As a rookie, Bourne attended the 49ers’ annual Mentorship Academy, which provides players with the opportunity to pass on their life lessons to local high school football players, who then turn it around and share that advice with youth football players in their respective area. The players discussed a variety of subjects, including stress management, healthy eating, exhibiting leadership and maintaining healthy relationships.
Bourne’s heritage consists of him being half Samoan and half African-American. He has a number of tattoos that begin on his left shoulder and stretches all the way down near his wrist. In 2013 after his senior season at Milwaukie Arts (Portland, OR) Academy, Bourne was honored when he was chosen to play in the Polynesian All-American Bowl in La Mirada, CA. The love for his heritage was instilled by him from his mom, Luisa, who he calls ‘His reason why.’
