Over 125 Bruin players of the past visited UCLA football practice on Thursday at the invitation of head coach Rick Neuheisel.
At the conclusion of the two-hour practice, the alumni players were invited into the huddle as Terry Donahue, head coach from 1976-95, addressed the current team members. The current players then had a chance to visit with their counterparts from the past.
Among the alumni in attendance were Donahue, Manu Tuiasosopo, Kris Farris, Andy Meyers, John Sciarra, Jojo Townsell, Cormac Carney, Paul Bergmann, Peter Boermeester, Marcedes Lewis, Mike Seidman, Skip Hicks, Derek Ayers, Ed Kezirian, Rob Kezirian, Bruce Walton, Danny Farmer, Paco Craig, James Washington, Frank Stephens, Matt Stevens, Wayne Cook, Bryan Adams, Cory Paus, offensive coordinator Homer Smith and Justin Hickman, to name a few. Also in attendance were several members of the 2007 team, including Brandon Breazell, Dennis Keyes and Chris Horton.
Portions of today's practice will be featured on next Wednesday night's Lexus Gauntlet UCLA Spring Football Show on FSN Prime Ticket.
Following the practice, the players had a dinner with the current coaching staff. Neuheisel introduced each member of the staff. He then asked the alumni players to stand, beginning with those who played for Red Sanders, all the way through those who played for Karl Dorrell.
