Troy Aikman came to UCLA to do one thing on and off the field–pass. He led the Bruins to a 20-4 record during his career, becoming an All American, the West Coast Player of the Year and the first player from UCLA to win the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s top quarterback. Aikman’s tenure in the NFL is legendary–he won three Super Bowls, played in six Pro Bowls and was elected to the Hall of Fame. After becoming a successful sportscaster, Aikman returned to UCLA in 2008 to complete his degree in sociology and even attended commencement–proving that no matter the task, he always liked to see things through to completion.
