One of the best moments in college football this weekend happened before LSU took the field and upset Georgia. Defensive end Breiden Fehoko was greeted by his dad when he was entering the stadium and was given an impromptu Haka.
The Haka, a traditional war dance used by a variety of island nations ahead of sporting events, is the ultimate sign of respect. It’s uncommon to see a father perform a Haka for his son, which made this one extremely emotional — though many of the fans in attendance may not have know it.
Fehoko, a native Hawaiian, helped lead the LSU defense to a dominating performance on Saturday that sacked Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm three times, and nabbed two interceptions en route to a 36-16 upset win.
Such an awesome moment.
