Buddy Tuamasaga (3rd from left), of Samoana High School recently received a full ride football scholarship to Tyler Junior College located in Tyler, Texas.
 
“We are very proud  and very happy for Buddy to be given this ‘Golden Opportunity’ to further not only his education, but to be able to play football with his other brothers at the college level,” said the mother. “We would also like to send a special thank you to the Smart brothers, Brian and Brandon Smart of Field House 100 (FH100) American Samoa and Keiki Misipeka for helping make all of this possible,” she said.
 
He will be joining other Samoan football players currently enrolled in the college.
 
FH100 American Samoa is a non-profit organization designed to help student athletes in American Samoa gain acceptance into college by helping the students transition from high school to college.
