Desert Pines senior Poutasi Poutasi

It was supposed to be the best day ever for Senior Desert Pines lineman Poutasi Poutasi, but just a few hours after he signed his letter of intent to play for the University of California, Berkeley, Golden Bears football team, his mother passed away due to complications from diabetes.

Eleven other students from Desert Pines also signed that day to other colleges.

His Tweet from the Review-Journal read:

“My beautiful mother took her last breath today,” Poutasi tweeted. “Today was signing day, the day where I make her proud, the day where she can say, my son is going to school for free.

“My mom is the strongest person I’ll ever come to know, seeing her take her last breath was just unbelievable. I honestly thought you were going to stay with me forever, but God had other plans in mind.”
