Thanks for the update on his GPA, I figured as much as Stanford would not have
offered him if he was not academically strong. Again, too bad the DNews does
not feel that his academic prowess is important enough to mention in this
Stanford seems to be stockpiling defensive players this year like they did with
offensive linemen two classes ago. They will be a very formidable team for quite
some time.Congrats to Christian. I hope to see him excel in Palo
Props to his Mom and Dad for raising him right.
@ Big U FanWell said!
Christian Folau has a 4.0 gpa. That is why Stanford could offer him. Praise to
Christian for his hard work and dedication to his education and his athletic
drive for becoming an outstanding Athlete and Student. A 4.0 deserves high
admiration. He's an example to all for showing that we can play hard on
and off the field.
Agree with footballisgood. Great to see Utah kids go to big time institutions.
However, a commitment does not mean he's been admitted to the school. Kids
have to be academically eligible and most of them are barely eligible at the
high school level. But props to East on finding the loophole in charter school
system and using it as a feeder to get these out of boundary Polynesian kids
into the East program. Nonetheless, all the best Christian!
Well deserved! East High got a lot of talent this year!
Not sure what is worse, giving East props for building a football factory and
thus justifying their "win at all costs" mentality, or announcing that a
fine young man has committed to Stanford and not mentioning one word about his
grades. Wow, no wonder we have our priorities screwed up
Dang it. Hate to see the U lose an instate kid, but it is understandable.
There is no way to beat a Stanford education and a scholarship worth $58K a
year. Good luck except when you play the Utes.Congrats to the East
High program as well.
