Previewing Florida’s 2015 Friday Night Lights


Mixing pomp and circumstance with football drills and relationship building, the Florida Gators use their annual Friday Night Lights camp at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium as both a recruiting tool and means of evaluating some of the best high school football players in the country.

The Swamp will once again filled with some of the top young talent in the nation on July 24, so much so that covering every player that plans to step on the field is a near impossibility.
