Three stars make their returns

From UCLA:

It feels like Alumni week here at UCLA.

Earlier, it was reported that Baron Davis and Ed O’Bannon were back on campus attending classes.
Well, basketball is not the only sport with famous alums returning to school.

Gaston Green, UCLA’s career rushing leader, is also in school and attended his first classes on Thursday.

Green, who lives with his family outside of Atlanta, will be attending both A and C sessions and will graduate at the end of the summer. During his four seasons (1984-87), he rushed for a school record 3,731 yards. His 40 touchdowns also set a record and still rank third on that UCLA list.

“I’m back in school to get my degree because I’m trying to get into the field of coaching, as well as other sports-related fields which require a college degree,” said Green about his return to UCLA.

“As a young student-athlete, sometimes you don’t realize the value of getting your degree. However, I can say now that the windows of opportunities are greater with a degree than without one. You give yourself a chance to have options with a degree.

“It’s great to be back here on campus. I have a lot of fond memories in my life and many of them were created here wearing Blue and Gold!”

    Nothing surprising about youur story. We have always taught the athletes to return any time to get their degrees. Baron and Ed represent all of the good qualities desired in UCLA athletes. And just think how good they would have been if they hadn’t had devastating knee injuries!
