The Jaguars Academy, run by NFL team Jacksonville Jaguars, returns to Brunel University next month, with two Super Bowl winners among this year’s coaching staff.

Jaguars Academy coaches Keith McKenzie and Fernando Bryant will join the staffing line-up for this year’s event, alongside a linebackers coach.

The combination, as part of the three-day residential training camp from July 13-15, offers a unique opportunity UK talent to be coached by the NFL’s best.

Spaces are still available for the three-day residential camp costing £250, with full kit, laundry, residency at Brunel and on-site food and beverages included in the price.

Additionally, there is a one-day coaching clinic on July 16 costing £50, with the price including lunch and a Jaguars t-shirt.

“Taking part in the Jaguars Academy is a great opportunity and I can’t wait to meet all the prospective players,” said Bryant.

“The NFL continues to grow in popularity in the U.K. and I’m looking forward to heading to London this summer to check it out first-hand.”
