He had 3 tackles at Washington and 2 each against Arkansas, Stanford and California.

    2004: Tofi was a reserve defensive tackle as a sophomore in 2004. He appeared in 5 games (Virginia Tech, BYU, Arizona State, Notre Dame and Oklahoma) in 2004, getting 2 tackles. He sprained his knee prior to the Colorado State game, forcing him out of that contest, and then re-sprained it at BYU, which sidelined him for the Stanford game. He had arthroscopic surgery to remove torn cartilage from his right knee prior to the Washington State game, forcing him to miss 3 games (Washington State, Oregon State and Arizona).

    2003: Tofi was a backup nose tackle behind Mike Patterson as a redshirt freshman in 2003. Overall in 2003 while appearing in 6 games (Hawaii, Stanford, Washington, Arizona, UCLA and Oregon State), he made 3 tackles (all versus Hawaii), including a sack for 21 yards (which was a safety against Hawaii), plus he had 2 deflections.

    2002: Tofi redshirted as a freshman defensive end in 2002, his first year at USC. He was USC's Defensive Service Team Player of the Year.

    HIGH SCHOOL: He was a 2-time (2000-01) All-Star (winning Defensive Line MVP in 2001) as a senior defensive end at Fagaitua (American Samoa) High. He had 49 tackles and 9 sacks in 2001. He also won a Samoa International Sports Award in 2001, which recognizes the achievements of Samoan athletes.

    PERSONAL: He's a sociology major at USC. His real first name is Tupula. His cousin, Suaese "Pooch" Taase, played football at Louisiana Tech.
