The University of Hawaii has found the anti-Danny Woodhead.
David Fangupo, a 350-pound running back, has committed to Hawaii, according to West Hawaii Today. Fangupo played defensive tackle and offensive line prior to his senior season, but his head coach at Kealakehe High School saw a nimble runner in his 350-pound frame.
Fangupo rewarded his coach by running for 538 yards and 10 touchdowns on 74 carries. Kealakehe went 10-2 and won its third consecutive Big Island Interscholastic Federation title.
The big fullback said he doesn’t know where the Rainbows’ head coach, Norm Chow, will play him, and he doesn’t care.
“Whatever helps the team is good for me,” Fangupo said.
