I’m not going to say linebacker Richard Wood (83) was underappreciated even though when there used to be a committee to pick the USC Hall of Fame, I constantly had to bring his name up to lobby for his inclusion. Eventually Wood made it. He was USC’s first three-time All-American. And he also made the College Football Hall of Fame.
So he’s worth a moment of appreciation. Plus any time there is a color picture, it’s worth looking at here. That’s defensive tackle Art Riley (70) also in the picture.
