Ron Yary is the only USC player to win the Outland Trophy, which goes to the outstanding interior lineman in the nation and is selected by the Football Writers Association of America.
Yary was a two-time All- American offensive tackle for the Trojans and was a unanimous All-American pick in 1967 when he won the Outland. That season he led the way for O.J. Simpson. The first player picked in the 1968 draft, he was a perennial All-Pro tackle with the Minnesota Vikings and also played for the Los Angeles Rams.
