Unveiling Triumph: The Resilient Path of Manti Te’o

From his collegiate career at Notre Dame to his professional days with the National Football League (NFL), Manti Te’o career has been an inspiring tale to say the least.

Together with Fan Arch, we'll go into greater depth in the different moments of triumph, and hard times he faced and how one outweighed the other in his career. 

Early Years & College Football Domination

Manti Malietau Louis Te'o was born on January 26, 1991 in Laie, Hawaii and he was built to play the game of football from the day he stepped onto the earth.

He played highschool football at Punahou High School; where he showed his talent in football and led his team to the first state championship ever.

He won many awards in high school, including the Butkus Award (best linebacker in the country), for his excellent performance.

After high school, Te'o signed for the University of Notre Dame, and was doing so well on their football field.

With his impressive stats, the only man to have more sacks than him over the past two seasons, he was also awarded top defensive player in the nation and the second best player in the country. T

e'o was an All-American, Heisman Trophy finalist captivating the nation with his athletic prowess and his passion for the game.

Life as an NFL Pro

Manti Te'o, a star on the college football field, had moved on to the NFL Draft now that his amateur career was over. He had been drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2013 and his NFL journey was underway.

After overcoming injury and an uneven initial season, Te'o proved his mettle en route to a four-year deal worth $5.2 million with the Chargers.

Te'o then would go on to play for the New Orleans Saints and the Chicaco Bears.

Though he endured setbacks like both injuries and controversy, Te'o was above average on the gridiron, recording 400 career tackles and demonstrating a workmanlike approach to his craft.

His most lucrative year came in 2017 with the New Orleans Saints when he made roughly $5 million.

By our calculations, he earned more than $18 million in salary and marketing deals during his brief NFL run, the primary driver of his aforementioned $3,5 million net worth.

Though there are certainly better years ahead for Te'o, it hasn't been a flawless ride to this point and that commitment and toughness is evident when looking at his history in the pros.

Wins, Struggles, and Persistence

Of course, Manti Te'o faced some adversity in his career.

He became the subject of a catfishing scandal in 2013 which shed much light on his private life and affected his public profile.

But Te'o's willingness to face the scandal head-on was also a sign of the ND man's bravery and poise in a very trying time.

 

Legacy and Impact

Manti Te'o's story in the world of football clearly proves then on and off the field he stands out of his endurance and determination towards the game.

But both the controversies and the struggles paled in comparison to the legacy Te'o left behind that only started on the football field.

His is a warning to others, demonstrating the surveillance society and the cascading effects it can have when deception takes place.

On the whole

The story of Manti Te'o, since the start of his football career, is that of immense successes and struggles.

From his high school triumph to his days of playing collegiate and pro football, Teo's commitment to football, along with his ability to see beyond the obstacle, made a lasting impression on the football world.
