USC legends Lynn Swann and Ronnie Lott were named to the “Super Bowl 50 Golden Team” honoring the best overall career performances in the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl 50 Golden Team was selected by the Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Selectors in honor of the great championship performances in NFL history. Lynn Swann and Ronnie Lott were among the 26 players selected.
“The Super Bowl 50 Golden Team is an amazing list of incredible individuals,” said Pro Football Hall of Fame Executive Vice President Joe Horrigan. “Each name conjures up memories of some of the sport’s greatest games showcased on its biggest platform, the Super Bowl stage. Unforgettable individual performances like Lynn Swann’s acrobatic catches in Super Bowl X or Joe Montana’s come-from-behind game winning drive in Super Bowl XXIII are forever etched in the collective memories of football fans and celebrated as some of the most inspiring moments in the history of the National Football League.”

At wide receiver, Swann won four Super Bowls with the Steelers and was the MVP of Super Bowl X. In that game, he made a pair of iconic catches, including a tip-toed sideline grab and another which he hauled in after it had been tipped up out of his hands as he fell to the ground. The other receiver selection was Jerry Rice.
Lott was picked at safety alongside Jake Scott. Like Swann, Lott was a four-time Super Bowl winner with the 49ers.
Both Swann and Lott were All-Americans and national champions at USC. In addition to being Pro Football Hall of Famers, they have each been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
