SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) John Lattner, the 1953 Heisman Trophy winner who helped lead Notre Dame to a 9-0-1 record and a No. 2 ranking in Frank Leahy's final year as coach, has died. He was 83.

Lattner died early Saturday morning at his home in Melrose Park, Illinois, of mesothelioma, said his daughter, Gretchen Spillane. She said he was exposed to asbestos while working as a pipefitter in high school or college and had been diagnosed with the cancer about 18 months ago.

Notre Dame held a moment of silence before its basketball game against Louisville on Saturday.
