California players have dedicated the upcoming season to defensive lineman Ted Agu, who died during a workout in February.
Agu, who suffered from a heart condition, came to California as a walk-on, but earned a scholarship.
“I learned a lot about perseverance and dedication from watching him every day,” cornerback Stefan McClure said. “He showed up and worked hard. He never complained He was thankful for the opportunity. He would do anything for the team.”
