LOS ANGELES -- USC starting right tackle Kevin Graf feels a sense of urgency not just because of his senior-to-be status. Coming from a legacy of Trojans offensive linemen, he knows he represents the end of an era.
It just seems like a Graf has always been an anchor on the offensive line through the years. Kevin's brother, Derek, played during the glorious Pete Carroll era and started in the 2003 Orange Bowl. His father, Allan, was a starting offensive guard on the Trojans' legendary 1972 national champions under Hall of Fame coach John McKay.
So now that the eligibility clock is ticking down, it's the beginning of the last roundup for the last of the Graf family offensive linemen.
