The Atlanta Falcons will hold its third annual Friday Night Lights team scrimmage at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 6 at North Gwinnett High in Suwanee. Friday Night Lights is open to the public and admission is free.
During the live scrimmage, Falcons coach Mike Smith, Falcons quarterbacks, and certain position players will be wired with microphones so fans can get an in depth look inside the huddle. The first two Friday Night Lights scrimmages were at Brookwood High School in 2009 and Mill Creek High in 2008. Each scrimmage has been played in front of capacity crowds the past two years.
“This is a special event for not only our fans, but for our players as well,” said Smith. “Our guys love going back to their roots and playing under the lights at a high school field every year. This event provides us the opportunity to reach out to the community and give our fans a chance to get up close and personal with our team as we prepare for the 2010 season.”
