Luke Sims is the current editor/leader writer for Black&Teal and chimes in from St. Paul, Minnesota. Luke grew tired of watching the Vikings fail miserably to the Packers with their pass-first offense. While never having visited Jacksonville, the tough defense and smash mouth offense appealed to his desire for real football. Since his discovery of the proud Florida franchise in 2003, Luke has been enamored with the the Jaguars. Some may say love is in the air, and as the Jaguars progress, the affair only grows.
Andrew Hofheimer is a staff writer for BlackandTeal.com and is a Jacksonville native, living there until he attended college in 2005. He graduated from Washington & Lee University with a degree in Business Administration and currently resides in Atlanta, GA. Despite living and breathing baseball when Jacksonville was first awarded a professional franchise, he was a Jaguars fan from Day 1 and fell deeper in love with every season, enjoying going to games with his family and friends. He considers himself an ever-learning student of the game and is hugely passionate about the Jaguars, the sport of football, and the city of Jacksonville.
- Zoltan Paksa writes from Budapest, Hungary and first became a fan of the franchise in the late 90′s when he heard of a peculiar NFL team called the “Jacksonville Jaguars”. With the help of the internet, he immersed himself in Jaguars football in 2004 and 2005 and slowly began to fall in love with them. Since then, he has avidly pursued every article, picture, video, and sound byte he could get on the Jaguars and is by all means a well-respected maven of Jaguars football.
He has contributed for numerous Jaguars-related sites in addition to Black&Teal, including BigCatCountry. He can be found writing for Bow.hu (formally, NFL.hu and bigger than ever!), as well as other NFL outlets, under the moniker “iktriad”.

Zain Gowani was born in a little town called Mercy, New Jersey. This proved ironic as he showed none of it to opposing players on the football field, basketball court, and track growing up in Orlando, FL. A highly touted prospect recruited by a number of flag football teams across the country, his amateur sports career was derailed by earth-shattering injuries at the age of 22, and he now lives in Nashville, TN where he is a medical student by day and a medical student by night. In his free time, he follows his hometown Orlando Magic, the Florida Gators, Novak Djokavic, and of course, the Jacksonville Jaguars.
