Fia “The PolyBadger” Malepeai – Serra High School

Posted June 1, 2013 by in – Fia “PolyBadger” Malepeai is one of those players that you’d want on your team simply because he’ll give you 100% all the time. The 5’10”, 200lbs Serra Padres senior signed his letter of intent to play for the University of San Diego next fall. Fia is a “hard hitting, tenacious, scrappy player who just loves the game of football”, according to his coach Patrick Walsh.

His dad, Pep Malepeai said, “If you get hit by Fia, I don’t think you wanna get hit again because he just lays it out every single play.”
The oldest of four children, Fia is the first from his family to graduate and go to college.
