    The Jacksonville Jaguars Starting Quarterback This Season Will Be Blake Bortles.

    Just one week after head coach Doug Marrone suggested that the job was up for grabs, the Jaguars starting quarterback competition has reportedly been settled. The man to lead the offense for your 2017-2018 Jacksonville Jaguars will be Blake Bortles. Coach Doug Marrone has picked fourth-year player Blake Bortles over Chad Henne to be the team's starter for the Sept. 10 season opener at Houston, a surprising turnaround for a player whose career with the team seemed to be in jeopardy a week ago.

    Coach Marrone gave Chad Henne the start in Jacksonville’s third preseason game, but was apparently unimpressed by Henne’s 8-of-14, 73-yard performance. Bortles was better, connecting on 12 of 16 throws for 125 yards and a touchdown. 

    Bortles has started the last 45 regular season games for the Jaguars, but a dreadful start to the 2017 preseason following his downturn in 2016 led Doug Marrone to bench him in favor of Chad Henne for the third preseason contest. Henne went 8 of 14 for 73 yards while getting sacked three times with the first-team offense, while Bortles completed 12 of 16 passes for 125 yards, a touchdown and a pick with the subs. 

    Despite his downturn in production, the Jag...   [Read More]

    Tickets For Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio Go On Sale Today

    The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents rousing, down-home feel-good blues musician Elvin Bishop and his Big Fun Trio live at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Sunday, November 19, 2017. Tickets for Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio go on sale this Friday, August 25 at 10 a.m.

    “Fabulous good-time romps…The pleasure is infectious.” –Blues & Rhythm

    A lot has happened since guitar legend Elvin Bishop released his last album, 2014’s Grammy-nominated Can’t Even Do Wrong Right. He was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and soon after into the Blues Hall Of Fame. He won the Living Blues Award for Best Blues Album Of 2014 and three 2014 Blues Music Awards: Album of the Year, Song of the Year (for the title track) and The Elvin Bishop Band took the award for Band of the Year.

    Now, Elvin—along with his friends, guitarist/pianist Bob Welsh and percussionist/vocalist Willy Jordan—launches The Big Fun Trio. Preparing for one of the first live gigs with his new trio, Bishop told The San Jose Mercury News, “Every time I pick up the guitar, something new comes out of it. I guess you’d call me a late bloomer. When you get to be my age, you’re not expecting to be progressing or coming up ...   [Read More]

    Northern St Johns County Welcomes Beachwalk

    A new community in Northern St. Johns County called Beachwalk will have residents living there before the year ends. Beachwalk is planned to be an upscale neighborhood anchored by what is essentially a 14-acre swimming pool. Plenty of work has already been done, and developer John Kinsey and others associated with the development were in town Thursday for the official groundbreaking ceremony. The enormous Crystal Lagoon has been dug out and is taking shape. Water should fill the Lagoon as soon as July of this year with residents living around it by fall.

    The project being done by Art Falcone’s Encore Capital Management and Kinsey’s Twin Creeks Development, brings a man made lagoon into the project and makes it part of the unique character of the community. The architecture, landscaping and amenities will be different from any other community in the area. It will offer a beach vibe with palm trees rather than live oaks and sandy beaches around the lagoon.

    Kinsey stated that it is a departure from what you see everywhere you go. Working on the whole idea of Beachwalk two years ago, Art and Kinsey came to the conclusion pretty quickly that this area didn’t need more of what was being built and sold in every other community. There i...   [Read More]

    Muschamp Hires Roper as Gators' New Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. Via Gator Zone - Kurt Roper was one of five finalists this season for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation's top assistant coach.

    Gators coach Will Muschamp and Florida fans would like nothing more than for Roper to repeat as a finalist in 2014.

    Muschamp made it official Thursday morning, announcing he has hired Roper as the Gators' new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

    "I'm excited to have Coach Roper join our staff," Muschamp said. "He has a diverse, up-tempo background on offense and does a good job of adapting to what the players do best. The most important thing though is he has always remained balanced.

