Football Player
    (January 26, 1991- )
    Born in Laie, Hawaii
    Linebacker on University of Notre Dame's football team (2009-2012)
    Drafted 38th overall by the San Diego Chargers in the 2013 NFL Draft
    His left arm is covered by a massive Samoan tattoo.
    Due to his strong religious faith, and speaking openly about it, he was compared to Tim Tebow.
    Deadspin.com revealed the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, due to leukemia, was a hoax (January 16, 2013).
    He admitted to ESPN that he'd lied to his family about meeting Kekua in person.
    He claimed he was a victim of an online hoax; conspiracy theorists focused on discrepancies in his story.
    He mentioned Kekua's death at the Heisman ceremony, days after he reported the hoax to Notre Dame.
    Some accused him of working with alleged hoax perpetrator, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, to generate publicity.
    Te'oing, or, people taking pictures with their invisible significant others, became an instant trend on Twitter.
    He earned the rank of Eagle Scout.
    He volunteered with several charitable organizations, including Special Olympics.
    He generated considerable Heisman Trophy buzz; a rarity for a defensive player.
    He helped Notre Dame re-emerge as a nationally relevant football program during his time at the University.
    His story generated media attention at a time otherwise dominated by debates over gun control and the flu epidemic.
    His grandmother, whom he was very close to, actually died in September 2012 (the day he truly believed Lennay Kakua died, too).
