Three-time Super Bowl Champion Randy Cross, who played for both UCLA, and the San Francisco 49'ers joins me in the huddle to discuss how sports has shaped his life. I love the fact that he never lifted until he played professionally. Can't do that nowadays. Here are some of his stats and also what he is doing below.

  • Was a state shot-put champion in high school.

  • Was named All-America twice at UCLA; helped the Bruins defeat top-ranked Ohio State in the 1976 Rose Bowl.

  • Was drafted in the second round of the 1976 NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Made the Pro Bowl three times and played on three Super Bowl-winning teams.

  • Final game as player was Super Bowl XXIII in 1989.

  • Has worked as an analyst for CBS, NBC and Sirius Radio.

  • Hosts the Randy Cross Invitational golf tournament, which has raised millions of dollars for the Stanford, Cal., Ronald McDonald House.

  • Was selected in the 2010 class for the College Football Hall of Fame.

Randy Cross is a veteran football analyst who joined CBS Sports Network in 2009. He calls select college football games and also serves as a studio analyst on the Network's weekly roundtable show INSIDE COLLEGE FOOTBALL.

Cross previously worked for CBS as an NFL game analyst from 1989-93. He returned to the NFL ON CBS from 1998-2009 as a game analyst and studio analyst for three years with THE NFL TODAY. Cross has covered the NFC Divisional Playoffs and Championship games, as well as Super Bowl XXVI. He also served as an analyst for CBS Sports Radio’s coverage of Super Bowl XXIV. During the Network's coverage of Super Bowl XLI, Cross reported during the pre-game show from Baghdad with coverage of American soldiers who were serving in the Iraq War.

Following Cross’s earlier tenure at CBS Sports, he spent four years at NBC Sports as an analyst for its NFL broadcasts. He also served as an analyst for select Notre Dame games, including the 1995 Fiesta Bowl and also as a reporter for Super Bowl XXXII.
