Tabor kicker dies in car accident

A Tabor College football player died in a one-car crash on I-35 near Tonkawa, Okla., on Sunday.

Marcus Patrick Manny, 23, a senior from Dallas, was driving northhbound Sunday evening when his car ran off the road and overcorrected, hitting an embankment and flipping the car.

Manny kicked the game-winning field goal in Tabor’s 32-29 win over Southwestern last season.

Tabor coach Mike Gottsch called Manny “a competitor in every sense of the word.”


In addition, Manny played in 27 games for Tabor, made 62 of 82 extra-point attempts, and 16 of 34 field goal attempts, with a career-long field goal of 41 yards. He earned Honorable Mention All-KCAC honors this past season.
