CHARLES WHITE - CHAMPION AT USC AND SAN FERNANDO HIGH SCHOOL
For those of us who are USC Trojan fans, the 65th Rose Bowl Game played in Pasadena in January of 1979, was a terrific day. The SC boys defeated the Michigan Wolverines, champions of the Big Ten Conference by a score of 17 to 10.
However, for the San Fernando Valley, the 1979 Rose Bowl perhaps even more exciting. Why? The reason was the brilliant USC running back Charles White, who is a graduate of San Fernando High School. In San Fernando, was the hero of the day.
White was, not only a great San Fernando High School football player, but the winner of the low hurdles at the CIF State championship as well.
