A year ago this week at San Jose State, around 20 or so 49ers players gathered at the school’s football field for some voluntary workouts. Led by quarterback Alex Smith, the event was called Camp Alex. The players would meet again two weeks later for another week-long workout.
Camp Alex ended up being the beginning of the transformation of the San Francisco 49ers.
I didn’t attend the first week but I was there for the second week of practices. It was nice returning to my alma mater and being part of something so unique.
