Who says that the Jacksonville Jaguars don't have a heart?

Running back Montell Owens has formed a jazz group with 12 area high school students interested in music. The group, which practiced for months, performed Saturday night at the Jacksonville Jazz Festival. The performance at the Snyder Memorial Church showcased the talented group known as the "St. John's River City High School Jazz All-Stars" and featured Owens playing trumpet. An attendee of the concert called Owens and the group "mesmerizing and magical."

Outside of the game, the Jaguars team is known for their charity work. From emphasizing healthy eating habits to supporting musical interests and other causes, the Jaguar players should be commended for giving back. Though football fans may disagree, sometimes it's more then just the game that we remember.
