Jaguars to practice in heat of the day during training camp |

The Jaguars are in for a hot summer in training camp. Coach Mike Mularkey said at the end of organized team activities that he preferred afternoon training camp practices, so it wasn’t surprising that the schedule announced by the team Thursday includes just one evening practice — the intrasquad scrimmage Friday, Aug. 3. The Jaguars will have a total of eight training camp practice sessions that will be open to the public, beginning on Friday, July 27, and ending on Sunday, Aug. 5

An inspired climb

Peaking at 19,336 feet above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is the world’s largest free standing mountain. On July 11 Kurt Wisenbaugh, Director of Game and Event Operations with the Jacksonville Jaguars, will begin his trek up this mammoth mountain for a purpose greater than proving to himself that he can make this journey. Wisenbaugh, along with five other individuals from around the world, is taking part in the Make a Difference Kilimanjaro Fundraiser Climb. This goodwill venture will send 22 children from the Kilimanjaro Kids Care Orphanage in Himo, Tanzania to a respected academic school in Himo. Thus far Wisenbaugh has raised more than $5,500 for the cause.
