Saleaumua, Tatupu, Tuiasosopo Named Finalists For 2018 Polynesian Hall Of Fame 

The Polynesian Hall of Fame announced 18 finalists that are up for induction into the Polynesian Hall of Fame Class of 2018. The list of 18 inductees includes 15 players and three coaches/contributors. 

Three former Seahawks were included in the finalists: defensive lineman Dan Saleaumua, linebacker Lofa Tatupu and defensive lineman Manu Tuiasosopo. The three were selected from a field of over 200 nominees by the Polynesian Hall of Fame Selection Committee. 

Tuiasosopo played five of his eight NFL years (1979-1983) in Seattle with the Seahawks along the defensive line. Saleaumua played 12 years in the NFL with Detroit and Kansas City before spending the last two years of his pro career with the Seahawks. Tatupu played his entire career with the organization and joined the Seahawks' coaching staff following his playing career. In March, Tatupu parted ways with the team to spend more time with family. 

The five inductees for the 2018 class will be announced on October 10 and will include four players and one coach/contributor. The class will be honored during the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement weekend and during the Polynesian Bowl on January 19 and 20.
