JU to play host to NFL Pro Day
A contingent of former Jacksonville University football players will put their skills on display Monday when the school plays host to an NFL Pro Day at D.B. Milne Field.

Quarterback Josh McGregor, who holds virtually all the school’s passing records, several Pioneer Football League records and finished his career fifth in all-time touchdown passes nationally, will lead the JU contingent for the workouts which begin about 10 a.m.

Scouts from the Jaguars, New York Giants and the Canadian Football League are among those expected to attend.

Wide receiver Josh Philpart, the JU all-time leading receiver, also is scheduled to attend as is Tampa’s Larry Thompson, who ended his career as the fifth leading receiver in school history.

Former running backs J.J. Laster and Rudell Small are on the workout roster as is tight end/long snapper Eric Baker, of Milton, Fla.

The JU defense also will have representation as Jacksonville defensive back Lacy McDougald, one of the most prolific interception players in school history, and Miami’s Darren Johnson are scheduled to attend.
