While Chuck Jacobs plays for the San Francisco 49ers, he hasn’t forgotten that he used to play for the Kennedy Eagles.
The undrafted free agent who has been turning heads in the NFL is slated to return to his high school alma mater June 12 for a youth football camp.
The first annual Chuck Jacobs Football Camp is a partnership between Kennedy High and BAA Management, which represents Jacobs. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for kids between the ages of 10 and 18. Those interested can register here.
“Chucks Jacobs is a proud alumni of Kennedy High and desires to give back to the community he grew up in,” said David Perry, athletic director at Kennedy High.
Jacobs recently got props from Niners Nation, which touted the young wide receiver’s NFL potential in a May 1 article titled, “Who will come out of nowhere for the San Francisco 49ers in 2014?”
The article by David Fucillo states:
On the offensive side of the ball, a guy I’ll be keeping an eye on in training camp is Chuck Jacobs. The 49ers signed Jacobs as an undrafted free agent, and he ended up spending the season on the practice squad. Of course, prior to that, he put together an impressive body of work in the preseason. It was all in garbage time, but for a UDFA, that’s the first step forward. The 49ers are likely going to add a wide receiver or two in this draft, and of course Quinton Patton will get his share of opportunities. But Jacobs is a guy who could sneak his way up the depth chart. Given his performance last preseason, I have to think he gets bumped up to slightly more pertinent playing time in 2014.
