The Jacksonville Jaguars were established in 1993 as an expansion team from the NFL. Notable Jaguars players include Fred Taylor, Maurice Jones-Drew and Tony Boselli. Their home stadium is the TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville. Even though they have not won any Super Bowl titles, they have won 3 Division Championships, the most recent one being in 2017.
When Shad Khan bought the Jaguars in 2011, he completely revamped the team. Wishing for a more realistic and fierce image, he changed the team's colors and logos to be more bold.
In the past, the Jaguars wore their white home jerseys at home, which forced other teams to wear a darker color in the Florida heat. Now the home uniforms have been completely redesigned to be black with hints of teal and gold.
The Jacksonville Jaguar Foundation is the Jaguars' organization that began in 1994 and works to improve communities around the area. Initiatives include reducing tobacco usage and other financial support for handicapped veterans. The Foundation gives a million dollars every year to other organizations that help less fortunate families.
The Jacksonville Jaguars' mascot is Jaxson De Ville-and he is known for being a crowd favorite. He makes notable entrances to games like parachuting into Bank Field, climbing down the side of the scoreboard and even bungee jumping. Jaxson De Ville also makes appearances when the Jacksonville Roar cheerleaders perform. There are certain opportunities where young children can perform with the Jacksonville Roar.
