Remembering Sam Dickerson


Several readers have said USC wide receiver Sam Dickerson passed away from cancer on Dec. 23. A generation of USC fans will never forget Dickerson’s most-famous catch in 1969, a sliding 32-yard reception in the back of the end zone with 1:32 remaining against UCLA that led to a 14-12 victory and sent USC to a then-record fourth consecutive Rose Bowl appearance.

They called the Coliseum end zone, “Sam’s Corner,” in honor of his catch.
