This simon poti kid is something to watch... He's been an all leaguer since Sophmore year... He's a great athlete, also he will be starting wide receiver. He comes from a good blood line... He is the son of Banning star LB in the late 70's early 80's Pua Poti... I believe that the OC Register has overlooked this kid...

Just something to look into
