    Mike Garrett--1965

    Two-time All-American Mike Garrett was the man who began the great legacy of USCís I-formation tailbacks.

    He was the Trojansí first--and only the West Coastís second--Heisman winner when he whipped an outstanding field of candidates in 1965.

    Mike set 14 NCAA, conference and USC records in his three-year career, including an NCAA career rushing record of 3,221 yards in the days when 1,000-yard-a-season rushers were almost non-existent. He later starred for the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers.
