Stations will be designated by position group on each sideline, and Pruitt will have a separate table. Fans can also take part in photo stations, enter to win contests, Kids Corner activities, and more.
Fans interested in attending the post-practice autograph session on the field will need to secure a wristband as they enter Gate 21.
