Wait, what? Touchdown Beast Mode? In March? Yup. Touchdown Beast Mode. In March.
NFL Training Camps won’t open for another four months, but running back Marshawn Lynch apparently can’t wait that long to get back on the field. Saturday, Lynch got involved in some game-action at the University of California’s annual Spring Game at Berkeley’s California Memorial Stadium.
Lynch, the 2006 Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year who racked up 3,230 yards and 29 scores on the ground in three seasons with the Golden Bears (2004-06), bore his college No. 10 jersey and sniffed out the end zone to the delight of the Cal fans in attendance after a run to the outside in which he was untouched by the defense.
“I actually kind of felt pretty good out there knowing that this is home,” the amicable Lynch said on the sideline after his touchdown run. “It felt pretty good, man.”
