USC offensive tackle Austin Jackson will donate bone marrow next week to his little sister, Autumn, who suffers from Diamond-Blackfan anemia.
One thing about the lawsuit filed by Rick Courtright. It shows a different side to Clay Helton, which is consistent with USC assistant coaches who say the “nice guy” image changes inside the McKay Center and view him as “two-faced.”
The lawsuit said Helton agreed to make Courtright the 10th assistant coach at USC and eventually barred him from campus and forced him to resign.
Today is the birthday of USC’s first All-American, Brice Taylor. He was one of its first African-American players.
Taylor was an All-American 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 pictured above.
USC has still not announced how it will honor the 1969 and 1994 teams now that the Salute to Troy has been canceled. I mention this because if people don’t continue to focus on it, USC might sweep it under the rug.
