Over the weekend of March 11th – 13th, North Texas ODP hosted round robin games against ODP teams from Georgia, South Texas, and El Paso. The Sub-Regional served as the final event to close out the 2020-21 season of State programming, as well as a last chance opportunity for players to be evaluated and selected for the Region ID Event, being held in Tennessee next month. As an added bonus multiple college coaches came out to the event and scouted ODP players for their respective programs. Click HERE for pictures from this event.
