Marshawn Lynch’s Practice With HS Players At Oak Tech Violated State Rules, Officials Say

Marshawn Lynch fulfilled the dreams of many young football players at his former high school after giving them the chance to play with a professional athlete.

Lynch suited up in full pads and joined Oakland Tech’s team practice on Wednesday (Oct. 25). The 31-year-old was seen running over and being tackled by teens, which, according to the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), is a violation of state rules and raises serious safety concerns.

“Only 9th through 12th-grade students may practice with or compete on a high school team,” officials told TMZ Sports.

“[Marshawn’s] participation in the practice did not comply with Oakland Athletic League’s rules and regulations. Site administration did not receive prior notice that Lynch would be attending an after-school practice.”

The League’s Commissioner Alphonso Powell added, “We take these rules very seriously as the safety and well-being of our student-athletes is our foremost concern.”

The school could face punishment for the incident, but no discipline has been handed out so far.

Just keep workin it will happen no matter what!!!!Yes lawd!!!!
