Ex-UCLA lineman Manu Tuiasosopo elected to Polynesian Hall of Fame

Former UCLA defensive lineman Manu Tuiasosopo was chosen Tuesday as one of five new members of the Polynesian Hall of Fame.

Tuiasosopo played for the Bruins from 1975-78, going on to become a first round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 1979. He played five seasons in Seattle and three more with the San Francisco 49ers, winning a Super Bowl ring with the 49ers after the 1984 season.
