USC will honor Charles White during 2023 Trojan football season

It has been a couple of weeks since Charles White passed away, and the USC Trojans are definitely going to find a way to honor the legendary running back.

Athletic director Mike Bohn was texting White’s family right before he passed, and he said that the school will honor him in the fall, according to Bill Plaschke of The Los Angeles Times.

“We’re going to honor him in the fall when fans can join the salute. Charles was a great Trojan who left us too soon, and we’ll make sure his legacy and contributions on and off the field will be remembered forever,” Bohn said.

The Trojans should have quite a plan for White, especially with Bohn saying that he will be remembered forever.

The school even reunited White with physicians from Keck Medicine of USC: “Our doctors understand the power of the Trojan family,” Bohn added.

It was a long, difficult journey for White, who suffered from brain trauma in a life marked with many off-field problems after his playing days ended. His family has now donated his brain to Boston University’s Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Center so that the organization can further study CTE.

Charles White, who won USC’s third Heisman Trophy back in 1979, will be remembered forever in Southern California. Mike Bohn and the program have a few months to think of the perfect way to immortalize his legacy.
