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. Britton, a second-round draft pick out of the University of Arizona, is in camp after signing a four-year contract earlier this month with Jacksonville.
