As the sports and entertainment worlds say goodbye to the legend, look back on his public achievements and private family moments

FIGHT ON

After enrolling at the University of Southern California in the late '40s, Los Angeles-area native Frank Gifford made his mark on the school's football team. "He was kind of the glamour boy for that particular team," fellow football star Sonny Jurgensen told SI.com. "But when he played, he was a heck of a player. He could run the ball, he could throw the ball, he could play defense." Ultimately, he was named an All-American athlete.
