DJ DID IT!

Jaguars wide receiver DJ Chark knows how important it is to know how to be safe around water. In summer 2018, he finally overcame his fear of the water and learned how to swim at the Winston Family YMCA. DJ shared his story in The Florida Times-Union and with WJXT/News4Jax anchor Joy Purdy:

DJ surprised some of the Y’s Tiger Academy scholars by jumping into the pool during their Safety Around Water lessons at the Winston Family YMCA.
