Current Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver and former Missouri standout Jeremy Maclin will be back in Columbia this weekend to host the "Jeremy Maclin Charity Weekend."
Maclin and other former Missouri players will begin the weekend by visiting a series of non-profit organizations on Friday afternoon. On Saturday morning, a football clinic for Columbia's youth will be held on Missouri's football practice fields.
The main attraction will take place on Saturday night, when Maclin and his former teammates compete in the "Mizzou Legends Charity Softball Game" at 6 p.m. at Taylor Stadium. The event will begin with a home run derby, followed by the game.
Maclin, Sean Weatherspoon, Brad Smith, Aldon Smith, William Moore, Danario Alexander, Ziggy Hood and Colin Brown are all set to participate in the game.
Proceeds from the weekend will be directed to the Jeremy Maclin Foundation, which assists youth and families forced into alternative living situations, as well as the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia and the Coyote Hill Christian Children's Home.
