Spencer County Middle School will host the 1st Annual Louis Mulkey Memorial 7 on 7 Passing Tournament this Saturday. The tournament will feature the following teams: Spencer County, Bloomfield, Frankfort, Gallatin County, Lexington Catholic, and TK Stone Middle Schools. Action will begin at 9:30 a.m.

SCMS Coach J.T. Bass said, “7 on 7 passing tournaments are still a very new concept at the middle school level. They are different from regular football in that players don’t tackle one another and every play is a pass play. It forces teams to focus on passing fundamentals for offense and pass coverages for defense.”

The tournament is being held in memory of Louis Mulkey who was one of 9 Charleston, SC firefighters lost on June 18, 2007, in a sofa warehouse fire. Captain Mulkey coached football at Summerville SC High School and was assigned to Charleston’s Engine #15 along with Coach Bass for several years. Mulkey was the subject of an ESPN “Outside the Lines Documentary” and a movie is currently in the works about his life story.
