- June 8: Youth Camp
- June 9: 7-on-7 Camp
- June 11: Women’s Clinic

The Friday Night Lights camp has garnered quite a bit of attention since the event started under former coach Mike Riley. Last year, several Nebraska commits attended the event (though not all competed on the field). In addition, several 2020 targets attended last year’s event, including offensive lineman Turner Corcoran, and in-state wide receivers Zavier Betts and Xavier Watts.
