Charles White, perhaps the greatest tailback in USC history, died today of cancer. He was 64.
White won a national title, a Heisman Trophy, was a two-time unanimous All-American, won two Rose Bowl MVPs and is the all-time leading rusher in USC history (6,245 yards).
He also won the Walter Camp, Maxwell and Pop Warner Awards after his senior season.
White was the 27th overall pick in the 1980 draft by the Cleveland Browns, and spent five years with the Browns. He joined the Rams in 1985 and played four more seasons under John Robinson, finishing his NFL career with 3,075 yards rushing.
White ran for a career-high 1,374 yds and 11 touchdowns for the Rams in 1987.
