Football: Bill Redell makes the walk with his players

October 6, 2011 |  6:13 pm

Westlake Village Oaks Christian players, fans, cheerleaders and coaches made the walk from campus to nearby Westlake High on Thursday night, starting a tradition they hope to continues in future years, though the two schools aren't scheduled to play football again unless it's in the playoffs.

Bill Redell, the Lions' 70-year-old coach, was sweating a little afterward but he made the 20-minute walk with his wife, Cheryl.

The team was escorted by a sherrif's vehicle, and there was lots of honking cars as they passed by.

Here's a video look at the experience.
