Remembering Polo

Freshman defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu has passed away.

Terrible news this morning, Ags. Polo Manukainiu was reportedly killed in a car accident overnight. We here at GBH would like to offer Polo's family, friends, and teammates all our thoughts and prayers during this tragic time.

Polo was a highly touted 4-star defensive end out of Euless Trinity High School. He redshirted last year and was expected to make an impact this year on the defensive line. Polo was loved by his teammates and will be missed by all. We'll update this story with news reports as they come in.
