FLOWERY BRANCH – The Falcons “Friday Night Lights” program is staying in Gwinnett County for the third consecutive year.
The event was held at Grady High School before being staged at Mill Creek High in 2008 and Brookwood High in 2009.
The “Friday Night Lights” scrimmage will be held at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 6 at North Gwinnett High in Suwanee.
The scrimmage is open to the public and admission is free.
This grass roots event includes a fan fest with interactive inflatable games, face painting, sponsor activation, a post event autograph session and a spectacular fireworks show. During the live scrimmage, Falcons coach Mike Smith, Falcons quarterbacks, and certain position players will be mic’d so fans can get an in depth look “inside the huddle” during the scrimmage. WXIA-TV also will be broadcasting live from the event.
“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.”
