Born and raised in Southern California, I was fortunate enough to spend four years at UCLA before playing 18 years in the National Football League. I was able to realize a child hood dream and play in the Super Bowl. My 18 years in the NFL have taught me many valuable lessons. The value of being on the right team and having an effective game plan are two of them. It is impossible to succeed at a high level in business without a proven game plan and the right team players to maximize results.
