2019 Pac-12 Hall of Honor inductee: USC safety Ronnie Lott

Mar 5, 2019
One of the greatest safeties in USC and NFL football history, Ronnie Lott was known for his ferocious hits and heady, aggressive play. At USC, he was a 1980 All-American and team captain and a four-year letterman (1977-78-79-80), playing on Troy's 1978 national championship team as well as three bowl-winning teams (including two Rose Bowls). The eighth overall selection in the 1981 NFL Draft, Lott starred for 15 years (1981-95) in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Raiders, New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs, playing on four winning Super Bowl teams with the 49ers and in 10 Pro Bowls.
