Bob Apisa, the first Samoan All-American football player, was a two-time All-American fullback on the Michigan State's 1965 and 1966 national championship teams. Duffy Daugherty recruited him from Honolulu as part of his Hawaiian pipeline.
Apisa's career was cut short by knee injuries, but he followed his college playing days with a long career in film in Hollywood as an actor and stunt supervisor.
