SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Head coach Sonny Dykes, senior offensive lineman Chris Adcock and junior defensive end Brennan Scarlett will represent Cal on Wednesday at the 2014 Bay Area College Football Media Day sponsored by the San Francisco Bowl Game Association. The event begins at 10:30 a.m. in advance of the Bay Area College Football Kickoff Luncheon.
The event is being held for the first time at Levi’s® Stadium, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers which in addition to the NFL team’s 2014 home campaign will also be the site for this season’s Cal-Oregon contest (Oct. 24), Pac-12 Championship Game (Dec. 5) and San Francisco Bowl (Dec. 30).
Adcock has the inside track to become Cal’s starting center in 2014 after making starts in the first four games of 2013 at the position before suffering a season-ending injury in practice prior to the fifth game of the campaign. Adcock has played in 19 career games with 15 starts, including 11 at right guard in 2012. Adcock is a two-time Pac-12 All-Academic selection (2012, ’13) who is slated to be Cal’s nominee this season for the William V. Campbell Trophy awarded annually to the nation’s college football senior with the best combination of academic success, football performance and community leadership.
Scarlett is listed as a starter at defensive end in 2014 after returning to action during Cal’s 2014 spring practices for the first time since missing both the 2013 season and preceding spring workouts due to injury. Scarlett showed flashes of greatness as a 2012 sophomore when he registered 40 tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss (-23 yards) and 2.5 sacks (-17 yards). He was also an honorable mention Pac-12 All-Academic choice during his sophomore campaign.
Adcock and Scarlett are both students in Cal’s prestigious Haas School of Business with Adcock a double major in business administration and interdisciplinary studies.
