A ceremony will be held later in 2020 to celebrate the honor.“The Rose Bowl has always and will always hold a very special place in my heart,” said McNown. “Words can’t describe how humbled I feel to be bestowed with this tremendous honor.”McNown will be enshrined in the prestigious College Football Hall of Fame by the National Football Foundation as part of its 2020 class later this year. In calling the Rose Bowl its home field since 1982, McNown is the only UCLA Bruin in the program’s storied history to have thrown for at least 10,000 career yards. He will become the 16th Bruin to enter the College Football Hall of Fame. McNown had a lifetime 4-0 record against cross-town rivals USC and led some of the most iconic years in Bruin football history.He quarterbacked the Bruins to a school record 20 straight wins over the course of the 1997 and 1998 seasons, posting a 30-14 career record as a starter. Following the 1997 season, McNown helped to engineer a comeback win over Texas A&M in the 1998 Cotton Bowl while earning Offensive MVP honors. He finished eighth in the Heisman Trophy balloting that year and led the nation in passing efficiency with a mark of 168.6 after completing over 61% of his passing attempts and throwing 24 touchdown passes against six interceptions.“Cade is part of the heartbeat of our historic venue for so many reasons,” said CEO and General Manager Darryl Dunn. “It is an honor for us to educate our visitors on his legacy and impact on the game of college football at America’s Stadium.”A consensus 1998 All-American, McNown was named the Pac-10 Co-Offensive Player of the Year and the winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. He was selected as the Quarterback of the Year by the Quarterback Club of Washington, D.C., as well as, the Pop Warner Award recipient recognizing him as the top player on the West Coast for the 1998 campaign. McNown was also a Davey O’Brien Award finalist, third in the voting for the 1998 Heisman Trophy.Growing up in California and Oregon, Cade has strong roots in the Southern California community and in the Rose Bowl family.  A current member of the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation’s Advisory Board, he was a four-year starter at quarterback for the Bruins. The left-hander led the UCLA Bruins to two Pac-10 Championships and a Rose Bowl Game appearance in 1999. As two-time All-American, he left UCLA as the career record-holder in nearly every statistical category before being drafted in the 1st round (12th overall) by the Chicago Bears in the 1999 NFL Draft, Cade played professionally for four seasons with the Bears, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers.“Cade has always been an extremely special part of this stadium’s history and that of UCLA Football,” said Chief Development Officer Dedan Brozino. “Thank you to the many donors who supported this project to ensure that Cade’s legacy is highlighted in such a special to all fans whenever they visit the Rose Bowl Stadium.”Beginning in 2017 with the dedication of the Jackie Robinson football statue in front of its main entrance, the Legacy Foundation has continued adding significant heritage projects around the venue’s property due to key donations from its support base. Other completed statues include the 1999 Team USA Women’s World Cup Championship Team and Keith Jackson, both dedicated in 2019.  In 2017, the venue’s original locker room was saved and currently serves as a museum-like space recognizing the history of the National Historic Landmark.Last year, with significant help in its planning from Pasadena Heritage, Legacy began raising funds to place historical markers around the venue to highlight some of its key moments.  McNown’s marker is the third on the property thus far (Myron Hunt at Gate A). The Legacy Foundation hopes to add more historical markers to educate its visitors about past events and contributors to the Stadium’s sports and entertainment timeline.  Some markers include UCLA’s ‘Gutty Little Bruins’, UCLA’s 1982 move to the Rose Bowl, Michigan Coach Bo Schembechler, Grambling Coach Eddie Robinson, George Halas, the Ivy League, Brown University star Fritz Pollard, Notre Dame’s Knute Rockne, Stanford’s Pop Warner, and several more.McNown entered the financial sector after his football career, and he is currently a senior managing director for Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors in Los Angeles where he is responsible for institutional business development and client relations. He serves on various committees and boards for organizations such as Young Life, Friends of Golf (FOG), and Scouts BSA. He has also consistently volunteered at the California Showcase, an event sponsored by the NFF and headed by legendary UCLA Coach Terry Donahue that gives unsigned high school football players an opportunity to try out for divisional college football programs and earn scholarships.About the Rose Bowl Legacy FoundationFormed in 2010, the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation is a 501©3, tax-exempt organization whose primary goal is to financially ensure the protection, preservation and enhancement of the future of the Stadium as a National Historic Landmark.

Evans set for United exit

first_img Press Association Jonny Evans has been told he can leave Manchester United – and Everton appear to be the front-runners for the centre-back’s signature. Press Association Sport understands the United boss is now looking to offload Evans, even though he is currently on tour with the Red Devils in the United States. Everton are reportedly keen on signing the 27-year-old defender, who may cost up to £8million. United are looking to bring in another centre-back before the start of the season. Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos is understood to be their first choice, but the Spanish giants are reluctant to sell the experienced defender, who has been tipped to replace Iker Casillas as club captain. center_img Evans has made 198 appearances for United over the last eight years but he failed to make an impression in Louis van Gaal’s first season at the club. The Northern Irishman started just 12 Barclays Premier League matches last term, with Van Gaal preferring to use Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo at centre-half. last_img read more
