First& 10 WELCOME TO THE SEVENTH ANNUAL FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL FLORIDA
FOR THE SEVENTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR,
we are proud to present Friday Night
Football Florida magazine.
So much goes into making this magazine
a reality every year. It takes a lot of communicating, planning, coordinating and writing. It
is fun, but also a lot of work, with some anxiety and debate tossed in for good measure.
It’s no longer just about the magazine’s print
edition, it also includes our digital edition, our
website and two recently launched events –
the RecruitBomb-FNF Magazine Camp Series
and the Fling ‘N’ Fly 7v7 tournament series.
But when things get cluttered, as they
always do, we remind ourselves of the No. 1
reason why we do this year after year.
We do this for you. But who are you? You
are the student-athlete working on his game
as I type this. You are a coaching staff currently assessing personnel and schemes. You
are parents, guardians and families making
sacrifices to keep a young man’s dream alive.
And you are the fans who are eagerly antici-
pating another season of making memories.
So much goes into bringing Florida high
school football to life, but it’s all about you.
You are Friday Night Football. You are FNF.
Enjoy the season!
