How is Norm Chow not on the list? Has he no polynesian blood?
@wwookie and Duckhunter, I'd have to say I agree with
Duckhunter. I would add because it is harder for Tongans to immigrate, there
were fewer Tongans in the 70's and 80's. There are still fewer Tongans
in the US, relative to Samoans.
@wwookie"Only kemoeatu is Tongan. What gives? ;)"I also found that interesting but I have a theory. Tongan's are much more
recent to the game than Samoan's and Hawaiian's who have been playing
it for a long time because of their ties to the U.S. A lot of those names are
old time guy's, I am willing to bet there will be an increase, probably a
very large increase, in Tongan's over the next few years who are nominated
Luther Elliss and Kevin Mawae are probably in my top 50 favorite all time
football players. Luther's just a great dude, too. I love how involved he
remains with the U and the community in SLC.
Ellis and Gouveia - two of the monster names from the state of Utah.Congrats!
