UCLA football: An Osaar Rasshan sighting

August 28, 2009 | 12:36 pm

Oshar_240 Former UCLA quarterback Osaar Rasshan was loading boxes on to a cart before the Bruins practice today.

Rasshan was forced to take a medical retirement because of shoulder problems. But he remains active at the university, working with youth camps. He underwent shoulder surgery and has eight weeks of rehabilitation left. Rasshan said he will then begin working out with a Tampa Bay Devil Rays scout in an attempt to restart a baseball career.

Rasshan was a four-year letterman in baseball at Pomona's Garey High School, playing pitcher and third base. His fastball was clocked at 94 mph in high school.

Pre-practice notes:

-- Kicker Kai Forbath is dressed for today's scrimmage and said he will test his sore right leg.

-- Fullback Chane Moline (hip flexor) and guard Stanley Hasiak (shoulder) are dressed to play.

-- Wide receiver Gavin Ketchum (hamstring) will not participate in the scrimmage.

-- Chris Foster
