The Atlanta Falcons will conduct a combined practice with the Tennessee Titans in Dalton, Ga., at Coahulla Creek High School on Monday. This marks the third consecutive year the Falcons have participated in combined practices with other NFL teams.
Falcons Football Night in Dalton is presented by Brooker Ford, Georgia Army National Guard, and Kimberly-Clark. The event is open to the public and admission is free. This grass roots event includes a fan fest with interactive inflatable games, cheerleader autographs, sponsor activation, and a post-event autograph session. Gates open at 3:30 p.m. and action on the field starts at 4:30 p.m. The Falcons hosted combined practices with the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars in 2010, and traveled to Jacksonville for combined practices in 2011.
"The National Football League is considered the highest level of competition in football. I can't think of a more exciting way to begin the school year and the football season than attending a professional football combined practice," said Danny Hayes, Whitfield County Schools Superintendent. "Sports and sports media is a powerful force in today's society and this event can bring together thousands of families from Georgia and Tennessee. We thank head coach Mike Smith and the Falcons organization for allowing us to host this event and hope that you will join the Atlanta Falcons, the Tennessee Titans, and Coahulla Creek High School as the teams and players reach out to our community."
The Falcons would like to thank Brooker Ford, Georgia Army National Guard, and Kimberly-Clark as well as Russell Athletic, SunTrust Bank, Coca Cola, and The Home Depot for making Falcons Football Night in Dalton possible.
