Note: I originally posted this on the Bruinsnation site. Hope you don't mind me cross-posting it here. I know there are a lot of ATV fans here that might enjoy it and I also wanted ATV to see it. No problem if the moderators take it down if you feel it not appropriate for your site. (By the way, ATV, thanks for the autograph on the UCLA ball-cap!)
Props to Matt Stevens for spotting Alterraun Verner and getting him to join the 570KLAC radio crew for the pre-game show last Saturday. In the following clip, ATV shows his uncommon maturity talking about the importance of education as he is already planning ahead for his career after football.
It would be great if ATV got an off-season gig to give such a talk to all (especially incoming) UCLA athletes. He really is an inspiration.
Full interview after the jump.ATV talks about his transition to the NFL and it was funny to hear how ATV had to figure out how to get down to the Rose Bowl and park as a fan and not as a member of the FB team.
Love seeing ATV represent his alma mater! Thank you ATV for coming home and giving us some good mojo. Continued good luck to ATV in Tennessee and hopefully a long career in the NFL. No matter what, ATV is already a success.
