JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jaguars’ first practice at training camp was off to a running start as fans of all ages lined up bright and early Thursday for the fun to begin.

Gates opened at 8:15 a.m., 30 minutes before practice began. Fans like Bryan “Jaxe Man” Olive said it was a good time through and through. He said he's been coming to open training camp for years.

“I am always proud of my Jaguars. No matter what-- ups downs, left and right-- I’ve been here through thick and thin," Olive said.

Fans were all decked out in black and teal as they hung out with Jaxson De Ville. Seasoned training camp pros will likely know John “Fan Cam” Port. For the last 24 seasons, he has been handing out homemade chili with no signs of slowing down.

“It became a tradition. Instead of doing it at home, I bring chili out here, give it free to the fans, the concessionaires, the security,” Port said.

With some exciting new additions and big-name veterans, fans said they're looking forward to a great season ahead and a crack at the playoffs.
