‘Super’ Donald Payne

Donald Payne, wearing his Jacksonville Jaguars uniform, readies for a play on the football field.

Donald Payne is on a collision course with the Super Bowl.

Former Stetson All-American Donald Payne ’16, a three-time selection, is making a significant impact with the Jacksonville Jaguars, as the team attempts to advance through the NFL Playoffs and into the Super Bowl.

Payne, a linebacker, has gone from being undrafted last spring to carving out a niche on special teams for the Jaguars. He leads the team with 13 total tackles on punts and kickoffs.

This Sunday afternoon, Jan. 14 (CBS-TV), Payne and Jaguars face the Pittsburgh Steelers, with the winner moving on the AFC Championship – one win away from Super Bowl LII.
