St. Francis Preparatory H.S.’s football Coach Richard Carroll wants to raise money for a new portable scoreboard. So he’s decided to swim the shark-infested waters of San Francisco Bay.

Coach Carroll joined Currents News to discuss the two-mile route he’ll be undertaking from Alcatraz to San Francisco, how he’s been preparing for the journey and why he’s doing it for the student-athletes in Queens.
