Lua & Ana Tuiasosopo

Back in the Spring of 2004, during their oldest son's Freshman year in High School Ana & Lua Tuiasosopo were contemplating and discussing both their sons Ana Jr., & Tui's futures after High School. The questions they asked themselves."What will it take to get both our sons to College" on an Athletic Scholarship. The person who has been the greatest influence to the Tuiasosopo's and who helped navigate them & point them in the direction they should go is none other than former UCLA, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks standout cousin Manu Tuiasosopo.

Lua & Ana Tuiasosopo His greatest advice was to get your sons to the "NIKE CAMPS"," expose your sons to the specific College Camps", "Start early" Manu said, beginning their Freshman/Sophomore year in High School.
