A local legend, Keyshawn Johnson grew up in the shadow of the Coliseum and dreamed of playing for the Trojans.  He did more than that.

In his two season at Troy, Johnson led USC to wins in the Cotton Bowl and Rose Bowl with MVP performances in both.  In the two games, he caught a combined 20 balls for 438 yards and 4 TDs.

From there, he built his name and persona in the professional ranks as the No. 1 overall pick of the 1996 NFL Draft.  He won a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Bucs and made the Pro Bowl three times over his career.
