Tim Rossovich, a consensus All-America defensive end at Southern California who played in the NFL before going on to an acting career, has died. He was 72.

Rossovich died Thursday in Sacramento after a long illness, the school said Friday.

Rossovich played at USC from 1965-67 and appeared in two Rose Bowls. He was co-captain of the 1967 team that won the national championship. Rossovich was inducted into the school's Athletic Hall of Fame in 2015.

He was selected with the 14th pick of the 1968 NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles and played linebacker for them from 1968-71, getting named to the 1969 Pro Bowl. He also played for the San Diego Chargers in 1972-73 and Houston Oilers in 1976.

During his football days, Rossovich had a reputation as an intense and eccentric personality. He was famous for pranks that included chewing glass, setting himself on fire, jumping off rooftops and driving motorbikes off piers.

So was just getting the latest from Placids Corpse Chronicle and while I was saddened to read about big Roger, I was absolutely floored to read about the death of the great Paul Sherwen.

As a keen viewer of the grand tours, Paul, together with Phil Liggert, was part of my life each winter for many, many years during the grand tour season and provided outstanding insights into the world of cycling.

As someone who grew up sports mad, playing and watching as much sport as I could, losing such iconic sporting voices from my childhood such as Richie Benaud, Tony Grieg, Whispering Ted Lowe and now Paul Sherwen, hits home how quickly time passes & how much closer I am to biting the big one.

For me, only Phil Liggert, Martin Tyler & an Australian rugby league commentator name Ray Warren remain as the last significant sporting voices from my childhood, and that's sad.
