This past Saturday, Brandon Jacobs assisted in running a football clinic in Graham, North Carolina. The football clinic was for boys in the third through eighth grades and was focused on fundamentals. Following the clinic, Jacobs also guest spoke at the Christian Adventurers’ Spring Banquet and Auction which was used to raise money for the organization.
Brandon Jacobs is a native of Houma, Louisiana who ran for over 3,000 yards and 38 touchdowns in his senior season of high school. After a college career that included playing for both the University of Auburn and Southern Illinois University, Jacobs was chosen in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. In Jacobs rookie season he rushed for over 400 yards and nine touchdowns and followed that season up by capturing the starting running back position after Tiki Barber retired. In that 2007 season the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl behind Jacobs bruising running style and their great defensive line. After six more seasons that included another Super Bowl run with the Giants and a brief stint with the San Francisco 49ers, Jacobs decided to retire after resigning with the Giants for one more season. Since his retirement Jacobs has been present on ABC’s Shark Tank and currently resides in Wayne, New Jersey.
This past Saturday, Brandon Jacobs guest spoke at the Christian Adventurers’ Spring Banquet and Auction after assisting with the football clinic held before. The event gave kids the chance to learn fundamentals from a former NFL running back and as expected the turnout was great.
