USC to honor late Charles White with helmet sticker during 2023 season
USC will honor the late Charles White this season with a special No. 12 sticker on the team’s helmets.
White, the 1979 Heisman Trophy-winning tailback and member of the Trojans’ 1978 national championship team, passed away earlier this year at the age of 64 after a battle with cancer. A Trojan legend, he’ll remain close to the program as USC begins its quest for another national title.

White was USC’s third Heisman Trophy winner and still ranks as the school’s career rushing leader with 6,245 yards (then the No. 2 mark in NCAA history) while scoring 49 touchdowns. White was a two-time unanimous All-American (1978-79) who set 22 NCAA, Pac-10, USC, and Rose Bowl records across his four years in Los Angeles.
He captained the 1979 Trojans while leading the nation in rushing. As a senior that season, he also captured the Walter Camp, Maxwell, and Pop Warner Awards.
White was a three-time all-conference first-teamer (1977-79), won the 1978 Voit Trophy, and finished fourth in the Heisman voting as a junior.
USC debuts this season at home against San Jose State at 5 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Network.
