Football Mourns the Death of Jim Manley W'55

PHILADELPHIA - The University of Pennsylvania football family mourns the loss of one of its “Munger Men” with the announcement that Jim Manley W’55 passed away Thursday morning.

Manley was a member of the varsity football team from 1952-54, starting at quarterback his senior year. Since then, he has been one of the program’s most prominent alums, including helping to organize the annual “Munger Men” gatherings prior to one of the Quakers' home football games each season. He has been a member of the Football Sports Board since 2007.

“We share in the loss of a great friend, mentor and Marine,” said Al Bagnoli, currently the George A. Munger Head Football Coach at Penn. “He is a true Pennsylvanian who represented the Red and Blue with great class and dignity. He will definitely be missed.”
