The Texas A&M football team had their second open scrimmage on Friday night in a made-for-recruiting event known as "Friday Night Lights." Multiple Aggies stood out during their second opportunity to perform in front of a live audience in the Spring.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer started "Friday Night Lights" or FNL when he was the head coach of the Florida Gators. In Meyer's version of the event, recruits from around the country would compete with each other in drills at a one-day football camp.
Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin tweaked Meyer's idea when he arrived in Aggieland in 2012. He has the FNL event during spring practice and has the Aggies scrimmage while recruits watch from the stands.
In the 2013 version of the event on Friday, Sumlin brought in a live disc jockey to play rap music throughout the stadium.

The event is another opportunity for the Aggie coaches to show off the program to prospective recruits and their families. It also represents one more chance for current Aggie players to show the coaches what they can do in a game-like situation.
