He was not yet 12 years old and could not be legally paid, so instead, he was given flying lessons in exchange for his work. Kent worked there for five years before playing football at his Baldwin Park High School.

After he graduated, the youngster enrolled at Citrus Junior College and then transferred to the University of Southern California in 1961 to become a physical education instructor and football coach.

In February of 1961, Kent was asked to participate in a touch football match on a team captained by Ricky Nelson against the opponents led by Elvis Presley.

Afterward, he and Ricky became friends, and the former cast him on the hit series “The Adventure of Ozzie and Harriet.” Kent also appeared in a few Elvis movies, including “Viva Las Vegas” and “Roustabout.”
