ST JOHNS - Class was in session for the Jaguars on Monday night as the team practiced at Bartram Trail High School. This was the first training camp session away from Everbank Field since its inaugural season in 1995.
"It's great practicing at our home field and at our facilities, but to pick up and come to a different facility and to be asked to perform at a high level, that was a challenge," said head coach Gus Bradley. "I thought that was really good for our team to come here in this environment and they really enjoyed it."
A crowd of 3,329 were on hand to watch the Jaguars compete under the lights. The Jaguars were forced to close registration last week after 2,500 fans signed up online.
"It's a great experience for us to come out here, more than 3,300 people for a practice," said Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny. "It shows us that a lot of people are behind us. We're excited about it. That's obviously what we want as a team and as an organization.
The team gets a much needed day off on Tuesday. They return to practice on Wednesday morning at 9:55 for the first day of full pads.
