Ross CummingsUSC Senior Ross Cumming entered the season as a reserve walk-on linebacker. He ended it as a key player at fullback who helped add a physicality to the Trojans' offense.

One of the unsung players for the 2011 USC team was senior linebacker/fullback/special teams performer Ross Cumming.

Cumming was a little-used senior linebacker heading into the season who had made his mark primarily on special teams, but the coaches moved him to fullback for the Arizona State game and his role steadily increased the rest of the year. Cumming is a hard-nosed and physical player so his style worked perfectly as a lead blocker for the Trojans offense. He even caught two passes for 16 yards and added 15 tackles on special teams en route to being named the USC Special Teams Player of the Year.
