Seau with daughter Sydney and son Jake in 1998. Pictures from this photo shoot are among Sydney's favorite keepsakes of her dad. Two months before his death, Seau took Sydney to visit the campus of USC, where he was an All-American in 1989 and she had committed to play sand volleyball. He managed to go unnoticed on campus for most of the day, but inside the bookstore a large crowd began to gather. "That was such a proud moment for Sydney to see her dad like that and realize, 'I'm going to school where my dad was a legend,'" says Gina.
