Throughout today to the start of the Ponderosa-Natomas football game at Simon-Bruin Stadium, Eastbay will have its 70-foot trailer lined with athletic apparel at the Ponderosa campus from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and again from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. The truck will be at the back black top at the players entrance near the football stadium.
“We get a significant discount that will help us purchase new uniforms, warm-up gear, for all of our athletic teams at a discounted rate,” Escobar said. “We can purchase Nike, Adidas, whatever each individual programs would like. We are lucky enough to have the Eastbay’s 70-foot trailer at our first home football game. I am very excited to check it out and for the kids to go through it.”
According to Escobar, Eastbay is expected to bring more than 200 shoes and a footwear fitting area. In addition, there will also be a photo booths, interactive athlete videos and more.
“It’s going to be very cool for our student-athletes to check out,” Escobar said.

Escobar said current Bruin student-athletes aren’t obligated to purchase their athletic appeal from Eastbay.
