Timberline grad: NFL running back in town today, Saturday to teach kids football

The OlympianJuly 6, 2012 

Timberline High School graduate and Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart will be in Lacey today and Saturday for his third annual football camp at South Sound Stadium.

The Jonathan Stewart ProCamp is free for boys and girls ages 7-14 and runs from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. both days. Registration is closed.

A new addition this year is a free camp for high school players (ages 15-18), which takes place at the same time and location as the youth camp.

The camp works with South Sound YMCA to provide camp scholarships to disadvantaged youths.

The camp features Stewart, other NFL players and some of South Sound’s high school coaches.

Stewart, a 5-foot-10, 230-pound running back, became Washington’s all-time leading prep rusher with 7,775 yards during a Timberline career that ended in 2004. He was drafted by the Panthers No. 13 overall in 2008 after three seasons at the University of Oregon.

In four seasons in the NFL – all with Carolina – Stewart has rushed for 3,500 yards and scored 26 touchdowns. He is entering the final year of his contract.
