  • The McPherson High School football team will be testing it’s mettle this weekend, as it will be one of 32 teams in the Southwest Elite 7-on-7 Showcase at Shiloh Christian School in Springdale, Ark.
    The Bullpups, coming off a run into the Class 4A State Quarterfinals in 2012, will be facing off with teams from Arkansas, Illinois, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas during the tournament, which starts tomorrow and finishes on Saturday. Other Kansas teams involved include Derby and Olathe North.
    The Pups open up pool play tomorrow at 9 a.m. Stillwater, Okla. The Pioneers were 3-7 in 2012 and return 10 starters.
    McPherson will play seven times Friday as part of Pool A, and their record coming into Saturday will determine where MHS is seeded for bracket play on Saturday.
    The Southwest Elite 7-on-7 Showcase has been in existence since 2009. Fayetteville, Ark., won the 2012 edition of the tournament. Past players who have participated in the showcase include Auburn’s Kiehl Fraizer and Missouri’s Dorial Green-Beckham.
