If you listen closely to the reserve offensive linemen at an Oregon State football practice, you might hear a player speaking Samoan.
When Kammy Delp made his recruiting visit to Corvallis, he started to talk to Fred Lauina in Samoan.
Delp is from Pomona, California, but was born in American Samoa.
Lauina is from Nuuuli, American Samoa.
When Delp arrived at OSU for fall camp, Lauina quickly discovered that it was easier for Delp to understand some of the finer points of playing on the offensive line if he went through it in Samoan.
