USC'S Ambrose Schindler Named to Rose Bowl Hall Of Fame

Nov. 1, 2002

LOS ANGELES-Ambrose Schindler, who led USC to a 14-0 victory in the 1940 Rose Bowl, has been named to the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame.

He will be inducted in a ceremony at the Rose Bowl Kickoff Luncheon in Pasadena on Dec. 31.

In the 1940 Rose Bowl, Schindler ran for a touchdown and threw for another as USC gave Tennessee its first loss in 24 games (it was the only points scored on the Volunteers that season).

Schindler, a member of the USC Athletic Hall of Fame, lettered 3 seasons (1936-37-39) at tailback for Troy. He led the Trojans in rushing, scoring and total offense in 1937 while earning All-Conference honors.

He went on to teach at El Camino College in Torrance, Calif.

He is the 16th Trojan in the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame. USC has appeared in an unprecedented 28 Rose Bowls, where it has a 20-8 mark. That's not only the most Rose Bowl wins of any team, but also the most wins by a school in a single bowl.

Schindler will be inducted along with Michigan's Mel Anthony, who starred in the 1965 Rose Bowl.
