Jacksonville Jaguars Training Camp

Jaguars Training Camp

It seems only fitting to repurpose this post on Super Bowl Sunday! I love looking back through these old photos of my boy. I hope you'll enjoy them, as well. After all, Gus Bradley is no longer the head coach of the Jaguars. This is like real history stuff right here! :)

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that Jonah started playing football at a local park. What began as a way for him to get out and exercise a couple of times a week with friends turned into a passion for him. When he started in the Spring it was a training camp type thing. Once he decided he loved it, we signed him up for the full-fledged game practicing. Jonah eats, breaths and sleeps FOOTBALL!

A while back, I read on Twitter that the Jacksonville Jaguars opened up 13 practices to the public. All I needed to do was go online and sign up for the dates we wanted. We went to two.

A couple of weeks ago Jonah and I went to EverBank Field to experience the Jacksonville Jaguars first Training Camp of the 2014 NFL football season.

Before heading towards the stadium we stopped at WalMart for a football. Jonah was so excited to be able to get autographs from a bunch of the players. And boy, did he get a LOT of autographs!! {as a momma, I was super bummed for him when the ONE player he waited for wouldn't stop to sign a football card because his family was with him. Chad Henne, Jonah was super upset but, he looks forward to getting your autograph really soon!}

On the days that we went to the practices, the temperatures were in the 90's and the heat index was near or over 100 degrees. It was HOT! I have no idea how those football players practice in that heat. It was sure fun to see it all happen, though. Living in Jacksonville, in a city with an NFL football is so cool. Never before were we really football fans. We certainly weren't Jaguars fans. But, now having a football player, our family has a new appreciation for what's right in our backyard. We LOVE our Jaguars!!

{Here's a BUNCH of pictures from the first practice and of Jonah getting autographs. Enjoy!}
