Still the Trojans’ career rushing leader with 6,245 yards, White — who also spent nine years in the NFL — passed away after a battle with cancer. He died in Newport Beach, California.
“He was the toughest player I’ve ever coached,” said White’s former USC and Los Angeles Rams head coach, John Robinson. “He was really unusual in that regard. He was a great player and just loved playing the game.”
Former USC star Charles White -- the 1979 Heisman Trophy winner -- died on Wednesday, the Trojans announced. https://t.co/7zj7AaogPx
