Coming from the world of commercial real estate banker and investing his time as a UCLA radio analyst, Matt Stevens says he’s found a very nice balance in his life today.
“I feel like I’m the luckiest guy in the world,” the 45-year-old Stevens said from his offices in San Diego.
A nice career as a UCLA quarterback — leading the team to the 1986 Rose Bowl over favored Iowa — followed by some time in the NFL, Arena League and even overseas, Stevens triumphed as a cancer survivor before embarking on broadcasting nearly 15 years ago.
