The Boise State football team visited the San Diego Zoo on Sunday morning as part of the Broncos’ Poinsettia Bowl trip.
Seniors and coach Bryan Harsin were taken to a special meet-and-greet with Jake the sea lion, a 455-pound show performer at the zoo. They lined up for pets, hugs and — for the daring — kisses with Jake.
There’s a video of the experience at the bottom of this post (long snapper Kevin Keane was the first to volunteer for a kiss on the lips). You can see my photos at the top of the post.
Below, our guest photographer — injured left tackle Rees Odhiambo — shared five of his photos from the day. Odhiambo will do the same Monday from SeaWorld.
