Anyway.... so about 300 high-energy boys (aka "young men") from as far north as Sacramento and as far south as Fresno (plus Hunter's Point, the East Bay, East Palo Alto and San Jose) will be participating. Each and every one of these boys (age 7-13) has a parent in prison or is exposed to other serious risk factors. They have a number of Ex-Stanford ballers signed up to be volunteer coaches….and a few other former Bay Area stars from programs like USC, Fresno State, and Cal). Also confirmed as participants are three-time ProBowler and four-time Super Bowl champ Keena Turner (who is now Vice President of Football Affairs for the 49ers) and two-time Pro Bowl-er and four-time Super Bowl Champ Eric Wright as "Featured Coaches".
