Jerry Rice can still blaze down a football field at age 54


Not a bad guy to learn from.

Former 49ers wide receiver and NFL legend Jerry Rice was on hand at Nike Football’s “The Opening” camp at Nike HQ in Portland, Oregon, which hosts some of the top high school football prospects across the country.

Rice did more than offer his input from the sidelines. The NFL’s all-time leader in receiving yards, receptions and touchdowns laced up the cleats, threw on some gloves and took part in drills with the kids.

Quarterbacks such as TCU commit Justin Rogers got to live a childhood dream and connect with Rice on passes down the field. Wide receivers were able to observe Rice still be able to blaze down the field and make sharp cuts. Everyone else in attendance was able to soak in the presence and advice from the unquestioned greatest receiver in NFL history.

Even at the age of 54, Rice looked like he could still strike some fear into some corner-backs across the league today.
