The American Samoa U-19 Football Team Return 5th in the World in Their First Try in the Under 19 American Football Championship Series

Most of the U-19 football team returned Monday, July 9th 2012, and were greeted by the Lieutenant Governor Faoa Sunia, other government officials, and many family, friends and supporters. Our boys did not return empty handed; they are currently ranked #5 in the world in the under 19 American Football Series, two players from the team on both offense and defense made the all-tournament team, and the team coach Mr. Pooch Ta’ase was garnered coach of the tournament.

This is an awesome accomplishment for the youth of American Samoa, that will certainly open more doors for a promising future in sports and more.
