Time and again, Brenden Rice indeed made it clear that he’s not looking to walk in his father’s shadow but forge his own path. But the world has a way of comparing a son to his father. However, despite the comparison, Brenden Rice is way ahead of his game. He’s not only a star player for the Trojans, but he’s also inking business ventures with major labels and brands. 

Brenden Rice is someone who thinks outside of the box. He’s someone who won’t let anything distract him until he achieves what he feels is worthy of being celebrated. With the upcoming game and preparation, he could have missed his dad’s birthday. But what if he’s planning for something different? There could be a surprise out of the blue for Jerry Rice.
