    SAMOAN kids outta the STATE of Hawaii have a great chance to do well. SAMOAN kids on the mainland even better. Proud to see the Uso's reppin their SAMOAN blood, their Roots and their new home. Good luck in TIDE COUNTRY Uce.

    Coming from Hawaii as a Samoan has many chances than Samoans coming from Samoa.. Just wanna thank all the uso's that made it big for paving the way for many undiscovered talented Samoans out there and for all Polynesians who are beasting on the field... Malo le finau!

    • Sefa Moa

      Tama Fai Popo: SAMOAN kids making it outta Samoa to the league is damn near impossible, but through the State of Hawaii anything is possible. Samoan kids in the mainland have the golden opportunities. It's great to see our SAMOAN people representin and never forgetting their roots. Samoans paving the way not only for other Samoans, but for other Polynesians to follow. Ma'lo lava.

    "Never forget where I came from" "It's so big to come from Hawai'i, and it's unusual to make it out of Hawai'i" This so humbling man, seeing guys making it out of Pride Rock and doing it big, Gives the youth so much hope!! People stay overlooking players from Hawai'i let alone any type of potential and not just sports. One thing you learn growing up in Hawaii, is putting that 808 state on the MAP, cause you don't get that much opportunities to do so being so isolated and growing up on a small island. HUMBLED

  • Emmanuel Jenkins
    Emmanuel Jenkins 6 months ago +2

    so is he going to bama? because he seems like he wants to play against his brother in college. which makes more sense to me because they are close in age. only 2 school years apart. unless tua goes to the nfl after this year his brother will be his back up as a freshmen and possibly a backup behind jalen. he would lose a year. i doubt he wants to redshirt.

    • PlayBoyJay

    Don't know how long ago this was shot but I'll bet Coach Saban doesn't like hearing him saying he'd like to get an offer from Clemson and "playing against Tua." Really hoping he sticks with Alabama. They could become the greatest brother duo in Alabama history if not the country. One more year of Tua as the QB then two years of Taulia. Would be hard to stop Bama from getting 5 in a row

    • Randy Jordan
