Got a quick Troy Polamalu story: CFB player died in an accident. TP's friend asked if I can get a # for the family. I track it down. (PT 1)— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) April 10, 2015
I figured Polamula was gonna send a card. I found out a month later from the person I got the # from TP paid for the entire funeral & more.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) April 10, 2015
Texas A&M defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu and his younger brother Andrew "Lolo" Uhatafe were tragically killed in a car accident in 2013. I later heard that Pittsburgh Steelers' safety Troy Polamalu covered the funeral expenses, and Bruce Feldman's tweets this evening verify the story. Gig 'em and God bless, Troy. Even though you just retired, you have a lot of new fans in Aggieland.
Update: Bruce Feldman posted a great story with more detail, including a response from Polo's uncle.
