One of the [few] recruiting advantages Nebraska has is the passionate fan base that shows up in droves for anything related to their beloved football team. With that in mind, the athletic department is inviting fans to attend football camps starting this Friday June 11 and continuing throughout the month.
This isn’t the first time Nebraska has opened up camps to fans, but it will be the first time since the pandemic started. Husker fans filling seats to watch high school students go through camp drills makes an impression on recruits.
From the AD:
Nebraska Football will open Memorial Stadium to fans for four camps this month, beginning this Friday with the first of two Friday Night Lights camps. Each of the four camps will be free to the public.
The other camps include the second Friday Night Lights camp (June 18), the Huskers’ 7 on 7 Camp (June 13) and the adidas Pipeline OL/DL Camp (June 19).
The following information will assist fans who intend to attend any of the four camps at Memorial Stadium this month:
Both Friday Night Lights events will take place from approximately 6-8 p.m., with gates to the stadium open at 5 p.m. Fans may enter the Stadium through Gate 3 on the Southwest Corner of Memorial Stadium.
The 7-on-7 camp is scheduled for Sunday, June 13, with pool play beginning at approximately 9:30 a.m. Stadium gates will open at 9 a.m.
