This Friday, at the Bell Hill Griffin Stadium on the campus of the University of Florida the lights will be turned on at the Swamp for one of the country's top summer camps, Friday Night Lights. Introduced four years ago by football coach Urban Meyer, this particular camp has turned into a big hit for his program.
"Our goal was to have a unique camp that showcases a game-like atmosphere in the Swamp and to attract the top players in America," said Meyer. "It has been a great success."
Richardson, Boyd, Kelly, Alajajian, Brown, Giddens, Bostic, and Kirkpatrick are all members of the Rivals100 while Smith, Newton, Gillislee, Richardson, Wooten, Farms, Mars, Starling, and Kent are included in the Rivals250.
It is expected that close to 200 prospects will be in attendance and there will likely be more rising juniors than seniors. Last year, 168 prospects participated in Friday Night Lights.
