Family or football?
At one time, Tyson Alualu thought he had to make that decision.
He had just graduated from Saint Louis as a two-time first-team all-state pick in football.
His girlfriend was pregnant and a football scholarship was waiting for him at California.
Two years later, with the help of Golden Bears head coach Jeff Tedford, Alualu is now living with his wife Desiree' and 2-year-old son Tyree' near the Berkeley campus.
Alualu plays both tackle and end on the defensive line for the sixth-ranked Golden Bears.
When he's not scoring touchdowns -- as he did last week against Arizona -- Alualu is busy making life comfortable for three new freshmen from Hawaii on the team.
Alualu and Kamehameha graduate Mika Kane anchor half of the starting defensive line for the Golden Bears, who have a pivotal showdown with Oregon tomorrow in Eugene.
