Former Torrey Pines High School football coach Ed Burke seeks families to host members of Japanese football team

Former Torrey Pines High School football coach Ed Burke is hosting the senior members of the Ritsumeikan Uji Panthers football team from Kyoto, Japan, and is looking for families that are interested in hosting a player.

They will arrive the Friday evening, Aug. 17, and depart early Monday morning, Sept. 3.  The team will be attending school and practicing at Torrey Pines during their stay, so most of the transportation needs will be similar to that of students attending Torrey Pines.  They will be on campus from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m each school day.

You will be asked to provide their meals, including a bagged lunch, during the two weeks that they are attending classes. At times the boys will be attending special events where a meal will be supplied or purchased by the player at no expense to you.  A daily stipend of $15 will be provided to help offset your food and gas expenses.

This will be the sixth year that the senior members of the Panthers football team have attended Torrey Pines, and every year has been a wonderful opportunity to get to know extraordinary young men from another culture. Many of the former host families have established a lasting friendship with their player that remains active today – a truly special experience.

If interested, please contact Ed Burke by phone at (760) 331-7412 or through email at edandloretta@sbcglobal.net.
