The coronavirus pandemic continues to hit home for USC Trojans fans, this time as former USC great and College Football Hall of Fame member Tony Boselli recounted his story, diagnosis and just how serious things got when he was admitted to the intensive care unit with the COVID-19 virus.

Boselli spoke on the Dan Patrick Show, discussing his journey from simple ER visit to being admitted to the ICU and beyond. The coronavirus pandemic has forced the shutdown of nonessential businesses across the country, the cancellation of sports as we knew them among several other major issues it’s causing across the world.

The clip, shared on Twitter, gives a tease of the full interview, but still shares some intimate details on how it went from routine to extreme.

Boselli was a two-time All-American while at USC and a two-time NFL Lineman of the Year while in the NFL. He was selected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2014 after his pro career finished with him being decorated as one of the best offensive tackles to play at USC and in the NFL.

He was a four-year starter at USC, two-time All-American first-teamer and three-time All Pac-10 first-team member. A captain as a senior, he won the Pac-10 Morris Trophy and was selected as a National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete before being selected second overall in 1995.

Wishing you the best in your continued recovery, Tony! Stay safe Trojan Nation and #FightOn!
