    Best of luck to Manti.

    He is a far better representaitive of the faith than Mitt IMO.

    What an amazing athlete. Manti has class. He has shown heart, ability and leadership in guiding Notre Dame to the national championship game. He is deserving of the Heisman because football includes both offense and defense.

    Aloha; I'm from Hawaii and went to Roosevelt High and were friends with the Te'o family. I remember the family so well to this day. That was 50 years ago. The love they have of life and family and God is legendary. I remember wanting to date Mima, Rocky Te'o daughter and how I had to prove my worth for such an honer.That was scary. Manti was and is the kind of kid I tried to be. But The Viet Nam war and all changed what people thought of me after I came home. He and his family are and what we should try to be. When he fail's and he will, you will see the great kid he is. I just know this must be a very hard burden on him.
    May the God of Israel bless and keep them together, Mahalo for all the Te'o family has taught me.

    Manti and Star both wanted to attend BYU coming out of high school. In the Lavell Edwards era, All America players like these enrolled and completed successful careers at BYU. The honor code was NOT a problem for either of these players.

    Perhaps Brandon Doman should visit Lavell Edwards rather than the Islands to figure out how to recruit and hold on to quality people and players like Star and Manti.

    These are the worst finalist for the Heisman I have seen in awhile.
