New, 2 comments

This morning, a service is being held for Polo Manukainiu near Fort Worth, TX. The Texas A&M football team and coaches will attend.

The Aggie Football Team will attend the funeral service for Texas Aggie Polo Manukainiu this morning at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Colleyville, TX.

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 on the defensive line this season. Polo was loved by his teammates and coaches. Some of the thoughts posted to social media after learning about the tragic accident that killed Polo and two other teenagers are shared below:
