JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville City Council plans to honor one of Jacksonville's favorite sons.
JT Townsend will be honored at Tuesday night's meeting. Townsend died last week of a heart attack.
He was an emerging football star at Episcopal High School until an injury led to him becoming paralyzed.

Townsend didn't let his injury slow him down. He began the JT Townsend Foundation
to help other families in northeast Florida get financial assistance and adaptive equipment.
Leaders plan to continue that mission. Call 904-806-0032 if you want to help.
