Rowell: Lifelong Cal Fan's Battle for Playing Time

March 14, 2019

Robby Rowell was born to play football at Cal.

Whether he ever gets the chance to do it is another story. For the second year in a row, he is last man up on the quarterback rotation.

He certainly knows the drill, he has been a follower of Cal football literally longer than he can remember. He does know exactly when he attended his first game, although he is understandably a little hazy on the details.

“It was against USC in 1999,” he said. “I was three months old.”

He eventually learned that the Bears pulled off a rare victory over the Trojans that day.
