Ryan Van Wagenen grew up in Los Angeles and his immediately family has lived in Southern California for quite some time. Ryan's father, Ken Van Wagenen, went to UCLA business school and met his mother, Felicia, while in school. Ryan's mother and her side of the family have been in Southern California for 50+ years.
There are members of the family that have gone to both UCLA and USC. The two schools have quite a different culture when it comes to sports. In football, they both played home games in the Coliseum from the 1920s through the early 1980s. In 1982, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena welcomed UCLA football to have their home games in the "Granddaddy of Them All."
The Rose Bowl has so much history and legacy. The first ever bowl game in College Football was the Rose Bowl in 1902, hence the "Granddaddy" nickname. The stadium holds over 100,000 and hosts a bowl game each January 1st typically between the winners of the PAC-12 and the Big Ten conferences. The stadium also now has ties to the College Football Playoff and frequently hosts games between the top four teams in the country. The Rose Bowl has held football games for the College National Championship, Super Bowls for the best team in the National Football League, FIFA World Cup Finals, and the 1984 Olympic Gold Metal match. A whole lot of history in that stadium a few blocks from our house.
