Fou Fonoti has sported the long hair that is accustomed to his Samoan brethren. But this offseason, the Michigan State junior offensive tackle has taken things to a new level. After missing the last 11 games of the 2012 season with a knee injury, Fonoti didn’t only work his knee back into playing condition, but he allowed his flow to grow.
Fellow offensive lineman sophomore Skyler Burkland tweeted a picture of the “Fou Fro” Thursday.
When asked this past season about Fonoti’s decision to return to East Lansing instead of testing the NFL waters, MSU offensive line coach Mark Staten said, “He has game experience, a high football I.Q., great leadership ability and a top notch head of hair.”
Fine, that quote may have been doctored a bit. Fonoti possesses excellent leadership ability.
