Anthony Johnson played football from high school through an 11-year NFL career. Today, he’s the Jacksonville Jaguars’ chaplain, and possibly the most low-key former NFL player you’ll ever meet.

He’s an Indiana native who went to Notre Dame on a scholarship. He had, at that time, a single focus to his life: “Playing football, my passion since I was young,”

He says, “I played through high school and was good enough to get a football scholarship to Notre Dame. I graduated in 1990 and was drafted in the second round by the Indianapolis Colts.”

New pool and party cabanas, field seats and other premium seating options at EverBank Field are all part of the Jacksonville Jaguars' strategy to bring in more revenue without raising ticket prices across the board.

Team President Mark Lamping said the Jaguars have some of the lowest ticket prices in the NFL.

"We have to find other ways to increase our average ticket price, and do it in a way that it doesn't disrupt or give any of our fans a disincentive to come to Jaguars games," he said.
