Mario Danelo, a kicker for the USC football team, was found dead Saturday in San Pedro, Calif.
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.

How terrible! I hope this wasn't a case of foul play
It's always so sad to see a young person's life end like this. My thoughts are with his family.

I was also shocked when I read it on Sportsline. Hopefully it was an accident, (falling off the cliff) and not foul play. The kid appeared to have a bright future as a person and not necessary as just a football player.

Those cliffs off Palos Verdes/San Pedro can be really gnarly.
I hate to see stuff like that happen. Sounds like he was a good guy.
