JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jaguars fans packed the parking lot outside of TIAA Bank Field for the players send off, Friday. While we know most of the city is rooting for a Jags win, there is one super fan who said she never had a doubt in her mind.
“I’m glad to say and I show that I love the Jaguars,” Bridgett Walton said.
The inside of her car has specially ordered ‘Jaguars’ mats, jaguar-print head rests, and other small, football trinkets.
As for the outside of her home, Walton has a Jaguars flag waving proudly.
“I won’t take that flag down until the season is over,” Walton said, despite the flag looking tattered and ripped. “It’s gotta stay there. You see that little tear there. We’ve have some rough times in the beginning. But, we doing good now and it’s still hanging.”
Not only is Walton’s car and exterior of her home decked out with teal and blue, but the inside is even better.
“I show my pride everywhere,” Walton said.

She has calendars with the team dating back to 1999. Walton showed Action News Jax reporter, Meghan Moriarty, two footballs—who she said—were thrown to her by former player, Donovin Darius.
“I always get to the games early,” Walton said. “They would be out there practicing, and I stand up there and do like this and he [Darius] threw me some balls.”
Walton’s favorite Jaguars trinket: her prayer angel.
“I prayer for the Jaguars all the time,” Walton said. “When they’re playing and when they’re not, so we can get some good players, and they healthy.”
It’s Walton’s faith and pride in the Jaguars that have her hopeful game after game.

“If the jaguars can know one thing, all of us back here at home we’re gonna be hollering and we’re gonna be doing the same thing they’re doing there,” Walton said. “So, just know we got ya’ll back.”
