USC football’s newest hype video touts the Trojans’ loaded NFL history.
USC football’s new video team is working overtime to produce high-quality hype videos for the Trojans.
The newest one set a new bar while running through the history of USC’s exceptional NFL production.
“Legends were built here,” USC’s football account tweeted on Wednesday night along with the video.
It all starts with some quick stats: USC has 511 draft picks and 12 NFL Hall of Fame inductees to brag about.
And brag about them they do.
The video opens with a highlight from Mark Sanchez with the New York Jets that transitions to video of wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster catching a pass for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
From there cornerback Adoree’ Jackson gets a mention along with quarterback Sam Darnold.
Next comes a flash of Keyshawn Johnson (hilariously, the first version of the video misprinted his name as Keyshawn Jackson) catching a pass in the endzone.
Sections also belong to legendary safety Ronnie Lott and No. 1 overall pick Carson Palmer.
Offensive lineman Ron Yary is followed by running back Ricky Bell, Anthony Munoz and Willie McGinest.
The video ends with offensive lineman Bruce Matthews and safety Troy Polamalu.
Darnold, Smith-Schuster and the more modern players will get their chance to etch their names in NFL lore for good, but that list of mentions is littered with all-timers.
Munoz, Lott, Yary, Mathews and Polamalu are Pro Football Hall of Famers.
The highlights could have gone on even longer if they included the rest of USC’s Hall of Fame players including halfback Frank Gifford, tackle Ron Mix, end Red Badgro, running back O.J. Simpson (left out for obvious reasons), defensive back Willie Wood, wide receiver Lynn Swann, running back Marcus Allen and linebacker Junior Seau.
Those are some heavy hitters. Maybe they’ll fill up USC’s next highlight reel.
