More Info
Perhaps you recognize Aiulua Fanene's name from television. That's right--Aiulua Fanene appeared in a 2010 60 Minutes episode that was widely viewed. The focus of the episode was to uncover why so many professional football players (more than any other place proportionate to population) come from American Samoa. Aiulua Fanene was interviewed at length and invited viewers to see his family, home, and training regimen. Aiulua Fanene is one of 12 children and he is fluent in English, Samoan, and Tongan. Aiulua Fanene was born on November 3, 1992 and is now a part of the Arizona Wildcats roster with hopes that this will launch him on his path to football superstardom.

Aiulua Fanene grew up in Nu'uuli, American Samoa. He graduated from Tafuna High School where he played offensive guard and defensive end for the football team. He was a co-defensive player of the year on his team but also saw international opportunities like leading his state's team to victory over Hawaii and competing for Team USA in a game versus The World as part of the pro-bowl game.

Aiulua Fanene adjusted to plenty during his inaugural 2010 freshman season with the Arizona Wildcats football team. He was slated to focus on the offensive line rather than try defense, too. And the travel is enormous: Arizona lies 5,000 miles from the lush island of American Samoa.

Aiulua Fanene is an unforgettable guy with an incredible story. You need to see him live! Purchase your Arizona Wildcats football tickets today!
