"American" Football 101

6/6/2016; 2 minutes

Hundreds of Berkeley's international students showed up at Memorial Stadium Saturday for a training camp especially designed for them: "American Football 101." The one-hour Student Orientation event, hosted by the Berkeley International Office and Cal Athletics, offered the students instruction and practice in football drills led by Golden Bear players. The one-hour training is intended as a fun way to familiarize students with a sport that most of them have had little or no exposure to, growing up in foreign countries. Saturday's practice drills included punting, passing, receiving, blocking, sprinting, goal-kicking, and a lot of positive reinforcement from the player "coaches."
