You cannot make this stuff up. According to LA Daily News’ Scott Wolf, a homeless man, was acting like a full member of the team, and getting by security for days. The man reportedly shared a jacuzzi with players, ate at the football dining facility without issue, and slept at a suite in the Coliseum.
He was almost all the way in. Until it came to fielding punts.
“What gets me is the guts the guy had to just walk in like he belonged,” said the security source. “He must have been a cool customer in the McKay Center. If he hadn’t tried to return punts at practice, he might still be out there because they might not have noticed him.”
Former USC football player Petros Papadakis reported the story was in fact true.
The man likely was able to gain access to areas that typically would have had more security measures because some procedures were reduced during the pandemic. Either way this homeless man was very close to suiting up. Just imagine if he would have been able to catch the punts……
