Biography

Tenny Palepoi enjoyed a solid bounce-back season in 2016. Just a year removed from a season-ending foot injury suffered on the opening day of training camp in 2015, Palepoi played in 13 games in 2016 and finished the year with 23 tackles and 20 pressures.

Palepoi was one of only three undrafted rookies to make the Chargers’ opening day roster in 2014. He had a leg up in knowing what to expect in the NFL as his older brother, Anton, spent five years as a defensive end in the League with Seattle, Denver and Arizona. Also, their father, Tony, played professional rugby for Samoa’s National Team.

While Palepoi experienced the highs of playing in the NFL in 2014, he also endured a personal low. Just days before Thanksgiving, his older brother, Francis, passed away at the age of 42. Palepoi left the Chargers to attend his brother’s funeral during a time that is normally reserved for celebration. Shortly after the funeral, Palepoi rejoined his Chargers teammates and matched his season high with three tackles in a 34-33 road win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Palepoi and his wife, Delaney, have three children — daughters Taytum and Remi, and son Liam.
