LOS ANGELES -- Given all the attention to the USC quarterback competition is getting, it’s easy to forget that in order for this edition of the Trojans to be successful, they will need junior placekicker Andre Heidari to return to his freshman form, when he garnered first-team All-Pac-12 honors.

Considering that Heidari had such an impact his freshman season in helping Lane Kiffin's 2011 Trojans to a 10-2 record, it's understandable that the kid with the powerful leg would just as soon forget all about his injury-plagued 2012 season.
