Former Seattle Players Among Finalists For Polynesian Football Hall of Fame

Seahawks Legend Lofa Tatupu is among a list of 12 finalists for the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019, it was announced Thursday. Tatupu, who played linebacker under current Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll at USC and spent all six of his NFL seasons in Seattle (2005-2010), recorded 549 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 35 passes defensed, 10 interceptions, and two touchdowns in 84 NFL games played.

Also a finalist is former Seahawks defensive lineman Dan Saleaumua, who spent two years in Seattle (1997-98), as well as Marques Tuiasosopo, the Woodinville High School standout who went on to play quarterback at nearby University of Washington and spend eight seasons in the NFL with the Raiders and New York Jets.

"On behalf of our Board of Directors, we congratulate the Class of 2019 Finalists," Jesse Sapolu, Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Chairman, Co-Founder and Inductee said in a press release. "Each Finalist had an outstanding career and they are all worthy of induction into the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame."

The 12 finalists were selected from a group of more than 100 nominees. On October 24, four inductees will be announced and later honored during the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend set to take place during the Polynesian Bowl on January 18-19, 2019.
