A Maryland boy with a heart for Jacksonville


Hi my name is Zach. I am from Maryland. I remember my first football game I ever had watched. It was the Jaguars versus the Ravens. As it became 1999&2000 I remember watching the Jaguars more closely and becoming obsessed with them. Remember I had the Ravens I could root for but I gravitated towards the Jaguars. Something about this team up until the Gene Smith era made them feel magical.

Then came the Smith era and the inconsistency, it made me feel like giving up especially in 09/10 but I stayed. I felt the magic would came around again. I felt even when I was bullied by my high school classmates and hearing they are moving jokes or are you guys going to get Teb(l)ow. When the team was sold, I was afraid it might becoming true. I thank God it didn't because of Shadid and his new regime. It also hadn't help that the ravens had won their 2nd Super Bowl before the Jaguars.

The magic has been revived with the positive energy.

I still argue with these raven fans but with the change of times it seems easier because the retorts they use are the same old stuff we hear but we know aren't true. The regime has done a bang up job at changing the view of the roster. The moving jokes seem to have ended and the organization and Bold City is strengthing the spirit and the magic that first captured my attention. I may not be from Duval but I am Jaguar fan til the day I die. I am Generation Jaguar because I did grow up watching this team. So as I enter my college years as a student of Jacksonville U. I hope the magic has truly returned and I grow in my college years with the rebirthed team.
