Geocache Description:


About This Cache: 

Jacksonville Jaguars

(NFL: 1995 - Present)

Five Facts about the Jacksonville Jaguars:

·         The Jaguars made it to the AFC Championship Game in just their second year in the league.

·         In 1999, just the Jaguars fourth season in the league, they compiled a 14-2 record which was the best in the NFL that year.

·         Due to the original Jaguars logo looking too much like the logo for the Jaguar automobile, an agreement was worked out where Jaguar would be the official automobile of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

·         The first player enshrined in the Jaguars “Pride of the Jaguars” was Offensive Lineman Tony Boselli, who also happens to be the first player ever drafted by Jacksonville.

·         Although the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars came into the league in the same year, Carolina is officially the 29th NFL team and Jacksonville is the 30th.

Series Finale:

Please make sure you take time to read your playbook and keep up with the questions and answers in preparation for the FINAL exam. Please DO NOT POST any of the answers or questions in your logs.

The FINAL playbook will contain a variety of questions from the above caches in order to obtain the "Road to the Super Bowl" coordinates (HINT: Answers to FINAL playbook will come from a number of caches you found during the season, so I would hate for you to try to skip one or two of the caches and miss a question).
