Rest in peace, Johnny Lattner. The former Notre Dame running back, defensive back and Heisman Trophy winner died Saturday morning at the age of 83. He was battling lung cancer.

His school all-purpose career yardage record stood until Vegas Ferguson broke it in 1979. Lattner will be missed by both the college football and Notre Dame communities.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
