Football season ticketholders will receive an exclusive invitation to participate in an online Spreecast with new USC head coach Steve Sarkisian and some of his players as they preview the upcoming spring football practice.
Sarkisian, who was the quarterbacks coach on USC's 2003 national championship squad and spent the past 5 years as Washington's head coach, inherits 18 starters off of last year's 10-4 Trojan team. Joining them are 19 new scholarship players who make up a recruiting class that was ranked in the Top 10 nationally.
The Trojans will employ an up-tempo no-huddle offense and an aggressive attacking defense.
Among USC's key players are All-American defensive lineman Leonard Williams, tailback Javorius "Buck" Allen, who had 1,027 all-purpose yards (785 rushing) and 15 touchdowns last fall, wide receiver/returner Nelson Agholor, the nation's No. 2 punt returner in 2013 who also had 56 receptions and 1,444 all-purpose yards, linebacker Hayes Pullard (USC's 2013 tackle leader), quarterback Cody Kessler, who threw for 20 TDs and nearly 3,000 yards in a fast-finishing 2013 campaign, and cornerback-safety Josh Shaw and Freshman All-American first team safety Su'a Cravens (each had 4 interceptions in 2013).
"We will not shy away from the expectations that USC football embodies, we will embrace them," said Sarkisian. "I came here to win championships and so did all of our players. We will be an up-tempo, no-huddle offense. Our style will be somewhat reminiscent of what the offense was at USC when I was here before, but it will just be run at a lot faster pace. We want to be a team that runs the ball effectively and throws the ball efficiently.
"Our defense appears to be the strength of our team. That's a great sign. But we have plenty of room to improve and grow. I like how we can evolve. We will play an aggressive, attacking style on defense. The ability to do that starts up front and I think our front 7 is very strong."
USC's leading passer, top 2 rushers (and 5 of its top 6 ground gainers) and 4 of its top 6 pass catchers (and 13 players in all who had a reception) are back from 2013. The Trojans averaged nearly 30 points and 400 total yards last year. The Trojan defense was in the national Top 25 in 8 statistical categories last season (including total defense, scoring defense, rushing defense and pass efficiency defense).
USC begins spring football practice on March 11 on campus and it culminates with a Spring Game in the Coliseum on April 19 at 3 p.m. Spring drills on campus are open for public viewing from Dedeaux Field.
