Jaguars Game Has Special Meaning for Russ-Doe's Sandwich Shop Owners

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- At Russ-Doe's Sandwich shop, between the hot sandwiches and cold salads, there is room for football, lots of football.

On the wall are a football jersey and a picture of a player wearing the jersey - No. 11.  "Oh yeah, that's his number, that was his number in college," said Russell Smith Jr.

Smith's son Rusty Smith is a first-year quarterback for the Tennessee Titans; 11 is his number. 

"He's a good kid. He's worked hard, I ran for a lot of passes in the front yard and the backyard," said his father.

It took hard work and strong discipline, he said, like working around the family's Eastside sandwich shop.

"When he was 7... I started him parking cars out there, picking up the trash," he said. "We just talking about that this morning, he has fond memories."
