It was a freshman game v Cal. He never lettered, but did have a successful career in the NFL coaching. Not a player but John McKay was as much a favorite as OJ. And Pete Carroll goes with McKay. Marlin McKeever was one not mentioned, and if you say Marlin you need to include Mike. Brad Budde was another favorite, I met him at the beach on a recruiting trip. Another favorite was Joe Bottom, a swimmer who had a shot at the gold medal in 1980 until Jimmy Carter played politics with the Olympics. Mosi and Lofa Taputu were also favorites. Another favorite was Marc Goux. And of course my favorite USC catcher was Steve Sogge, who quarterbacked a championship team. As a fan for 55 years I’ve had lots of favorites including many others already listed by the others. Rodgarnay51 likes this.
