JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Fans are itching with excitement as kick off to the Jaguars first home game of the season gets nearer. "Really looking forward to the game on Sunday. Hopefully it'll be our first win this year," says Anna Yazden.
This season, the Jags have made it all about the fans. They will be handing out rally towels and Khan-staches, as well as opening the Sea Best Cool Zone.
And for the very first time, fans are invited to witness 'The Prowl', an up close look at the players as they enter the field.
Jags fan Ted Smith, "I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of fan involvement and a lot more people out there this year." "The fans always come together and have such a great time," says fan Alison Tinsley.
Sports Mania in the St. Johns Town Center was filled Friday with fans gearing up for the game. Sports Mania Manager Jeff Fingland says, "It's been great. The fans are coming out in droves, every body's excited. It's going to be a good year."
Fingland says the Saturday before the first home game is their single busiest day of the year. "Things are flying off the shelves. As far as the jerseys going out of here. I can't keep the Blackmon jerseys in stock right now they're going great. All the t-shirts the hats, the coaches sideline shirts," says Fingland.
And once fans have their gear, they're all in for the game. "It's going to be exciting to see all those changes," says Ted Smith. Anna Yazden says, "New coach, new quarterback, new era, new players. It should be a good new season."
