Bio

In the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Chargers made a trade with Arizona, moving up seven spots to No. 38 to select Manti Te’o, runner-up to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in voting for the 2012 Heisman Trophy. Te’o captured a host of national awards  after leading the Irish to an undefeated regular season and a date with Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. His award haul included the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, the Maxwell Award, the Lombardi Trophy, the Bednarik Award, the Nagurski Award, the Butkus Award, the Lott Trophy and the Notre Dame Monogram Club MVP Award after leading Notre Dame with 113 tackles and seven interceptions, third-most in the nation. A team captain, Te’o was also a consensus All-America both on the football field and inside the classroom.                         

A native of Laie, Hawaii on the island of Oahu, Te’o burst onto the national scene in 2010 when he led the Irish with 133 tackles as a sophomore. Awards began to pour in a year later after a team-leading 128-tackle junior season that included a career-high five sacks. Teo’s seven interceptions in 2012 set a Notre Dame record for linebackers and they were the most by a linebacker in the NCAA since 2000.
