Arizona Wildcats Football Team Allowed Fans to Take Part in Some Practice Drills (Video)
While this sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, it seems that lots of accommodation was made to ensure that the fans were never in harm’s way.
After all, it’s not like they were returning punts at full speed (though that would have been awesome). Instead, fans were jogging downfield while being half-covered by CBs and kicking VERY low PATs that bounce off the crossbar.
It doesn’t look too awesome in the video, but I bet for the fans this was a pretty cool experience. I hope more schools adopt this during the otherwise meaningless (to fans, anyway) spring practices.
Here’s the video of the event:
If you’re looking for blood, you’ll need to find it elsewhere. This all seems friendly and safe. Maybe Miami would host a more violent one.
