LOS ANGELES -- When prep All-American offensive tackle Zach Banner (Lakewood, Wash./Lakes) made his announcement to attend the University of Southern California, he told the masses that there were several factors that contributed to his signing a national letter of intent with the Cardinal and Gold.

One of Banner's deciding factors to come to Los Angeles is to pursue an eventual career in broadcasting, following in the footsteps of his famous father, former NFL All-Pro tackle Lincoln Kennedy, who has enjoyed a post-football career as a successful sports broadcaster.
