Spider-Man: Homecoming found a lot of fun ways to incorporate the events, milestones, and characters of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe - and one of the most fun cameos came from Chris Evans' Captain America!
Cap appears several times in the film in the form of PSA video series that Peter Parker's high school gym teacher, Coach Wilson (Hannibal Buress), must show. It's a fun little motif that culminates in an even more enjoyable post-credits scene - which you can read about in detail HERE.
In an interview with Homecoming director Jon Watts, Collider learned that the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming Blu-ray release will actually feature even more Captain America PSAs, which weren't included in the theatrical film!
Apparently, Watts had Chris Evans on set for a limited amount of time, and decided to write out and shoot a bunch of the Cap PSAs, which Evans performed. Speaking about that process, Watts said, "I just wrote pages of them ’cause I had Chris Evans for however amount of time, so I just feed him... We put it together like it was the actual DVD that they show at the school, so it just is clicking from one to another to another.”
There will apparently be about 10 of these Captain America PSAs included with the Blu-ray - including a "Play All" function for fans to take them all in.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).

The cast includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, JacobBatalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. It also includes Jon Favreau, Martin Starr, Kenneth Choi, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., JJ Totah, and Hannibal Buress.
