Watch Robert Paylor’s inspirational keynote speech

Paylor was selected as Cal Athletics keynote speaker for the virtual graduation ceremony

In an emotional and moving tribute to the California Golden Bears who virtually graduated, former rugby player and an inspiration himself, Robert Paylor was selected as the keynote speaker for Cal Athletics’ virtual graduation ceremony.

Following a moving tribute from his former coach Jack Clark, Paylor gave a tremendous speech about not only his time at and after Cal but also what it means to graduate from the No. 1 public university in the world.

And thanks to the Cal Varsity Rugby Twitter account, we have the chance to watch it in its entirety.

Take a look, and watch for yourself as Paylor even stands up and walks on his own at the end.

Go Bears!
