BERKELEY – The Cal football team conducted a pair of workouts closed to the public in its second two-a-day practice of 2014 training camp Wednesday on Kabam Field at California Memorial Stadium. After concluding their 11th and 12th workouts of training camp the Golden Bears were treated to a speech from football legend Herm Edwards during an evening team meeting.
“Herm has had a great football career both as a player and a coach,” head coach Sonny Dykes said. “He’s a dynamic speaker and I thought he did a great job sharing some really important messages for our team. We were lucky to have. He played college football at Cal and really cares about this University and our program. We are really thankful to him for taking time out of his busy schedule to come talk to our players. His message was very well received and relevant.”
Herm Edwards came and gave us some words of wisdom today! An unforgettable moment with the Cal football family.🏈🏈🏈 pic.twitter.com/pGnNW1by99— Noah Westerfield (@WesterfieldNoah) August 14, 2014
