- Sarah Chester and her daughter, Payton, were among the nine victims who died in yesterday’s helicopter crash that claimed the life of Kobe Bryant. Sarah Chester was the niece of former USC wide receiver Bob Chandler, who played for the Bills and Raiders, and has an award named after him that is given a USC football player at the annual banquet. He was also the player of the game of the 1970 Rose Bowl.
