Desert Chapel Christian Schools was hosted by Brandon O'Neill, National Director of Food and Beverage with American Golf, to a super-exclusive, behind-the-scenes, tour of the GRANDADDY OF THEM ALL... the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA.

A group of students, faculty and guests gathered in the belly of the stadium - the home team locker room - to hear Mr. O'Neill speak on his life, faith, and motivation to be the best he could be.  "You have the ability to make a choice every day.  The choice is NOT to be average.  The choice is to be great.  That's on you... The good Lord put you here to not be average," explained O'Neill.

The group then travelled to the top of the stadium and sat in the press box overlooking the grand field, which was being prepped for UCLA's spring football intrasquad game.  Guides from the Tournament of Roses filled the attendees in on the unique and storied history of the Rose Bowl and it's annual football game.

Then the group got to do what very few individuals on the planet have had the opportunity to experience - stepping on the hallowed ground itself!

After a lunch feast back in the locker room, the group departed back to the Desert with minds blown and dreams set to someday reach the pinnacle of thier own lives - wherever that takes them.
