It’s probably best not to call USC a young team this season, thanks to the extra year of eligibility granted to players.
Defensive lineman Caleb Tremblay is 24. Tailback Vavae Maleapeai is 23. Safety Micah Croom is 23. Offensive lineman Bernard Schirmer is 24. Snapper Damon Johnson is 23. Offensive lineman Frank Martin is 23.
Of course, no one compares to punter Ben Griffiths, who is 29.
USC should feel right at home when it faces BYU in terms of players’ ages.
- I’m guessing USC baseball got those seven suspended players back. The Trojans have won 7 of 8 and overcame a 4-1 deficit in the ninth inning vs. much-feared UCLA last night.
