Steven Manfro, son of NYPD officer sick from 9/11, turned in his UCLA football uniform for an LAPD uniform

Former UCLA running back Steven Manfro, 25, is following in his father’s footsteps and becoming a cop, reports Eric Sondheimer in the LA Times. 

Marc Manfro, his dad, spent 17 years in the NYPD as a transit cop and is sick from his work at the World Trade Center site in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.

Steven Manfro joined the Los Angeles Police Department this week. The family moved to California after Marc’s retirement from the NYPD.
