Former USC Star Damon Bame Dies

Damon Bame, a two-time All-American and member of the 1962 national champions, died last week, according to multiple reports. He was 77.

Bame was a left guard and linebacker and intercepted a pass in the famous 1963 Rose Bowl, where USC defeated Wisconsin, 42-37.

He was named USC’s outstanding lineman in five of USC’s 10 regular-season games by sports writers and sports casters. He was the Associated Press national lineman of the week in USC’s 39-14 victory over Stanford.

Bame was a member of the 1963 Playboy All-American team with wide receiver Hal Bedsole and a two-time conference first-team selection. He is not in the USC Hall of Fame but deserves to be.

      2. You Godfearing people makes me want to puke. Even the governor knows. He won’t let you whorship while he sends thousands into the streets to plunder pillage and protest. We know that this is the true way. Now everyone is getting sick he knows how to blame you stupid people who think morality counts for something. Hell he’ll just say it started at a birthday party and all us folks will follow. That’s my truth. The only truth. Everybody knows that we say black lives matter because we don’t value life anyway, you sick creep. Don’t you know why all the old folks were targeted. Because they are the last freethinkers. Beastiality is best. Go newsome Go cuomo Go biden

    3. Damon Bame don’t deserve to be in the hall of fame! Look at that picture, not one black dude on the “all american” team! What a joke! I’m sure he was pretty good…. for a white guy! Like Isaiah Thomas said “If he was black, he’d just a good guy” not an all american!
