When CLLAS co-director Gerardo Sandoval and CLLAS assistant director Eli Meyer were both invited to serve as guest coaches for the UO – Cal football game on November 7, they didn’t know about each others invitations until a few days before the game! With Oregon vanquishing Cal in a lopsided score of 44-28, it made for an especially memorable day. Gerardo Sandoval, second from the right, and Eli Meyer, second from the left, are shown here with the UO Athletics Academic Staff. Go Ducks! Go Gerardo and Eli!
