Cal Begins Second Week of Spring Drills

March 19, 2007

Berkeley - The California football team began its second week of Spring Football drills Monday afternoon at Memorial Stadium, practicing for 26 periods in full pads. Just like last week, the team focused primarily on individual drills like 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 sessions, mixed with a two-minute drill, and special teams exercises.

'There are a lot of good things going on,' said head coach Jeff Tedford. 'We're getting a chance to see some of the young guys and what they are doing and how they are progressing. Some of the young corners are doing well. So I think we are getting a lot out of it.'

Redshirt freshman, Charles Amadi (Fresno) was certainly pleased with the first week of drills and was happy to be back on the field. 'The first week of practice was nice,' said Amadi. 'It feels good to be on the field instead of watching. It's good to be back out here with the team. Physically I want to work on my reaction time, mentally I don't want to freeze up, because things go way faster than high school, and you have way more to think about, so I just want to remain cool and learn the plays.'

The next practice is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, another full pads session.

As a reminder, all California football practices are CLOSED to the public.

The Bears open the 2007 season on Sept. 1, hosting Tennessee at Memorial Stadium. Season tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday and are available by visiting or by calling 1-800-GO-BEARS.
