Rewind Wednesday: Jesse Sapolu

Every Wednesday, High School Football America’s Jeff Fisher will dive into his well-stocked treasure chest of interviews to talk with NFL players who love to talk about their love of high school football.

This week’s Rewind Wednesday takes you back to Jeff’s 2016 interview with NFL Legend Jesse Sapolu, winner of four Super Bowl rings with the San Francisco 49ers.

Sapolu played his high school football at Farrington High School in Hawaii. After being selected in the sixth round of the 1983 NFL Draft, Sapolu played 14 seasons at center and guard and is one of just six 49ers with four Super Bowl wins. 

He keeps his hands the game by holding camps for high school players to teach them the finer points of being an offensive lineman. He is also the co-founder of the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame, which produces the annual Polynesian All-American Bowl, an all-star game featuring nearly 100 of country’s best high school football players.
