Jaguars and Academy Sports & Outdoors Gift Two Season Ticket Members with “Home-Gating” Gear

TIAA Bank Field is welcoming fans all season long, but the Jaguars Foundation and Academy Sports & Outdoors know that not everyone can be there.  With COVID-19 in mind, the organizations partnered to gift two season ticket members a complete “home-gaiting” package to help recreate that game day experience at their own homes.  

Richard Wiles, a Jaguars season ticket member for the last 22 seasons, suffered a heart attack recently and because of his health is electing to play it safe and limit his exposure as much as possible.  That means no Jaguars games in person this year.  

“It’s been very strange, but the NFL and the Jaguars have handled it pretty doggone good,” said Wiles. “Yes, it’s definitely disappointing since I’m a long-time season ticket member but because of my medical situation, I couldn’t attend anyway. But my family is loving it and I’m going to find a way

Women’s Sports Foundation gala to stream on Yahoo Sports

The biggest night in women’s sports is almost here, and for the first time ever it’s available for everyone to see.

The Women’s Sports Foundation’s Annual Salute to Women in Sports is happening on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 8 p.m. ET, and while COVID-19 has forced the gala online, it will now be broadcast live and free on Yahoo Sports.

There could not be a better time to salute women in sports. Between COVID-19 and the renewed push for equality following the numerous Black Lives Matter protests around the country, 2020 has been a tumultuous year, but women athletes have been leading the way. That’s why the theme of this year’s gala is “Speak with Sport,” celebrating the women athletes and leaders who have been using their platform to demand equality and justice for all — both inside and outside of sports.

The Women’s Sports Foundation will be giving out

Peru State’s new coach got his first win in remarkable fashion | Local sports



Peru State

Peru State running back Ki’Jana Owens had a career-high 173 rushing yards against Baker last week, including 142 in the second half.




Peru State looked like a different team during the second half of last Saturday’s game, turning a 10-3 halftime deficit into a 30-17 win over previously unbeaten Central Methodist.

Coach Casey Creehan offered a simple explanation for the turnaround.

“Our execution wasn’t where it needed to be” in the first 1½ games, said Creehan, whose team lost its opener 41-2 before last weekend’s comeback. “In the second half, we just executed better.”

It’s understandable that it took the Bobcats time to get on the same page.

Creehan, who coached Lyon College in Arkansas last season, took over at Peru at the beginning of March — just ahead of COVID-19 shutting down campuses for the rest of the spring.

Peru’s first two scheduled games were postponed
