Summer of 2018, JB Barnes founded Pro Baller 7v7 Team. This 7on7 football program will focus on: high school players to compete at a high level, better their overall football skills, timing, and get on the same page with other players on this team in a fun, and exciting way. They will be taught leadership skills, shown how to study and break down film and they will receive speed and agility training while participating in this program.
