Mendocino's Mari inducted into Humboldt's
Athletic Hall of Fame
Ukiah, CA - Mendocino College Assistant Head Football Coach Mike Mari has been inducted into the Humboldt State University Athletic Hall Of Fame.
Mari, a Eureka, California native, was a four year starter on the offensive line for the Lumberjack’s (1995-1998) and a three time all-conference selection. While at Humboldt, Mari was a Strength and Conditioning All-American.
After finishing his career at Humboldt, Mari played two seasons in the Arena Football League for the Oklahoma Wranglers (2000-2001).
Mari then returned to Eureka, to coach at St. Bernard’s High School for five seasons, where they won the North Coast Section in 2003.
For the last four seasons, Mari has served as the defensive coordinator and a health instructor for Mendocino College.
“It is very humbling to be elected to the Humboldt State University Hall of Fame. I had many great memories there and this just tops it off,” Mari said.
The Humboldt State University Athletic Hall of Fame will be held October 12 at 6 p.m. in the Kate Buchanon Room.
