June 17th – San Jose, CA
2018 GSF HS Football Showcase Most Outstanding WR
Class of 2019 WR/DB Malaki Rango, an expected star for the Serra Padres next year, dominated both sides of the ball in this period. On offense, his route running capabilities were what set him apart, allowing him to create wide open gaps between him and his defender. What he lacked in size and strength, he made up for with the efficiency and deceptions of his cuts as well as his straight speed. His signature moment came on a deep post route where he managed to snag a dying ball out of midair with one hand. On defense, he played lockdown coverage on many of the best receivers at the showcase, both in press and off techniques.

40-yard Dash: 4.5
Bench: 205
Clean: 205
Squat: 275
Vertical: 31″
Shuttle: 4.3

Malakai Sitiveni Rango is of Tongan and Italian heritage. His life consists of four main priorities: God, Family, Education, and Sports. He started playing many sports at a very young age, they consisted of soccer, baseball, rugby and football; rugby and football continued to be his passion. Malakai has been very blessed with great athletic abilities. He was Captain of the USA U-14 Rugby team that traveled to Hong Kong in 1996 to play in the Hong Kong 7’s tournament, he holds the record for the most touchdowns for the pop warner San Mateo Bulldogs football organization, and he was awarded Play of the Game by Cal High Sports for his kick return during the Serra Padre’s Championship game this year. Malakai aspires to further his education at a University, with the hopes to do so as a student-athlete. Although his passion lies in football, Malakai understands that the talents he has been blessed with are God given and his goal is to be all that he can be and achieve all that this world has to offer him.
