LOS ANGELES (AP) -Ralph Heywood, an All-American end at Southern California in 1943 who later served in three wars as a U.S. Marine, has died. He was 85.
He died Tuesday in Bandera, Texas, the school said. The cause was not given.
Heywood captained the 1943 USC team that went 8-2, including a 29-0 victory over Washington in the Rose Bowl. He led the Trojans in receiving in 1942 with 12 catches for 205 yards and 1943 with 11 receptions for 196 yards.
He earned All-American honors in 1943 despite being called into the Marine Corps after five games. He had a 32-year career as an officer in the Marines.
He is survived by his wife, Charlotte (Suzie), stepson Robert, stepdaughter Geri and three grandchildren.
A funeral service will be held Monday at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.
