She went through a tragedy, losing her son 

Cassandra lost her only son, Trevin when he was five years old. He died of heart disease. 

Trent, at the time, was a backup quarterback for the Seahawks and was deeply saddened by the death of his son. 

He thought he had no reason to play football. But it was his Seahawks' teammate Matt Hasselbeck who helped him rise again. 

During an interview, Trent said Matt was walking him through the most difficult time of his life. 

He was 265 pounds and was drinking to himself. He had no answer to give when Cassandra asked what was going on. He was depressed

Then Matt said to him that he loved him so much that he wouldn't let him do too much to himself and that he needed to return to Seattle

Trent credited Matt for saving his life in 2003 and the type of father and type of husband he is today.

The reason her husband left retirement to coach UAB football

Trent played as a quarterback for 14 seasons in the National Football League (NFL). 

Following his retirement in 2008, he served as ESPN's NFL analyst until 2017

He decided to leave his retirement and became a high school school. In 2023, he took a head coach job at UAB

During an interview with Adam Breneman, when asked about the reason behind leaving retirement, Trent said he had every male's American dream. 

He retired at the age of 45, made a bunch of money, lived in a mansion on a lake, played golf 218 times in 2018, and went to see his girls play volleyball. 

He did it for three years, but then one day, he woke up realizing that he didn't have any juice. 

His wife and kids were starting to tell him he was different. 

“They were nice about it at first. They were like, you are not the same, you’ve lost your edge, lost your juice, you’re not taking care of yourself, and so I kind of felt I needed something hard”, he said.
