JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Former K Josh Scobee has been named No. 21 on the Jaguars All-25, the club announced today. Jaguars All-25 presented by Sharpie is a collection of the top 25 non-active players in franchise history, as voted on by members of the local media. The Jaguars’ silver celebration kicked off in mid-March with the start of the new league year and the unveiling of the team’s 25th season commemorative logo designed to embody the spirit of DUUUVAL.
“I want to thank everybody who voted for me for the All-25 team,” Scobee said. “I loved every minute of being a Jaguar. I love Jacksonville and I love this organization.”
Scobee, 6-1, 200, was originally drafted by Jacksonville in the fifth round (137th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft and remains the team’s all-time leading scorer (1,022 career points). He appeared in 168 games for the organization, the third-most in franchise history, from 2004-14. Scobee’s 11 seasons with the Jaguars are tied for the second-most in club annals, trailing only Brad Meester’s 14 seasons (2000-13). Scobee was an eight-time winner of the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award, the most by a player of any weekly AFC award in franchise history.
Scobee is the only player in Jaguars history to make a field goal in 13 or more consecutive games, a feat that he achieved twice in his career. Scobee and former K Mike Hollis are the only kickers in franchise history to make 20 consecutive FGs, a streak Scobee accomplished from Nov. 27, 2011 through Nov. 4, 2012. Scobee’s 59-yard game-winning FG on Oct. 3, 2010 vs. Indianapolis remains the longest made FG in franchise history.
Scobee made 235 of 291 career FG attempts (80.8%) with the Jaguars and his 235 career made FGs are the most in franchise history. Scobee’s 317 extra points are also the most in franchise history, while his 98.4 PAT pct. (317 of 322) ranks third in franchise history for kickers with a minimum of 25 PATs. Scobee registered 100-plus points in three of his 11 seasons with the franchise.
“He was Mr. Clutch,” said Mark Long, writer for the Associated Press and a Jaguars All-25 voter. “You could always count on him when you’re talking about that 50-yarder to win the game. He was going to make it. That’s the guy you wanted on the field in a tight game at the end. You just have to give him a chance.”
Scobee officially retired as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars on April 13, 2017 and is active within the Jaguars Legends Community.
Scobee and his wife, Melissa, have two sons, Jacob and David.
