It’s that time of the year again where the Friday Night Lights are bright and prospects all across the country are starting their high school football season either this week or next weekend.

Like the past years Gator Country is going to do a preview every Thursday for all of the Florida Gators commits and on Monday we will do a full recap including stats and notes from the past weeks games.

This year we are going to also highlight the key players to watch in the game that aren’t Florida Gators commits but rather targets or just big names in the game.

Also we will give you a few games that involve Florida Gators targets from the Class of 2016 and 2017 to watch as well.
