USC Honors Fallen Teammate

As most of you remember, Mario Danelo was the Southern California placekicker who died tragically on January, 6 2007, just days after The Rose Bowl. Starting the 2007 season, Pete Carroll and the Trojans found a special way to honor their teammate...

From Wikipedia:

Danelo was a walk-on college football player at USC in 2003. He redshirted his first year and did not have any kick attempts in the 2004 season. He earned an athletic scholarship starting in 2005. During the 2005 season, he set the NCAA, Pac-10 and USC Trojans season record for hitting 83 out of 86 PATs. In 2006, Danelo led USC in scoring with 89 points.[3] During the 2006 season, Danelo made 15 of 16 field-goal attempts and 44 of 48 PATs.[2] In his final game, the 21-year-old kicked two field goals in helping USC achieve victory in the 2007 Rose Bowl.[1]
