June 30, 2013 

Timberline High School graduate and current Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart will be in Lacey Tuesday and Wednesday (July 2-3) to host his fourth annual Jonathan Stewart ProCamp at South Sound Stadium. The free camp is for boys and girls ages 7-18 and runs from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. both days. The camp works with South Sound YMCA to provide camp scholarships to disadvantaged youth.

The camp features Stewart, other NFL players and some of the area’s high school head coaches. Stewart, a 5-foot-10, 230-pound running back, became Washington’s all-time leading rusher with 7,775 yards his senior season at Timberline in 2004. He was drafted by the Panthers at No. 13 overall out of Oregon in 2008. In five NFL seasons -- all with Carolina -- Stewart has rushed for 3,836 yards and scored 27 touchdowns. He missed seven games in 2012 with an ankle injury.
