CORTLAND, NY-- For the first time in the franchise's history the Jets held pre-season training camp at SUNY Cortland in 2009. Many in the community are excited they helped get the team off to a good start.
During the camp, some players and head coach Rex Ryan made stops at Doug's Fish Fry for a bite to eat, and the restaurant has the documentation to prove it. "They signed the wall, stood there to get their picture taken signed autographs and it was really, the players that did come in were really nice, really cool,” said Marie Netti, who works at Doug’s.
They are now just one win away from the Super Bowl, a journey that started in Cortland about six months ago. "I was thinking about that the other day, I think Cortland is a good luck charm, the first year they start practicing here and then they're going to the championship, we'll cross our fingers,” said Cali Young, who also works at the restaurant.
SUNY Cortland expects to talk with the Jets after the season about returning to campus for next season's training camp, but that may not be until almost mid February if the team does make the Super Bowl.
