  • Ricky Lynn Bell (April 8, 1955 - November 28, 1984) was a running back who went to college at USC, where he still holds the single game rushing mark of 347 yards, set against Washington State University in 1976. He led the nation in rushing as a Junior in 1975 with 1,957 yards. Ricky was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy as a Senior in 1976 to Tony Dorsett after finishing 3rd in the voting in 1975 as a Junior. Ricky was voted Pac-10 player of the year in 1976.

    Ricky was the NFL first overall draft choice in 1977, selected by the National Football League Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 1979 Ricky enjoyed his finest season, rushing for 1,263 yards and leading the Buccaneers to the NFC Central Division crown. Ricky led the Buccaneers to the 1st Playoff win in franchise history that season by rushing for 142 yds and 2 touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    He died in 1984 of heart failure caused by dermatomyositis.

    He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2004.
