Pacific Islanders play tough!

Samoan NFLersDid you know that there are over 40 Pacific Islanders who play in America’s National Football League?

From Isaac Sapoaga on the San Fransisco 49ers to Naufahu Tahi on the Minnesota Vikings — these tough guys play tough! They uses their brawn and smarts to play with the top players in the United States, and make the South Pacific proud!

Many of the players are from Samoa. Do you know why? Samoans are often pretty big! Isaac Sapoaga is 6 feet 2 inches tall, and weighs 330 pounds! If I saw him coming down the field towards me, I’d skip away as fast as possible!

Check out this neat video about an American Samoan named Troy Polamalu. He leads one of the top teams in American football, called the Pittsburgh Steelers. They won the Super Bowl in 2009 — that’s the biggest competition in American football. Malo, Troy! Congratulations!
