Former Seahawk Marshawn Lynch is accompanying the Cal football team -- where he played from 2004-06 -- as it plays Hawaii in Australia this week.
Marshawn Lynch may have retired.
But when it comes to his alma mater — Cal — he’s still willing to carry the ball a time or two.
Lynch is accompanying Cal for its season-opening game against Hawaii in Sydney, and suited up and got a couple of carries as a scout team running back in practice Tuesday.
Cal coach Sonny Dykes told ESPN: “He’s been really great with our players and has interacted with their families. He loves young people and trying to have an impact on them. He does a lot of things that people don’t know about behind the scenes. We’re lucky to have him around.”
