Chipper Jones, Dee Brown, Leroy Butler, Bob Hayes, Edgar Bennett, Jabar Gaffney, Sam Cowart, Tim Tebow…….  These are just a few of a long line of local NBA, NFL, Professional Baseball players and Olympians.

I actually never even thought about the NHL, but a few weeks ago 19 year old Brian Ferlin became the first player from Jacksonville drafted into the NHL.

The great thing is he was drafted by the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins in the 4th round. 

Can you imagine people screaming DUVALLLLLLLLLLLLLL at a hockey game?
