In a very short time, Eben Britton has made himself a starter in the NFL. In his rookie season in 2009, Britton — a Burroughs High graduate — was named the starting right tackle prior to the final preseason game. He started in 15 of the team's 16 games and recovered a fumble in a game against the New England Patriots.

His starts were the third-most by a rookie offensive tackle in franchise history.

BURBANK — Hot, tired, uncomfortable. Working out in full pads under the hot Florida sun in mid-August is not exactly a fun place to be. But for Burroughs High graduate Eben Britton, it is exactly where he wants to be. Britton, a 6-foot-6, 310-pound offensive lineman, is entrenched in preseason training camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is not only learning the ropes in anticipation of his rookie NFL season, but he is fighting for a starting spot.
