Central’s defensive tackle Kelepi Fifita accepted a scholarship to Northern Arizona University on Football National Letter of Intent signing day, February 5.  Fifita is 6-1, 275 pounds.

Fifita visitedthe campus a few weeks ago and was impressed. “The one thing I loved about NAU is the people there. They are friendlyand everyone likes to get to know each other, especially the football team.They took me in as one of their own. A team that sticks together as a familywill win games,” Kelepi said to azcentral.com last week. 

Football is not the only sport Fifita excels in.  He played for the USA Rugby National High School All-American Team in April, 2012, in Wellington, New Zealand against Wales, England North and France.
