VIDEO: SAMOA NEWS PLAYERS & PLAY OF THE WEEK — SECOND WEEK OF ACTION
Selected as the 2013 ASHSAA Football “Player of the Week” for Week No. 2 of the Varsity Division is “Julius Fitisemanu” the “Energizer Bunny” (#22) from the Crusaders Marist-Faasao football team. Fitisemanu is in his second year as a Crusader, and is now a Senior. He has showcased a huge improvement in his talent and skills as a defensive player, which helped Marist beat the Stallions 50 - 8 last Saturday.
Fitisemanu who already has an offer from BYU on a football scholarship, recorded 9 solo tackles, 12 assists, 2 sacks, 4 tackles for losses and 1 forced fumble.
He is the son of Pouesi Fitisemanu and Siatulau Levi. Julius has always been a stand out player since his Freshmen year appearance at Tafuna High School — he played there for two years. However, last year, his Junior year, Fitisemanu transferred to Marist, and continued to shine in a different uniform.
Samoa News congratulates Samoana Shark - RB #5 Ferrin TK Manuleleua for earning this year's Junior Varsity (JV) Week No.1 Samoa News “Player of the Week".
Manuleleua helped the Sharks tremendously this past Saturday in their win against the reigning Champs, Tafuna Warriors with a 14 - 12 victory.
Last year, Ferrin was a Freshmen Running Back (RB) out of Fagaitua High School. This season, his Sophomore year, he joined with the forces from the deep blue sea, the Samoana Sharks.
Manuleleua racked up almost 200 yards last Saturday on 17 carries, an average of 11 first down conversions throughout the game, 1 Touchdown, 5 complete passes, and 9 broken tackles.
