Other guests include: Rafer Johnson (Olympic Gold Medalist for Track & Field); Cade McNown (NFL Quarterback); DeShawn Foster (NFL Running Back); Toby Bailey (NBA player); Tyus Edney (NBA player); Kai Forbath (UCLA Football Kicker); Ryan McGuire (MLB player); Eric Byrnes (MLB Outfielder); Sinjin Smith (professional beach volleyball player); Ann Meyer Drysdale (NBA player and 1st woman to be inducted into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame in 1988); Danny Farmer (NFL Wide Reciever); Ed and Charles O’Bannon (NBA basketball players); Jason Kapono (NBA basketball player); and Marques Johnson (NBA basketball player).
