All summer long, SC Playbook will highlight the Trojan Favorites, listing some favorite things of the 2011 USC Trojans.
To begin, we asked, "What is your favorite (greatest) accomplishment thus far"...
Brice Butler, wide receiver, redshirt junior: "Staying at USC is my greatest accomplishment thus far. I just thought about it through the whole [Spring] semester… It was something that was really all on me, it wasn't on nobody [else] and I could have easily left but for me, I feel like—its going to be challenging of course—but for me to know I can get through this, stay here and be successful is going to be my greatest accomplishment."
Hayes Pullard, linebacker, redshirt freshman: "Getting a scholarship to USC. I always wanted to take the stress off my mom, not let her pay for school. And just becoming a man instead of having my mom take care of me."
Brandon Carswell, wide receiver, senior: "Walking across the stage at graduation [in May]."
Lamar Dawson, linebacker, incoming freshman: "Winning Mr. Football for Kentucky last year [in 2010]. It was a great accomplishment to be recognized as the best player in your state."
Anthony Sarao, linebacker, incoming freshman: "Breaking the shuttle record at the All-American combine."
Kevin Greene, redshirt sophomore, defensive end: "Maintaining my sanity after watching my father [pass], and being able to continue to do what I'm doing."
Armond Armstead, senior, defensive tackle: "I've done everything you're supposed to do up to this point. So graduating from USC, that was the goal and I accomplished it. It's a great institution."
George Uko, redshirt freshman, defensive tackle: "I haven't accomplished anything yet, in my eyes."
Shane Horton, senior, linebacker: "Graduating with a major and a minor, and going into my last season with just one class and being able to focus on having a great season."
Anthony Brown, redshirt freshman, cornerback: "Having good grades at the college level. I promised my mom and dad that I was going to get my degree. Football I'll always be good at that, but I'm really proud of the academics."
Jesse Scroggins, redshirt freshman, quarterback: "I've had a lot of success, but the accomplishments have yet to come."
