Captain of the football team, boy-next-door type, rugged good looks and an outgoing personality. MANNY knows he’s good looking but doesn’t let it go to his head. Boyfriend to LIZZIE. Questioning his sexuality, can’t believe he’s really gay, thinking it must be a phase. He isn’t really attracted to girls, but everyone expects him to date, so he tries to play along. Had a fling with ANDY at football camp, actually loves ANDY, but is deathly afraid of anyone finding out he is gay.
