That would be great. It's a little strange that the tweet is coming from Bill Ena who coaches at Nuuuila Voc. and Taala is at Fagaitua HS.

I tired to tweet some sources but got nothing. Would love to have Taala, i like the talent in American Samoa, i feel alot of kids get over looked but i know Coach Rolo makes trips out there more than most.

Defensive Line
First Team
Blessman Taala –The 2017 DT is a little undersized at probably legit 6-1 but he is very explosive off the ball and a strong lower body made him a miss match for most all day long. Early offers, from Colorado, Hawaii and others.

Competition for Taala is getting tougher. He got an offer from Fresno St. where Tony Tuioti is the new DL coach.

BLESSMAN TA’ALA

Blessman Ta’ala, the Senior Defensive Lineman from Faga’itua High School, who has verbally committed to the University of Hawaii, said of his experience at the Classic — “the feeling was amazing. Even though the outcome of the game wasn’t what we wanted, but the friendship and brotherhood bond that was created amongst the athletes were more.”

The “beast from the east” was recently rumored on social media about his commitment to the University of Hawaii, and when asked by Samoa News, he confirmed that he had “recently committed to the University of Hawaii (UH). I believe that coach Legi Suiaunoa and Head Coach Nick Rolovich are building something out there for success – I just want to be part of that success with great people. I believe it will be a great experience for me to showcase my talent there.”

Blessman was named as the Most Valuable Player of the 2016-17 ASHSAA Football Season for the Varsity Division – he was also named “Impact Player” and was awarded the Impact Player Award after his performance in their match up against Hawaii West All-Stars.

When Rolo tweeted "#HanaPa'a #Fa'asamoax3!" most thought he was referring to Taufaasau, Pavihi and Tago. But I wonder if he he referring to Taufaasau, Pavihi and Taala, since he had already done a Hana Pa'a for Tago?
