UCLA Cancels Football Practice
Sept. 11, 2001
'Due to today's tragedy, we have decided to cancel football practice this afternoon,' said head coach Bob Toledo.
'I met with the team at 2:15 p.m. and it was a very emotional meeting. The team was sensitive to the feelings of the people who have suffered a great loss. Our prayers go out to the victims, the survivors and their families.
'After listening to comments from several members of the team, I decided that regardless of whether or not we play the game on Saturday, today should be a day for us to reflect on things other than football and I cancelled meetings and practice.'
Football practice will resume tomorrow as scheduled.
