Before there was Taylor Mays, there was Ronnie Lott. Lott is one of the hardest players to ever wear Cardinal and Gold. He played at USC from 1977-1980. In 1978 he led the Trojans to a share of the national championship. In 1980 Lott was a unanimous All-American and team captain.
Lott won four Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers. He played 14 years in the NFL, killed multiple wide receivers that went across the middle, had 63 career interceptions (5 of which he returned for a TD), lost one pinky finger and was a first ballot Hall of Famer in 2000.
Lott was on the Dan Patrick show this morning to talk about the start of the NFL season. To listen to the full interview click here.
