Marshawn Lynch scores TD at California spring game
The former Cal Bears running back gives the fans a treat during the spring game.
The first spring game of the Sonny Dykes era at California this past Saturday featured a blast from the past as former Cal Bear and current Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch gave fans a treat by suiting up for one play -- a 22-yard touchdown run on third down.
Of course, the play wasn't real, as told by the San Jose Mercury News:
But as it turned out, the ball carrier wasn't supposed to be touched. He was a ringer -- former Cal star Marshawn Lynch -- who entered the game on a third-down play as a surprise to the approximately 5,000 fans who showed up to get a sneak preview of the Sonny Dykes spread offense.
"We told the guys if anybody tackled him, it was going to be a $25 million fine," Dykes said of Lynch's play. "I didn't want to be getting a call from Pete (Carroll, Lynch's coach with the Seattle Seahawks)."
Here's the highlight from Memorial Stadium:
Maybe Dykes can get Aaron Rodgers to suit up this fall, too.
