Two College Football Players Killed

Posted on August 20, 2014

Two College Football Players KilledTwo College of the Canyons football players were killed Friday. A third was injured.

Isaiah Treveon Hastings, 19, and Alexander Koudjian Manu, 18, were killed, while Eldridge Salguero remains in the hospital.

“We’re just devastated,” said Head Football Coach Ted Iacenda in a statement. “Our team came together in a unique way over the summer, and the loss of Isaiah and Alexander leaves a void that I can’t begin to describe. We’re grieving for their families, and staying positive for Eldridge.”

The three were riding in what police describe as a two-seat car in Sylmar Friday, when the car lost control. Their car collided head-on with a minivan. Two people inside the van were treated for moderate injuries.

All three players graduated from Birmingham Community Charter High School in San Fernando Valley, Hastings was an All-City Player of the Year, officials at College of the Canyons said.

Manu was “larger than life in every sense,” Iacenda said in an interview with NBC Los Angeles.. “Big hair, big body, big smile. “He was one of those personalities where everyone on the team knew him, liked him and gravitated toward him because of his demeanor.”

“We’re grieving the loss of two student athletes whose lives and potential were tragically cut short,” said College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne Van Hook in a statement. “This was a special group of young men who clearly understood the power of teamwork. Isaiah Alexander, and Eldridge had already distinguished themselves during their short time with us. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families, and we’re hoping for the best for Eldridge.”
