Ed Orgeron, USC's interim coach, never said he intended to implement a star-studded guest speaker series in the Trojans' program.
But it appears to be happening.
A week after Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Allen addressed the Trojans, former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis on Tuesday spoke to the team in the McKay Center before practice.
“I’ve never seen so many guys that quiet and that focused on one man,” quarterback Cody Kessler said.
“He can make you believe you can go fly and jump over a building,” tailback Javorius Allen said. “That’s how inspirational he is.”
Orgeron said senior associate athletic director J.K. McKay arranged for Lewis' appearance.
"Very, very powerful," Orgeron said of Lewis' presentation.
