I mentioned last week the 1967 team was honored at Salute to Troy. Several people at Salute to Troy have mentioned the 1992 team was also recognized and that only two players showed up. That’s a shame.
USC walk-on Grant Moore earned a scholarship Friday. Here is the most famous moment of his father, USC linebacker Rex Moore (35), when he threw mud through the face mask of Notre Dame tailback Allen Pinkett during the 1984 game at the Coliseum, played in a horrible rainstorm.
“Never happened,” Moore said. “If the refs didn’t call it, it never happened.”
If you want to watch Moore’s moment, click here and go to the 1:42:30 mark.
USC might end up being fine this season with its kickers. But in the meantime, it has two kickers (Michael Brown, Chase McGrath) who have talent but were not heavily recruit. Brown had offers from Cal and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. McGrath is a walk-on at USC. So if anyone is struggling, should it be a surprise?
Brice Taylor was the first All-American in USC history in 1925. He accomplished this despite not having a left hand. Taylor was also the head coach at Southern University and helped start the Bayou Classic against Grambling. He is also in the USC Hall of Fame.
