JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville University football continues its celebrity guest analyst program for Dolphin home games this Saturday when Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard joins Cole Pepper in the booth for the Dolphins' Homecoming matchup against Austin Peay at 12:30 p.m. at D.B.

Garrard was drafted by the Jaguars in the fourth round of the 2002 draft out of East Carolina.
