I feel so bad for his family, teammates and friends. What a sad ending to a promising young life.
This is a contact sport, and sadly stuff like this happens. Rarely, but it does happen. I think the police will have an uphill battle trying to prove criminal intent, especially since Manny was grappling with the other boy, too, and not just the other way around. It's just so sad when something like this happens.
Comfort and blessing to Manny's family, and to all involved.
