DOTD: Mandeville, La. Mayor Declares Michael Mauti Day

Michael Mauti is a Penn State legend for a number of different reasons. Whether it be legendary hits like this, or, most recently, stunning the Atlanta Falcons with this blocked punt for a touchdown, his antics on the professional football field exhibit a passion that makes Penn Staters proud.

The Mayor of Mandeville, La., Donald Villere, apparently shares this sentiment, and was so proud of Mauti after his performance last Thursday that he officially named Friday, Oct. 16, 2015 Michael Mauti Day in the city of Mandeville, Mauti’s hometown.

In a Facebook post, Mayor Villere was “Proud to announce Friday [as]  Michael Mauti day after his exemplary performance in Thursday night’s Saints game. Mandeville is proud of you Michael.”

The Saints ended up defeating division-rival Falcons 31-21 to end the the team’s undefeated streak. Mauti will continue to fight for playing time by doing what he does best on special teams as well as in his limited opportunities on the defensive side of the ball. He certainly has a little extra inspiration now.
