BYU lands another Pau’u

PROVO — It’s been a big weekend for the Pau’u family. After dropping off Butch Pau’u at school, his younger brother Neil took part in BYU’s camp. Neil is a 6-foot-4, 190 quarterback who will begin his junior year at Servite High School this coming season.

Neil went to the camp without any expectations, but was met with a scholarship offer after his performance and immediately accepted it.

“It was a great week and I loved everything about the camp,” said Neil. “The scrimmages were really intense and I was able to learn so much from Coach (Brandon) Doman and everyone else. I couldn’t believe it when they offered me, but I knew right away that BYU was where I wanted to play football.”

Neil has been a fan of BYU for a while, but seeing Butch on campus and how happy he was worked to increase his desire to be a Cougar.

“BYU puts Christ first and that’s the biggest thing for me,” said Neil. “You can also get a great education at BYU and it has such a great tradition. The LDS atmosphere is also something no other school has. You can go to school and play with others who have and live the same standards that I do — I love that about BYU.”

Neil was offered as a quarterback and will start on Servite’s varsity team this coming season. He is a very good athlete who could play a number of positions — playing at wide receiver for Servite’s varsity squad last season.

Like Butch, Neil plans on serving an LDS mission and will likely leave immediately after graduating from High School.
