Checking in with the Vea's

About a year ago, TBS did an article on the Vea brothers and their journey from American Samoa to Nevada. Both brothers are now a year older and TBS caught up with them to find out what they have been up to.

William Vea, who is the younger of the two, is 6', 205 pounds and played fullback and linebacker for his Pahranagat Valley High School in Alamo, Nevada as a sophomore. He will be a junior next year. He was named first team all-conference in 2004 and looks to have another solid year in 2005.

George Vea will be a senior this fall. He is also 6' and 205 pounds. He played tailback and linebacker and was named the league's defensive MVP.

Both players went to BYU's basketball camp last week, but stopped by for a day at the football camp to do some drills.

"We had a fun time at BYU," William said. "George spoke with Coach Tidwell and he enjoyed visiting with him. BYU told him they will keep watching him this year to see if they will offer him a scholarship."

Right now, George, who is the only recruitable of the two, is hearing from Boise State, Utah, UNLV, and BYU.
