for Euless Trinity and then coach Steve Lineweaver. The first time I met Coach Lineweaver, we were sitting in his office talking about the upcoming Nike Camp...when a pickup truck full of huge polynesian kids pulled into the parking lot. They were starting to arrive for practice :) He proceeded to tell me the story of the diversity at Trinity HS and specifically why there were so many Polys there.
Apparently many of them work for the airlines (at DFW in this case) so they can travel back to the homeland. That story kind of tied everything together for me about the Polynesian enclaves in Southern California and Utah, which is the home base for Delta airlines!
I lobbied ASU and CHE to bring in Laiu when he was finishing up as a grad assistant at TCU. He could have rekindled that DFW connection and been a much needed Poly ambassador throughout the west for ASU. Glad he caught on with Graham in Hawaii and the athletic department here should definitely keep an eye on him for the future.
