Manti Te’o’s : Professional Basketball Player

American professional basketball player Justin Alaric Holiday, born on April 5, 1989, plays for the Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association (NBA)

Before his senior year started, To had already earned several college offers. He had 129 tackles, 11 sacks, and four touchdowns, leading his high school to its first-ever state victory that year.

Te’o had let several recruiters down by the time it came to announce his NFL Draft eligibility, particularly concerning his 40-yard sprint time.

His career was further hampered in 2014 when he fractured his foot. By the middle of the season, he had fully healed and was beginning to register his first interceptions and sacks.

Te’o, of Samoan origin, was born on January 26, 1991, in Laie, Hawaii. He has five siblings, including the sisters BrieAnne, Tiare, Eden, and Maya, and the brother Manasseh. He is the son of Brian and Ottilia Te’o.

Te’o rose to fame after persuading everyone that he had a sweetheart at Notre Dame who unfortunately passed away from leukemia.

He received multiple accolades while playing high school football at a prestigious school in Hawaii during his formative years.

He has a net worth of $ 3.5 million.
