Jaguars will sport pink against the Saints

New, comments

When the Jacksonville Jaguars take on the New Orleans Saints tomorrow, they will be sporting a little bit of pink on the field to go with their all-white jerseys.

At their October 2 game, the team will be led out onto the field by a player carrying a pink breast cancer awareness flag. Pink ribbons providing breast cancer detection information will be given to fans. Pink hats also will be on sale, with all proceeds going towards breast cancer research. Cheerleaders will wear pink and white jerseys and will use pink pom poms. The anthem will be performed by Crystal Hoyt, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor, and the American field flags will be held by 60 breast cancer survivors. The honorary captain will be a local breast cancer survivor.

I'm not sure which players will be wear pink attire, but I know tight end Marcedes Lewis did last season. I'm sure multiple players will.
