Leigh Steinberg became such a force as a sports agent that he ended up being the inspiration for the movie "Jerry Maguire." Along the way, Steinberg represented more than 60 first-round picks in the NFL draft. Eight of those players went No. 1 overall. The first was those was Cal quarterback Steve Bartkowski.
That Cal connection -- Steinberg earned a B.A. in political science and then his law degree at Berkeley -- was the basis of his career, and it is why the Golden Bears' football program inspires a special devotion and loyalty from within him.
