CHANDLER, Ariz. and PASADENA, Calif. -- As Chandler High School star Brett Hundley took the field for UCLA this weekend, his real offensive line was in the stands.
If you want to know why he has been so successful and is expected to be first-round draft pick, all you have to do is meet the many matriarchs of the Hundley family from the East Valley. They keep him grounded in humility, hard work, and the knowledge that with fame comes a wonderful platform to do good, which he is already doing for his sister, Paris, who suffers from epilepsy.
"He makes sure the worlds know, 'I am this great athlete, but I have a sister who is just as courageous as me," April said.
Just don’t ask mom April, who was graduated from Arizona State University where she was a cheerleader, for whom she cheers for when ASU plays the Bruins.
I had the chance to meet up with gregarious family at Bam’s Top Five Barbershop in Tempe.
