Q: What would be your biggest dreams as a football player? My biggest dream as a football player would be to learn all I can and teach it to my little brother and my little cousin so they could grow up and be stronger, faster, smarter, and better than me. My second biggest dream would be to make it to the NFL so I can take care of my family the way they have taken care of me all of my life.
Q: Do you think it is important for people to know you are Polynesian? Why? No, I don't think it's important that people know that I'm Polynesian. Though I am proud of my Polynesian heritage, it is important that people know me for my faith, love in God, and dedication to my family.
Thank you Ms. Gago

Justice Alo Gears up for High School
(Youth1) - In the southwestern Utah city of St. George, a prodigious young talent named Justice Alo is tearing through the ranks. In 2010, he was selected to the Utah Warriors all-star team, and the next year was chosen for the Eastbay Youth-All American Bowl, FBU Utah National team All-American, and was on the Youth1’s Top Prospects lists for both offensive and defensive linemen. This year he made it to the Junior Rank Academic All-American Bowl, was selected to the Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl, and was selected to be a part of Team USA U15. Some athletes might want to slow down after that much hard work, but as Justice gears up for his first year as a high school player, he is pushing himself harder than ever before to improve.
For starters, he is attending the Junior Rank, 61 Athletes, and Aiga national camps. While he might normally play in all-star games as well, he has decided to prepare for high school instead. In particular, he is adjusting to physical growth (having gained a full inch since January) and has been hitting the weight room regularly. Already he is capable of running a 40-yard dash in five seconds, benching 225 lbs., and squatting 320 lbs. His father has also been training him on footwork and core muscle building. If that wasn’t enough, Justice also incorporates boxing training into his routine to round out his preparation.
Even with all this work, Justice isn’t sure what position he’ll be playing.
“I’d like to try out linebacker, but defensive end is my sweet spot, as well as offensive tackle or guard,” replied Alo.
He also has experience as a quarterback, which he believes gave him insight into how to play defense better. He’s not too concerned about what he’ll be playing, either. For now he just wants to gain more experience, get better at his technique, learn from others, and to help his team out. His two biggest goals for the upcoming season are to earn a starting position and maintain his honor roll.
With all of his accomplishments on the field, it’s easy to forget about his success in the classroom. He currently has a 3.91 GPA and was elected to student council. As his athletic aspirations grow, so do his academic, as he one day wants to study astronomy or engineering. When asked about colleges, he said his dream college has always been Notre Dame University due to the fact that he has watched them since he was 10 and they have an excellent academic program. His No. 2 dream school is Stanford, another academic heavyweight, but Justice says he would be happy to go anywhere where he could get a good education and a chance to prove himself on the field. He has already received interest from Brown University, Lafayette College, Sewanee University, and the University of Oregon. This might go to a lot of players’ heads, but not Justice.
“I am thankful for the interest and blessed to have these opportunities,” he said. All-in-all, it’s hard to argue with his guiding maxim.
“If I keep working hard, I will get where I am supposed to be,” commented Alo.
High school may be an adjustment, but Justice Alo is certainly willing to put in the hard work to make it a successful one.
