DARIUS AT DAILY'S PLACE
The Sports Complex is pulling double duty on Sunday with two feature events to entertain football and music fans. Following the Jaguars game against the Jets, Daily's Place will welcome multi-platinum and Grammy Award-winning artist Darius Rucker to the amphitheater stage at 7:30 p.m. A limited number of tickets are still available at www.dailysplace.com, and the concert is likely to be sold out by Sunday. Fans attending only the concert should plan to arrive at Daily's Place no earlier than 5 p.m. After halftime of the Jaguars game, traffic patterns around TIAA Bank Field will be reversed to allow for a more efficient egress following the game. Normal ingress will resume at approximately 5 p.m.
THE FIRST "DUUUVAL"
Two Jaguars legends have kickstarted the team's all-new game day tradition in style. This week, the Jaguars will welcome some local talent from a different sport to lead the fans in the first "DUUUVAL" of the game. This week the microphone atop the southeast flagpole will be turned over to the Jaguars official golf ambassador, Julian Suri. Suri, a resident of St. Augustine, is a rising star in the golf world, currently ranked No. 69 in the Official World Golf Rankings. The first "DUUUVAL" is presented by Duval Motor Company.
Following team introductions, the colors will be presented by representatives of the 125th Fighter Wing of the Florida Air National Guard. The national anthem will be performed the Jacksonville Symphony Brass Ensemble, with sign language interpretation by Kasey Slobodian. Following the anthem, two F-22 Raptors of the 95th Fighter Squadron from Tyndall Air Force Base will perform the flyover. The American field flags will be held by first-year season ticket members.
JUNIOR ROAR TAKE THE FIELD
On Sunday afternoon, nearly 200 Junior ROAR participants will entertain the crowd with a halftime performance. The Junior ROAR program invites children between the ages of 6 and 17 to show off their dance moves and team spirit in a routine taught by members of THE ROAR of the Jaguars. Sunday's routine marks the 24th annual performance by the Junior ROAR, which started during the team's inaugural season. The Junior ROAR program is presented by Fuel Up to Play 60.
During the game, the Jaguars will honor retired U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Claude Trucks as the Veteran of the Game. A WWII veteran of Patton's 3rd Army, 5th Infantry Division, Trucks was wounded three times, once while crossing the Sauer River during the Battle of the Bulge. He received a Purple Heart with two clusters and the Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Clusters. The SunPass® Hometown Hero will be presented posthumously to Jacksonville police officer Lance Whitaker, who was killed on May 15 in a vehicle crash while on duty and responding to a call. He will be represented on the field by members of his family. The First Data Veteran-Owned Business of the Game, honored in the third quarter, is Career Development Consultants Group, represented by CEO Jeff Robertson, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, and Vice President Mary Maszy, a 15-year U.S. Navy veteran. As the game enters the 4th quarter, the Navy Mutual Bell Ringer is Lt. Cmdr. Al Dozier, who will officially retire this Sunday after 20 years of service with the U.S. Navy, including eight deployments. Dozier is also a recipient of the Purple Heart and Navy Commendation with Valor for injuries during his first deployment to Afghanistan.
