Louis was very proud of being a Trojan. He happily wore his USC hat in public and private, and was quick to hug any fellow Trojan. During his remarkable athletic career as an Olympic runner, by his endurance on the life raft, and with his resilience at the torturous hands of "the Bird" during WWII, Louis' life exemplified the "Fight On" spirit. Amazingly, his impact on other people continued as he grew older. His example inspired thousands to be better people, myself included.
