  • ​Witherspoon, got his musical talents playing the drums and singing from his grandfather, Jimmy Witherspoon (pictured right), who was a renowned blues/jazz musician and singer whose hits, including “Ain’t Nobody’s Business” which reached number one on the U.S. R&B charts in 1949, came in the late 1940’s.
  • Not only was Witherspoon’s grandfather extremely talented, his father also had skills of his own. Lucky Witherspoon was a running back at the University of Nevada and was invited to a tryout with the Dallas Cowboys.
  • A multi-sport athlete growing up, Witherspoon excelled in soccer as a midfielder and as an outfielder and pitcher in baseball. He picked up soccer at the age of five in order to be more like his older sister, Alexis. Witherspoon credits soccer for teaching him footwork and body awareness skills that have translated to the football field.
  • After posing for a photoshoot, Witherspoon and his teammates joined Levi’s in support of breast, colon and pediatric cancer warriors at the Crucial Catch Fashion Show presented by Dignity Health in October of 2018. 49ers players and cancer warriors took to the runway to show off their attire and share their stories of strength and courage with the audience.
