I missed this when I was away but former USC All-American Steve Riley died on Sept. 16 from cardiac arrest. He was 68.
Riley was an offensive tackle on the 1972 national championship team that went undefeated and named an All-American in 1973.
Riley was a first-round pick in 1974 and spent 11 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, where he started 128 of the 138 games he played. He also played in Super Bowls IX and XI.
He came to USC from Castle Park High School in Chula Vista.
A memorial service for Riley was held on Sept. 24 in San Clemente.
