"When I was growing up in East Los Angeles, everyone in my neighborhood was a UCLA fan because of Jackie Robinson and Kenny Washington," Garrett is quoted as saying in "UCLA vs. USC: 75 Years of the Greatest Rivalry in Sports," a Times publication written by Lonnie White.

It was New Year's Day 1956, and at the Rose Bowl, 30 or so rows up on about the 35-yard line, Alvin Kajzerkowski, his parents, two sisters, a brother-in-law and a nephew got to their feet, as did more than 100,000 other fans, to get a better view of the final play of the game, a field-goal attempt.
