Mark Manering

La Porte graduate Mark Manering played two years in the Yankees farm system after standout careers with the Slicers and Miami (Ohio).

Baseball turned out to be Mark Manering’s claim to fame, but it was on the football field where the trajectory of the La Porte graduate’s athletic career changed.

“I absolutely loved football,” Manering said. “But I got hurt my sophomore year and my mom said, ‘You’re not playing football anymore.’ It was probably the best decision I ever made.”
