    Pretty cool experience for those kids. Go Bulldogs!

    "The Bulldogs will take on an all-star team made up of players from the American Football League of China (AFLC) Champion Shanghai Titans, the Iron Brothers and other Beijing-based AFLC teams, and the CAFL indoor league at 1 p.m. local time (12 a.m. US CDT) on Saturday, May 26.

    "Drake football is excited to travel to China and interact with the people of that great country through the sport of American football," said Drake head coach Rick Fox. "This will be a trip that will have lifelong impact on our young men and we hope it will be a benefit to the people of China as well."

    Following game day, the Bulldog travel party of 82 people will take on a unique challenge when they hike the steep and majestic Great Wall segments of Gubeikou-Jinshanling on Monday, May 28. This challenging trek, organized by Global Football and their local coordinator Xian Aihua, will provide a rare opportunity for the team to gain personal knowledge of this world wonder by hiking two major sections. The group will spend the balance of their time in cooperative educational activities hosted by UIBE, as well as touring the spectacular city of Beijing and enjoying a U.S. Embassy visit."

    Awesome they get to do a trip like this. I thought only teams coached by guys with the last name Harbaugh got to do these wacky training exhibitions.

    Drake played the Mexican all star team at the 2011 Kilimanjaro bowl in Tanzania, and it's neat that they do clinics and do service work as well.
