FLEMING ISLAND, FL – Jacksonville Athletic Academy (JAA) Moccasins (Mocs) will start their inaugural season on Saturday, Sept. 11 at Clay High School at 3 p.m. against Myrtle Beach Collegiate Post Grad Academy.
JAA, coached by former Clay High football great and NFL veteran Nolan Carroll, is a junior college program that serves as a launching pad for many local college football athletes. JAA is giving an opportunity for athletes that did not sign with a major university a chance to further develop their skills. JAA is also providing a second chance at college and football for some athletes that were removed from a major university program due to injuries or other life mishaps.
Having a junior college football program closer to home is a relief for many families that are unable to afford the high cost for out of state tuition and housing expenses. Players attend Florida State College at Jacksonville and St. Johns River State College.
The Mocs will play four home games during the 2021 season. To stay updated on future Mocs games visit https://www.jacksonvilleathleticacademy.org/schedule.
