They know how to eat. I don't think they know how to not eat. I served in Florida in area with hugh compliment of Polynesians show up at dinner time you will get fed. I gained plenty of weight there.


Polynesian families are very involved in the recruiting process. Most of the kids being recruited today have fathers, uncles and cousins who played college football or coach at various levels. Because Polynesian children are taught to respect their elders, these family members have a great deal of influence on where these kids go. Anderson would not be having the kind of success recruiting Polynesian players that he has had if he didn't have credibility in the Polynesian football community, many of whom he has coached. Aside from the football aspects, Polynesian families want to know that their kids will be taken care of and Anderson is proving that they can trust him to take care of their kids.
