JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's the most exciting moment at any football game, but you won't see any Jaguar players celebrating after a touchdown in EverBank Field.
You can spike it, shake, bounce or even river dance. But this year the Jacksonville Jaguars will be doing one thing in the end zone.
"Coach Malarkey made it clear that he wants us to hand the ball to the ref," said wide receiver, Brian Robiskie.
Every time a player scores and hands the football to a referee, head coach Mike Malarkey donates $250 to the Ronald McDonald House. And the Jaguars matches it.
"I'm not really good at dancing anyway. I don't have any rhythm. So it's not like I can do anything even if I did score a touchdown. So I might as well hand it to the ref," said tight end, Matt Veldman.
"It's even bigger to know you are helping off the field," said running back, Montell Owens.
The Ronald McDonald House provides free housing for families with critically sick children who are being treated in Jacksonville. But these players say it will still be easier said than done.
"It's a great moment. The crowd gets into it. But you think about the kids," said Robiskie.
"If it's a game in the regular season, and if I am lucky enough to catch it than I will keep that ball. I may just right a check out to the kids," said Veldman.
After the Giants preseason game, Coach Mularkey and the Jaguars will be giving $2500. "Some of the guys on the team have kids so it means a lot to them," said Robiskie.
Kicker Josh Scobee and the Jaguars also donated $10,000 to the Wolfson's Children Hospital last year through his Kick for Kids program.
You can join the Jaguars in helping the Ronald McDonald House. Twenty dollars will be donated for every preseason game ticket you buy through its Give and Go website. Just click on http://npc.nonprofitctr.org/shell/jaguars_tickets.asp.
