Thompson ready to impress Gators again

Gainesville (Fla.) wide receiver Chris Thompson is looking forward to this Friday night July 27. The 6-foot-0, 167-pound receiver will have a chance to impress Florida's coaches yet again when he makes the short trip to Florida's campus in order to compete in Friday Night Lights. Thompson hopes that his performance will bring him one step closer to earning an offer from the Gators.

"I'll be at Friday Night Lights," Chris Thompson said. "I've been working hard to get ready for [Friday Night Lights]. I've just been working on the small things to get better," he said.

The talented wide receiver has already talked to the coaches about attending Friday Night Lights.

"I talked to [Florida wide receivers coach Aubrey Hill] on Friday," he said.

"I was just asking about camp and he was telling me that he had just gotten back from his vacation," he added.

Although Coach Hill did not mention an offer, Thompson is optimistic about the future.

"Coach Hill told me to call him back later this week," he said.

Since he has already impressed Florida's coaches at camp before, Thompson is looking forward to the opportunity to do it again. If all goes well, Thompson will have a chance to play for the hometown school at the next level.
