McComb Native, Now NFL Coach, Giving Back To Community

A McComb native who now coaches in the NFL is giving back to his hometown community in a big way.

Craig Aukerman graduated from McComb High School in 1995 and was a standout on the football and basketball teams.

He graduated from the University of Findlay in 1999 and went on to coach football for several college programs and NFL teams.

Aukerman is entering his 12th season coaching in the NFL and is currently the special teams coordinator and assistant head coach for the Tennessee Titans.

He and his wife founded the Aukerman Family Foundation to help support student-athletes in his hometown area.



This weekend, Craig is presenting a free football camp for families at McComb High School as well as a charity golf outing followed by an auction.

The goal is to raise enough money through these events to fund two scholarships; one for a McComb student and one for another Hancock County student.

The events for the weekend are sold out, but you can get more information on the Aukerman Family Foundation by clicking here and the AUKtion items by clicking here.
