Arizona State Coach Bruce Snyder, on his first Rose Bowl experience: "It was the 1957 game, Iowa and Oregon State. I was a junior at El Monte High School and I volunteered to drive a Rose Parade float because they gave you a free ticket to the game.

Adrian Castro, 19, was courteous and stubborn in his own way, making sure that anything he started, he finished, said his dad, Raul Castro. “That was my right-hand man and now he's no longer with me,” he added.
