Falcons Training Camp: Team Ready For Annual 'Friday Night Lights' Practice

The Atlanta Falcons will head to Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee for the teams' "Friday Night Lights" practice event. The gates open for the event at 6 p.m. and the Falcons are expected to take the field at around 6:45 with the scrimmage starting at 7:30 p.m.

Fans in attendance shouldn't be disappointed as head coach Mike Smith expects six full-speed series with live contact for everyone but the quarterbacks who will be in non-contact jerseys. Smith talked with the AJC about the event and how much the team enjoys them.

"The entire session won't be live, but there'll be enough opportunities for the guys to go out and compete. It's one of the most fun things for our guys, believe it or not, they love to go back to the high school fields, and get on the grass and play in a small arena. They're going to get a chance to do that on Friday, and come back and do it on Monday up in Dalton. We're real excited to go up to Peachtree Ridge."
