Jags new No. 1 fan has no ties to Jacksonville

By Scott Johnson - Reporter

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A New York teen has become one of the Jaguars biggest fans and oddly enough this teen has no link to North Florida.

Collin Giuliani is 16-year-old and from Long Island, N.Y. The teen has his family fly him to Jacksonville multiple times each season to watch the Jags where they have season tickets. The teen and his family even flew to London for the game their this year.

"I just liked the logo," Giuliani said. "I was looking at the Jags. I was a fan in '05 when they started and were doing good. So that had something to do with it. So I stayed on it since".

His dad George said he's the only person they know in Long Island who follows the Jaguars. "He was about five years old and just fell in love with the jaguars. I don't know if it was the Lion King or .. but whatever happened he fell in love. We got Sirius radio so he could listen to the games, then we got NFL package so we could watch the games. Then we became season ticket holders," said George Giuliani.

The teen even met Shad Khan at a hotel in Jacksonville. He says Khan and the team have been very gracious to him and have given him tickets to both the London game and NFL draft.
