The most important weekend in Billy Napier’s Florida tenure to date is here. Florida’s annual Friday Night Lights event and Saturday’s recruiting cookout are the backdrops for what could be a massive momentum boost for the Florida Gators.

Friday is the Gators’ annual Friday Night Lights recruiting event where players get one-on-one work with Florida coaches and staff inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Saturday’s cookout is a new tactic Napier’s staff hopes will show the more personal side of Napier’s revamped Florida Gators program.

Prospects from the 2023, 2024 and 2025 classes will attend this weekend. All prospects will be able to see the Gators’ new James W. Heavener Football Training Center. While its doors have not officially opened (athletic director Scott Stricklin stated it would be ready by the end of July) the recruits will get a first look at the $85 million facility.
