LA Roundup: Kobe Wins Governor’s Award at Emmys, USC Lands Another 4-Star Recruit for 2021, and More!



Welcome to another roundup, where we gather all of LA sports’ biggest stories of the day!

Kobe Bryant accomplished more things in his short time on earth than most people can ever hope to accomplish in a lifetime, and that list grew by one on Saturday evening. The Lakers legend was awarded the Governor’s award at the 2020 Emmys, an award given for his impact off the court and inspirational way of living. It’s always been clear that Kobe was special, and receiving this award further proves that his impact reached much further than just the game of basketball. It’s a shame that he didn’t get the opportunity to share more of his gifts with the world before his death, but what he did leave is a legacy worth remembering.

USC has been quiet in recent weeks, but they made another splash early Sunday with the addition of Prophet Brown. The name alone should tell you that the kid is special, but his talent will be a game-changer for a Trojan team searching for a comeback season. Brown is expected to be one of the best cornerbacks in the country and appears ready to help continue the proud traditions of Southern California.
