At the end of his interview session on Tuesday, UCLA receiver Devin Lucien looked into the cameras and offered a heartfelt dedication to his mother, Trina Matthews — who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
“I’m trying to keep it down, but number one, I wanted to thank everybody for all their support when I was in the hospital,” Lucien said. “And I want to thank everybody for what they’ve been talking about my mom. You know, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, so — trying not to get soaked up — that’s been a lot. And this season is dedicated for moms, point blank.
“And that’s another reason for the (hair)do, because it’s really about to go down and people aren’t understanding — let me look at all the cameras when I say that.”
