Elite Athletes Journey

EST: 2016

Head Coach: Eric Washington Jr.

Eric Washington Jr, The founder, owner and operator of Elite Athletes Journey and Express 7v7. Express 7v7 was started in 2016 for high school kids to gain more experience by playing the sport of football. I wanted to build a brotherhood where these young men could learn from each other and talk about the struggles of being a Student Athlete. Everyone of my players is required to attend some sort of community out reach. Whether its feeding the homeless or reading to young kids building quality young men is my number one focus. “Respect The Process”(RTP) is our motto.

Express 7v7 will be competing at the GetSportsfocus Rapid Fire 7v7 Tournament 3/3/18 @ Fremont HS(Sunnyvale)
