Pearce breaking out in SJSU spring practices


After two seasons of action and zero receptions, Redwood graduate and San Jose State junior K.C. Pearce has opened some eyes during the Spartans’ spring practices.

San Jose Mercury News reporter Jimmy Dunkin reports Pearce has made a number of big plays in the scrimmages—including a 20-25 yard back-shoulder touchdown catch and a 65-yard touchdown catch.

Dunkin isn’t the only one to take notice.

“He did a nice job. He had some big plays and that’s nice to see,” SJSU coach Ron Caragher said regarding the Visalia native.

The Spartans lost leading receiver Chandler Jones and 500-yard receiver Kyle Nunn, both to graduation. But the receiving corps brings back Tyler Winston, Jabari carr and Tim Crawley, who Pearce will have to compete with for playing time.

”I’m excited about our up-and-coming group of receivers,” Caragher said. “We know Tyler’s shown some things and Timmy ’s played in big games and Jabari, of course, but I like this other group that’s pushing them and battling and competing for playing time.”

Pearce was a 2011 graduate of Redwood and caught 39 passes for 625 yards and seven touchdowns his senior season.
