Former UCLA football player and ESPN high school analyst Nick Ekbatani was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident over the weekend.
He was reportedly struck on his left side by a taxi cab and had to have his leg amputated as a result. Ekbatani played offensive guard at UCLA from 2006-09 after a successful high school career at South High School in Torrance.
Following graduation, Ekbatani was hired by ESPN as a football coordinator, specializing in offensive and defensive lineman.
