VIDEO: 49ers’ Jim Harbaugh plays “Peruball” while tripping over rock


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is all about giving back. Whether helping non-profits or traveling the world on a goodwill trip, Harbaugh is a man among boys as he tries to better the world, and his annual visit to Piura is no different. Located in South America, Harbaugh took a trip to this small town about 600 miles north of Lima.

The show which was featured on CSN Bay Area shows Harbaugh visiting orphanages, building houses, delivering food and teaching kids how to play “Peruball.” A game in which coach invented, where it’s a cross between rugby, football, and soccer (I think).

Watch Harbaugh play “Peruball” via Matt Maiocco’s instagram as he engages in a fun game that all can enjoy.
