Little chat with ATV

I was walking down from Covel Commons towards campus when I saw a guy with UCLA Athletics gear heading to the same direction. I guessed it was probably ATV, and when I got closer, his bag which has "#20 ATV" printed on it confirmed my guess.

He was walking with his headphones on, and while I respect his privacy, I wasn't gonna let a Bruin Legend and NFL player just pass by without at least giving him a handshake or a pat in the back. So I tapped him on the arms, shook his hands, and had a little 1-minute chat.

He told me he has 1 more quarter to go after this Winter and with the possibility of an NFL lockout, he will spend his Spring in Westwood to finish his degree. At the end I wished him luck for his studies and career. It's a pretty cool experience.

I hope the current UCLA players can benefit from him being around the program, and take notes on what it means to be a real student-athlete and a professional.
