For the second year in a row, the Jaguars have won the award which recognizes fair play and sporting behavior. The silver award is given to teams that accumulate no red ejection cards and a maximum of five yellow caution cards throughout the season.

Jaguars head coach Ryan Deppa accepted the award recently at the annual NSCAA convention in Philadelphia.
