Michael 'Mickey' Mangham dies
LAFAYETTE, La. -- Michael "Mickey" Mangham, a former All-American right end who scored LSU's only touchdown for a win over Clemson in the 1959 Sugar Bowl, has died at the age of 71.
Mangham's daughter, Elizabeth, said her father died Thursday of a heart attack at his home in Lafayette.
Mangham lettered at LSU from 1958-60 and helped lead the Tigers to a national championship. He scored the only touchdown in LSU's 7-0 win over Clemson in the 1959 Sugar Bowl, which culminated the 1958 championship season. Mangham caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from Billy Cannon in the third quarter to provide the game-winning points.
Mangham's daughter says he also worked as an oil and gas attorney in the Acadiana area until his death.
