I was at DigitalId World in San Francisco this past week and had the privilege of meeting Hall of Fame Cornerback Ronnie Lott. It was fun to get his autograph and talk with him briefly about one of my best friends in high school, Phil Bradley. He and Phil played against each other college and Phil’s roommate/teammate, Eric Wright, ended up being a teammate of Ronnie’s on the 49ers. Ronnie remembered their first game in college was against each other. USC was ranked #1 and Missouri’s starting senior QB was injured so Phil played most of the game and almost beat them. I was there with my dad on the 50 yard line with Phil’s parents. I was also in the locker room with Phil after the game when he got swarmed by reporters trying to learn about him and was even interviewed myself 🙂
My new good friends at Securent, Rajiv and Ranjeet, had Ronnie there signing footballs and I’m lucky enough to be getting one.
