Mario Danelo, USC Kicker, Found Dead

Mario Danelo, USC’s kicker, was found dead today at the foot of a cliff, ESPN reports.

Danelo’s body was found at the bottom of White Point Cliff in San Pedro, according for a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department. Police did not release further details.

Danelo, a redshirt junior, walked on with the Trojans in 2003 and earned a scholarship in 2005, according to the USC athletic department’s Web site. He was 15-for-16 on field goals this season and made 44 of 48 PATs, leading the team in scoring with 89 points.

Danelo is the son of former NFL kicker Joe Danelo.

Horrible news. The cause of death is not known at this time.
