This past Monday, Texas A&M freshman Polo Manukainiu and his high school teammate/cousin Gauis Vaenuku were killed in a car accident in New Mexico. Manukainiu was a redshirt lineman at A&M, while his cousin was on set to begin playing at Utah this upcoming fall.

The accident occurred when the boys were driving back from Utah. Their vehicle rolled over on US 550, outside Cuba, New Mexico.

New Mexico State Police report that the 2002 Toyota Sequoia had begun to drift off the highway. The driver has not been identified, but police believe he overcompensated in response to the drifting, which is what caused the vehicle to roll over multiple times. It has been determined that alcohol was not involved in causing the accident.

According to Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, “Polo was loved by his teammates and coaches. Anyone who came into contact with him was struck by his sense of humor and smile. My heart aches for his mom and family members.”

Utah coach Kyle Whittingham also had a comment to make. “Everyone who knew Gaius is heartbroken today…He was the kind of young man who lit up a room and his future in football and life had no boundaries…Words cannot express our devastation over the loss of Gaius.

The cousins had attended Trinity High School in Euless, Texas together. Their principal, Mike Harris, said, “They were students with bright smiles that everybody knew and loved.”

This accident was tragic, and the teams and family of both men will miss them greatly. Unfortunately, horrible, unexpected accidents like these happen more often than they should.
