Where are they now - Mike Mooney

I know I've been out of pocket, but I needed to bring up Mike Mooney. if you followed the Jackets during the Bobby Ross years, and particularly the 1990 National Championship run, then you probably remember Mike Mooney, a key offensive tackle. Well, is some incredibly sad news as Mike died in his sleep last week. He was 37 years old. Mooney was known as an all-around good guy who was well liked.

Mike is survived by 2 sons, 6 and 3 years old, and a daughter also 3, and a wife of 11 years. Jacket nation sends their best to the Mooney family. Jacket nation lost one of our own but Mooney certainly leaves a legacy on the field and at home.

Rest in peace Mr.Mooney, and our prayers go out to the Mooney family.
