    • LARANETA-Manuel Laraneta was a 3-sport star at USC. He lettered in football for 3 seasons (1924-25-26) as a fullback, where he played in the Trojans' first bowl game (the 1925 Christmas Festival) and set the school career interception record (13) that stood for 15 years (he's still sixth on the list). Unofficial records claim he scored the first touchdown in the Coliseum during the freshman team's 1923 victory over Santa Ana High and that he rushed for 1,165 yards as a senior in 1926 to lead the nation. He also lettered in basketball in 1926 and 1927 (he captained the 1927 squad) and in baseball (1926). He later became a football coach at San Pedro High and was inducted into the San Pedro Sportswalk. The Varsity Lounge in USC's Heritage Hall was named in his honor. He died on Jan. 9, 1969, at age 65.