    "He has had success calling plays in the SEC and has tutored three NFL quarterbacks. He has had players produce at every offensive position and he is one of the most well-respected coaches in the country."

    Roper has spent the last six years as offensive coordinator at Duke under Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe, a longtime mentor. Roper has worked with Cutcliffe every season but one since 1996 when he joined Tennessee's staff as a graduate assistant and Cutcliffe was the Vols' offensive coordinator.

    ESPN Acquires Rights to Arena Football Starting in 2014

    CHICAGO – ESPN and the Arena Football League (AFL) have agreed to a multi-year agreement beginning in 2014. The new deal grants ESPN rights to more than 10 regular season and postseason games on its television networks per year, including ArenaBowl and one conference championship game, as well as 75 or more games annually on ESPN3, ESPN’s live multi-screen sports network. ESPN’s video player will also be available on the AFL website,

    The relationship between the AFL and ESPN began more than two decades ago when ESPN televised the very first ArenaBowl live in 1987. Since then, ESPN televised a combination of AFL regular season and playoff games for five years (1995-99), AFL playoff games from 2000-02 and both regular season and playoff games from 2007-08.

    Additionally, ABC presented the ArenaBowl for five years from 1998-2002. “ESPN has a long history of working with the Arena Football League and this new agreement is a great opportunity to showcase the AFL as part of our year-round commitment to football,” said Matthew Volk, ESPN director, programming and acquisitions.

    "The AFL's return to ESPN is the latest example of the strides our sport has made in recent years,&qu...   [Read More]

More than 40 former Jaguars players are expected to be on hand, to be introduced on the field before the game and to help honor former quarterback Mark Brunell at halftime when he is inducted into the Pride of the Jaguars.

    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. - THE PLAYERS volunteer leadership – the Red Coats –once again hit the road for what has become a Giving Back Month tradition: the Red Coat Ride Out.  This year, the Red Coats took a tour of the Operation New Hope facility before joining the UNF First Generation Scholars Luncheon; both organizations are recipients of Red Coat grants. The Red Coat Ride Out concluded a month of events that celebrated THE PLAYERS charitable outreach and total charitable donations as a result of the 2013 tournament.  

    Operation New Hope received a $10,000 grant from the Red Coats this year, and a surprise $10,000 donation from THE PLAYERS was revealed during the Red Coats visit.

    Indie Folk Artist Mason Jennings Coming To Ponte Vedra

    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (January 26, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces that indie folk singer- songwriter Mason Jennings will perform on Sunday, March 15, 2015. Tickets for Mason Jennings will go on sale to the public this Friday, January 30 at 10 a.m.

    Before setting to work on his 10th studio album, Minnesota-based musician Mason Jennings was looking for a new approach to writing. At the advice of a friend, the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist holed up in the back room of his wood-nestled cabin studio with just a guitar, electric piano, bookshelf, notebook, tape recorder, and one 90-minute cassette and then wrote all winter long. Emerging with the notebook and tape full of about 30 new songs, Jennings decided to skip his standard approach of self-recording and called on producer Bo Ramsey (Greg Brown, The Pines, Iris DeMent), as well as a wish-list-plucked lineup of guest musicians that includes DeMent and Neil Young drummer Chad Cromwell. The result of those “dream collaborations” and his own hard-won inspiration is the latest album Always Been, Jennings’s most radiant and refined effort of his career. Recorded at Minneapolis studio The Terrarium, Always Been builds on the rugged, acoustic-guitar...   [Read More]

    With 5 GRAMMY Awards, 15 nominations, millions of record sales worldwide, and thousands of sold out performances, rock blues icon Robert Cray is considered one of the greatest guitarists of his generation. Rolling Stone Magazine in their April 2011 issue credits Cray with reinventing the blues with his “distinct razor sharp guitar playing” that “introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues” with the release of his Strong Persuader album in 1986.

    Since then, Cray has gone on to record sixteen Billboard charting studio albums and has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker. Inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011 at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honor. And while he can look back ove...   [Read More]
