held an annual summer high school football camp in Central California. Their 'Camp with the Pros' featured NFL players as camp instructors and quickly established Passing Down as a leading athlete development venture in the state of California.
2010 Mario Gomez joined Lee and Worrell to expand the Passing Down concept into its elite 7on7 passing tournament phenomenon. During the summer of 2010, Passing Down held its first annual high school elite 7on7 Best Of The West tournament. Best Of The West has now grown into a prestigious 18-team qualifying championship final from tournament events held in major regions in the Western United States. Passing Down added a junior high 7on7 tournament of combined 6-8th grade teams seeking early skill development and elite competition.
Today Passing Down has become the premier stage on the West Coast for junior high and high school elite 7on7 football competition and college football recruiting exposure. Now conducting tournaments in four states, Passing Down is recognized as the first ever California statewide elite 7on7 tournament covered nationally by ESPN, Scout, Rivals, XOS Digital, 247Sports, and other media outlets. From a grassroots summer football camp to nationally recognized 7on7 tournament events, Passing Down remains committed to youth and to the future of football.
