Polynesian players are as integral to the history and identity of BYU football as quarterbacks and tight ends. They include players like Lakei Heimuli who set the school career rushing record in 1986, Vai Siakhema who set NCAA records, and K.O. Kealaluhi who caught game winning touchdowns against Texas A&M and Kansas State in 1996 to begin and end that special season. Many have gone on to be successful in the NFL.
intent of this section is to celebrate the contributions of these
players, chronicle their role in BYU football history, and educate
about the culture of their home lands.
It will be updated regularly, so come back often to see what it new.
