JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sharks will go for history at home Saturday night when they host the Corpus Christi Rage.

The Sharks are currently 6-0 and in first place in the National Arena League. With a win the Sharks will be 7-0 for the first time in their seven year history.

They will have to win without quarterback Tommy Grady, who suffered a high ankle sprain at Monterrey two weeks ago. Grady has been placed on injured reserve but unlike the NFL he can come back at any time. However Grady said this week he is done for the year and will be back next year.

In Grady's absence Damien Fleming led the Sharks to a 37-28 win over Columbus last week. Fleming, a Ribault graduate, was 16 of 22 for 190 yards and threw three touchdown passes. Fleming also added a TD run to seal the game.

It's Military Appreciation night at the Veterans Memorial Arena. Kickoff set for 7 p.m. Saturday.
