USC diehards in search of Anthony Davis need only drive an hour southeast of Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to AD 28 Development in Irvine.
“The Notre Dame Killer” has worked in real estate since the 1980s while acting as an ambassador for USC and college football. But it hasn’t always been easy.
A November 2010 profile in the Los Angeles Times documented how Davis had more than $33,000 in state liens and civil judgments from 1997 to 2006. Many of Davis’ side ventures have failed or been shelved.
Nonetheless, USC fans have not forgotten the running back who left school with 24 school, conference and NCAA records. Not to mention indelible memories such as the “Anthony Davis Game” in which he led the Trojans back from a 24-point deficit to Notre Dame.
Davis was also a member of USC’s back-to-back-to-back NCAA title-winning baseball teams from 1972-74 and was selected in both the NFL (New York Jets) and MLB (Minnesota Twins) drafts. He opted for football, where a journeyman career spent in the NFL, WFL, CFL and USFL ended in 1983. Anthony Davis profile
